Women’s golf:

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport - — W.O.F.

The stroke event caused plenty of ex­cite­ment. Apart from play­ing the first round of the club cham­pi­onships, one of the play­ers scored a hole-in-one.

Heather Long took out her driver on the par 3 sixth hole, sur­pris­ing her play­ing part­ners on her club se­lec­tion.

Heather de­clared she was just hav­ing a fun day, and promptly hit her ball up on the green.

Play­ing part­ners saw it head to­wards the hole but the rise in the green did not al­low them to see where it had fin­ished, but they told Heather it could be in the hole, to which she replied, ‘‘No, it will have gone through.’’

Great ex­cite­ment en­sued when Heather dis­cov­ered her ball in the hole. Back at the club house mem­bers helped Heather cel­e­brate her first hole-in-one.

Liz Mulc­ahy won A-grade with 97-23-74 nett on count­back from Colleen John’s 95-21-74 nett. Karen Bal­lan­tyne made a wel­come re­turn to golf with a win in B-grade with 101-27-74 nett.

Run­ner-up in B-grade was Pat Serra with 110-35-75 nett.

Ball win­ners: Beryl Home, Joyce Baird, Lyn Flett and Judy Baker with 76 nett.

Near­est-the-pins: third Gallery Cafe´, Colleen Johns; sixth Tatura Hot Bread, Heather Long (hole-in-one); ninth Cafe´ Alofa, Joyce Baird; 14th Hill Top Golf Ball, Elaine Dunk.

Nine-hole com­pe­ti­tion: Win­ning the day was Roy­lyn Har­ris with 45 nett, run­nerup was He­len Wil­liams with 47 nett.

Golden Put­ter Com­pe­ti­tion: Phyl­lis Craw­ford re­tired from­golf some time ago, but some­times joins the cur­rent golfers for com­pany and chit-chat fol­low­ing golf. Phyl­lis was en­cour­aged to buy a stick for the chance to putt for the prize.

Phyl­lis won the chance to putt, and re­luc­tantly took her place on the green. Ex­hibit­ing her good putting style of old, Phyl­lis con­fi­dently rolled the per­fect putt into the hole to claim the prize, and was grate­ful for be­ing en­cour­aged to have a go.

Wed­nes­day’s event: 9.30 am for 10 am start. Stroke, sec­ond round Cham- pi­o­nships; Monthly Medal, spon­sored by Drum­mond Golf; first round Sil­ver Spoon.
