Maclean Ladies Golf

It has been a busy two weeks for Maclean Lady Golfers. Twelve ladies travelled to the three day Northern Rivers Tournament at Ocean Shores.  Kim Wiblen played well both days and won a major nett prize with Sheree, Helen, Pat, Nancy, Chris F and Henny all playing well on the first day. Prizes went to Sheree, Pat, Henny and Chris. We had a great day time away and congratulate Jacki Brattti from Casino who was 2017 Champion.

At Maclean we held the Vets ‘Week of Golf’ which was a great success. We shared our Wednesday with the men and our small field had a great day.

On Tuesday 26th we hosted the annual Gimmy Shield in a friendship day with the ladies from the four clubs in the Valley and it was a great day and well supported by every club.  The winners on the day were Anne Groom from Yamba and Elena Roylance. Thanks to everyone who came and made it such a great day.

Last Wednesday we played the first qualifying round of the handicap championship and the star of the day was Pauline Ryan winning Div 1 with the runner up Sheree Forsythe in Div 2 Hennie Taranto was the winner with Sandra Youlten the runner up.  Best gross went to Sheree in Div 1 and Div 2 Hennie.

NTP’s: Div 1 – Kate Hemmy; Div 2 – Hennie Taranto. Overall – 11th Monica Crittenden; 7th Pat Harris. Balls went to H. Granny, K. Wiblen, C. Forrester C Picton, N. Phillips, D. Moore, and S. Fong Kee.

Thanks go to our sponsor Chris Picton who’s unique and beautifully presented prizes were very much appreciated by the winners.

This week we will play the second round of the qualifying for the championship and our sponsor is East Coast Restoration.
