2017 Bash’n’Dash – Bothwell Battle!


A foggy start at the Bothwell Bash’n’Dash

The 2017 Bash’n’Dash was held in the last days of Autumn, with a high quality field headed to the oldest golf course in the Southern Hemisphere – Ratho, at Bothwell.

A stellar line up of the Golfing World’s brightest stars nominated to contest the year’s 2nd Major. Leroy was back to defend his victory at Tarraleah last year; past winners Bas & Cravo were back for another crack; and Felix and Ian were searching for their first ever capture of the Auld (Mother’s Day) Mug.

Who would prevail on this largely unknown layout – the oldest in the Southern Hemisphere? Find out more, with the Treasurer’s Report below……………….

The Superstar of the first 5* years of GWT History


When you crunch the numbers its crystal clear that no one comes close to this man, BvR.

The first five years (plus a couple of pre-cursor events in 2010/11) of the Gentlemen’s World Tour produced some of the finest golfers in the history of the game. Names that will echo down the years – immortals such as Leroy, Felix, Ian, Cravo, Keithy, Matt L, Mr Sexy, Dr Gaz, Matt C, Stu, and Poolie. Of all of those Legends, Leroy stood tall, but one man stood higher than him, and even the tallest Barny bunker – Basil BvR.

The Aurora Curse

Betwixt 41 and 43 degrees latitude, Tasmania is far enough South to experience the Aurora Australis.

No one knows for sure why this beautiful heavenly phenomenon plays havoc with the golfing abilities of some members of the Gentlemen’s World Tour whenever they happen to make the Matchplay Masters Final – but it freakin’ does. Only Felix and Ian (who work for the Energy company, Aurora) are immune. And technically Basil as well, coz he’s so good, but the Curse lifts Ian and Felix’s powers so they are unbeatable.

Ian won the first 2 MM Titles, and Felix has won the next 3. No one else has ever won it. This is not luck. This is not coincidence. This is not random statistical chance. THIS. IS. THE. AURORA. CURSE.

GWT Player of the Year

Leroy picked up his 2nd Player of the Year Gong, with another cracker year. He started hot, winning the first two (Bougle and B’n’D). Both victories featured cheeky chip ins from miles away, as per usual. Congrats on another great year on Tour Mr Stevens!
