The first of two Doris Chambers State Finals was played today at the Cranbourne Golf Club in Melbourne’s south east, with 138 women participants involved.

With October being Golf Month, it was fitting that club qualifiers congregated to the Metropolitan area to compete in the State Final. Each Golf Victoria affiliated club wishing to take part in the Foursomes Stableford competition plays a club qualifying round on its own course with the winners advancing to one of two finals, dependent on the clubs’ location.

Winners of the AM field were Rosanna pair Lynette Rose and Lorraine Irving who scored 31 foursomes stableford points. In second place on a countback and only 1 point behind the winners was Cheryl Adams and Connie Clifford from Ranfurlie. Missing out on the second position to Adams and Clifford was the combination of Anne Kaiser and Andree Leigh from Yarra Yarra.

The PM field was won by Chris Munday and June Pusmacans from Maffra, who also returned 31 points for their round. The win today rounds out a big week of golf for Munday who was heavily involved in the East Gippsland winning Country Teams region. The duo were also the overall winners for the day which will see their name etched on the Doris Chambers Trophy for the first State Final of 2018. Coming in second place on a 3 way countback was Merryn Dear and Shirley Turner from Churchill & Monash Golf Club.

Blustery wind throughout the day made scoring tough, considering the conditions scoring for all today was outstanding. Around another 140 participants will now contest the second State Final which is to be played at the Sanctuary Lakes Club next Thursday 11 October. Everyone will be trying to get their names engraved alongside Munday and Pusmacans.
