Despite the prayers and well wishes to the weather gods, it’s shaping to be a wet weekend in Denmark for the GolfWA Provincial Tournament. Today’s Canadian Foursomes marked the beginning of a weekend that will be enjoyed by 97 players from all over the state.
They say home course knowledge is the biggest advantage you can have as a golfer and it proved to be true today. Denmark Country Club’s very own Marion Nelson and Annette Harbron tore around their home course to take home this year’s Canadian Foursomes. Marion, who also had a huge hand in organising this year’s event was happy with her pair’s gross score of 22.
“It’s going to be a fantastic weekend. There’s been a lot of preparation go into upgrading our course lately and it’s rewarding to see so many ladies enjoying it today and hopefully the weekend. As long as the rain stays away”, Marion finished with crossed fingers.
Gross runners up were Suzie Johns and Andrea Reynolds from Dongara and Miling respectively. They were followed by Busselton and Capel’s Jill Hibben and Lisa Wake. Those two pairs finished with gross scores of 16 and 14.
On the net side of the scoring, Sandra Sav from Harvey Golf Club and Katie O’Halloran from Kojonup finished on top of the leaderboard with an impressive score of 28. Sue Brennan (Geraldton) and Jill Holmes (Mingenew) closely followed in second with 26, separated by a countback from third placed WAGC pair Jeanette Fellows and Irene Street.
Meanwhile our Sand Green champions were Mount Barker pair Kerry Steicke and Leanne Warren, whilst the Grass Green champs for this year’s Provincial Canadian Foursomes was Carol Garland and Raeleen McGregor from Spalding Park.
