• Ladies Golf Report week ending 9th Jun 2024

  • A Very Full Week of Golf

    Whilst some of our ladies have now headed north to the warmer weather, many Mansfield ladies still manage to not only play at home but travel away for competitions.

    The week started with 8 ladies representing Mansfield in the North East District Championships at Bright.  Monday was a Foursomes event.  Whilst no successes it was a chance to familiarise ourselves with the course for the next two days of Stroke competition.  Well done though to Susan Kinloch and Jenny Koraus who travelled up just for the day.

    Marion Sargeant well remembered the course by winning C Grade scratch competition with a great net 73.  Marg Franke-Williams earnt a line ball.

    At the official dinner on Tuesday night the NEDGA Pennant Players of the Year were announced.  Fantastic to hear that Linda Brook won Division 2 and Jackie Smithwick Division 4.  Congratulations ladies.

    After the final day on Wednesday Mansfield had another success with Marg Franke-Williams runner-up in the 36 hole scratch competition, just losing on a countback.  Well done Margie.

    Also a big congratulations to our own Linda Terry, NEDGA Women’s Golf Operations Coordinator, for organising the 3 day championships. So much work and organising.  It ran smoothly and was lots of fun.

    Back home on Tuesday Lorraine Wilson won with a lovely 19 points from Jeanette Hopgood 14 on a countback.

    Wednesday’s Stableford was won by Millie Cumming 34 points on a countback to Kylie Egan.  Both players are consistently bringing in good scores.  Sam Bailey was third with 33.  Line balls to Andrea Marsden and newcomer Kirstin Scudamore.  Sam also won two nearest the pins on 3rd and 16th with Millie Cumming on 18th.

    Friday, 6 ladies travelled to Tarrawingee for their Bowl.  No successes but a good day out.

    Only 8 ladies played Par on Saturday.  Visitors for the long weekend took away the money.  Rainer Paterson from National +2 and Ruth Tenace from Kew +1.  Tracy Gravenall, another consistent player, was 3rd on square on a countback from Kylie Egan. Nearest the pin on 18th was Ruth Tenace.

    Finally on a very sad note, our sincere condolences to Marg Gray and Sheryl Sargent and families on the passing of their husband and father Frank.  Our thoughts go out to you.
