Thurs­day play­ers will be com­pet­ing in a sin­gle stroke event in two di­vi­sions over 18-holes as well as the nor­mal 9-hole event.

Tee times are avail­able to suit in­di­vid­ual play­ers from 6.30am but play­ers must reg­is­ter with the pro shop to en­sure con­ti­nu­ity of play.


Windy con­di­tions greeted 19 ladies at their par event last Wed­nes­day.

How­ever, this was not a de­ter­rent for Lisa Ro­gatski and Ti­ina Rand­mae who played ex­tremely well.

Both ladies came in with the same score.

A count back re­vealed Ro­gatski was the win­ner with Rand­mae tak­ing out sec­ond place.

Mandy Pat­ter­son placed third with Ber­nice Petersen, Jenny Houn­sell and Mar­lene Gray com­plet­ing the run­down.

Ber­nice and Beryl Miller played a nice chip in each on hole five and hole 18, re­spec­tively.

Near­est-the-pin win­ners were Mandy Pat­ter­son on hole five, Reh Hull on hole 9 and Lyn Muller on hole 13.

The was a good turnout for the 4BBB event which was played yes­ter­day (Wed­nes­day, March 19).

The last game for March will be a stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion.

All golfers please note that the Glen­den Women’s Open has been can­celled.
