Last Thursday, December 12 12 lady golfers headed out on the front 9 at Scone in perfect golfing weather.
Claire Dalziel was the winner with 19 points, and the balls went to Sarah Howey, Ruth Wallace, Narelle Rutter 18, Julie Leckie, Jo Brown and Kathy Robinson 16.
On Saturday Jo Brown blitzed the field with 39 points in the 18 hole stableford, which was the best score on the course for ladies and men!
Lyn Banks was a ball winner with 33.
The 9 hole Thursday competition will be played today on the back 9, and then return on January 9.
A reminder that the New Year’s Day event is a 9 hole 4 person ambrose for the Keg Trophy.
It will be held in the afternoon with play for members and non-members who would like to try their golf skill in 2014.
The Christmas lunch was well attended and the ladies enjoyed a lovely meal.
