July has been a choc-a-block month, beginning with the final of the 2B Knockout; and what a final it was, keenly played to the bitter end. Followed by a small group of supporters, the match went to the 19th hole, with Val Stanford & Marg Hockley the winners, over Lorraine George & Judy Andrews.
Next on the agenda was the July Club Medal, and congratulations go to the Division1 winner, Patsy Elliott who over the years has been no stranger to the winners dais. Mon Capitan came 2nd on a countback to Gayle Colley. Denise Manfredotti was an excited winner of the Division 2 medal, with 2nd and 3rd to Ann Kane and Yvonne Kirkin, paying us a visit in between her sojourns in the caravan around this vast country. Division 3 was won by Ann Crowe with her cart buddy, Joan Forwood close behind, and 3rd went to Carmel Brown.
The following Tuesday dawned with (thankfully) fine weather for our Day of Golf – the Bowl, Salver & Longmarkers Cup, sponsored this year by The House of Beauty @ Woy Woy. The Gross Winner of the Salver was Kim Burke from Magenta, this did not come as a great surprise as Kim plays off a handicap of 1, followed by another low marker, Yvonne Boardman (3) from Toukley. However, our girls shined in the Gross for Division 2, with Bev Moore taking home the Bowl, and Margie Murray close behind as the runner up. Everglades did not allow any other clubs to see the light of day in the top prizes for the Nett. Division 1 Nett was won by our favourite vegetarian, Helena Miksevicius, followed by Pat Clarke who donned the runners up hat. Jan Counsell was the winner of Division 2 Nett on a countback to Pat Myles – if only one extra putt had gone in the hole! The Longmarkers Cup is played by Division 3 in a stableford format, with Jan Johnson most thrilled to receive the Cup this year. Coral Walker received her prize for 2nd, with Marilyn Macalpine 3rd on a countback to Lois Elworthy.
Wendy White and Heather Burrett were at the top of the nett leaderboard for the CCWGA District Foursomes held at Everglades this year, with Kaye McKay and Julia Campbell 3rd on a countback. Excellent work!
Finally, finishing off an extremely busy month, we held Xmas in July Mufti Day, sponsored by our own Darren Chivas, thoroughly enjoying being up close and personal with our winners – especially Denise!. Fortunately it was a super day weather wise, so those of us who raided the dressing up box, were able to play golf without the cold seeping into our bones. More importantly, we played a 4 person team stableford won by the team of Denise Manfredotti, Bobbie Moran, Marie Gaven and Lyndall Hendry who all dressed up as…golfers. Val Stanford, Cathy Byrne, Marg Hockley and Meg Warr were runners up and dressed in…red.
A reminder for August – the CCWGA Charity Day @ Morisset on Monday 14th , and for all us chocoholics (and who isn’t), Death by Chocolate on the 17th.
And a loving shout out to our members who’s health at this time is not up to par.
