• Ladies Golf Report – Week ending 28th July 2019

  • This week kicked off with a fun practice session on the driving range bringing together some of our experienced ladies with ten ladies who are quite new to the game. While buckets of balls were hit, our Professional Daniel Robertson gave some great tips and advice and our experienced ladies were on hand to provide encouragement and answer questions. But the idea was as much about introducing ladies who are new to golf to our club and some of our lady members and to have a social get together over coffee and cake afterwards. We have another 3 similar sessions planned, with the next being on Sunday 4th August and we already have more ladies lining up to take part. Any ladies interested can find more information on www.mansfieldgolfclub.com.au
    Meanwhile numbers for our comps are well down as many ladies have escaped to the warmer north for winter. No players for our 9 hole comp on Tuesday and 3 on Thursday, which was won by Anne Watkins.

    On Wednesday, ten ladies tried their hand at Par Bisque which is an interesting variation on the regular Par game, requiring some strategic thinking. While the concept took a little understanding, it certainly resulted in some laughs. Glenis Skinner had a good handle on the game however and was in form to win the day with a square. Nikki Coffey was runner up on a countback from Sue Parsons, both with -2, and line balls went Marion Mitchell -3 and Lyn Poulson and Marg Knapp both -4.
    The ladies contested their monthly medal on Saturday. Scores were indicative of the heavier conditions at the moment, but Marion Mitchell had a handle on things and brought home the win with a nett 81, just pipping Sue Parsons on a countback. Millie Cumming won the nearest to the pin on the 3rd and Louise Calvert-Jones was in form with her putter to win the daily putting competition. Our thanks go to our July Monthly Medal sponsor, Mansfield Newsagency.
    This week, our Wednesday competition is our annual Anti-Cancer Bowl event and we encourage as many ladies as possible to come along and play. We compete for the Bowl as well as remembering those who we have lost to cancer and fund raising for the Anti-Cancer Council.
