All sys­tems go for ladies golf

Mansfield Courier - - SPORT -

LAST Wed­nes­day, the an­nual gen­eral meet­ing for Mans­field Ladies Golf was held.

As with most events in­volv­ing the lady golfers, this one was pre­ceded by a round of golf – any ex­cuse to get out on the course.

Over lunch, ladies’ cap­tain Linda Terry de­liv­ered her re­port, thank­ing her com­mit­tee for shar­ing the load and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.

She also thanked the club pro­fes­sion­als for their sup­port over the year, and the lady mem­bers in gen­eral ‘who bake, con­trib­ute raf­fle prizes, man desks, serve lunches, do crazy skits at cham­pi­onship din­ners and who all gen­er­ally make golf and our club a lot of fun’.

Ms Terry also com­mended the women who helped make the host­ing of the Vic­to­rian Spring Tour­na­ment a re­sound­ing suc­cess, and thanked the men from the club who had helped out with the event.

The ea­ger­ness of the women golfers to travel far and wide was also men­tioned in the re­port.

“For a club with our mem­ber­ship to be putting up three pen­nant teams each year is just amaz­ing,” Ms Terry said.

The list of achieve­ments for the year is im­pres­sive:

the club sent 16 ladies to the North East Cham­pi­onships in Corowa, with a num­ber of di­vi­sion wins over the two days;

the Mans­field Bowl event at­tracted a field of 97 play­ers, with the team from Bright tak­ing home the Bowl;

over the 12 month pe­riod, there have been 11 dif­fer­ent Monthly Medal win­ners who will be con­test­ing the Medal of Medals event this week;

at the Mazda 4BBB, three pairs of Mans­field ladies reached the fi­nals;

in June alone, the ladies rep­re­sented Mans­field in Co­bram, Wan­garatta, Strath­bo­gie, Be­nalla, Tarawingee and Mil­dura.

The ladies’ fi­nances are in good shape for the year, with a healthy profit avail­able for the start of the New Year.

With new mem­bers join­ing the club over the year, the fu­ture of women’s golf in Mans­field looks rosy.
