Max Kroger

Singles Knockout Competition

Handicap (originally) difference between handicaps (now 2012- full handicap difference)

Max Kroger kindly donated this trophy for associates to play for in May 1938.  Max served on committee at East Geelong for some 33 years.  He was Club Secretary from 1931- 1938, Captain 1939- 1948, President 1949- 1958 and Vice President from 1959- until 1964

Max played off scratch at East Geelong and won club championships in 1936, 37, 38, 39, 40 and again in 1949

Max, along with his brother Jack had always had vision of developing a links course within the district, mainly due to the uncertainty of the lease provisions at East.  In March 1947, Max seized the opportunity to purchase land in the Drysdale area on behalf of East Geelong Golf Club.  This land, after many hardships were overcome, is now the well established, Curlewis Golf Club.

In May 1942 (presumably because of the war), the Max Kroger trophy along with the Jessie Winnicott Shield were decided to be abandoned for the duration.  Both events resumed and still continue to be played for.

Max was a foundation member of GDGA (Geelong District Golf Association)

Max held the distinction of being elected Life Member at both East Geelong and Curlewis Golf clubs.

Max died in 1989

Lil Sweeten Perpetual Salver

 The event for this trophy is two rounds of stroke play with the winner determined by the best nett score.

To be eligible to enter this event, members must be 60 years or over and is commonly known as “The Veterans Trophy”

Lil became a member of East Geelong Golf Club on 28 May 1956, and became a committee member in 1960.  Lil served as the Treasurer from 1970- 1979.

Lil, never one to upset anyone was known as the “two handed voter”, her hand would go up for the yes vote and just as quickly go up for the no vote, thus she was never accused of taking sides or favouring one against the other.

A “C” grade pennant player and active club member, Lil was given the esteem of being made a Life Member of East Geelong in 1980, in recognition and gratitude for her services to the club and the many years she had served on committee.

The first round of this event was played for in 1994 after Lil kindly donated this salver.

Commonly know as “Aunty Lil” to may of the lady members, for her friendship and support.  Lil has played “Mother Christmas” at the ladies annual Christmas breakup for many years.

Sadly Lil passed away in 1998 and the family, knowing how much she enjoyed her time spent at East Geelong, and with her friends she had made, felt she would feel at rest and comfortable under the gum tree behind the 1st tee and her ashes were duly scattered there.
