Pinehurst event attracts pairs

Atotal of 30 ladies had the opportunity to participate in a Pinehurst competition last week at the Mount Gambier Golf Club.

The partnered event which is not played very often, saw 15 pairs compete for the winning prizes generously sponsored by playing member Lorraine Stratford.

Chilly and cloudy conditions had everyone protected from the elements and scoring was a challenge with the heavy fairways and slower greens.

Helen McIntyre continued her good form and combined well with Lois Harvey to win the day’s competition with a combined nett 77.

Lyn Hudson and golf club ladies president Mary Kentish were second best with a nett 78.

The ball rundown winning combinations were Faye Mainwaring and Di Norman 80, Jan Shanahan and Gloria Lennon 81, Denise Harvey and Kate McCormick 81 and Carol Davis and Janina Morrison 81 nett.

Denise Harvey had the closest shot on the eighth hole with the pin sitting behind the bunker to take home the pro shot prize.
