• Ladies Golf Report week ending 23rd May 21

  • Mansfield Cleans up at Tri State Masters

    First up,  apologies to Wendy Hunt, as a gremlin got into the system last week and her win in D Grade of our Championship was missed in this report. We love having a strong representation of our higher handicap girls in our champs,  and the win is just as hotly contested as any other grade,  so well done Wendy.

    All this week’s action was away from home as quite a lot of our girls (and a few blokes) travelled to Mildura for the 54 hole Tri State Masters and the results were outstanding! Team Mansfield played some brilliant golf and by all accounts, the final presentation night was dominated by our players and their noisy supporters! Top of the list was Donna Sedgman who won the 54 hole A Grade handicap event as well as playing off in the top 4 for scratch honours. She found it an amazing experience despite not being able to move up the leaderboard further and says “I played the best round of golf I’ve ever played. I was extremely nervous but I’m so proud of myself for achieving what I’ve done” Also starring was Shelly Comerford who won the B Grade 54 hole handicap. Shirley Nolan won the Super Vets. Sheryl and Rod Sargent won the Ambrose event with an amazing 14 under the card! Huge congrats also go to Rod for winning the overall men’s scratch 54 holes.  Other prize winners were: Shelly Comerford, B Grade HC Day 1; Christine Fraser r/up B Grade day 1 and a great nearest the pin on Day 3; Robyn Baker, A Grade HC Day 3, Sue Parsons, B Grade R/up Day 3 and Linda Brook a NTP.  Great effort all round and there is bound to be still plenty of stories to tell when they are back home!

    The other news on the playing away theme was the Vets Interzone played at Shepparton on Monday.  This is a combined stableford event between the North East, Dalhousie and Goulburn Valley districts. This writer is pleased to report that the individual winner for North East district was one of only 2 ladies playing,  and that was Linda Terry with 34 points.  The winner of the overall trophy for the team event was Goulburn Valley.

    For those of us not in Mildura, the field of 17 played stableford on Wednesday and the winner was Millie Cumming with a lovely 38 points,  from Anne Tilbrook 37. Balls went by to Marion Mitchell,  Lesley Anderson,  Nicki Cooper, Patsy Smiles,  Jackie Smithwick and Sam Bailey. Millie Cumming also had the nearest the pin on the 3rd and Sam had the closest 3rd shot on the 18th.

    For the 9 hole comp on Tuesday,  it was great to see Robyn Bridgewater getting in another great round to win with 19 points. On Thursday,  Norma Friday won with 15 points.
