Mainwaring edges out in form Morrison in stroke round

Eight players cancelled their golf last Wednesday due to the forecast predicting rain, however, it did not eventuate and a field of 28 ladies presented at the Mount Gambier Golf Club to participate in a Stroke Round. The round finalised the Medal of Medals, Putting Competition and the qualifying eight players to take part in the Club Handicap Championship.

The weather was fine but windy, and the course played fairly, with a lot of run on the Fairways and the tee blocks and pin placements set up well.

Eight players conquered the course by carding 73 nett or better. The winner for Division 1 went to former captain Faye Mainwaring 83-15-68 ,which will result in the handicapper reducing her handicap. Faye’s split was 40/43 and she registered 9 Pars and had only 27 putts for her round.

Taking out second placing in Division 1 was Janina Morrison 92-23-69. Janina has hit a purple patch and is reducing her handicap and taking out winning honours a fortnight ago, then again on Monday at Naracoorte and second placing at the weekend. Janina’s split was a very consistent 46/46.

Once again proflicate winning golfer Lizzie Clements won Division 2, 109-38-71. Lizzie’s split was 55/54 and if her putter had behaved she could have scored much better on the day.

Second place went to club stalwart Lois Harvey 104-32-72, only just missing out by one shot to have won her division. Lois had a very good front nine carding 48, however, the long and difficult back nine was her undoing.

Four balls were won by Kerry Pedlar, Helen Gregory, Mary Kentish and Kathy Ewer each receiving a ball for their good efforts.

The Pro Shot on the picturesque 8th par 3 hole went to Bernie Jennings with a really close shot. Bernie received three balls.

The speciality prizes on the and was won for A Grade- Kerry Pedlar and B Grade -Janina Morrison.

The AGM will be held on Wednesday, October 19, at 8.30am for election of officers for 2023. It will be followed by an 18 hole stableford event.


Sixteen ladies played out a Stroke round last Saturday in fine but windy conditions.

Taking out first place was Marie Douglas 97-25-72 with the split for the round being 46/51.

Di O’Donnell 96-23-73, came in second on a countback due to her better back nine, registering 46 back nine and 50 front nine.

Unlucky to miss out on a countback Jess Parsons 101-28-73, came in third place. Jess’s split was 49/52.
