Yamba lady golfers await any changes

The number of ladies participating in our weekly competitions has been consistently high. Our course is looking fantastic and we are appreciative of all the work that goes into keeping it in such top condition. The volunteer help in continuing the pathways around the course is fabulous too.

Last Wednesday, we had 60 players. This is surely the largest number we have seen in a long time.

Ann Groom was a worthy winner in Division 1 with 37pts. Di Sigle, runner up, continued her positive results with a score of 34pts.

Carrie Aitken returned after a lengthy break and came in as winner of Division 2 (34pts) and Glen Czarnota followed closely with 33pts. The best scores of the day came from Division 3. Julie Vernol was our winner with a strong score of 37pts. Playing partner, Margery Allison, was the runner up and right on Julie’s heels with a score of 36pts c/b.

Balls were awarded to 32pts with 18 on the back 9.

With 13 ladies playing in the nine-hole competition, Sue Quilty took the honours with a very credible 18pts c/b. Congratulations to all our prize winners.

It was a perfect day for golf and, judging by some of the scores, it would have left many of our 53 ladies with a smile after last Friday’s completion.

Ann Groom continued her winning form with a healthy 37pts, and Jennifer Fagan was awarded runner up with a score of 35pts c/b. The competition in Division 2 was a close tussle between Lynne Donsworth and Lyn White. Lynne Donsworth was the eventual winner with 36pts c/b.

In Division 3, Jo Foley was our winner with a fantastic score of 41pts. Jen O’Neill was awarded runner up (37pts). Well done to our winners.

It was a beautiful morning for golf last Saturday as ten ladies hit off in the 18-hole Stableford competition.

Julie Campbell was winner with 33pts, and Gillian Holst was runner up with 31pts, surviving a four-way c/b from Mary Hogan, Jill Brown, and Leigh Robertson.

With restrictions gradually being lifted, we will all be awaiting advice from the club before undertaking any changes to the way we are playing. Many thanks need to be extended to all our lady members who have been complying with the recent changes that have been implemented over the past few weeks.
