• Ladies Golf Report week ending 24th Jan 2024

  • Autumn Golf a Winner

    What’s not to like about golfing in this glorious weather! Though it was a bit of a slow start to the golfing week with only 4 playing 9 holes on Tuesday, but it was a fabulous round yet again from Sharon Gysberts with 22 points to take the win!  But come Wednesday and it was a full field of 30 who headed out to enjoy the glorious morning – albieit, jumpers were needed at the start! The standout performers of the day were, in A Grade, Andrea Marsden 37 points, Kylie Egan 36 points and Sue Parsons 34 points. In B Grade it was Jackie Smithwick who led the way with 36 points from Sue Wilson 33 points and Jenny Koraus 32. Best of the rest were Linda Terry 32, Shelly Comerford 32, Linda Brook 32, Sheryl Sargent 31 and Robyn Baker 30. Nearest the pins were won by Sam Bailey, Suzanne Herbison, Margie Franke-Williams and Pauline Ahola.

    Div 2 Team for 2024. Linda Terry, Lyn Poulson, Linda Brook Shelly Comerford and Marg Knapp

    With so many ladies playing pennant across 3 Divisions on Friday’s, they generally are giving Thursday golf a miss so that they go off to pennant in great shape. That strategy indeed paid off for Div 2 this week, with the team coming home with a 3/2 win over Yarrawonga at Benalla. Div 3 pulled out all stops at Albury against tough competitors Thurgoona, to finish with some tight matches and a square result. Unfortunately, Div 4 went down 4/1 to Jubliee at Albury, but all hail to Marion Mitchell for her win, having only stepped off a plane a couple of days before and having traded in her skis for golf clubs!

    Saturday was monthly medal sponsored with thanks, by Mansfield Shoe Store. Sam Bailey had a riper of a day to win the medal with 67 points and will no doubt be happy to be the bride instead of the bridesmaid! Runner up was Lyn Poulson with 72 on a countback to Shelly Comerford. Nearest the pins went to Kylie Egan (twice) and Sue Parsons.

    Finally, our Sunday Pennant team were also victorious over Benalla at Yarrawonga with an excellent result of 4½ to ½. Great effort ladies!

    All the lady golfers would like to extend our sincere sympathy to Lesley Anderson and her family, on the passing of Graham and all our thoughts and love go out to you.
