On Sunday 30 October 2022 the final contest in the 2022 Junior Pennant series was able to be played following months of turmoil caused by "the big wet". Unfortunately, the series was badly impacted by the weather and resultant conditions of the courses and a number of contests, which had no bearing on the outcome of the series, had to be abandoned.
Toukley had a strong season and, luckily, were able to finish scheduled contests on time and won 5 of their scheduled 6 contests compiling 10 premiership points. With a number of washed out contests needing to be played Shelly Beach was the only contender in the end but had to endure some months between contests and needed to secure wins against both Everglades and Gosford to finish an unbeaten season, accumulate 12 points and claim the Pennant.
In the end it all came down to the last contest between Gosford and Shelly Beach which was played at Everglades on 30 October and Shelly Beach proved too strong for Gosford capturing all 6 matches and the necessary 2 points to clinch the title. Congratulation to Shelly Beach on another successful campaign.
The Association extends its appreciation to all of the clubs which entered teams, some of which were very small, young and inexperienced. The talent on display was more than encouraging and there is little doubt that these youngsters are the stars of tomorrow.
The table below has been adjusted to reflect the Shelly Beach win but as a number of contests were abandoned (and there is no provision in the COP for a draw) the number of contests played, individual matches won etc cannot be reconciled.

The 2022 senior Pennant concluded on Sunday 6 November when Shelly Beach faced Wyong in the "A" grade decider at Everglades.
The course was nice and dry after the recent warm but windy days and some great golf was played by both sides but in the end Shelly Beach proved too strong taking the contest 4.5 matches to 2.5. The Reserve match also fell to Shelly Beach.
As a result of this contest Shelly Beach now joins Gosford ("B" grade) and Mangrove Mt ("C" grade) in the winners circle for 2022.
Congratulations to you all.
The Pennant series might be finished but play in the 2022 Sterland Shield continues with Everglades to face Wyong in all 3 grades. The outcome of that contest will determine whether Everglades retains the Shield or has to hand it over to Gosford. Dates, times and venues for these outstanding contests will be promulgated as soon as arrangements are made.
Final standings as at 6 November are:
