Hawks Nest Ladies Golf Report

Monthly Medal Winners Maxine Mitchell, Di Bowes and Debbie Andrews.

AT LAST! A perfect autumn day for the Tuesday Ladies Competition! It seems like a long time since we’ve managed to get a full game played without storm and tempest to deal with, so Tuesday was a welcome ray of sunshine for the 40 ladies who teed off in the May Monthly Medal Round. Our numbers may have been down a little as the extraordinary weeks of heavy rain meant the course was still pretty wet, and unforgiving off the fairways in the velcro.

However, it was good to see that the dam has been topped up, with plenty of birdlife enjoying the high tide (though perhaps a few unhappy golfers who didn’t clear the water this time).

There was no NTP this week, though plenty of ladies chipped in from off the greens today including Maxine Mitchell on the 14th for a birdie 4; Helen Haynes from the bunker on the 10th; and others by Karen Serhan, Judy Benson, Carol Maher and Donna Gorton. June Biddell was not quite so lucky when her ball was chewed up and spat out by one of the mowers!
