• Ladies Golf Report – Week ending 12th June

  • MANSFIELD’S lady golfers flew the club’s colours at the North East Championships last week, and no one flew them higher than Shelley Comerford.

    There were 14 Mansfield ladies contesting the event, which was held at Mt Beauty Golf Club in very wet and heavy conditions.

    Reports were that the very steep fairways were quite slippery at times.

    On Day One in the foursomes, line balls were won by the pairs of Sue Parsons/Robyn Baker and Linda Terry/Shelly Comerford.

    In the first Championship round on Day Two, scratch winner in Division Two was Shelly Comerford and the Super Vets winner was Robyn Baker.

    Ann Blampied took out two nearest the pins.

    Comerford backed up on Day Three, winning the Division Two scratch event again, with nearest the pins going to Christine Fraser and Sam Bailey

    The Small Teams Winner was the team of Sue Parsons, Shelly Comerford and Sam Bailey.

    Comerford’s performance meant that she was the overall champioship winner in Division Two, with former Mansfield resident Christine Fraser runner up.

    In Division One, Sam Bailey was runner-up on handicap, a great effort in this difficult division.

    Congratulations to all the Mansfield ladies.

    The two day 36 hole Championship was won by Maddison Peters from Wodonga, a young up and coming player who is currently doing Year 10 and is only 15 years old.

    Keep an eye out for her in the future.

    Runner-up for the Championship was Judy Langford, also from Wodonga.

    Judy was in a serious car accident over a year ago and has made a remarkable recovery to be back on the golf course doing what she does so well.

    Back on the home course, there was very little action due to the nasty weather and the absence of so many at the championships.

    Wednesday’s stableford event was won by Nikki Coffey, with Nicki Cooper taking nearest the pin on the seventh hole.

    Thursday’s nine hole was won by Pam Abbott.

    Saturday’s stroke round was won by Nancy Stephens, and the putting went to Millie Cumming.
