PLAYED over four rounds in two weeks, the Narooma ladies Club Championships produced some fine golf from all of the 21 women competing.
The highly talented Sylvia Donohoe once again came up with the goods to trounce the rest of the field by some 42 shots.
This makes her the Club Champion for the sixth successive year, which together with her two wins from the 1960's is a truly remarkable feat. Bettina Wilson led her division from the start to become the division 2 champion from the always consistent Val Spooner.
Worthy net winners were Dierdre Landells and Loraine Gibbons in their respective divisions. This year’s Silver Salver, for division 1 players with a handicap of 15 and above, went to Kay Lawrence.
The Professional's Trophy (sponsored by the club professional, Colin Holmes), awarded for the best net score in the final 2 rounds, was won by Dorelle Monteith, who was also the division 1 scratch runner-up.
With the change this year from 3 divisions to 2, results were more unpredictable than previously with several players surprised at their success in a different division.
