Runner up is Maureen Cameron with 42.5 points
Followed by Val McNicholl with 39, Wendy Castator with 37 and Dorothy Hadley with 35.5 


Everyone is encouraged to get out and play.  For every ladies’ golf event you play, you will earn one point.  Events include Ladies Day, President's Cup, Captain's Prize, Four Ball Match Play, Ladies Invitational, IMP, and Ladies Club Championship. A win in a Ladies Day game earns an extra point. A Dunany glass will be awarded to the player with the most points in the A, B, C and D fields and presented at our closing meeting in August.



Thank you to everyone participating in our three match play competitions.  There are 19 players in the Captain's Prize and 36 players in the Four Ball Match Play.  Fantastic turnout! The next round is to be completed by August 6th.
