Boylan had a great 21 points on the front nine, including four three pointers.

Another relatively new face to the club Jess Parsons (29) came in second place with 33 points with five three pointers on her card.

Next week the grand finals will be played with the A and B Grades conducing a 36-hole Match play event.

Heavy, windy conditions met the 20 lady golfers at the Mount Gambier Golf Course last Saturday.

A two-person Aggregate Stableford was the event of the day and scoring was made difficult with a hard course set-up and windy conditions affecting players putting.

The combination pairing of Kerry Pedlar and Helen Gregory won the day with a combined score of 63 points.

Second place went to the pair of Denise Harvey and Karen Forster on 59 points and Marie Douglas and Di O’Donnell took out third place with 58 points.
