Victorian Rory Bourke continued his winning form by recording a brilliant five under par 67 to take top honours in the fourth edition of the Urban Quarter Dunsborough Lakes Pro-Am.

Despite a strong breeze on a cool day, Bourke scored seven birdies and dropped only two shots to record a new course record, upstaging a strong field of PGA Professionals that included multiple Australian major events winner Peter Lon-ard.

Sitting only one shot behind Bourke was Andrew Schonewille with 4 under 68.

Third spot was secured by former Augusta National Masters participant Antonio Murdaca at three under 69, followed by Daniel Hoeve, Michael Long, Brad Moules, Brody Martin and Brady Watt, all shooting a two under par 70 to tie in fourth.

In all, 33 teams, each featuring a pro partner, competed for a generous collection of prizes.

The winning team was local members Vivienne Allan and Kaye and John Wright, partnered by long-hitting Anthony Marchesani.

Fellow members Alan Jones, Col Drummond and Roger Richardson and pro Schonewille were runners-up.

The event was played on a course in outstanding condition, overseen by Oliver Bell and the grounds team.

Board chairman Geoff Jones was pleased to accept the winning scorecard passed on by PGA manager, Kim Felton, which will be framed and exhibited in the clubhouse as the history of this popular event continues to build.

Tournament director Len Thomas said the event was a great success.

“Dunsborough Lakes Golf Club pro Matt Criss was a great performer and the event gets better every year,” he said.
