Latest Competition Winners
6th December Winners
Windy is not the word for it. Today’s Stableford event was played in strong winds with a few showers testing the will of our girls. Coming up trumps, in a rich vein of form with her 2nd win in a week in Div 2, was Sandy Dawson with 41 points; four clear of runner up Chris Bloem. In Div 1 Meg Wharley (37 points) sneaked home by one point from Bernie Fitzgerald, who has also been a regular in our winners enclosure recently. Well done to all who completed their rounds.
Mid-Week Christmas Break Up
Some trying conditions heat wise, did not put off our Ladies. More Ladies turned up to play in our traditional Mid Week Christmas Break Up than Men – our girls obviously enjoy a good celebration. Some cracking scores came in to pick up our special Christmas prizes. Taking home the lovely hamper in Division 1 was Carmen Carter with an excellent 40 points. Overshadowing that score with an incredible A grade score of 44 points in Division 2 was Marion May, I hope that hamper wasn’t too heavy for you Marion. Taking out the Runners Up prizes were, in Division 1, a new name to our winners circle Joy Faithfull with 39 points – when done Joy; and in Division 2 with 39 points was smiling Jan Johnson obviously relaxed and ready to play after a nice holiday. Our 3rd place recipients were, in Division 1 with 38 points, the lovely Wendy McNamara and in Division 2 with 36 points ‘Santa’s little helper’ Allison Jackson. Happy Christmas to all our mid week players.
Make A Wish Day
An extremely worthwhile cause, in support of the Make A Wish Charity day, saw a large turnout for our Stableford event in some perfect conditions. With some great prizes on offer the competition was fierce. Coming out top of the pile as overall winner with a score of 42 points, on countback, was Kaye Nicholls. Accompanying her in our Christmas photo was Lynda Stephens who picked up one of the runners up prizes with a score of 36 points (also on Countback). With Christmas approaching it does us no harm at all to remember those who are less fortunate than us and support these events to help those people.
Winners 22nd November
Ladies Playing Away
Only the brave turned out to play in the wet and windy conditions, so well done to those that finished their round. Winning her 2nd competition in 3 days, having cleaned up in the Vets, was Sandy Dawson with 38 points. Winner of D1 was Kerry Gallagher with 35 pts. Good effort, girls.
Congratulations to “our” Liz Hahn who travelled down to a difficult Maryborough course and came away with a victory in the WBVC Nett competition on Tuesday the 20th. You should make mince meat of our course Liz 🙂 Well done.
Medal Of Medals Final – Nov 3rd
If you’re left handed, can putt like a dream and have a beaming smile on your face all the time you can do anything. Our Division 1 daily winner and the Division 1 Medal Of Medals winner is the lovely Carolyn Mason with a Nett 68 – Go The Lefties 🙂 Carolyn pipped one of our top guns Kathy Nelson (Nett 69) by a single shot, Kathy obviously didn’t have a howler today. Our Division 2 daily winner with a great score of 69 Nett is one of the old guard, Marg Zande. Marg came in 2 shots ahead of runner up Margaret King. As Marg Zande hadn’t won a monthly medal throughout the year Margaret King took out the Division 2 Medal Of Medals. Well done girls.

All scores recorded between the 1st of January and the 30th of April have been taken into account. Surprisingly not one hole has kept it’s previous Stroke Index.
