A good week for golfing ladies
FORMATS other than stableford have proved popular this week, with a 4BBB event on Wednesday and a stroke round on Saturday for the monthly medal.
Winners in Wednesday’s round was the team of Sue Parsons and Glenis Skinner, who came in with an excellent 40 points.
Runners up were Gayle Wells and Shirley Nolan with 39, followed by the teams of Marion Mitchell/ Sheryl Sargent, Millie Cumming/ Nikki Coffey and Shelly Comerford/ Marion Sargeant, all on 36.
Thursday’s nine hole event went to Anne Watkins with 18 points.
Saturday’s 18 hole stroke round was for the September Monthly Medal, sponsored by Davon’s Hair Room.
As always, the club is grateful to the local businesses and individuals who sponsor events such as monthly medals, special days and raffles - their generosity is an integral part of the success of these events.
Saturday’s medal went to Marion Mitchell, who coped with the windy conditions well to come in with a score of 75 nett to win her first ever medal - congratulations Marion.
Runner up was Gayle Wells with 76 nett.
Donna Sedgman took the nearest the pin on the 16th and Gayle Wells won the overall putting on the day.
Line balls went to Shelly Comerford (78), Donna Sedgman and Marion Foster (79), and Sue Parsons (80).
Next Saturday is AFL grand final day, with a two person Ambrose event being staged - before the footy, of course.
There will be a shotgun start at 8am, so golfers will be back in the clubhouse in good time to watch the Big Dance.
An event to note is the ‘Golf Victoria Play Nine’, which may appeal particularly to our nine hole players.
Qualifying will be at Wangaratta Golf Club on October 16, start time 10am.
The final offers the mouth-watering prospect of a playoff between the two best men and the two best women at the Emirates Australian Open, an opportunity not to be missed.
Make a note in your diaries for the Anti-Cancer Bingo night on Monday, October 2.
Money made will be added to our ever increasing monies from the three putt 50 cent penalty “competition”.
The more ladies that attend the Bingo and buy the game books, means the more money we raise for Anti-Cancer.
Bingo is Monday, October 2, eyes down at 8pm.
EASY: Donna Sedgman makes light work of escaping the bunker on the ninth hole in the 4BBB last Wednesday.
