Not to be deterred by the warm weather
conditions, 11 ladies took to the Mt Barker/
Hahndorf Golf course last Tuesday and beat
the heat by playing a Stableford round early.
Making a return from several weeks absence was the
winner of the day Tina Gambrell.
She dusted off her clubs, polished up her shoes, donned
her best golfing attire and took to the course for the nine
hole competition and made the game look easy.
Twenty Stableford points resulted in Gambrell taking out
the Pro Shop Voucher.
Playing consistent golf and runner up with 18 points was
Sylvia Evans, who we will call “Happy Feet” upon her return
from a cruise trip to the Antarctic Circle.
What some golfers will do to dodge the heat!
Wendy Deayton, who is often seen playing with her
teenage grandson, took some tips from his game and
finished in third place with 18 points winning on a count
back from Sharon Phoenix.
Captain Pat Page had to be happy with her 16 points and
The two newcomers to the club in Lesley Buckingham
and Gail Elder are to be congratulated and encouraged for
taking part in the competition and reaching double figures.
The whole club is enjoying watching the ladies step up
into the competitions and wish them all the best, as both
take off on their new golfing venture.

Bock for Pennants, which commence on March 15.
