It was all but snowing this morning as 15 brave and hardy women took to the course for a single stableford competition. Sporting thermals, puffer vests, beanies and any other item of clothing required for warmth, it was obvious that it was going to be a little difficult to get the swing to work at the outset. With persistence and determination the group pushed on in the hope they there would be an opportunity to shed some clothing along the way.
As the morning progressed, the temperature rose a little and the brisk walk assisted with making it possible to peel away some outer layers and improve the action. The conditions ended up being very reasonable considering the cold as there was no breeze whipping around and the sun actually peeped through the clouds for a short while. Everyone was in a hurry to get through without getting wet so the pace of play was generally speedy and it was only the final couple of groups who were caught in the light showers.
Despite the continuing heaviness of the course, the competition for the top two places was fairly hot in each of the divisions.
Angela Boadle shined in Division 1 to clinch the honours with 32 points but Sue Beazley was hot on her heels but needed two more stableford points for it to go to a countback and she had to settle for the runner’s up spot with 30 points.
Val Wilson has been dominating the Division 2 competition over the last few weeks and there was no exception today. With two consecutive Monthly Medals to her credit, she put in another solid performance and came in the with the best score of the day of 34 points to claim top honours again. Patricia Austin had to be satisfied with the runner’s up position two weeks running . She was the next best in Division 2 recording 27 points.
Robyn Lenehan narrowly took out the Division 3 honours with 30 points to her credit and Di Pritchard was close behind with 29 points for the runner’s up prize.
