Women - 27/10/2020

Warwick Women’s Golf 

Wednesday 21st October Many wet souls were out there today, but not too many complaints. 

12 women completed their rounds in the mid-week Monthly Medal. Thank you to the Warwick RSL Memorial Club for coming back on board with your sponsorship, it is so very much appreciated by all.Coming in, in pole position in Division 1 was Gwen Mills with a great 71 nett. Melanie McLennan was runner up for Division 1 with 77 nett. Melanie’s group played the last few holes in the rain, while Gwen & her playing partners were quite drenched after playing the last 4 holes in the pouring rain.Such unfamiliar conditions to play in these days, but lovely to see. 

Dian Macdonald certainly found her game today, coming in with a fantastic 68 nett in Division 2!! Awesome golf Di. Runner up for this division was Lyn Gibson, who had a great day as well with a fine 73 nett. The putting for Division 1 was won by Gwen, while Division 2 was taken out by Patti Hemmings, both ladies had 29 putts.  Balls in the rundown were reduced to 4 owing to the lesser competitor numbers, but went to Judy Stiff 74, Sharron Cooper 75, Patti Hemmings 76 & Ann Tomkins 77. The other 2 ladies who finished the game were Joan Burt 79 & Tub Ingall 83.

Congratulations to everyone for braving it out. Just think ... once, a very long time ago, we played in the rain all the time and we are certainly loving the rain right now.

Saturday 24th October – Eight brave ladies - Jilly Barnes, Mel McLennan, Michelle Wright, Gwen Mills, Anna Cox, Sam Hinze, Judy Lester & Margie Adcock took to the course knowing the radar was showing some very good rain on the way. In true spirit they ventured on for the Semi Final of the JD Rowland Foursomes. In true style the heavens opened up and drenched our semi-finalists. Even though it was unpleasant they didn’t mind the beautiful rain that we all have been wanting for a long time. Jilly Barnes & Mel McLennan defeated Gwen Mills & Michelle Wright 6/4. In a close match Anna Cox & Sam Hinze defeated Judy Lester & Margie Adcock 3/2.

Sunday 25th October – J.D. Rowland Finals 2020

Congratulations to Sam & Anna for winning the JD Rowland Foursome Championship and also to the runners up Mel & Jill.  There was some great golf on show with Sam & Anna winning 5/4 after being all square at the turn. The weather was much more agreeable today with no rain until after the presentation on the deck.  A big thank you to Ian & Janine Stewart for providing this trophy for the last several years with the ladies loving their gifts.

Monday 26th October - A lot of our members played in the ProAm which our tireless Trainee golf pro’s Stephen Klease & Connor Cruice worked so hard to organise. Well done to you both as this is a mammoth task and you both should be very proud of the success this day was.

Next Saturday 31st we have a Trick or Treat Fun Halloween game and I am looking forward to seeing what the ladies come up with in their dress ups and of course their buggies too! It will be a single stableford with an unusual pairing card to add some fun into the day. Please book online with a partner even though it is a single stableford. We will play our own card and have a partner card. Many thanks to Country Smiles Dental Services for sponsoring this fun day for us. Kathy Payne will be at presentation so come on up to say hello please.  

Wednesday 4thNovember is a Coffee Club sponsored single stableford. 

Happy Golfing everyone.
