Yamba ladies 2BBB v Par finals

The Wednesday June 15 Single Stableford and final round of the 36-hole Eclectic competition had 48 ladies involved and conditions were the best we have had for many months.

It was great to welcome back Jenny Dewar, Phyllis Telfer, Irene Williams and Joy Williams who we haven’t seen in quite a while. Carrie Aitken also announced her return after two weeks away by playing a blistering round.


Div 1 winner – Fiona Smart (35pts) with Sue Scott following closely (34pts c/b).

Carrie Aitken (41pts) won Div 2 and Fay Gimenez (35pts c/b) was r/up. Terri Collingburn (34pts) and Carol MacPherson (33pts) were the best scorers in Div 3.

Our NTP sponsors and winners: Tech Lab 3rd – Carrie Aitken; Yamba Florist, Debbie May 3rd (2nd) – Jacky Penfold; Leonie May Millinery 9th (2nd) – Julie Campbell; Yamba Fair Butchery 10th – Phyllis Telfer; The Shoe Boutique 12th – Leigh Robertson; Clovelly Fashions, Maclean 17th – Margaret Solomon and The Wobbly Chook 17th (2nd) – Terri Collingburn.

Balls: to 33pts. Prue Leggoe returned after a long break and won the nine-hole competition in a field of eight (17pts) and, once again, Lyn Alford won the NTP.

The 2BBB v Par event was decided last Friday with Fiona Smart & Fay Gimenez playing against Gail Gore-Brown & Janette Blair in a hard-fought final.

Fiona and Fay won the match 4/3 after beginning the back nine. Congratulations to all four ladies but especially our winners.

With 38 players and only one grade in last Friday’s 4/6 Par competition Round 2 game. Nadene Carroll won again (+1) beating Joan Berry on countback.

Our NTP winners were: Flots and Jets 3rd – Sue Scott; Valley Finance 3rd (2nd) – Noni Rixon; Peter Campbell Physio 9th (2nd) – Carol MacPherson; Kitchen to Table 10th – NA; Amie Rose Beauty 12th – Jennifer Fagan; Nicholson’s Fine Foods 17th – NA and Yamba Pharmacy 17th (2nd) – Joan Berry.

Eleven ladies, including three promising young Grafton players and our very own Tana Lowe, played on Saturday morning in perfect conditions. Hollie Fuller (GA 2.0) scored 38pts to beat Nadene Carroll (37pts). Kylie Lowe won the NTP. Well done.

Due to this week’s CHS Golf Championships, there will be no competition held on Wednesday, but Friday’s Stableford round will go ahead. Please keep abreast of upcoming matches by checking the noticeboards in the Golfers’ lounge and ladies locker room and make the necessary entries through Margery.

Have a great week of golf.
