Numbers up and down for ladies golf

The local Ladies Golf competition had their best numbers for the week last Wednesday with 12 players contesting the two person Ambrose game.

Golfers played three times over the front nine holes of the course due to the wet conditions.

Marlene Wynd and Narelle Kriz won the day with a score of 77 net.

Next was the pairing of Ann Dunn and Sue Phillips claiming second spot on a countback from Pat Polack and Fay Hardwick.

Both teams finished with scores of 81 net.

The Nearest the Pin prize on the 8th hole went to Kriz who also picked up the ‘Nearest the Pin in Two shots’ prize on the 9th hole.

Only four contenders were on hand for Saturday’s Par round with Glenis Prisk winning the day with a score of -3 followed by Tina Gordon on -4. Serena Fraser picked up the Nearest the Pin prize on the 3rd hole and Gordon was closest on the 15th.

The 11 Cobar lady golfers who ventured to Warren for the weekend unfortunately didn’t bring the Rose Bowl trophy back home with them but, by all accounts, they sure revved up the party on the Saturday night.

Brenda Fugar teamed up with Sue Bourke from Warren to be the handicap runners-up in the American Foursomes game on Saturday and Pat Polack and Narelle Kriz won a Nearest the Pin prize. On Sunday Karen Manns had the Longest Drive in B Grade and Fay Hardwick won the A Grade Nearest the Pin competition.

The 96 players taking part in the Rose Bowl competition found the course pretty tough with ice cold conditions resulting in only three players coming home with scores in the 80’s off the stick.

There were not enough players for Sunday’s scheduled game to go ahead on the home course.

Numbers however should be up this week  with a Stroke game set down for today and the Annual Bannister Day Stableford is scheduled for Saturday.

The Mixed Foursomes Club Championships will be played over 27 holes on Sunday.—T’d Off
