Saturday 23 August 2014

The weather conditions were favourable for the morning players to kick off the 2014 Women’s Weekend Tournament with a pleasant sunny morning. The conditions soon turned gloomy after the afternoon players teed off, experiencing an unpleasant short heavy down poor. The format was an 18-holes single stableford played in Two Divisions.

Manly Golf Club’s Janet Meagher (12) has had a fabulous round of 40 points to win Division One by a massive 8 shots in front of the field. Coming in second place was Stephanie Croft (19) from Kogarah GC with 32 points. Margaret Neeson (13) from Randwick GC had 31 points for third place.

Division Two’s winner was Jacqui Page (31) from Concord GC securing the win with 31 points. Runner Up was Sharlene Wong (21) from Ryde-Parramattta GC with 30 points on a countback from Marissa Wong (32) also from Ryde-Parramatta with 30 points on a countback for third place.


Tomorrow the ladies play in groups of four for an 18-hole Best Ball Teams Event V Par.
