".....it (Port Fairy) is the best value golf in the world - without question." Golf Australia
THE Port Fairy Golf Club has claimed the prestigious Corangamite District Golf Association division one scratch championship.
The division one crown topped an amazing performance from the club, which also won the division three and four scratch titles, as well as the division three handicap crown.
The finals were held last Sunday at the Port Fairy Golf Club where the home teams made the most of their familiar surroundings. The teams have been competing over the past six weeks, with the two best performed in each of the seven divisions reaching last Sunday's finals.
Port Fairy entered teams in all seven divisions, with the division one, two and three handicap teams missing out on the finals.
But for the four teams that did make it, there was no disappointment with all four getting their hands on the trophies at the end of the day.
The division one scratch team defeated Colac, division three scratch accounted for East Framlingham, division four scratch triumphed over Birregurra and the Port Fairy division three handicap team defeated Timboon.
Port Fairy Golf Club manager Kerry Bond said the club was thrilled with the results.
"The standard of the golf was very high and to win four of the divisions was very pleasing," she said.
"The division one scratch is the jewel in the crown of the championships, so it was a big thing for our club to claim that title.
"The final being played on our home course was an advantage, but you still have to play well enough to win."
While there has been plenty of action on the golf course, there is also a major project under way off it.
The foundations have been dug for the new shed that will be used to store golf carts.
It is being built to replace the old shed that burnt down last year.
