Sorrento Ladies Open Championship
Kono Matsumoto – 2019 Sorrento Ladies Open Champion
A field of 23 players from clubs across Victoria competed in the 2019 Sorrento Ladies Open (Incorporating the AS Patterson Trophy). Players enjoyed a fine Mornington Peninsula Spring day that was quite blustery at times.
Congratulations to Kono Matsumoto from the Victoria Golf Club on winning the 2019 Sorrento Ladies Open. Kono fired a fine score of 76 gross to win the gross section by four shots from Gracie Larsen from the Kingston Heath Golf Club on 80.
The nett section was won by Kerry Henningsen from the Huntingdale Golf Club with a fine nett score of 73. Sorrento Member Ginny Reid was runner-up on a count back with 74 nett.
Congratulations to all competitors.

Dorning and Vogel Win Men’s & Women’s Sorrento Open Amateur Championships
David Dorning (The National) has taken out the 2019 Men’s Sorrento Open Amateur played on Sunday 2nd June.
After the morning round, Dorning found himself four off the pace, with Darcy Brereton (Royal Melbourne), Harry Goakes (Royal Melbourne) and Tom Limon (The National) all firing impressive rounds of two-under par 68 in perfect conditions to sit atop of the leaderboard. Lukas Michel was one shot behind the pack while Jack Deftereos-Brennan and Edward Donoghue were a further shot adrift.

But Dorning came out of the blocks firing in the afternoon, making four birdies in his first five holes after starting on the 7th hole. After a couple of bogies, birdies on 18, 1 and 3 saw Dorning knocking on the door of an unbelievable round of golf, as the rain came in and the cold wind picked up. However a double on the par-3 5th and bogey on the difficult par-4 6th brought him back to 2-under for the round, but it was enough to take out the event by one shot from Edward Donoghue (Metropolitan – 70, 71 – 141). The trio of Andre Lautee (Kingston Heath), Harry Goakes and Darcy Brereton were all a further one shot back. Michael Stirling (Woodlands) took out the nett section, putting two very solid rounds of 70, 68 (h’cap – 3) together to win by four shots.
In the Women’s section, Cobram Barooga’s Steffanie Vogel proved too strong for her rivals, carding great rounds of 71, 68 for an impressive 3-under total to take out the event by one shot from Piper Stubbs (Huntingdale).

In what was a race between two, Vogel and Stubbs were neck and neck for most of the day, both posting even par-rounds of 71 in the morning. While Vogel was a little slow out of the blocks in the afternoon (starting on 15), she turned it on mid-round, making four birdies in a row from the 4th to the 7th holes to edge in front of Stubbs who managed to birdie 3, 4 and 7 herself after a double bogey on the 1st. Late birdies on 12 and 13 for Stubbs gave her a chance, but a costly bogey on her last hole of the day (14th) saw her miss by one and Vogel was the Champion!
Molly McLean took out the nett section with fantastic scores of 69, 66 in tough conditions.
Congratulations to David and Steffanie on their victories and thank you to all those who supported the event. Also, a big thank you to our wonderful volunteers – Marshall Oppy, Marc Johnson, Chrissy Skinner, Marg Batrouney and Brian Thomas for assisting on the day.
