Wednesday’s American foursomes event, sponsored by Kings Foodworks, welcomed the winter season of golf and the presentation of the summer golf season trophies.
Summer conditions prevailed as golfers hit off at 8.30am to avoid the hottest part of the day.
The draw for partners suited Liz Mulcahy and Sue Turnbull as they combined well to win the event with 75.875 nett. Elaine Dunk and Gail Wooten were runners-up with 76.75 nett.
Ball winners: Sheryl Curran/Deb Reilly 79.5, Lyn Flett/Bev Roberts and Heather Long/Joan Jenkins 80.125.
Nearest-the-pins: third Gallery Café, Heather Long; sixth Tatura Hot Bread, Bev Roberts; ninth Café Alofa, Di Day; 14th One4One Café, Chris Coleman.
Golf was followed by a two-course lunch and presentation of the summer golf trophies.
The Mary Lally Summer Cup has been generously sponsored by the Lally family for 51 years in honour of their mother Mary, who was a valued member at Hill Top.
Mary initiated the event to encourage golfers to play during summer months. Points are awarded each week on alternating nine holes in summer.
The winners this year could not be separated in points. Terri Wangeman and a surprised Joan Hill, who did not believe she had played so well, were presented with the Mary Lally Cup and the prize generously sponsored by president Francie Mark.
A popular win of the summer eclectic was president Francie Mark, kindly sponsored by Pat Serra.
On equal points to be runners-up in the summer eclectic were Terri Wangeman and Jan Coe, sponsored by Lyn Flett and Bev Roberts.
Summer 4BBB knockout competition winners Sheryl Curran and Di Day were presented with their trophies by donor Joan Hill. Runners-up Robyn Downs and Terri Wangeman were presented with their trophies by donors Deb Reilly and Wilma Saunders.
Holes in one: Two members were lucky enough to enjoy holes-in-one during summer.
Joyce Tavener and Jan Coe were presented with the balls mounted as a special keepsake.
Wednesday’s event: Golf will continue at the same time until after daylight saving ends.
Stroke: Monthly medal first round Hill Top brooch, first round putting, winter eclectic and consistency points. Block Entry: $10 payable on Wednesday which includes Hill Top brooch and silver spoon.
