• Ladies Golf Report – Week ending 15th October

  • Mansfield lady golfers have been performing above and beyond once again, both on and off the course.

    As a result of their anti cancer fundraising efforts, they have sent off a cheque to the Cancer Council for an amazing $2018.00.

    The money came from three very succerssful fundraisers:

    -The Anti-Cancer Bowl raised $954.50

    -The Bingo night raised $694.25

    -The three putt 50 cent penalty raised $369.25 – this will be ongoing, so the ladies can expect to keep raising money unless they all improve their putting.

     

    “We are only a small playing group but we have many non-playing lady members who contribute to these efforts as well,” said Ladies’ President Glenis Skinner.

    “A big thank you to all ladies who gave their support to these fundraisers.”

     

    The individual high achiever was Sue Parsons, who won A Grade at the Mornington Peninsular Classic, played over four rounds at four challenging courses, Rosebud, The Dunes, Moonah Links and Eagle Ridge.

    Congratulations, Sue, on a fantastic effort.

     

    Last Tuesday’s Daisy Day was well attended and thoroughly enjoyed by golfers and their friends.

    Held to honour the memory of past member Daisy Murphy, the nine hole event was won by Millie Cumming (Div 1) and Glenis Skinner (Div 2).

    Runners up were Sam Bailey (Div 1) and Louise Calvert-Jones (Div 2).

    Cumming took nearest the pin on the third, Lyn Holland (as usual) the seventh and Sue Parsons the ninth.

    Wednesday was the first round of the Club Championships.

    Nett winners on the day in Div One were Sheryl Sargent (73) on a countback from Anne Blampied and Linda Terry (68) from Sam Bailey (70) in Div Two.

    Gross result winners were Linda Terry, Sue Parsons and Sam Bailey, all on 89 from Robyn Baker on 90.

    The second and third rounds will be played over the next two weeks.

    On Saturday, some of the ladies also played in the Gentsomes, either in mixed teams or all women teams.

    This is a great opportunity for the men and women golfers to get together for some competition and socialising after play.

    Hopefully there will be more events like this in the future.
