2024 01 news sheen panelThe club heartily welcomes new partner Sheen Panel Service as the naming rights sponsor of the club’s annual Legends Tour pro-am.

Some at the club might already have met new member Josh Hewlett, who oversees Sheen’s Ocean Grove and Drysdale shops. If not, please make him welcome and thank his company for their support of a great day on our calendar, this year to be played on 20 February.

“We are delighted to have the Sheen team on board for our pro-am,” chief executive Michael Phillips said.

“They’ve got some great ideas to help us grow the tournament, but just as importantly, Josh wants to get involved across the club and be part of its fabric with us all through the year.

“Tee up a game with Josh and – touch wood you don’t need to worry about this – keep Sheen at the forefront of your mind if you or your family have a little fender bender.”

Josh, a skillful left-hander whose game will thrive if and when work permits, is equally thrilled that Sheen has become a valued partner of Portarlington Golf Club.

“We want to be a part of the Bellarine community and keep things local for as many of us as possible,” he said.

“So fingers crossed you don’t need to see me professionally too often, but remember we’re there if you need us and I’d love to see you around the club on a social basis.”

Following the success of what was effectively an impromptu Skins Game last year, plans are in train to have that fan favourite back again in 2024, this time on 19 February.

We can confirm that Matt Milne has already secretly gone into training to try to wrestle a few bucks out of the touring pros’ pockets in Skins Game 2.

But we’re also working on an afternoon of fun on the lawn outside the clubhouse with food, music and maybe even a couple of “master classes” from the pros.

Stay tuned, more information soon!
