BMA Challenge Cup 2019
The last event of 2019 was one of the biggest and best turnouts the AMA (NSW) Golf Society has ever had, as golfers contested for the prestigious BMA Cup.
This year saw a record field of 62 players turn out at Terrey Hills Golf Club to contest the 84th BMA Challenge Cup on a superb summer morning. The Cup was presented to AMA by Dr H Rutherford Darling MS FRCS as a token of his appreciation of the courtesies extended to him during his teaching visit to NSW. It has since established a wonderful tradition among the golfing members of the AMA.
As always, Terrey Hills Golf Club was in pristine condition and, as the scores reflected, was at its competitive best.
The competition is traditionally a Par event and the results are as follows:
Albert & Mary Shepherd Trophy
Dr Ian Meakin
BMA CUP Winner
Dr Ross Glasson +2
BMA Cup Runner Up
Mr Michael Burke +1
Sponsors Cup Winner
Mr Stephen Nielsen +2

Congratulations to all the prize winners. Special mention must be made of the ultimate winner, Dr Ross Glasson. Ross has been a great supporter of the AMA (NSW) Golf Society over many years and rarely misses an event.
On behalf of AMA (NSW), Medical Secretary, Dr Robyn Napier, extended Seasons Greetings and wished all present a bright and prosperous New Year.
Our ‘hard luck story’ of the day goes to Prof Brian McCaughan, who after a sterling and courageous effort on the course, missed out on the 2BBB by one point. Next time Brian.
A special guest on the day was a brilliant young player from Concord Golf Club, Ms Doey Choi off a handicap of Plus 3. Still an amateur at this stage, but will be a name to watch in the not too distant future in the Ladies professional ranks.
Once again, the members recognised the magnificent organising skills of the Society’s organiser, Claudia Gillis, and thanked her for all her hard work throughout the year.
The Golfing Calendar for 2020 will be published as soon as possible, but in the meantime, the Autumn Cup will be held on Thursday 12 March 2020 at Concord Golf Club with a morning tee off.
Any inquiries about the Golf Society may be directed to Claudia at AMA (NSW).
Good golfing and best wishes to all members and their families for 2020.
