Ladies not put off by weather gods

Mansfield Courier - - Courier Sport - By LINDA TERRY

OUR course has been in such mag­nif­i­cent con­di­tion over spring, but we were once again at the mercy of the weather gods when the storm last Thurs­day ripped through the course, tak­ing down many trees and leav­ing a wake of de­bris be­hind.

A huge thanks to Cook­sey and his team, plus vol­un­teers (es­pe­cially Ge­off Brown) who were out early the next day clear­ing our path be­fore ladies’ sum­mer pen­nant.

A few less trees to dodge un­til some re­plant­ing is able to be done, but oth­er­wise the course is back to its beau­ti­ful self. Well done ev­ery­one. Tues­day’s nine-hole Par event was won by Anne Watkins with a nice -1.

On Wed­nes­day 19 play­ers took to the course for a stroke round.

Win­ner of the day was Linda Brook with a fan­tas­tic 69 – Linda con­tin­ues to do se­ri­ous dam­age to her hand­i­cap and is still only in her se­cond year of golf­ing.

Oth­ers to shine were run­nerup Wendy Hunt with a lovely 71 and line balls to Nicki Cooper 72, Sam Bai­ley 73 and Gayle Wells, Les­ley An­der­son, Shirley Nolan and Linda Terry all on 74.

Near­est the pins were shared around, go­ing to Lyn Hol­land on the third, Sam Bai­ley ninth and Shirley Nolan 16th.

Lyn also was the near­est third shot on the 18th, Sam won the chip­ping con­test and Nicki Cooper took out the putting with 26 putts.

Wed­nes­day was also the semi-fi­nals of our Premier League, but sadly a cou­ple of teams were let down by noshows of some play­ers and the wins went to Squirters and Hit and Miss.

Th­ese two teams will play off for the fi­nal next week. Good luck girls. On Thurs­day, nine brave souls ven­tured out in the heat and wind with Donna Sedg­man scor­ing a win with a lovely 22 points, with Sam Bai­ley run­ner up on 19 points.

Our sum­mer 4BBB pen­nant team played at home on Fri­day against Myrtle­ford, with the over­all re­sult a draw with one loss, one win and a draw be­tween the three teams.

Next week’s round is again at home against Ju­bilee.

On Satur­day, seven girls took to the course and Sue Par­sons shone with 35 points to win, with Donna Sedg­man top­ping off her nice week with 34 to take the run­ner-up prize.
