Ross wins Anti Can­cer Bowl event


THE cul­mi­na­tion of the ladies’ anti can­cer fundrais­ing drive, with the Anti Can­cer Bowl event was held last Wed­nes­day.

The win­ner on the day and the proud re­cip­i­ent of the very han­some tro­phy was Don­nalee Ross, with a very good stroke score of 71 nett.

Run­ner up was An­drea Mars­den with 75 and line balls went to Lyn Poulson, Shel­ley Comer­ford and Mil­lie Cum­ming, all on 77.

An­drea also took out the near­est the pin on the third hole, Mil­lie took the sev­enth, Shel­ley the 12th and Linda Terry the 16th.

An­drea also took out the putting and the Hid­den Holes to com­plete a very good day out.

Spe­cial putting went to Mar­ion Foster and Wendy Hunt won the 18th hole shootout.

In all, the ladies have raised around $800 to­wards can­cer re­search, a very good ef­fort con­sid­er­ing the rel­a­tively small mem­ber­ship.

Tues­day saw eight play­ers out for a Par round, with Julie Jes­sop win­ning on mi­nus four on a count­back from Don­nalee Ross (ob­vi­ously get­ting her eye in for Wed­nes­day).

Line balls went to Mil­lie Cum­ming and Gle­nis Skin­ner, both with mi­nus six.

While the scor­ing at the mo­ment is not spec­tac­u­lar, the con­di­tions must be taken into ac­count, and those play­ers who are get­ting around be­low or close to their hand­i­cap are do­ing very well in­deed.

Cold and windy days do not help a golfer’s score

, and the re­cent heavy rain (though very welcome) has taken the run out of the course.

The weather at the week­end was so un­ap­peal­ing that there was no ladies’ com­pe­ti­tion on Satur­day, and no play­ers for the mixed nine hole on Sun­day.

We can only hope it starts to im­prove soon.
