WINLESS Cobden could receive a boost to its Western District Golf Association pennant chances after the Easter bye.
Teenage ace Caleb Perry has crossed from rival Warrnambool and is available for Cobden's final two matches.
Cobden, which sits on the bottom of the division one scratch ladder with three defeats and faces relegation, meets Hamilton and Warrnambool in the final rounds.
Perry, 19, is up for selection after finishing his Golf Victoria colts pennant season with Commonwealth on Sunday.
The Warrnambool-based golfer, who plays off a handicap of plus-2, said he was excited to play for Cobden.
"We have a lot of good players in the side and the team has a lot of potential," he said.
"Dan Oakley is a well-known golfer, Ash Couch and Daniel Beard are good quality and Ash Quick is a well-known south-west player who has won a lot around the district."
Perry, who is completing a suspension imposed by his former club Warrnambool, has spent the past seven weeks playing for Commonwealth.
He had five wins, halved one match and had one draw in colts.
"It was a very good season. I was very happy with it," Perry said.
"The one loss I had it just wasn't my day, he (my opponent) was too good for me.
"Playing up the order, you're going to get good players."
Perry will play in the two-day Mount Gambier Gem Open this weekend.
Cobden captain Jarrod Schill said it had been a tough pennant campaign for his side.
He said the club would meet next week to decide its seven-man line-up for its penultimate match against Hamilton, to be played at Cobden.
Warrnambool 1 sits atop the division one scratch ladder with three wins.
Hamilton and Warrnambool 2 have two victories each and Portland and Port Fairy one win apiece.
