At the Gentlepersons’ World Tour, every Gent strives to bag Major trophies. Whilst we all love nailbiting finishes, let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to have the comfort of an easy
28 17 shot Bougle win like Basil had in 2012/13?
Who creams the opposition when they triumph? Who just scrapes over the line? Read on to find out.
Bas was our Player of the Year, with 2 wins and 2 x 2nd place finishes. Just awesome! Bas and Leroy are the only Gents to have won this gong.
2017 saw Basil Beaver (our World Number One), Stu McDougall (2016 Rookie sensation) , Matt Crawford (2015 MM Runner-Up) and the Good Doctor Gaz (2nd in the 2015 Rookie of the Year) return to Championship Golf. Sensational. Welcome back boys.
And there was lots of HOT GOLF.
The Winning Team! Andrew, Clyde, Howard and Heath of TTGGLOT. All hands on the Gents’ Cup!
After recently discovering that the World’s two most prestigious and elite Golfing Gentlemen’s/Gentleperson’s Associations happened to be located right here in Tasmania, it was decided that there must be a Cup held regularly to determine the best of the best.
This blog captures Gentlepersons’ records in the Matchplay Masters at the courses they’ve played. The big story would be Basil +1 million wins at Huonville, if anyone was foolish enough to play him there.

To mark Basil’s milestone of hitting 200 weeks at GWT World Number One, Cravo sat down with the great man for an in-depth conversation to learn more about who he is, how he does it, and what the future looks like.
Here’s an incomplete record of Matchplay Masters Round Robin reports that I’ve dragged out of our Vault, housed deep within a mountain in the Swiss Alps. Unfortunately we lost a few reports that were stored up against our aged gruyere cheeses and are now green piles of mould.
What remains is worth a read for the many thousands of GWT scholars out there, and for the players themselves to relive some of the old matches that have probably been forgotten.
Hello Esteemed Gents,
It has reached that time of year again where we do battle for the Match Play Masters, this year presented by the Aurora Curse.
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 Gentlemen: Handicaps: Felix (+20?), Leroy (+20?), Cravo (+18), Basil (+10)
The first ever Bash’n’Dash was played over 18 holes at Barnbougle in the Winter of 2012. The Committee initially considered 18 holes + a number of novelty holes (opposite handed, blindfolded, kick and a throw etc) but ruled that out as too whimsical.
Bridport turned it on with a cracker of a day, but who would bring the golf fireworks?
Bas got his first ever hole-in-one in 2019 on the 8th hole at Pitty!
Though Leroy, Felix and Tim J have been excruciatingly close more than once and Leroy has holed out from 120m in the fairway at Barny, no Gent has ever aced a hole in a GWT Major.
