• Golf Report – Week ending 6th August 2017

  • LAST Wednesday, the ladies golf committee hosted a very enjoyable and successful Anti Cancer Day.

    Together with the raffle, generous cash donations and donations from men playing that day, the event raised approximately $855, making it one of the lady golfers’ most successful fundraisers.

    A field of 24 played in the 18 hole stroke event, and they were joined by other ladies for afternoon tea following the game.

    Shelly Comerford won the Bowl and Division One with 72, from Margaret Knapp on 74.

    Division Two went to Jenny Foster on 77 from Sue Wilson on 78.

    Comerford added to her day winning the best score on the odd holes and best score for the last six holes.

    Knapp also did well in the Special prizes, with the closest putt and the overall putting.

    Nearest the pin on the third went to Nicki Cooper, Sue Parsons on the seventh and Sue Wilson on the 16th.

    “Thank you to all those ladies who donated goods for the hampers (we had enough items to have seven hampers as prizes) and to those who gave us cash donations,” said Marion Mitchell on behalf of the Mansfield Ladies Golf Committee.

    “A special thanks to Anne Watkins for organising the raffle and promoting the day.

    “We will be combining this money with the money we raise from our Bingo Night on November 2,” she added.

    In addition, the ladies are also running a three putt “competition”.

    For every three putts a player has in competition, a donation of 50 cents from that player goes into the Anti Cancer tin – it must be said that some of the more inaccurate putters are donating more than others.

    “All monies will be paid to the Cancer Council Victoria at the end of October, and this should be a very substantial donation to a cause close to everyone’s heart,” Ms Mitchell added.

    Tuesday’s nine hole stableford was once again won by Kay Rose, with Pam Abbott coming in second.

    Andrea Marsden had a day out in Saturday’s 18 hole, winning with 30 points, snaring a nearest the pin and the Pro Pin third hole.

    Sue Parsons came in second.
