ILUKA LADIES GOLF RESULTS
14TH NOVEMBER 2018
On Wednesday 14th November the ladies played a Single
Stableford sponsored by Iluka Ladies Golf in honour of our late member/friend
Jean Park. Jeannie was a long time golfer and supporter of ladies golf in Iluka
and as the winners accepted their trophies each had a funny story to tell of
Jeannie. The second raffle prize was a bottle of Jean's favourite tipple and
Sandi offered it around to drink a toast to Jean.
A pleasant day's golf was enjoyed by the players, and I
understand Lorraine is giving chipping lessons - "how to chip in from 20 -
30 metres out."

If You thought the rugby league State of Origin

event at the Iluka Golf Club on Saturday.
Only 0.7 of a shot separated the team averages – the Queensland Cane Toads coming out on top of the
NSW Cockroaches 33.7 to 33.0.
In the individual event Patricia Freeman led home the
ladies with 34 points from runner up Colleen Hartcher on 32 whose countback put
her ahead of Val George.
A similar situation eventuated in the men’s division when Neil Grady accumulated 41 points to
head Paul Mitchell on 40 with Jim Lowe
coming off second best on a countback, also on 40.
In the non-handicap division it was Robert Connolly
who came out on top with 38 points.
The Bradmans trophy for the Queenslanders went to Jim
Wride and for the Cockroaches to Jon McEwen who made a welcome return to the
nearest the pins were won by Dwain Sullivan on 6/15 and Jim Pritchard on 8/17
with no players hitting the green on 1/10.
