Ladies and Juniors
Rather a quiet week, course drying out but still plenty of grass.
Was rather warm last Wednesday and we are not used to it yet.
The ladies who played in the RW 4B at Benalla last week had some good scores - 42 and 41 respectively but were not in the race as two from Albury won with 48 and r/up 46, but the sandies held their own.
This week have a team going to Mitta for the Ned Sandgreen Championships, should be fun, the team are J. Williams, N. Duursma, P. Prescott and H. Eggleston, good luck ladies.
On October 18 is the Beechworth tournament with two of our new girls going, Lisa Butterworth and Annie Sinclaire, this being the third of the Drummonds challenge.
Last Wednesday was stableford; the two Pats burnt the course up, well done girls.
Monday 9 holes - Y. Williamson, r/up H. Eggleston.
Wednesday, October 4 stableford - P. Cooper 38 pts, r/up P. Prescott 37 pts, NTP (8th) H. Eggleston.
Good Golfing
