Hill Top sponsored the twoplayer Multiplier Stableford event of nine holes, which was played by a good field of ladies.
This event preceded the annual general meeting.
The Multiplier stableford game can be tricky for some; if your partner doesn’t score and you’ve parred the hole, the end result is no score, so a forgiving partner is essential to a happy day.
Liz Mulcahy and Lois Rogers combined well to win the day with 33 points. Joan Hill and Wilma Saunders followed closely behind with 31 points.
Balls down-the-line went to Gail Wootton/Sheryl Curran 30, Lyn Flett/Di Day 29, Josie De Ieso and Bev Roberts 28 points.
Lyn Flett won nearest-the-pin on the 14th hole, sponsored by One4One Cafe´.
The Annual General meeting began at 1 pm with a good attendance of ladies. All positions were declared vacant.
Francie Mark will continue her good work for another year as president, with Liz Mulcahy as vice-president.
Terri Wangeman continues as captain with Bev Roberts being welcomed as vice-captain.
Phyl Fiddes and Rita Fairchild were welcomed on to committee for the first time, joining Lyn Flett, Sue Turnbull and Judy Baker.
Wilma Saunders and Deb Reilly both retired from committee and were presented with bouquets of flowers for their valued service over many years.
On declaring the meeting closed, afternoon tea of passionfruit iced sponge whipped up by president Francie and other goodies supplied by generous members was enjoyed by everyone.
Summer 4BBB pennant
Hill Top drew their match last week with Numurkah at Mooroopna and has the bye this week. Shepparton is Hill Top’s closest rival on points and they will play each other in the final match at Valley View the following week, putting Hill Top in a must-win situation, that is if Shepparton had a win yesterday.
The final was played last Friday in perfect weather between Joan Hill and Liz Mulcahy.
Liz finished the front nine two up and continued to play steady golf for the remaining holes, finishing on the 14th hole with a par, after rolling in what looked a difficult putt.
players adjourned to the club house for refreshments.
