• Ladies Golf Report – Week ending 4th August 2019

  • A busy week of golf for our ladies. Four of our girls took part in the North East 4BBB Championships in Wodonga last Sunday. It was glorious weather and so no excuses for bad golf, but while we didn’t disgrace ourselves, the trophies went to others!

    The next day the same group plus one, travelled across to Corowa to play in the monthly Vets event. What a difference a day makes….this time we were met with pouring rain and many chose to pull out, but I’m proud to report that the 5 Mansfield ladies stuck it out and in fact had a successful day with Louise Calvert-Jones being runner up on a countback with Linda Terry in 3rd place, while Marion Sargeant and Louise Calvert-Jones were in the winning 3-person team and Shelly Comerford picked up a nearest-the-pin.

    Back at home, the Tuesday 9-hole comp was won by Glenis Skinner with nett 42 and Thursday’s 9-hole stableford by Kay Rose.

    Wednesday was a special day in the ladies’ syllabus when we played for the Anti-Cancer Bowl. With a history of 40 years, this event allows us to remember those ladies from our Club, who we have lost to cancer. Marion Mitchell was honoured to take out the stableford event this year with 29 points. Runner up was Sue Parsons with 28. Line balls went to Kay Rose, Glenis Skinner, Anne Watkins, Louise Calvert-Jones and Linda Terry. Linda Terry also had a nearest the pin on the 16th, Sue Parsons the closest 3rd shot on the 18th and Norma Friday won the chipping/putting combination challenge. Our ladies have for many years also used this day to run a raffle to raise funds for the Anti-Cancer Council. Anne Watkins has been the driving force organising the raffle for most of the 40 year history, but has decided it’s time to step down from this role. Going out on a high note she handed over nearly $1000 raised this year and the ladies presented her with a plant by way of thanks for her years of hard work.

    Lastly, Saturday’s stroke round was won by Sheryl Sargent with nett 80 on a countback with Marion Foster.
