The Women Vets had their Christmas Function and Prize Giving at Shandon on Monday, they had a wonderful day the ball was running, the wind blowing and the scores were amazing!! Two of our Ladies Noeline Berkett got 3rd on 47 Stablefords, and Erica Wood 6th on 45 Stableford, further down the track Pat Sinding, Faye Turner and Robyn Smith all 26th on 40 Stablefords. There were 33 players with 40 or more Stableford points from a field of 72. The 9 holers numbered 25, so a total field of 97 was a really pleasing turnout after the dismal year they have had.

Carole Medway won the Pam Bryant Trophy for best overall performance in 2017. Congratulations!!!!
