A good week for golf­ing ladies

Mansfield Courier - - SPORT - FAIR­WAYS AND GREENS By WENDY HUNT

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.
