Lyn Rowland sneaks to take Yamba Wednesday single Stableford

A very chilly morning greeted the 67 ladies who played in last Wednesday’s single Stableford competition. Overcast skies and pre-play drizzle set the tone for a wintery Yamba day and led to a number of ladies choosing to opt out.

Div 1 player, Jo King, has played very consistent golf over recent weeks. She began her round last Wednesday with a birdie on the par 5 first hole and almost bookended her day with another birdie on the 18th. She was pipped at the post by winner, Lyn Rowland, who also played impressive golf. Both ladies came in with scores of 36pts c/b.

In Div 2, Gail Scobie took out the winner’s prize with 34pts c/b. Ann Schuhmacher was thrilled to win r/up, also with 34pts c/b.

The Div 3 winner was Dot Latham (36pts) with Jane Anderson r/up (35 pts).  Balls were awarded to 32pts.

Wednesday’s NTP were taken out by: Val Pate (Yamba Medical Centre 3rd hole); Ann Schuhmacher (Yamba Florist, Debbie May 2nd on 3rd hole); Carolyn Chester (Leonie May Millinery 2nd on 9th hole); Bev Eckhardt (Yamba Fair Butchery 10th hole); Carrie Aitken (Shoe Boutique and Clovelly Fashions 12th and 17th holes) and Noni Rixon (The Block 2nd on 17th hole). Many thanks are extended to our generous local sponsors who continue to support our ladies each week.

Wednesday’s nine-hole competition had 12 ladies involved and winner, Annie Green, was thrilled to take out the top honours with a score of 19pts.

The rest of the week’s events, including Friday’s Round 1 of the Ladies’ Championship, were either delayed or cancelled because of the rainy conditions. Unfortunately, the weather Gods did not look favourably upon us with torrential rain delaying play until this week. Ladies are advised to check on the draw as there have been some changes.

Saturday’s play did not go ahead due to the course being closed.

We are certainly hoping for kinder conditions this week so we can all get back on the course. Good luck to all ladies who are participating in the championship rounds.

Happy golfing!
