Gratte Cup 2016

A strong field entered the Gratte Cup competition for 2016. It is an annual non-handicap event where a pool of low handicap players are paired with progressive partners of higher handicap and usually results in a good tight finish. This year was no exception. The tournament was ably managed by Golf Croquet Captain Anne Bunter and a field of 16 players competed for the cup.

The Gratte Cup was donated by the late Ethel Gratte as an Association Croquet Cup many years ago. It was replaced with a new Gratte Cup suppporting a golf croquet competition in the current format by her son, Stan Gratte OAM, a Geraldton identity.
