The annual D&SW District Ladies Golf Handicap Matchplay Championships were held at Borneo Barracks on 16th & 17th April. Many clubs were represented from the district with players coming from as far as Goondiwindi and Chinchilla to participate in the event.
The first day results saw some players relegated to contest the plate and flight events after up to 36 holes of matchplay competition.
Rain and thick fog threatened day two of the event, but that did not deter the competitors who teed off at 8am with only 80 metres vision on the fairways and the possibility of another 36 holes to play.
Sunny skies in the afternoon made way for junior, Tyanna Cox(17), from Crow’s Nest to defeat the host club’s player Annie Hewitt(10) 5/4 in the Silver Division. Bronze 1 winner was Jenny Bradford from City who defeated fellow club member Liz Hudson 2/1. Toowoomba Golf Club member Joan Copeland defeated City player Anne Woodroffe to win Bronze 2, 1up.
