2019 Don Reyland Stars

Players from around the country converged on Morrinsville Croquet Club over the weekend to contest the premier GC Handicap event in the country, The Don Reyland Stars Tournament.  13 Associations were represented by players who had won through their respective club and Association play-offs for the right to contest the National Title.

This season saw a wide range of handicaps from a -4 right up to a 10.

After a single round robin was played, Hamish McIntosh (Auckland, -4) and Robbie Spooner (Wellington, 3) found themselves locked at 10 wins each.  McIntosh was the only person standing in the way of Spooner claiming his third title in as many weekends having already secured the Arthur Ross Memorial Final and CA Gold Cup Invitation titles.

In the final, Spooner was looking to reverse his fortunes from the round robin having lost to McIntosh 0-7 previously in the tournament.  McIntosh, however, was too good securing the title with a 7-4 win over Spooner in the final.
