Close bat­tle for Medal of Medal­list

Mansfield Courier - - Sport - By LINDA TERRY

APOLO­GIES if you were look­ing for the ladies golf re­port last week – “Mur­phy” got in the way.

So here’s all the news of the last fort­night and it has been a fairly busy and fun time on the golf course.

Our an­nual Medal of Medal­list event had top billing in these weeks – con­tested be­tween all those ladies who have won Monthly Medals in the pre­vi­ous 12 months.

It was a close-run bat­tle, but Sue Par­sons was vic­to­ri­ous on the day with a lovely net 72.

Donna Sedg­man and Mil­lie Cum­ming both just missed out with net 73.

For all the many Monthly Medals that Sue has won, it hap­pens that this was her first Medal of Medal­list win so she was de­lighted to fi­nally claim one.

Other win­ners that day were Jenny Fos­ter win­ning Divi­sion 2 on a count­back from Mar­ion Mitchell, both with net 75.

Last Wed­nes­day was our Oc­to­ber Monthly Medal, spon­sored by Sanae’s Col­lec­tions.

Win­ner with net 72 was Lyn Poul­son.

Lyn also claimed the Divi­sion 2 prize.

Divi­sion 1 was won by Donna Sedg­man with net 73 and run­ner up Linda Terry net 76.

Divi­sion 2 run­ner up was Louise CalvertJon­es.

Line balls went to Sam Bai­ley, Robyn Baker and Shirley Nolan all on net 76, Gayle Wells 78, Norma Fri­day and Les­ley An­der­son both 79.

Near­est the pins went to Lor­raine Cullen on the third and 16th, Gayle Wells on the seventh, clos­est third shot on the 18th to Sam Bai­ley and the putting to Sue Wil­son.

Thurs­day’s nine-hole win­ner was Kay Rose with 14 points and on Mon­day, Mans­field hosted the monthly North East Vet­er­ans round.

Clean­ing up for the ladies was our own Robyn Baker with a fan­tas­tic 40 points.

With the home ground ad­van­tage, the next three places were also grabbed by Mans­field girls – sec­ond was Mar­ion Sargeant with 33, third was Mar­ion Mitchell with 31 on a count­back, and fourth place Linda Terry also with 31.

Not sur­pris­ingly with her great score, Robyn Baker also picked up the prize for the Hid­den Holes.

Away from home we also had some suc­cess with Linda Brook win­ning C Grade at the Marysville Tour­na­ment.

We wrapped up Oc­to­ber with our club pre­sen­ta­tion func­tion which im­me­di­ately fol­lowed the con­clu­sion of the men’s cham­pi­onships on the Sun­day af­ter­noon.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to men’s club cham­pion Mark Jones and of course to our ladies cham­pion, Marg Knapp.

WIN­NER: Club cap­tain Phil Con­way and ladies cap­tain Linda Terry present the Ladies Cham­pi­onship tro­phy to win­ner, Marg Knapp (cen­tre).
