Pennant: Hill Top scored a win at Numurkah 3/2 defeating Ky Valley View/Rochester to put them on top of the ladder at this early stage.
Hill Top travelled to Ky Valley View on Sunday to play Kialla and was looking for a win to maintain their position on the ladder.
Hill Top’s Women’s Open Championship was played last Friday in perfect golfing weather. This event was generously sponsored once again by Wealth Solution Partners, Retirement Specialists from Kyabram and was represented by Trevor Bassett whose grandfather was Hill Top member Lindsay Bassett.
The course was in excellent condition as many women came from surrounding clubs to play in the event.
The food was enjoyed by all the golfers, especially the table laden with sweets provided by members.
The winner of the championship was decided by a three-hole play-off between Sandy Millett and Tracey Coulston who both returned scores of 84 off the stick.
Sandy Millett proved her steadiness in these tight situations and was the ultimate winner.
Sandy has now won nine Hill Top Championships and hopefully she will come back for her 10th next year.
Hill Top member Di Day was runner-up in the handicap for division three.
Jan Coe 74, Judy Baker, Joan Hill 75, De Reilly, Sheryl Curran 76 and Chris Beard 77 all received balls.
Wednesday’s event: Stableford: Captains Day: Donations to Riding for the Disabled as requested by Terri, instead of presents for the captain.
