On Thursday, September 9 eighteen Scone lady golfers played an 18 Hole Stroke / Stableford event for the Monthly Medal. It was kindly sponsored by Melanie’s Jewellers and Mitani Café. On offer also was the “Wine O’Clock Putting” sponsored by Julie Leckie.
The day started very nicely but this didn’t last long with it becoming progressively windy from 10.30am. Janie Holyman had a super round of 68 nett to be the Medal winner. Annie Woods and Dordie Bragg both had fine rounds for 70 nett with Annie being the Runner Up on a countback. Dordie Bragg had the lowest scratch score for the day of 82 but had to settle for a ball for her efforts.
On a difficult day for putting as the greens recover from recent renovations, the wine was won by Lyn Banks who had 31 putts one ahead of Pam Manning. The ball winners were: Janie Holyman 41, Annie Woods, Dordie Bragg 38, Noreen Marshall 37, June Jukes 36, Louise Mathews 34, Cheryl Clydsdale, Mary Ellen Brennan 33 and Vonnie Palmer 32 points.
