Ladies remember glory days

- Gus Underwood

It’s reflection time for former Valley View golfers Bess Wood and Doris Vick.

Now residents of Warramunda and in their 90s, Bess and Doris teamed with Eileen Sullivan in 1995 to claim one of the most prestigiou­s events on the Goulburn Valley ladies golf calendar, the Joyce Broadbent Perpetual Shield.

Eileen, who presents the popular weekly Looking Back column in this paper, remembers the day well.

‘‘We didn’t play together and at the end of our rounds they combined our scores,“Eileen said.

“Doris and Bess finished before me and knew they had a chance of winning the shield if I came in with a reasonable score. Fortunatel­y I did and we won the event.

“We were all pretty excited because it was the most prestigiou­s events of the year.”
