• Ladies Golf Report – Week ending 29th September 2019

  • Our golfing week started with 12 ladies playing at Eastern Golf Club in the Yarra Valley for their annual Bowl and 4BBB event All our scores were very respectable, but just not quite up there to bring home the trophy. Best of the Mansfield ladies were the pairings of Sheryl Sargent and Sue Parsons, and Shelly Comerford and Lesley Anderson, both pairs having 39 points. The overnight stay the night before was as memorable as the golf and a lot of laughs were had.

    It was great to see up couple of our new lady members having a hit in the 9 hole comp on Tuesday. Winner however was the ever-steady Kay Rose.
    On Wednesday, a good field of 21 headed out for a stroke round. Coming in winner overall and of Div 1, with a lovely net 72 was Donna Sedgman. Runner up in Div 1 was Marg Knapp with net 74. Div 2 was won by Jenny Foster with net 73 and runner up Linda Brook with net 74. Line balls went to Glenis Skinner (75), Marion Mitchell (75) Shelly Comerford (77), Patsy Smiles (77) and Linda Terry (78). For the special prizes, the nearest the pin on the 7th and the putting went to Donna Sedgman, the 3rd shot on the 18th, Shelly Comerford, the Hidden Holes, Jenny Foster and the Chipping contest was won by Linda Terry.
    On Thursday it was pleasing to see one of our new members, Barbara Crawford, take the win of the nine hole stableford event. Then on Saturday for the early start mixed ambrose event (before everyone hibernates to watch the AFL grand final) the ladies side was held up by the pairing of Louise Calvert-Jones with her son James, taking out 3rd place amongst the field of otherwise all male pairs!
    We are very excited that a dozen ladies have signed up for a trial membership for 6 months to give golf a go, and their first clinic will be held this week. We hope that many of them will catch the golfing bug and we will see them out there as regulars in the near future and be seeing their names mentioned in future golf reports!
    The ladies also start their Championships this week and with beautiful weather and course conditions I look forward to seeing some great scores. Good luck to all the girls who are taking part.
