15th May, Korumburra Golf Club hosted the prestigious South Gippsland Golf Women’s Singles Championships in ideal weather conditions. Slick greens and heavier than usual conditions were challenging for some players.
Rebecca Thomas from Leongatha Golf Club took out the Singles Championship with 82 off the stick. Rebecca has now claimed this honour twelve times! A great effort. Merryn Dear from Wonthaggi Golf Club had an excellent 73 nett to win the A Grade handicap event.
The B Grade Championship was won by a newcomer to Korumburra Golf Club, Trudi Mantell, with 103. She won this on a count back from Heather Grist, last years’ winner. Trudi also won the B Grade handicap event with 77nett.
The C Grade Championship winner was Inge Giliam from Woorayl Golf Club who was both surprised and delighted at her good fortune. Inge had 115 off the stick and a stableford score of 26 to win the handicap event.
