At the Mount Gambier Golf Club last Wednesday, 30 dedicated ladies competed in a Par Round, generously sponsored by Betty McKechnie and Lorraine Stratford, contested in very windy and wet conditions.
However, the heavy conditions did not deter Karen Forster, who played one below her handicap, recording 1 up to win the day by 2 shots. Karen had a wonderful Back 9, recording 7 wins, 5 of which were done consecutively.
Winning a Count-Back on 1 down Diann Norman took out second place. Di played consistent golf and her Back 9 of 1up secured her second placing.
Unlucky competitor to lose on the Count-Back was evergreen Jane Lamont, who had 2 down on the long Back 9.
Featuring in the Ball Run Down, subsequently collecting a ball were : Jill Johnson, Jeannette Braun, Heather Teakle, Denise Harvey, Anne Headlam and Mary Kentish.
The Speciality Events were won by the player of the day – Karen Forster who won the Pro-Shot (3 balls) and the new Kathy Ewer special prize. Karen also won the 2nd Shot on the 8th for A Grade. 2nd Shot on the 6th went to B Grade Jeannette Braun and C Grade stalwart Heather Chapman.
Next week’s competition will be the prestigious and long-running Ladies Veterans Day, played in age groups of 55-69 Veterans, 70+ Super Veterans, in the form of a Stroke Round.
