A very strong field took to the course for the 2017 Macedon Ranges Spring Cup. The event, sponsored by Drummond Golf, Niddrie was both an individual and club challenge event. With both RGC and MMGC sharing the honours over the previous years it was a good chance for RGC to take bragging rights by beating MMGC on their home ground. The round began under clear sunny conditions with a steady southerly wind for almost all the front nine. MMGC was in wonderful condition, excellent fairway cover and well trimmed rough. The greens were fast but once on line they putted very true. Despite the conditions to was difficult to card a good score ad the teams event proved to be very lopsided with he locals recording a strong victory. The day was played in good spirits, on a wonderful day for golf the results were;
Club Challenge – MMGC 476 D RGC 360
A Grade Winner; Marcus Ward (MMGC) – 34 pts from Jerome Langmaid (MMGC) 33 pts
