The women golfers annual Pink Day on Sunday, raising funds for breast cancer, had all players dressed for the day looking ‘pretty in pink’.
The winners were Daphne Cross, Chrissy Gilligan and Fay Hardwick with a team score of 35 points. The individual placings were a tight affair and after a five-way countback Fay Hardwick got the nod over Barb Barklimore, Chrissy Gilligan, Ann Dunn and Pam Sikora.
All recorded 36 points. Janet Place was next on 35 followed by Janine Ryan with 34.
Angela Fryer and Brenda Fugar won Nearest the Pin prizes on the 8th and 15th holes respectively and were also both part of the best dressed team on the day with Barb Barklimore. (Their pink curly wigs giving them the win.)
At last a Wednesday game was played in the women’s golf schedule last week with no sign of rain. The Par event went ahead and was won by Di Greer with a score of -1.
Pat Polack and Sally Bannister needed a countback to determine second place when both finished with -2. Joy Josephson came home with -3 for 4th place.
Di Greer and Fay Hardwick picked up Nearest the Pin prizes on the 3rd and 15th holes.
