The first day of March brought with it strong winds and bothersome rain as players assembled at the Lancefield Golf Club for the Lancefield Women’s Open Tournament. Thankfully the rain abated but the gusty winds persisted for the duration of the 18 holes making club selection a little tricky even on the shorter par three holes. Grass cover on the fairways was good with relief allowed from the occasional bare patch. The greens were very good or rather tricky depending on who you spoke to.
Cheryl Anderson (Kilmore G. C.) was the tournament winner with a wonderful score of 80 gross, an excellent day’s golf.
Beryl Cole, was runner up in B Grade.
Wendy Gosden was the C Grade winner; 100/32/68. Wendy also won the day’s veteran’s event and was nearest the pin on the 16th, not a bad day’s work.
