This year we had 16 clubs represented at our District Championships with close to 100 players over 3 days of golf which I believe is a great response considering the terrible drought conditions we are currently experiencing so thank you ladies for your support.
The Roma course was challenging at times due to the dry conditions but the players took it in their spirits to accept it for what it was as we know the Roma Golf Club did the best possible to have the course in the best condition under the circumstances. They put on a great 3 days with a nice dinner on Monday night and supplied beautiful morning tea and lunches so thank you Roma.
With the weather predicted to be extremely hot we had a great roll up for this annual event 17 teams nominated from the district, Cabarlah, Chinchilla,City, Clifton, Gatton, Goombungee, Dalby, Cecil Plains, Pittsworth, Oakey, St George, Stanthorpe,Texas , Roma, Toowoomba, Warwick, and D&SW. Cecil Plains Golf Club welcomed the ladies and provided us with great hospitality, the course was in good condition and the lunch and dessert was very much appreciated after a very hot day. Thank you Cecil Plains Golf Club for looking after us once again. We played a Stableford Event with 3 players to a team.
