The heat was on at the Naracoorte Golf Course earlier this month when the final of the South East Women’s District Pennant final was held.
A total of 18 teams entered the competition across four divisions which began in March and was impacted by COVID-19 every week, which meant that most teams called on numerous reserve players to get through.
At Naracoorte the A Grade final was fought between Millicent and Kingston.
After a complete performance winning four of the five matches, Millicent took out the flag.
In possibly a first for the A Grade pennant, the Millicent team had the benefit of a mother and daughter combination in Kirsty Bailey and Alex Lambert.
They combined well with Mary Winser, Virginia DeDonatis and Sue Agnew also playing big roles.
In Division 1, Lucindale had the upper hand over Mount Gambier with three wins and a halved match with Megan Watson, Rachel Smith, Vicki Snodgrass, Jacqui Baker, Michelle Justin and Nicole Hocking the players behind it.
Division 2 had a tight contest with the Mount Gambier team of Mary Kentish, Vicki Clark, Chris Galpin, Janina Morrison and Kate McCormick claiming the flag over Penola after winning three of the five matches.
The final match of the day had Millicent and Lucindale Division 3 players on edge in the clubhouse as the matches stood at two all while the last pair was still battling it out.
Millicent came away with a hard fought win and much jubilation for some who experienced their first season of match play.
Tanya Payne, Sharne Peacock, Sue Ireland, Julie McKenzie and Karen Lock were the victorious players.
A highlight of the season was experienced by three women who played the perfect shot, achieving a hole in one during their match.
Suzi Watts from Beachport holed out on the fifth at Blue Lake, Elaine Morrow holed out on the seventh at Naracoorte and Felicity Miles holed out at Attamurra on the eighth.
It was a great way to end an exciting season.
