The last day of summer provided very warm conditions for the women’s competition with not a hint of the emergent autumn season evident. It also appeared that the going was tough and this was reflected in the low scoring results of the day. One couldn’t complain of the condition of the course which, as always was presented in immaculate condition. We thank Course Superintendent, Louis and his hardworking off siders, Matt and Alex for the diligence with which they apply to their work.
Thirty five entrants in the 18 hole event and six players in the 9 hole competition battled through the morning as the temperature escalated and frustrations soared as the hopes of scoring well dwindled. Attaining a result over 20 stableford points became the target.
The best score of the day was 32 points and Cathy Ison proved to be the champion in Division 1 with a surprised Sue Hunter taking out second spot with 29 points on a count back. The Division 2 contingent was headed up by Jeanette Bright who came in with an honest 31 points, closely followed by Margaret Jennings with 30 points.
Di Pritchard continued in her winning streak to score the much coveted 32 points in third division and Anne Newton scraped in to second place with 29 points on a count back.
It was great to see the ladies back for their second go at competition in the 9 hole event. Undaunted by the trials and tribulations of their first plunge into competition last week, they set out again with determination to conquer this challenging and frustrating game. Lida Davis, who had to be persuaded last week to make a comeback, was well rewarded for her efforts when she managed to win the competition. Jenny Gumbly was presented with the Encouragement award.
