Hawks Nest Ladies Golf

Winner Kathy Griffiths with Tuesday Grandmother’s Trophy Donor, Di Davis.

ONCE again Saturday was a wash out, so no play for the Hawks Nest Ladies golfers this weekend.

Tuesday 25 June Ladies Stableford

51 players teed off in perfect winter golfing conditions today: sunny and warm, no breeze, and the course in good condition considering the recent rain.

As the morning warmed up the layers came off, and many ladies finished their round in short sleeves for a change.

Those ladies on the 16th when the sprinkler malfunctioned, however, got a bit wet, which cooled things down towards the end.

Today’s round was the Tuesday Grandmother’s Trophy, always a popular event in the calendar.

The best chip in today came from June Biddell on the 7th hole from 35 metres out.

With 2 balls already on the green, she chipped with her 8 iron and her ball ran nicely between the others into the hole, scoring a birdie 3 for 4 points. Play of the day June, well done!

The winner of the Tuesday Grandmother’s Trophy was Kathy Griffiths.

Special thanks to our trophy prize donors Di Davis and Annie Benton. Congratulations to all our players in these events!

Results Tuesday 25th June 2024 Lady Vets 9 Hole Stableford Event

10 ladies took part today, enjoying the beautiful conditions.

Rhonda Dorman was especially pleased with herself, chipping in on the 2nd hole, going on to a top 3 finish.

1st Sue Nicholson on 17; 2nd Pat Marr 15 C/B; 3rd Rhonda Dorman 15.

Well done everyone!

Thursday Lady Veterans 9 Hole Event Grey Tees

There were 52 ladies who took to the fairways today in very pleasant conditions.

Hitting from the grey tees means a shorter course game, a favourite with many ladies who don’t hit the ball as far as they once might have, but who remain deadly accurate with their chipping and putting.

Results for Tuesday 25th June Lady Vets Grey Tees Competition

1st Julie Freeland on -6; 2nd Janet Olsen -3; 3rd Pauline Barham -2; 4th Ann Browning 0 C/B; 5th Jean Prigg 0.

Two ladies scored birdies today, the in-form June Biddle with a chip in birdie on the 18th; and Jo Scott who birdied the 10th in great style, landing her tee shot 2 metres from the pin before acing her putt for an exciting birdie. Well played!

Other chip ins from Maureen Ward on the 6th, Sue Kovacs on the 8th and Viv Ballinger on the 17th.

NTP 3rd Hole: 1st Div Denise Sainty; 2nd Div Julie Freeland; 3rd Div Sue Brownrigg
