16th Annual Hacker Cup
Another successful Hacker Cup was held at the beautiful Dunes Golf Course in late January 2020. We have been really blessed over the years with the sensational weather and it was no different this year.
Scoring was a little lower than past years, with the newly crowned Hacker Cup Champion, Max Nolan accumulating 44 points off his handicap of 21. In a tightly packed field behind, Kelvin Jones was runner up on 43 points on countback from young Hayden Moulder by virtue of a superior 23 points on the back nine. Congratulations lads and Max, as scorer, handicapper, judge, jury and executioner I can confidentially say you’ll never win it again….

Also it was great to have two celebrities with us on the day, especially given our only regular celebrity Kerry Arthurs (sister of tennis great Wayne Arthurs) no longer chooses to play with us. Ex VFL legend Barry Mitchell and the youngest person to ever play for North Melbourne, Rob Petersen, joined us for the afternoon. We duly embarrassed them both and we’ll probably never see them back – but thanks anyway guys!
