• Ladies Golf Report – Week ending 12th May 2019

  • Another ripper of a week for our “rookie” golfer Linda Brook. Ever willing to travel for a game of golf, she headed off to Euroa for their tournament, and came in with a nett 64 to clean up for the day with best nett overall, and of course, then winning the C Grade! Well done Linda! It won’t take many years before she is winning our championship…watch out everyone!
    At home, Tuesday saw 9 ladies have a hit for their 9-hole stableford comp with Shelly Comerford taking out Div 1 with 16 points and Wendy Hunt Div 2 with 17 points. On Wednesday it was Par. None of us like this form of the game much but as I pointed out, why does minus 6 for Par sound so much worse than 30 points in Stableford, when they really are the same result! It certainly didn’t faze Shelly Comerford anyway, given she came away with her second win for the week with -1. Shirley Nolan was runner up with -3. Line balls went to Sam Bailey, Donnalee Ross, Linda Terry, Louise Calvert-Jones, Margie Franke-Williams, Sue Parsons and Gayle Wells (and as promised I’m not mentioning the scores!). Sue Parsons won the NTP on the 3rd, Nicki Cooper the closest chip and Shirley Nolan the Closest 3rd shot on the 18th.
    On Thursday it was lovely to see Anne Tilbrook win the 9-hole stableford comp with 15 points. Anne has recently returned to golf after an absence of many years – welcome back to golf and the winners circle Anne! Sue Parsons won Div 1 with 14.

    Winners of the Glen Foursomes, Graham Clarke and Shirley Nolan are presented with the trophy by Naida Hutton (nee Glen).

    Saturday was the Glen Foursomes event which is sponsored by the Glen family in memory of their parents Bill and Shirley Glen who were life members of our club. Their daughter Naida presented the trophy and prizes on behalf of herself and her sister Jenny. Winners of the event and the sterling silver Cup, were Shirley Nolan and Graham Clarke on a countback from Runners Up, Lesley Anderson and Sam Sandhu. NTP’s for the ladies went to Sam Bailey on the 3rd, Millie Cumming on the 7th and Donna Sedgman on the 16th. We were very grateful to Naida and her husband Barney for making the long trip from Winchlesea, where they now live, to make the presentations.
