Returning to golf after an enforced break due to the recent wet, Moruya Lady Golfer’s played a closely contested 2nd Medal Stroke Round this week. Whilst the course is still damp, despite the magnificent job by Green’s staff in undertaking the mammoth task of getting the course presentable and playable again, it didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the 29 contenders who ventured out.
Congratulations to the winner’s:
A Grade: Margaret Douglas won the day with a trifecta.
- Overall 1st place, scoring an enviable 73 nett;
- the Monthly Medal;
- NTP on Hole 6 (the only player to get a NTP). Well done Margaret.
B Grade: Barbara Roberts with 79 nett on C/B
C Grade: Joan Hosking with 80 nett.
FSC&TGAT CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS
Once again accolades go to Colette Blacklock on her major achievement of being named the Champion of Champions after her win of the Far South Coast & Tablelands Golf Association Tournament at Cooma on 24-26 March. To be eligible to win this highly prestigious title you must first become a club champion, no easy feat, then compete against other club champions throughout the district.
Colette won several prizes over the 3 day tournament, but her major achievements were winning The Snowy Mountains Cup Open, 36 holes over 2 days, with a gross of 172 and the one day closed event of Champion of Champions, with a score of 84.
Colette now proudly joins the Moruya stable of Champions and looks set to follow in the footsteps of greatly respected stalwart and popular player Barbara Kennedy. Barbara has been Club Champion a monumental 29 times, taken out the C of C title an impressive 12 times, from 1977 to 2004, as well as winning the SMC 5 times;
Melinda Asbury, winner of the C of C a notable 5 times and the SMC 6 times;
Mrs Eva Jones, winner of the C of C in 1975 and the SMC in 1969;
Mrs D Montgomery who won the C of C in 1960 and Mrs J Smith who won the C of C in 1962.
