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.
