Early birds beat the heat in ladies golf

Mansfield Courier - - SPORT - By LYN FOOTS

WOW - how hot is the weather, but still the girls of the Mans­field Golf Club get out and play their golf.

Start­ing the week was Tues­day’s three club event which was won by Irene Pfluger (40) with 15pts from Anne Watkins 13pts.

Wed­nes­day was a Par round with the girls tee­ing off very early to beat the heat, and it was great to see a good num­ber of play­ers hit­ting, con­sid­er­ing what they played.

The win­ner on the day was Gle­nis Skin­ner ( 42) with a square, r un­ner- up was Sam Bai­ley (24) with -1, and lineballs went t o Lyn Poul­son, Marg Franke-Wil­liams, Irene Pfluger and Patsy Smiles all on -2 and Gayle Wells -3.

Near­est the Pin third were Jac­qui Smith­wick and the 16th An­drea Mars­den.

On a more se­ri­ous note we all wish Linda Terry a speedy re­cov­ery af­ter be­ing hit be­tween the eyes with a golf ball on the day.

Af­ter a few stitches and a bit of rest I’m sure it won’t be long be­fore she is back to have an­other go.

Thurs­day’s Ge­orge Walker was won by Shirley Nolan with a great score of 19pts, while two lineballs went to Sue Par­sons with 15pts and Les­ley An­der­son with 14pts on count­back.

Satur­day was t he Mil­lott Con­crete Cut­ting Am­brose with a small field turn­ing up to an ear­lier start on such a hot day.

The win­ners of the day were the all girl team of Sue Par­sons, Lor­raine Cullen and Janette Shut­tle­worth.

Thanks must go to the Mil­lott fam­ily for their gen­er­ous spon­sor­ship of this event.

There was also four play­ers in a sep­a­rate sta­ble­ford round with Sam Bai­ley (24) win­ning with 36pts from Les­lie An­der­son with 31pts.

Wed­nes­day will be a sta­ble­ford round with a shot­gun start, and it was to be 8.30am for 9am but I think we will start at 8am.

Satur­day is a stroke round, and don’t for­get to start think­ing about a team for the an­nual hos­pi­tal fundraiser on Fe­bru­ary 23, 10am shot­gun start with fan­tas­tic prizes to be won, in­clud­ing two cars for holes in one on the ninth and the 16th.

All pro­ceeds to the Mans­field District Hos­pi­tal so come along and have a great day.
