Womens Country Week Wrap

29th Aug 2022

Womens country week was held last week across metro Perth with several venues hosting events.

The week started at a cold and blustery Nedlands golf course. Nedlands hosted the silver spoon playoffs.

The course proved challenging for most. The large greenside bunkers and undulating greens proved a major obstacle for the field. Some faired better than others and conquered the field.

The state net winner of the Silver Spoon playoffs was Ellen Mitchell from Wongan Hills.

Kerrie Fewster from Gingin was the State international bowl silver division winner.

Allison Lewis from Beverly was the State international bowl bronze division winner.

Tuesday was at Royal Perth. The course was in fantastic condition with the fast greens proving tricky for both the sand green and grass green players.

Sue Gooch and Carol piper from Dandaragan were the state Jubilee Foursome sand green winners.

The Jubilee Foursomes winners from the Grass green side came from Sea View Golf Club. Janice Campbell and Jan Johnston prevailed on the slick Royal Perth greens.

Wednesday saw the official beginning of Women’s Country week. The Wednesday competition was Canadian fours and had a split field. The two fields competed at Meadow Springs Golf Club and Rockingham Golf Club.

The Canadian foursomes format provided a fun start to the week. Both players tee off and then play alternate shot from the preferred shot off the tee.

The winners at Rockingham in the sand green side were Tammy Wilkins from Kondinin and Kym Smith from Carrigin.

The grass green winners were Carole Mole and Sharon Koch hailing from Busselton.

The Meadow Springs side was won by Shelley Fitzgerald from Pinjarra and Fiona Tempra from Bunbury in the grass green competition.

Lyn Willet and Rhonda Parker from Boyup Brook took out the sand green side at Meadow springs.

Thursday saw the commencement of the individual side of Women’s country week at The Western Australian Golf Club. The Slick greens proved a challenge for many trying to make inroads into the two-day event.

Cottesloe provided a picturesque Perth day for the final day of the week. After a challenging day at The Western Australian Golf Club the fields took to a lush Cottesloe to see who came out on top of the individual side of the week.

The country silver Championship cup was won by Marion Nelson from Denmark.

The winner of the Gladys Hawkes cup was Sue Greaves from Mingenew.

Kathryn Keefe from Bunbury was the winner of the country bronze championship cup.

The best overall silver nett award was won by Kylie Tremlett from Latham, taking out the Silver Salver Tray.

The Perth weather turned it on for an awesome week. All the courses presented incredible well with awesome hospitality to go with it. It was awesome to see so many people come up for what was a fantastic week of golf.
