Yamba ladies golf – 2BBB Matchplay winners

The big news from last week is the Jo Simmons/Sue Wilson win in the 2021 2BBB Matchplay after defeating Sam Brown/Fay Giminez. Well done to all four ladies. It was a hard-fought match, but Jo and Sue held their nerve to finally win on the 19th (1st) hole. Congratulations!

Last Wednesday’s field comprised 47 ladies including a very welcome visitor from Gunnedah, Judith Lee. It was great to see Joan Berry playing 18 holes and, as new member to Yamba ladies, she was presented with a welcome pack at presentation. 

We had three divisions and the results included some fabulous scores. Div 1 winner was Margaret Solomon (39pts) who beat Jeannie Doolan (37pts).

Gail Scobie (36pts) was the Div 2 winner while the r/up was Moira Morrow (35pts).

It was great to see Lesley Love (37pts) and Sandra Russo (34pts) come in as Div 3 winner and r/up.

Wednesday’s NTP went to: Yamba Medical Centre 3rd – Julie Grant; Yamba Florist, Debbie May 3rd (2nd) – Gail Scobie; Leonie May Millinery 9th (2nd) – Carrie Aitken; Yamba Fair Butchery 10th – Jane Bonner; The Shoe Boutique 12th – Jeanne Jensen; Clovelly Fashions, Maclean 17th – Gail Gore-Brown and The Wobbly Chook 17th (2nd) – Nadene Carroll. Balls were awarded to 32pts c/b.

There were 12 players in our Wednesday nine-hole competition. Nancy Prisk won with a great score of 17pts followed by Judy Turnbull (13pts).

Jacky Penfold was the NTP winner on the 9th.

Irene Williams won the lovely fruit and vegetable box giveaway donated by Spar while Jen O’Neill won the $10 Priceline giveaway card. Our beautiful weekly flower arrangement donated by Debbie May, Yamba Florist, was won by Nadene Carroll. Margery Allison was the lucky winner of a stunning bunch of native flowers which had been donated by Yamba Ladies Golf.

Possibly due to Friday’s cancelled round, a record number of 18 keen ladies played last Saturday morning in the single Stableford competition. All ladies had played on Saturdays before, so it was quite special to see so many on the one day. Winner, with a lovely 38 points, was Fay Gimenez and r/up on 34 points was Margaret Fishburn. NTP winner was Jane Bonner.

This week’s rounds will be a monthly medal and 2BBB Stableford.

 Congratulations to last week’s winners and happy golfing.
