Janelle Carpenter – Kitchen to Table 10, Suzanne Scott – Yamba’s Fisho 12 and Di Sweetman – Yamba Pharmacy 17/2. Balls went to 80 c/b. The final round of the Championships will be played next Wednesday and should prove to be most exciting as each grade is being closely contested and the Club Championship itself having Jennifer Fagan and Jeannie Doolan hitting off with equal scores to date. The lovely weather continued through to Saturday when 8 ladies played a Single Stableford. Julie Dunn, visiting from Glen Innes was included in the field, but Mary Hogan was the day’s winner with 34 points. Kathy Parker has either had her free lesson from John or else has given herself a stern talking to because she was runner-up with 31 c/b and also winner of the NTP. Pauline McKinnon
