The Lady Golfers recently completed their 2019 Club Championships, three days in perfect weather, the fourth day had to be postponed due to extremely unfavourable weather conditions and played the next Wednesday.
Competition fields for the four rounds were down slightly but daily rounds were boosted by players unable to compete in all the rounds. The wash out also excluded a few players due to other commitments on the final day.
The Lady Golfers would like to sincerely thank D & J Ford Automotive Group and in particular Blue Mountains LDV for again sponsoring the Club Championships this year.
The Club Champion for 2019 was again Sue Brooks who finished with 330 scratch six strokes in front of runner up Lynne Ritchie.
The B Grade Champion was Marie Hackett who won by a sizable margin from Judi Moore and the C Grade Champion was won for the first time by Narelle Potts.
