Hawks Nest Ladies Golf

Carol Wiggins, Annie Benton and Jo Scott are June Monthly Medal Winners.

SATURDAY’S fixture was washed out again, which was frustrating for the ladies.

Tuesday, however, was a lovely day on the course and 45 players teed off under sunny skies. Today’s event was a Monthly Medal Stroke Round, so it was good to see so many starters.

Also this week, congratulations to Liz Edmunds who won Division 4 at the Tuncurry Ladies Open Day. Hawks Nest was well represented at this very enjoyable day, with 17 players competing in a field of 143.

Match Play Update: We’re getting down to the wire now, and at the time of writing Denise Sainty will play the winner of the Jo Buttrey/ Fran Henderson match. Denise won through to the final after an epic 22 hole battle with Helen Haynes, so there’s no doubt that the last games will be hard fought for the Match Play honours.

Thursday’s Lady Veterans 9 Hole Competition was a little wet underfoot after an overnight storm, but a good field of 50 ladies teed off today. We welcomed Nikki, a visitor from Dungog, and our newest member, Trish Campbell in her first vets competition.
