• Ladies Golf Report – Week ending May 21st

  • Golfing far and wide.

    The attention of these ladies was drawn to a nearby hole in a recent round. Was it the roar of the crowd?

    A dozen ladies made their way to Myrtleford last week to compete in their Bowl event, but sadly, no trophies were brought home.

    Best result on the day came from Patsy Smiles, who was runner up in B Grade.

    A big contingent of golfers has made its way to Mildura for the Tri-State golf this week, so hopefully, there may be some stellar performances from the local crew.

    This promises to be a great week, with competition golf on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, ‘social’ rounds on Tuesday and Thursday, a cocktail party, wine tasting, barbeques, a dinner dance cruise, social bowls and the presentation dinner – who cares about the golf results?

    Perhaps because of the numbers going out of town, fields were sparse in the local competitions.

    Tuesday’s nine hole was won by Marion Sargeant with 18 stableford points, from Glenis Skinner on 17.

    The stroke round on Wednesday attracted only 15 golfers and was won by Marion Sargeant with a very good 71 nett.

    Second was Marion Mitchell on 72, with line balls going to Nikki Coffey on 74, Millie Cumming on 75, Norma Friday on 76 and Shelly Comerford on 77.

    Nicki Cooper kept up her accuracy, with nearest the pin on the seventh and the Pro Pin third, while Norma Friday took nearest the pin on the 16th.

    Dead eye Millie Cumming won both the Closest Chip and the Closest Putt, while Marion Mitchell took out the overall putting.

    Thursday’s nine hole was, as usual, won by Kay Rose and on Saturday a small field of ladies contested the Four Ball Better Ball. The winning team was Watkins and Wilson who came in with 35 Stableford points.

    Hopefully, next week’s column will feature news of heroic deeds on the Tri State courses this week – along with all the fun, it is certain that Mansfield’s ladies will be giving it their all.
