THE popular competition of pinehurst was enjoyed by 14 pairs of women at the Mount Gambier Golf Club last week, generously sponsored by Lorraine Stratford.
Pair competitions create a feeling of team play and engenders a camaraderie not felt in the solo game.
The day was played in bitterly cold weather and heavy course conditions, with the Greens slower than usual.
The winning pair was Anne Headlam and Diann Norman registering 75 nett.
Playing off a 17 handicap they recorded 92-17-75, after a good front nine with 43 off the stick, carding a birdie on the short eighth hole, winning the pro shot.
Taking out second position was the pairing of Faye Mainwaring and Bev Pedlar who posted a nett 77 and they also had a better front nine with 43 off the stick.
There were three pairs of golfers earning themselves a golf ball each in the ball run-down – Carol Davis/Kathie Ewer, Donna Jennings/Denise Harvey and Jan Shanahan/Vicki Clark.
The speciality prizes went to Headlam and Normanfor the pro shot and the combined second shot on the first hole was taken out by the two long hitters Janina Morrison and Jennifer Van Ritjhover.
Next week we will be competing in the fourth round of the Hudson Plumbing Stableford competition.
