Jason Habel celebrated an A grade success as the Streaky Bay Men's Golf Championship concluded on Sunday.

The third and final round of the Streaky Bay Fooland/Kel Redding Men's Golf Championship took place in contrasting conditions on Sunday afternoon.

Only 11 players competed in the final round, with many other players taking advantage of the unseasonably hot and calm conditions to pursue other interests.

Conditions were very warm, with little wind until a strong southerly change blew in at the end of the day which provided additional challenges for those who had a few holes still left to play.

The best two round of the three championship rounds were counted to decide the overall winners.

Habel won the A grade championship prize thanks to two scores of 83 and 82, finishing just ahead of runner-up Nigel Brace with 84 and 83.

The B grade championship victory went to John Flaherty with 92 and 87, with Ty Redden was the runner-up after carding 93 and 88.

Taking out the C grade championship was Andy McLeod with scores of 96 and 98.

The A grade's championship handicap winner was Brace with two scores of 72, to take the victory ahead of Harry Verstappen with scores of 81 and 77.

Graham Redding was awarded the B grade championship handicap prize after carding 71 and 73, with Flaherty the runner-up after his two best handicap scores were 71 and 74.

The C grade handicap championship winner was McLeod with scores of 74 and 76.

Brace was the daily winner from the third round in division one, while Chris Roberts was named the division two winner.

Swinging well to grab the long drive prize in the A grade was Ian Richter, while Dion Gilmore was the winner in the B grade and McLeod took out the C grade award.

The nearest to the pin in the A grade was Dan Gazzola, with Redden grabbing that accolade in the B grade.
