WA Golf Club have maintained their lead in Women’s Division One Pennant thanks to a tightly fought win over Royal Perth on Sunday.
Royal Perth was strengthened by the return of their two state representatives, Yeah-Jin Lee and Brooke Price.
Lee shook off any lingering fatigue from a week in Hobart and enjoyed a strong 4&3 victory to take number one position. However, this proved to be too little too late as WA Golf Club had already secured the four matches they needed to ensure they remain atop the ladder.
Lake Karrinyup Country Club continues to impress, and their 6-1 demolition of Cottesloe may well strike fear into the hearts of their opponents. Carmen Palframen, Sheridan Clancy and Maddi Baxter all stormed to impressive wins in their individual matches.
Lake Karrinyup currently sits two points off the lead but hold the advantage of already having had their bye. Next weekend will be an exciting encounter when Lake Karrinyup and WA Golf Club go head-to-head.
Mount Lawley Golf Club welcomed Kirsten Rudgeley and Eve Cohen back from state team duties and both recorded impressive 4&2 victories.
Amanda Gan and Erina Tan were the standout performers for Mount Lawley, recording 9&8 and 8&6 victories respectively.
The competition moves to Mount Lawley Golf Club next weekend where Wanneroo and Royal Fremantle will do battle. This could prove to be a pivotal contest to avoid relegation.
Despite a 4-3 loss to Melville Glades, Royal Perth remain atop the Division Two ladder thanks to a superior for/against record.
Lake Karrinyup won the first five matches of their contest with Nedlands to record an impressive 5-2 victory. Mount Lawley also enjoyed a 5-2 victory over WA Golf Club.
The table is incredibly tight in Division Two with six teams all sitting within two points of the top of the table. The scene is set for an intriguing season ahead.
The opening round of Division Three Pennants saw some very one-sided results.
Cottesloe convincingly won their opening fixture 6-1 over the ladies from Royal Perth. Pat Murphy was the sole victor for Royal Perth who will be hoping to bounce back next week when they face Joondalup.
Joondalup dominated Gosnells to run away with a 5-2 victory. Gosnells recorded two walkovers due to a cart infringement from two Joondalup players. This is a timely reminder that everyone should familiarise themselves with GolfWA’s playing conditions and rules.
Mandurah also got their season off to a winning start with a 6-1 win over Royal Fremantle. Mandurah’s Katie Robson and Jan Walker had standout victories, winning 7&5 and 6&4 respectively.
