Women - 29/3/2021

Warwick Women’s Golf Notes for the week of 29th March With the glorious rain during the week it was not a surprise that all Wednesday golf was cancelled. Clifton Open Day was postponed yet again to a date to be announced. Locally the Crimestoppers’ Day was postponed to April 28th. Meanwhile the course was closed until Friday when we hosted the first Adam Falconer Shield Pennants event for the year. The green staff and volunteers did an amazing job to present the course as it was and despite the difficult conditions with heavy grass and no run, the visitors had a great day with many convincing wins recorded. As expected City and Toowoomba are leading the points tally. On Saturday 27th Gary Russell-Sharam sponsored his President’s Day for the year. Many thanks Gary for your lovely gifts. Twenty women took out cards in what was a challenging day at the office for some. It seemed the tail end group, while finding the course difficult had the most fun and continued to commiserate with each other on the deck following play. The fancy bar drinks were tested! Mary Young and the ever-consistent Yvonne Pinington brought in the winning score of 34 pts each with Mary winning on a countback. Balls in the rundown went to Molly Scotney 30, Helen Olsen 29, Dian Macdonald 28 and the three ladies on 27 using the countback scoring method were Anne Lyons Margaret Adcock and Annice Payne. Remaining scores:- V Bennett 27, M Kahler 26, T Bell L Cockram 24, G Mills 23, J Barnes T Ingall 22, M McLennan K Devereux J Davis 21, R Darton 20 and M Wright. Wednesday 31st in the fifth Wednesday of the month and is sponsored by the Sporters Club. They have programmed their annual Rose Bowl and Shield on the day played as a single stableford so ladies we are playing for the Rose Bowl. Easter Saturday is also a single stableford sponsored by Cherry Tree Coffee & Dining, a favourite place for Warwick golfing ladies to frequent. On Wednesday April 7th the RSL sponsored March Mid-Week Medal will be played. Please note that a COVID Safe Plan is now operating for golf. There is a new Govt QR scanning code in the ProShop, inside the Clubhouse, and in both the female and male toilets. Please register your attendance through any of these entrances just the once for each day. Playing conditions re not touching the flags and preferring your ball in bunkers still apply. Safe travelling for anyone leaving town for Easter and the holidays.
