Women - 3/9/2020

Warwick Women’s Golf 

Wednesday 26thAugust. We had the best of both worlds, a little nip in the air to start the day, and then a touch of beautiful weather, which gave us a taste of what Spring will have to offer. 27 keen ladies teed off for the return of the RSL sponsored Mid-Week Monthly Medal. So lovely to see them up and running again, and we would like to thank them for their generous sponsorship. Anna Cox returned to her great form today to take out Division 1 with a fantastic 69nett, followed by runner up Marg Adcock with 71. Great golfing ladies. 

Division 2 saw Vicki Bennett continue her fine form to take home the winning voucher, with 72 nett, on a count back from Patti Hemmings & Lyn Gibson, with Patti sneaking ahead to take the runner up title. Great golfing ladies!! The rest of the field followed the winning scores like this...Div 1- Judy Lester 71, Mary Young 72, Kath Devereux & Di Evans 74, Jill Barnes & Gwen Mills 75, Janine Stewart 76, Majella Kahler 80 and Melanie McLennan 84. Div 2- Lyn Gibson72, Helen Olsen 73, Roslyn Darton & Dian Macdonald 74, Annice Payne & Yvonne Pinington 75, Michelle Wright 76, Judy Stiff & Tub Ingall 78, Zel Crook 79, Wendy Rhea & Ann Ellis 84, Jacki Millard & Trish Bell 85. Balls in the rundown went to Judy Lester, Mary Young, Lyn Gibson & Helen Olsen, with the extra Balls going to Kath Devereux, Di Evans, Roslyn Darton & Dian Macdonald. To add to the chuckles out there on the course, Jill did a few clever shots to produce not one but two great gobbles. Margie managed to add to her collection of gobbles with another one today too! So there ends another great Wednesday on the Warwick Golf course, the days are getting longer, and wind a little kinder to us. 

Saturday 29th August. With Spring in the air the sun shone down on 29 competitors who ventured out to contest the popular Coffee Club Sponsored Single Stableford. 

Melanie McLennan took to the course like a champagne with a fantastic 41 points!!

Melanie’s great score will also push her up the shootout board. Something that we are all so aware of at this time of year, as there are some super hot scores to beat to stay amongst the top 19 players. Mary Young was the clubhouse leader with an awesome 38 points until the last group came in, but held on to her runner up position convincingly. Well done Melanie and Mary, no doubt it feels nice to be up there in the winning circle. 

Balls in the rundown & the extra balls went to Janine Stewart & Patricia Eastwell 36pts, Anna Cox, Di Evans & Ann Ellis 35pts, Kath Morrison, Margie Adcock & Jilly Barnes 34pts Congratulations Ladies, nice rounds. The rest of the field scored as follows- Annice Payne 34pts, Gwen Mills & Janet Davis 33pts, Anne Lyons, Vicki Bennett, Kath Devereux, Wendy Rhea & Judy Lester 32pts, Michelle Wright & Liz Cockram 31pts, Tracey Farrell, Zell Crook & Marge Burley 30pts, Molly Scotney 29pts, Tub Ingall & Ann Tomkins 28pts, Louise Carey & Helen Olsen 26pts, Yvonne Pinington 24pts.

Thank you to Petula & the Gang at The Coffee Club Warwick for your great sponsorship, your trophy is always so popular, and very sought after.

Congratulations to our Gertrude McLeod Winners for 2020. This event is won by the player in each Division with the lowest 3 nett stroke rounds between March and August, calculated in relation to the DSR of the course on the day. Jill Barnes is our Div 1 winner with her combined best 3 scores being 7 shots below the DSR, Helen Olsen won Div 2 with her 3 best scores 8 shots below and Roslyn Darton winning Div 3 winner with a massive 13 strokes below. Even though Ros is now in Div 2, two of the three games were while she was in Div 3. Ros is now going on to play in the Winners’ Event at Surfers Paradise Golf Club at the end of September. Well played to each of these ladies.

By now you will be using the new online booking system to book your games for both Wednesday and Saturday. Please see a Committee member or the Proshop if you need help to get online and book your game or refer to the email sent from Don including directions from Ros. A reminder that even though we are asking to book for Wednesday afternoon golf we will still be having a draw for partners.  

On Saturday 5thSeptember we play our Monthly Medal and the following Wednesday 9thSeptember we have a Single Stableford kindly donated by Classic Dimensions which will be very popular with the ladies.
