    Default Ozgolf Championship Trophy

    I'll run this poll for 5 days only since the Ozgolf Champs are less than 3 weeks away. I've chosen a few from the Metropolitan Trophies website that AndyP pointed me to.

    Hopefully, the Ozgolf Championships will become an anual event and this trophy its coveted prize. This could be history in the making ...

    This poll is open for all Ozgolfers, not just the guys coming to the Cool-Tweed event this year.

    I was thinking of engraving "Ozgolf Champion" on the base of the trophy. Or "Ozgolf.net Champion". If you have any other suggestions, please post here.

    Also, if you have any suggestion for the name of the trophy, please post here.

    John - is the last option supposed to be a double negative that implies any trophy will do?

    We don't have to get the trophy from this website. It's just one that popped up in an internet search.

    There is a trophy place within a walkable distance from the city that I could go and check out. I think they only need a weeks notice to do their stuff.

    I think the cup itself needs to be engraved with OZgolf.net Champion. Then each year, the year and name gets engraved on the base plates. Unless we do it the other way round.

    The third or fourth one for me, probably the third because of cost.

    I say number 3 too. It's the best looking in my opinion.

    Mandy,
    I don't think it was meant to be a double negative... Just a way of saying that someone doesn't want a trophy....

    What about a plaque or something small (and cheap) that the winner gets to keep after he (or she) has returned the trophy the next year??

    Totally agree. I'm sure it can be arranged.

    Let's run this poll to see which trophy people prefer. If you can find something similar (looks/size/price) locally, we can go with that. Or we can order from these guys on the net. I think we should get the trophy sorted out by end of next week.

    I think the first way is better. Large letters for Ozgolf.net Champion on the cup and then smaller lettering for the winners on the base.

    I don't want to dampen the spirit, but this is all a little glam?!

    Whale.
    Spraypaint.
    Plate on sole to engrave.

    And it's cheaper than those trophies

    I can't recall the owner giving permission to do that.
    Hang on, I think Macca has it.

    I think if we're going to play with the whale it might as well be mounted. So you can put smaller plates on the base of its stand....So the whale can be enjoyed for years to come.....

    That's exactly what I was just thinking. Not overly expensive, but still classy. We have one for the family tipping comp

    If trophy number 3 gets chosen, it's $60. Divide that amongst 20 players, and it works out 3 bucks each. Not a big price to pay for a nice trophy that should last for years to come (and it will provide one incentive to keep the Ozgolf Championships going each year).

    Drunken, can you provide a photo of the shield you are talking about? Thanks.

    Give us a look at this shield, or provide a link to something similar on the Metro trophies site. Otherwise we will just go with a cup like the third option.
    We are running out of time.
