2011 Women’s Mountain Meeting

Entries are now open for the 2011 Women’s Mountain Meeting to be played at Katoomba, Blackheath, Leura and Wentworth Falls Golf Clubs from Monday 17 to Thursday 20 October 2011. ENTER HERE This event is one of the longest running and most popular tournaments on the Golf NSW women’s calendar. The Mountain Meeting began in 1930 and was won by Mrs D. O Brien who received The Yallambee Cup and then in 1970, after event participation numbers expanded, The Blue Mountains Salver for Division Two was introduced; this trophy was donated in appreciation by the Blue Mountains District Council. As recently as the year 2000, The Megalong Valley trophy was introduced for Division Three players, who support and enjoy the Mountain Meeting in ever increasing numbers each year. Last year The Yallambee Cup was won by Kerry Davis from the Wentworth Falls Golf Club and if Kerry has time off from her job at the Blue Mountains Tourist Bureau she will be a contender for this year s title. The Wakehurst Golf Club is usually well represented with both the Blue Mountains Salver and the Megalong Valley trophies being taken home in 2010 by Wakehurst members, Marjorie Davids and Suzanne Rees. The format begins on Monday 17 and Tuesday 18 with 36-hole stroke play for Divisions one and two with 36-hole stableford for Division 3. On Wednesday 19 the Foursomes are held in two divisions and on the final day, Thursday 20, a four person Teams V Par Event completes the tournament. Players can nominate to play in all four days of play or play on individual days of their choice. Golf NSW is happy to assist competitors to find a partner for the foursomes or complete a team of four for the Teams event. The ever popular Trophy Presentation this year will be held on the evening of Wednesday 20 October at Blackheath Golf Club. Entries are now opened and the entry fee is $100.00 for all four days play in the tournament or $35.00 per day per player. For further information contact Donna Mitchell Golf NSW (02) 9505 9105
