The Lithgow pairing of Olwyn King and Lynne Ritchie are off to Bonville to compete in the state final of the Golf NSW Keno four ball event.

The district qualifying event was held at Leura recently.

Two teams from each of the Mountain clubs turned up aiming to win the coveted three day, all expenses paid prize to the Bonville club near Coffs Harbour. 

The Lithgow pair were best with a plus 6 score, winning by only one.

The final is scheduled for November 21 to 24. Well done and good luck to the Lithgow team.

At home the Lithgow course is beginning to suffer from lack of rain becoming very dry.

This was evident when the winning team scored 54 points in a three-person stableford event last Wednesday.

The team members were Janice Marshall, Beryl MacDonald and Margaret Café.

The runners up on 50 points were the trophy donors, Pat Livermore, Judy Charman and Patty Aidulis.

On Saturday the winner with 39 points was Anne Doohan.

Recently the September monthly medals were played and the ladies wish to thank Helloworld for their sponsorship of the yearly event.

Winner in first division was Olwyn King with a  good score of 71 nett while the second division winner was the ever consistent Malva McDonald with 70 nett.

The Ladies Committee has been re-elected with Judi Moore returned as president. Vice president is Anne Doohan, captain Marie Hackett, secretary Lynne Ritchie, and treasurer Di McGuire.

The general committee members are Pat Livermore and Trish Beljon.

The Lady Golfers thank these players for continuing to administer golf within the Lithgow Golf Club.
