Busy time at the lakes

CONSISTENT PERFORMER: Sorrentos Café Summer trophy 2021 winner Dianne Allen.


A FULL program faced the women at the Blue Lake Golf Club last Wednesday which included the second round of the Collins Court Butcher Captain’s Trophy, the March monthly medal sponsored by Grant and Dianne Perryman and the second and final qualifying round of the Handicap Championships all played in stroke format.

Women’s president Beryl Mahoney claimed the monthly medal win and will be presented at the end-of-year presentations.

The long set up of the course and difficult pin placements presented some challenges for the majority but at least the sun was shining after the previous week’s dismal conditions.

Division 1’s Ronda Edwards led the way to take the top voucher by one stroke from Sue Agars.

Edwards had a slow start on the front nine, playing seven strokes over but the back nine was a different story as she scored three under to finish with nett 76.

Agars also struggled on the front nine with five strokes over but was able to finish the back nine square to her handicap to sign for nett 77.

Beryl Mahoney was the runaway winner in Division 2, carding 101-30-71 which included par’s on the fifth and 12th holes.

Once again it was Lesley McPherson on the podium, this time as runner-up, after posting 109-32-77.

Her card included par’s on the ninth and 12th holes.

Annette Ford was the pro-shot winner on the par three fifth hole and nearest to the pin second shot on the 16th were Division 1’s Cherryl Hill and Division 2’s Karen Panagopolous.

Winners with the flat stick for the putting prize, Division 1’s Rosemary Maryland and Division 2’s Beryl Mahoney both had 28 putts.

At presentation’s Dianne Allen was announced as the winner of the 2021 Sorrentos Café Summer trophy after points were tallied for the best three of four round scores.
