Twin Creeks Golf & Country Club have claimed bragging rights over near neighbours Penrith Golf Club, in the Division II Metropolitan Major Pennant Final.

Led by wins from Matt DeVries (4/3), Tyrone Emtage (7/6), Justin McMilan (6/4) and Jeremy White (4/3), Twin Creeks took an early lead in the Final and could not be run down by a plucky Penrith team.

Jeff Gadd (4/3) was Penrith’s only winner, with both Wil Arnold and Dan Smyth’s matches declared as halvers after Twin Creeks registered the required four wins to claim the Pennant.

The full Twin Creeks squad was: Matt Devries, Chris McMillan, Tyrone Emtage (captain), Justin McMillan, Jeremy White, Wayne Loveridge, John Glasheen (vice captain), James Tolomeo, Paul Borg, Jordan Bratusa, manager Glenn Johnston.

Twin Creeks and Penrith have both won promotion to Division 1 in 2021, for the first time in the history of both western Sydney Clubs.

Penrith’s squad in 2020 was: Dale Hughes, Craig Montgomery, Chris Lawler, Jeff Gadd, Alex Platts, Wil Arnold, Daniel Smyth, Peter Morris, David Bishop, Blake Murray, Michael Organ, Blade Gadd, manager Ian Gallagher.
