The Whales Tooth trophy is a competition between The Australian Golf Club and Bowral Golf Club which dates back to 1930. In the sixties, Bowral Golf Club donated the Whales Tooth trophy which was a fine example of the whalers’ art of scrimshaw. Unfortunately, this trophy and all records were destroyed in the Clubhouse fire of 1982. The current trophy dates back to 1983. The competition was played bi-annually until 2009 and annually thereafter. This year the event was hosted at The Australian Golf Club.
The Australian Golf Club narrowly defeated Bowral Golf Club on Thursday, 9 March with a score of 9 matches to 7 matches. The favourable result was largely due to the AGC ladies representatives who won 3.5 matches to 1.5 matches. The post match dinner was highlighted by tributes to John Rowan who has retired after 20 years as coordinator for the team.
New participants are welcome and should contact Dan Kytic, Golf Administration Manager who is now in charge of coordinating this event. The 2019 event is expected to be held in early March next year at Bowral Golf Club in the Southern Highlands.
