• Mansfield Golf Club Ladies Golf report for week ending 10th April 2016


    By Wendy Hunt.

    Last week was a good one for ladies pennant, with all three of the ladies teams posting wins.
    Playing at Corowa, Division One defeated Yarrawonga 3.5 games to 1.5.
    Division Two travelled to Albury for their matches against Wangaratta, winning 3-0, with one of Mansfield’s players winning in a walkover due to the non-appearance of her opponent.

    Division Three had the most convincing win, defeating Thurgoona at Wangaratta 4.5 to 0.5.

    Another group of travelling ladies ventured to Corowa last Friday for their Bowl event.

    Judy Campbell, Glenis Skinner, Marion Sargent and Marion Foster all played well, but only Skinner came home with a win, taking one of the Nearest the Pins.

    At home, Pam Abbott had sizzling wins in both the Tuesday and Thursday nine hole competitions.

    On Tuesday, she carded 22 stableford points for the nine holes, and followed that up in Thursday’s nine hole with a 21.

    Exciting wins, but she will feel the pain when her handicap drops.

    Runner up on Tuesday was Wendy Hunt with 19 points and Kay Rose took second on Thursday, also with 19.

    Wednesday’s 18 hole was contested by a good field of 21, with Division One going to Millie Cumming with 36 stableford points from Marg Franke-Williams on 35.

    Division Two was won by Dawn Breadon with 37 on a countback from Lorraine Cullen.

    There were four Hidden Holes divisions, providing more chances for a win.

    Handicap 0 to 19 was won by Millie Cumming, 20 to 28 by Lesley Anderson, 27 to 31 by Marion Foster and 32 to 42 by Nancy Stephens.

    Anderson also won Nearest the Pin on the 16th, the 18th hole shootout, as well as a line ball.

    Alison MacKenzie took Nearest the Pin on the 7th.

    Other line balls went to Sheryl Sargent (34), Meg Broomfield and Glenis Skinner (33), Andrea Marsden, Marion Foster and Sue Wilson (32).
