Yarra Yarra Golf Club v Leongatha Golf Club Ladies Challenge Friday November 4th 2016
This event was the brain child of Bec Thomas & Yarra Yarra Ladies Captain Andree Leigh. Twenty women travelled to Leongatha to play 4 BBB stableford against 20 LGC women. The day began with a delicious lunch, our thanks to Ros, Wendy Brown & others too numerous to mention. Josh & Shirley also welcomed Yarra’s Manager & Course Superintendent Peter & Ross who played golf with Josh. The beautiful annual / perpetual trophy, a silver plate etched with the Club emblems of Yarra Yarra & Leongatha. This was housed in a glass fronted wooden container. Despite the warmer weather, afternoon play & gale force winds, a great day was had by all. After play we enjoyed delicious finger food & fruit. Home ground advantage ( Yarra Yarra is quite flat) saw Leongatha Golf Club victorious. The gauntlet has well and truly been thrown down as Yarra Yarra play host to us next year. They are out for revenge.
The individual event for the day was won by Marg Griffiths & Pat Pease with 43 stableford points
Runners Up were Dot Stubbs & Lianne Adamson with 39 points
The aggregate team scores were LGC 356 points & Yarra Yarra 326 points.
It was a great day, thoroughly evident by the level of noise in the clubhouse . Congratulations to Women’s Captain Shirley Welsford for all the preparation she put into making sure the event was a success. Well done Shirley, you did our Club proud.
