Ladies golf opening day held last Wednesday
IT was another busy week for the golfing girls, with their first pennant round last Tuesday, opening day on Wednesday and a tournament in Seymour on Thursday.
The pennant season opened at Wodonga for Mansfield’s division one team, where they took on the home team.
The girls narrowly missed a win, going down three games to two.
Division three travelled to the Commercial Club Albury to play Benalla and again, went down three games to two.
Division two were at home to Corowa and used the home ground advantage well, winning four games to one.
Next week, division one is at home to Thurgoona, division two travels to Corowa to take on Yarrawonga and division three will travel to the beautiful Myrtleford course where Yarrawonga awaits them.
Good luck to all the girls, as pennant games are very competitive and involve early starts and long days to cover the distances involved.
Opening day on Wednesday saw a good field compete in a 14 hole Canadian Foursomes competition.
As this style of play involves partners taking alternate hits with the best placed ball, scores can be very low, as indeed they were for the winners.
The game was followed by a luncheon where all players were able to get together and catch up before the serious winter competition gets under way.
On Thursday, three Mansfield ladies ventured to Seymour to play in that club’s bowl event - the trip made the girls appreciate how lucky we are with our lush greens and fairways, as in their words, Seymour was “as dry as a chip”.
The players, Lesley Anderson, Millie Cumming and Meg Broomfield did not come home with the bowl, but Broomfield won C grade i n t he singles competition. Well done Meg. There was a good field for the stableford round on Saturday, with 18 golfers playing in two divisions.
Division one went to Cumming with 34 points, on a countback from Virginia Bailey.
Alison MacKenzie carried on her fine form from opening day, taking out division two with 37 from Marion Sargeant on 31.
Robyn Baker was nearest the pin on the third hole with Andrea Marsden taking out the 16th.
Line balls went t o Patsy Smiles, Sue Parsons, Andrea Marsden, Shelley Comerford and Robyn Baker.
