Bargara Golf Club boasts a vibrant and active Ladies membership with a current membership of 150+ and growing constantly. Our annual Bargara Ladies Classic is one of the most popular golfing events in Queensland attracting 250+ players from all over Queensland and Australia. Our ladies have regular weekly competitions on Thursdays and Saturdays and also run a Bargara Belles group who play 9 holes on a Monday morning for learners and players new to the game.
The Foursomes Championships, a game that tests friendships, marriages and more importantly our ability to play shots from places on the course we have never been to before. There was even reports of a double air shot by one poor pairing. Some champagne will be drunk in the Marxsen household tonight after Raelee Marxsen and Joanie Milton claimed the Gross Championship by 8 shots from runners up Kasee Marxsen and Michelle Marsden. In the Nett the mother and daughter pairing of Janet and Jackie Beer (106.5) held off runners up new Captain Marg Taylor and smiling Wendy Sturwohld (who never forgets to put her lippy on for photos) to win the Nett Championship by less than 3 shots. Please don’t be too concerned about the photographs, our Ladies are not being attacked by a plant but our photographer had just been watching Day Of The Triffids 🙂 Well done to all who completed the 27 holes and were still on speaking terms with their partners.
Committee News (June 2019)
(Updated 10th June)
Following on from the recent unfortunate resignation of our Captain Kasee Marxsen, Marg Taylor will assume the Captaincy role through until the AGM, with Michelle Marsden appointed as Vice-Captain. The Ladies Committee are currently conducting a survey of all our female members, checking on the frequency of use of the Ladies’ webpage on the Club’s website. Committee member Christine Bloem commenced this survey today and will endeavour to capture as many members’ responses as possible. So, if you have any feedback regarding the Ladies webpage or want to participate in the survey please speak to Christine. The Ladies Match Committee is delighted to welcome Debra West and Colleen Atherton into our fold, replacing Jenny Turner who recently resigned for personal reasons, and Kasee. Colleen and Debra bring a wealth of experience, Debra having previously served as Ladies’ Captain a few years ago. Welcome Colleen and Debra.
June Monthly Medal (Saturday)
The threat of rain meant a few fair weather golfers decided not to play in Saturday’s Monthly Medal. However, it didnt prevent 28 stalwart golfers from competing. With the help of a birdie on the 13th Joanie Milton won the coveted shirt with a Nett 72 in Div 1, beating Robyn Robinson by 1 – I bet you’re rueing that 8 on the 12th Robyn!! In Div 2 Allison Jackson raced round as usual recording an excellent Nett 68 to win her 2nd shirt by 5 shots from Amanda Elder. Putting Queen for the month was Del Hartfiel with 25 putts. Photos are action shots because my wife forgot to take photos of the winners 🙂 Come back Chris, all is forgiven.
June Monthly Medal (Thursday)
Our 2 Monthly Medal winners are both continuing recent good form. In Division 1, after her B Grade Ladies Championship victory, Ros Savidge posted an excellent 65, including a birdie on the 14th, to win by 3 shots. In Division 2, Sunday’s Life Members winner, Julie Kourikoski smashed a Nett 69, with the help of a par on the 13th and despite a 9 on the 16th hole. Putting Queen for Thursday this month is Wendy Sturwohld with an impressively low 25 putts. Well done girls.
Ladies Championships 2019 Round 4
Well it is all over for another year and we have 3 new Club Champions to celebrate. In A Grade Isabella Artcheua won by a massive 25 shots from Michelle Marsden. In B Grade Ros Savidge came from nowhere to pass the round 3 leaders and win by 5 from Robyn Edgar, with overnight leader Carolyn suffering from nerves. In C Grade it was all wrapped up after three rounds really with Leone “The Bullet” Collins easing home by 22 shots from Lady Pen. The Nett results were not quite as straight forward, and after some scores being adjusted due to administrative issues, there had to be changes to the winners announced at the Presentation. A Grade Nett winner was last year’s club champion Joanie Milton on 298 pipping Julie Burton by 2. In B Grade Jill Serra sneaked home by the narrowest of margins to edge out Sallie Wake by 1, both coming from behind to pass the overnight leaders. In C Grade Shirley Leacy, playing her first championships won with 310 from another championship debutant Julie Kuorikoski. Congratulations to all the ladies who played out the 4 rounds, that in itself it a great achievement. I bet you all cant wait for next year !!!! The Gross and Nett results are available here.
Round 4 – The Stories Of The Day
If you get yourself in trouble by plugging in the face of a bunker then take a leaf out of Jill’s book and play a fantastic shot like this.
One of the shots of the day from Lady Pen. My money was on a duff into the bunker but you proved me wrong. I wont mention the 3-putt from 5 metres that followed 🙂
Here’s one for the record books, a photo of Isabella in the trees on the 13th hole!!! Perhaps she needs lessons from Leone “Bullet straight” Collins.
That is a beautiful swing Alison, if only we all had a brother-in-law who was a golf professional 🙂
Quick girls get a move on, we better run to the next tee before Pat sees us and nags us about slow play again.
Oh dear Margaret where did it all go wrong today? Well Carolyn, you’ve got to stop being such a nervous Nellie and look on the bright side.
No Marg is not trying to hide from the camera. She is playing a lovely bunker shot out of the trap on the 3rd hole. Our ladies really impressed out of the bunkers today.
A great chip over the bunker on the 8th hole Ros, that’s why you are B Grade Champ. An awful lot of players would have plonked that into the bunker.
Caught on camera, Julie’s only par of the day. A beautiful 10 metre tap-in par putt followed the tee shot and chip. Well done Julie.
Who said our girls do not know how to play bunker shots ? Julie shows the perfect splash shot to within a couple of metres of the flag on the 1st hole.
Your best drive of the day Sal and on the 1st too. It is a pity about the 9 shots it then took you to get in the hole. Still, it could only get better from there.
Oooops. I wish I could chip like Ros.
