ntha Hinze (Warwick) has won a rain affected 2016 Queensland Women’s Sand Green Championship at Texas Golf Club.
Hinze fired a first round score of five-under par 66 captivated by four successive birdies to start her back nine with only one bogey blemish on the 17th. Carmel O’Keeffe (Springsure) finished Runner Up returning a solid first round of one-under par 70.

In the Bronze I Division, Alpha member Aloma Everingham captured the title after an opening round of 80. Virginia Jamieson of St George equalled Everingham’s score of 80 to place second on a countback.
The Bronze II Division was won by Madeline Jarman (Stanthorpe) after defying her 24 handicap with an opening round of 83, followed by Lola Cuff (St George) with 85.
The Texas Golf Club received extremely positive comments from all involved thanks to the great preparation of their course and kind country hospitality.
