The Gunnedah Women’s Golfers put in a strong showing at the North and North Western District Ladies Golf Association Annual Tournament last week.
The Gunnedah golfers made the trip to Tamworth for the tournament at the Longyard Golf Course with a number of players finishing toward the top of the leaderboard across the three divisions.
Gunnedah Women's Golf president Coral Lorimer was one of the golfers to go well as she finished runner-up for the Betty Cross Salver in the division three championship.
“I was very happy and quite surprised. We didn’t have particularly good scores,” Lorimer said.
Despite thinking the scores weren’t that great, Lorimer knew why it seemed that way.
“It’s [Longyard] very different [to Gunnedah]. It’s a links course with hardly any trees and huge bunkers which we had a lot of trouble with,” Lorimer said.
“Considering how hard the Longyard course is, I think we did alright.”
Gunnedah’s Helen Baker also claimed a runner-up crown in the division two championship.
While the Gunnedah team of Michelle Johnstone, Sally Toppin, Helen Baker and Tammy Sheridan came second in the team aggregate event.
Day two was where Gunnedah golfers excelled as Baker finished second in both stroke and scratch events while Lyn Pollock had the second best round in division three followed by Lorimer in third.
In division one, Sally Toppin was second in the stroke handicap while she also won the veterans stroke handicap crowns.
