• Ladies Golf Report – Week Ending April 29th 2018

  • By Linda Terry

    Stunning weather and course conditions for Ladies Bowl brings on the smiles.

    With Mansfield turning on picture-perfect autumn weather, and the golf course in superb condition, there were smiles all round at the conclusion of the 2018 Ladies Bowl held on Friday. With 88 ladies attending, from 24 clubs from throughout the north-east and surrounding golf districts and as far afield as Howlong, Leongatha, and Riverview clubs, organisers were delighted with the attendance and the outcome of the day. None had wider smiles however, than the Riverview ladies, whose team took out the Bowl on a countback from Kew.

    It was their first ever Bowl win after many years of trying, so there were lots of photos and we suspect, a bit of champagne to be consumed when they arrived home! Adding to their celebrations, Riverview team member Julie Woolf also won the A grade division with 40 points. B Grade was won by Diane Symons from Rich River, C Grade by our own Louise Calvert-Jones and D Grade, Helen Tate of Wangaratta.

    Louise added to her winnings with a nearest the pin as well as the “Young Chics” competition. Other local ladies to feature, were Sam Bailey and Donna Sedgman also picking up nearest the pins, while Millie Cumming and Nicki Cooper featured in the Small Teams win. Ladies Captain Linda Terry was delighted with the success of the day and thanked the many ladies who help in so many ways to make the day run so smoothly. She also made special mention of long time major sponsor Anne Blampied from Mansfield Leading Appliances, for the wonderful support and prizes they contribute to the event each year. She also thanked other local businesses for their generous support, including Mt Terrible Wines, Rustic Hyde and Mansfield Coffee Merchant.

     

    Fairways and Greens

    With Anzac Day falling on a Wednesday this year, the ladies missed out on their main golf day for the week, but they were instead kept busy with preparations for their Annual Bowl held on Friday. On Thursday just 5 ladies had a hit with Donna Sedgman winning with a very nice 22 points. The KJ Evans foursomes were contested on Saturday and the pairing of Robyn Baker and Shelly Comerford were victorious in the 27 Scratch event, defeating Millie Cumming and Sheryl Sargent by just won shot. Coming from behind, Baker and Comerford stormed home with a lovely 41 for the final 9 holes to take the win. They also took out the nett competition.

    With our Bowl over, the ladies now have quite a few opportunities during May, to travel to other clubs for their respective Bowls, so we hope that we will have some successes at those to report in future editions.
