  • Division Two set for Pennant finals

    MANSFIELD’S Division Two Pennant team has reached the finals, and will be playing against Yarrawonga at Bright on Tuesday.

    All three teams have once again put in a great effort for the pennant season.

    As always, they have had to contend with early starts and long drives, and unfair scratch rulings for Division One, but have shown amazing commitment, team spirit and good sportsmanship.

    Congratulations to all players across the three divisions.

    Final results after the completed rounds are:

    (L) Division One – Despite finishing with three wins and two losses, our Division One girls sadly missed making the finals, purely on games.

    This is an excellent result given our top two were repeatedly playing scratch against lower handicap players.

    (L) Division Two have made the finals in a close finish after the home and away rounds.

    Well done and good luck to all those Division Two girls.

    (L) Division Three 3 – with three wins and three losses, our Division Three girls finished mid field and can hold their heads up high for their efforts.

    Final Pennant round results were: –

    Division One 3.5 to 1.5 win over Myrtleford.

    Division Two 3.5 to 1.5 win over Commercial Albury.

    Division Three hosted at home.

    Tuesday’s nine hole stableford was won by Pam Abbott with 18 points.

    Wednesday’s 18 hole round was a par round and was won by Lesley Anderson with a very good +1 from Nicky Cooper on all square.

    Big hitting Cooper also took the nearest the pin third shot on the second hole.

    Gayle Wells was nearest the pin on the third hole, Lyn Poulson on the seventh and Marion Foster on the 16th.

    Best score holes 13 to 18 went to Lorraine Cullen.

    Thursday’s nine hole was stableford with a win to Marion Foster on 18 points from Anne Watkins on 16.

    In the rain, cold and wind on Saturday, Gayle Wells won the 18 hole stableford with 35 points, proving she likes a wet track.

    Daylight was second, 11 points behind.

    A message from Ladies Captain, Linda Terry:

    “Our annual Bowl is coming up on April 27 and we would love your support for this most important day in our golfing calendar.

    “As usual, we will be making up hampers of goodies as raffle prizes, so we need donations of packaged food, wine or other nice bits and pieces to go in them.

    “Foodstuffs must be well before their use-by date.

    “Ideally, things a bit ‘special’ which the winners might not have in their shopping trolley every day would be lovely.

    “We need cakes, slices desserts.

    “If you are able to make something, please add your name to the list in the locker room.

    ” We will have a trading table, so if you have any home made preserves, fruit, veges, books or other suitable goods please drop them off to the locker room any time.

    “Helpers on the day always appreciated, so if you can help out, let me know.

    “Lastly if you would like to play in the Bowl, we will be fielding one team – there is a sheet up on the noticeboard, so add your name, and we will draw three players to represent our club.

    “Many thanks in anticipation.”
