It was good to see Gwen Mills back to golf and in the winning circle taking out the single stroke April Mid-Week Medal for Division 1 with 74 nett on a countback from President Judy Lester. Division 2 went to Diane Johnston with 77 nett also on a countback from Gill Young. Enjoy your meal vouchers ladies and many thanks to the RSL Memorial Club for their continued sponsorship of Women’s Golf. Judy’s putter was hot being used only 27 times for the first division putting winner and Gill used only 30 putts in her winning runner-up score for the second division. The all-in approach was won by Melanie McLennan with the graded ones going to Marg Adcock, Marlene Vincent and Lois Wilson. Melanie won 2 balls for the Pro Approach and Judy the only other ball on offer.

On Sunday afternoon a group of 20 players enjoyed 9 holes of 2 ball ambrose social golf. Each pairing had one of our new players.  With the laughter and stories being told back in the clubhouse over afternoon tea, everyone had a great time.
