Women’s Golf Update – September 2017
First out of the blocks in August we played the Club Medal, and the prize winners on the day for division 1 were Ann Radford (70), Denise Dickson R/U (71), and for division 2, Debbie Neate with a great round of 65 and Pat Myles R/U (72). Joan Forwood played herself into the division 3 winners circle with 74 on a c/b to Ann Kendall R/U.
Vickie Gray said ‘cheerio’ to Everglades, embarking on a two year journey with Noel to discover the bits of Australia they haven’t yet seen.
Lorna Tracey, a member for 16 years became one of a number of our octogenarians this year and was presented with flowers and a card from the membership, and an 80th hat clip and card from the VWGA.
The CCWGA Charity Day was held at Morisset this year, playing a team event and individual Stableford. Although we were not number 1 on the podium, our team had a very credible third, and Judy Lawson, one of our newer members was very happy with 4th, on a course she hadn’t played before. The charity that was supported on the day was Camp Quality, and the presentation by their rep reinforced what fantastic work they do supporting families of kids with cancer.
Death by Chocolate sponsored by the ever affable Brian Reid of Coastal Funerals, was played as a single Par, plus the addition of a 2BBB in conjunction this year proved to be given the thumbs up.
Our own Mon Capitan won 1st div with +2 on a c/b to Pat Clarke, and Ann Meyn won 2nd div with a staggering +6. There was some suggestion she should be drug tested! Ann Kane followed on with a +3. Jan Johnson also with a +3 won on a c/b from Sandra Balneaves who appears to be going through a ‘purple patch’ at the moment.
A special mention this month for Sue Brook who obviously doesn’t like to rush things. After 9 ½ years as a golfing member, she has had a 2nd and a 1st in consecutive weeks. Just goes to show,
patience pays off in the end!
Entries are now open for the Foursomes on 28th September, to be played over 27 holes with a sausage sizzle after 18 and a cocktail party afterwards. Your cost is $20.
Just as a general note – husbands need not be heeded when attempting to give advice out on the golf course!
