The Ruby McKenzie Salver was contested at Woodend Golf Club, Ruby was one of Victoria’s greatest country golfers and former VLGU and Australian Golf Council member and played her early golf at the Woodend club. The Woodend G. C. website the club states, “…. our course is not long but presents a great many challenges for golfers of all abilities.” and that proved to be the case! The hilly nature of the course requires careful placement on the fairways and a deft touch around the tricky greens. The course was in fantastic condition, though scoring well proved to be quite difficult. The signature par 3, 11th hole, which has the tee situated very high above the green, is a wonderful hole and today Wendy Gosden managed to earn the Nearest the Pin award on that hole. Romsey’s representatives were Lorraine Robb and Darlene Baker. All three players, along with the rest of the field, enjoyed the perfect weather, delighted in the challenge of the course and had a lovely lunch after the game.
Woodend member Maureen Warrener had 38pts with the next best score being 32.
Congratulations to the Woodend team who combined well to win the Ruby McKenzie Salver.
