    After the massive excitement of the last few weeks, ladies golf has settled back to normal.

    Two teams travelled to Benalla for their Bowl last Thursday – beautiful weather for golf and a course in great condition, though the kangaroos considerably outnumbered the 124 golfers.

    No joy for Mansfield this time – not even a raffle win, but a great day spent with good company.

    Tuesday’s nine hole stableford was won by Meg Broomfield with 18 points, with Nikki Coffey second with 15.

    Wednesday’s 18 hole stroke was contested by 21 players in two divisions, with Sue Parsons winning Division One with 76 and Nikki Coffey taking Division two with 73.

    Runners up were Nicki Cooper (Division One), also with 76 and Wendy Hunt (Division Two) with 74.

    Nearest the pin went to Lyn Poulson on the third and Robyn Baker won the putting for the round.

    Nikki Coffey won the Hidden Holes, Andrea Marsden the 18th hole Shootout and Marion Foster the Special Putting.

    Line balls went to Marion Mitchell (76), Marion Sargeant (77), Andrea Marsden, Lyn Poulson, Shirley Nolan and Robyn Baker, all on 78.

    Thursday’s nine hole stableford was won by Pam Abbott with 16.

    The 27 hole Glen Foursomes were contested on Saturday.

    This is a great event, contested by mixed teams , which gives the men and women golfers a chance to team up for the day.

    Winners were Tony Pridham and Marion Foster with a total of 104, second were Phil Conway and Lesley Anderson with 105.5 and third were Rod Sargent and Millie Cumming with 106.

    Nearest the pins were Clive Marsden and Sue Parsons on the seventh and 16th and Phil Conway and Lesley Anderson on the 12th.

    Ladies are reminded to enter for the club championships starting on Wednesday May 11, and running for three weeks.

    You need to be in it to win it.
