• Ladies Golf Report – Week ending 27th September 2019

  • The highlight of the week for our golfing ladies was our Captains Day on Wednesday. A day in which yours truly likes to set a few fun challenges for the girls and to top it off with a nice lunch, as a way of saying thankyou for all their support throughout the year. With the rules set out, 22 ladies teed off for the shotgun start, knowing there would be some laughs ahead. The “6,6,6” stableford format is always fun anyway as pairs add, multiply or pick the best, of their stableford scores. But then the conspiring of Course Superintendent Tony Cooksey and the Captain, to throw in some outrageous pin placements to choose from, added to the fun, giving the classic “risk versus reward” scenario. The results showed the risk to well and truly pay off for some and provided lots of lunchtime stories to tell. None more so than for winners of the day, Patsy Smiles and Lesley Anderson who were streets ahead with their mammoth 94 points! Runners Up were Millie Cumming and Meg Broomfield with 70 points and 3rd, Linda Terry and Nicki Cooper with 69. Line balls also went to Sam Bailey and Shirley Nolan with 55 and Lorraine Cullen and Marion Sargeant with 51. Nearest the pins went to Linda Brook on the 3rd, Sam Bailey on the 7th and Lyn Holland on the 16th. A final special chipping/putting challenge set by Blair and Daniel defeated most, but Nicki Cooper managed what even our two experts couldn’t do by holing out in 2. The day was topped off with a lovely BBQ lunch – huge thanks to the chef, my partner Michael Lamin, as well as Sheryl, Sue and Linda B who helped with food.
    Thursday saw 9 ladies travel to Euroa to play in their annual Bowl event. Linda Terry, Gayle Wells and Robyn Baker were defending as last year’s winners, but came out second this year to the victorious team from Seymour. Donna Sedgman was runner up in A grade with a very nice 34 points. Twelve ladies are heading to Eastern for their Bowl next week.
    On Saturday, it was Monthly Medal sponsored by MARKS SUPA IGA and DAVONS HAIR and despite some wild weather at times, Shelly Comerford maintained quite calm to win the medal with nett 75. Runner up just one behind on nett 76 was Linda Terry. Line Balls went to Glenis Skinner (77), Lesley Anderson (78), Gayle Wells (78) and Donna Sedgman (79). Glenis won the putting and Donna the nearest the pin on the 3rd.
    Earlier in the week for our 9 holes stableford event on Tuesday, Glenis Skinner was once again the in-form player to win with 17 points for Div 1. Lorraine Wilson took out Div 2 with 13 points.
