Grafton women’s golf

Another dry week for our golfers who teed up last Wednesday for the Gwen Gadd Memorial 18 hole Stableford event. The Gadd family very generously donate the overall trophy for the day. This day also incorporates our Friendship Day where the retired golfers are invited back to enjoy a cuppa with us. Unfortunately there were only a small number of those golfers able to come to the afternoon. The winner of our Gwen Gadd Memorial Day was Margaret Hall with a fine score of 41 points. Sharyn O’Grady took out Div 1 with 37, Div 2 winner was Soo McPherson 39 and Div 3 went to Liz Smith. The Allura Derma Skin Care Clinic best score for the month of August went to Margaret Hall 41pts, as well as the Stephen Donnelly Financial Services Aggregate with 75 points. Well done Margaret. Friday saw the Pro-Am being held so no golf as such for the Friday players. There were two lady golf Professionals, Reanna and Molly who played in the event and it was very pleasing to watch how they hit the golf ball, very different from us amateurs. Both enjoyed our course, being the first time they have been to Grafton, and thought our Greens were the best they have played on throughout the Pro-Am circuit they are playing. Saturday was also a day the Saturday players had off as the Texas Scramble was held and the women are invited to join in the competition. This day was also a day to raise funds for drought relief. There is a raffle being held which will be drawn next Friday when the Club will tally all and these funds and hand over. Today is our Annual WGNSW4BBB v’s Par Classic event. The event is played at Club level the winners to progress to the District playoff and if they happen to be a winner they get to play at Bonville in the State final. Good luck to all. Trophies on the day are provided by Jen Townsend, Cheryl Shanley & Denise Llewellyn for the overall winners with runners-up receiving a trophy donated by Bev Snowdon and Heather Robinson and we thank them for their support. With the little rain we have had the course should be playing a little softer on the fairways, but as always we need a lot more to see the grass greener.
