The final round of the inaugural Scroungers Winter Cup was held on Sunday, September 30 at the Karratha Golf Club.

The competition spanned 12 weeks, with a fluctuating field of about 50 players fighting to qualify by playing at least seven of the 12 rounds.

Each week after seven weeks had passed more and more players qualified in the top 10. Coming into the final day, the score to beat was 143 and the competition was fierce.

Marguerite Jacka brought home the win by first winning the day with a resounding 23 Stableford points, increasing her overall total to a fantastic 145 points and picking up the $500 in prize money as well as the $230 kitty for the day.

This last round of the competition incorporated a “shootout” or mini open for the day, with second prize going to Peter Newbold on 22 points and third to Rob Smith on 21 points.
