Yamba ladies compete in Byron Two Day Tournament

Last Wednesday had 57 participants in its 2BBB Multiplier event, a format that relies on players combining well and avoiding ‘wipes’.  There were lots of smiling faces and friendships seemed to be intact after the round so it mustn’t have been too traumatic for the teams.


Div 1 winners were Jennifer Fagan/Robyn Brockwell (63) who came in ahead of runners up, Suzanne Scott/Leigh Robertson (58).

In Div 2, the winners were Lee Daley/Phyllis Telfer who had the day’s highest score (64) and runners up were Jenny Dewar/Jean Whitby (53).

Keeping it in the family, Dulcie Nurse/Joan Berry (63) won Div 3, beating Noni Rixon/Terri Collingburn (57).

NTP winners: Yamba Medical Centre 3rd – Mary Hogan; Yamba Florist, Debbie May 3rd (2nd) – Dulcie Nurse; Leonie May Millinery 9th (2nd) -Carrie Aitken; Yamba Fair Butchery 10th – Joan Berry; The Shoe Boutique 12th – Suzanne Scott; Clovelly Fashions, Maclean 12th (2nd) – Lyn Rowland and The Wobbly Chook 17th (2nd) – Noni Rixon. Balls were awarded to 55.

Our nine-hole competition had 11 players for their single Stableford format. Congratulations to Colleen Bamback who played a fabulous round to win (18pts) ahead of Susan Boyce (17pts). Colleen also won the 3rd NTP. Well done Colleen.

Due to the 2021 Yamba Open, no competitions were held on Friday or Saturday; however, Yamba ladies’ best performing representatives in the Yamba Open Ambrose on the Friday, were Darrie Nightingale and Gail Gore-Brown who scored 76 off the stick, 69 nett. 

We also had a contingent of ladies who travelled to Byron Bay for their Two Day Tournament. Our best performer was Jen O’Neill who was Thursday’s Div 3 r/up (37pts c/b).  In Friday’s 4BBB event, Julie Campbell and Gillian Holst were the best of Yamba’s ladies (42pts c/b), winning a ball for their efforts. Janelle Carpenter won the Friday’s NTP in Div 1. 

With the Yamba Ladies AGM being held this Wednesday at 9.30am, no competition is taking place. Our next scheduled event is this Friday’s American Foursomes. 

Happy golfing ladies.
