Jennifer Fagan tops Saturday’s Yamba lady bowls

The 2021 Championship Knockout will be decided between Kathy Parker and Gail Gore-Brown this Wednesday after the field.

Leigh Robertson and Jo Simmons fought hard, but Kathy and Gail were just too good in their respective semi-final matches. Best wishes to both Kathy and Gail for this week’s deciding game and congratulations from all of us for reaching the final.

Unfortunately, overnight rain on Tuesday and Thursday nights meant play did not go ahead on Wednesday and Friday last week. This meant the monthly medal and Canadian Foursomes rounds were disrupted.

However, Saturday’s play did go ahead for 11 participating players. There were wet and muddy patches everywhere, ensuring scores remained low but nobody was complaining with perfect, blue skies overhead. Jennifer Fagan played well and was the winner with 34 points and Gwynne Thomas was the runner up on 30pts. Jennifer also won the NTP.  

We have a busy few days coming up over the next week. On Friday, Carrie Aitken, Penny Cope, Di Sigle, Margaret Solomon and Leigh Robertson will travel to Casino to represent Yamba Ladies in the Five Person Interclub Team event. Good luck team!

This will be followed by the much-awaited VW Scramble to be held this on Sunday. The winning team will progress to play off at Kooindah Waters on May 12. All participants should have received an email notifying them of the date and details. The rescheduled GIMY Shield will then be held at Iluka on Monday April 19.

Both of this week’s formats will be single Stableford and with the fine weather forecast throughout the week we are hoping for no disruptions. With gardens in full bloom following the rain we are blessed to be on the course. To improve even the poorest of rounds, look at the bromeliads which are particularly beautiful near the 7th tee now.  

Happy golfing ladies.
