Goombungee ladies put on a beautiful day with great food and hospitality and what a spectacular course to play this championship, it was superb, thank you Goombungee Golf Club.
The committee would like to thank the ladies for supporting the event, however numbers were down on previous years. Due to small nominations the ladies got to play a lot of golf over the two days making their support worthwhile.
We must also congratulate our tournament director Ruth Hungerford for another job well done, thank you Ruth as we all know this was not an easy job.
SAND GREENS turn again! Every 4 years the District Championships returns to a Sand Greens course. This year Mitchell Golf Club hosted the very successful event with 88 nominations for the Foursomes event which precedes the Stroke play Championship, in which there were 97 nominations. The weather was perfect for the event - cool nights and warm clear days.
The Foursomes Event is somewhat of a ‘practice’ round especially for grass green players! And probably fair to say that some benefited from the day more than others. With tee up or preferred lie through the green in place, it was going to make for some exceptional scores over the tournament. A shotgun start insured an early return to the clubhouse.
