Victorian Women's Spring Tournament

30 - 31 October 2017

Golf Victoria runs two Tournaments per year across regional Victoria in Autumn and Spring.

Players at both Tournaments compete to win the Ruby McKenzie Trophy, named in the honour of one of Victoria’s greatest country golfers and former VLGU and Australian Golf Council member until her death in 1928. The ex-Women’s Golf Victoria office in Elsternwick was purchased through a bequest left by Ruby McKenzie for the VLGU, now Golf Victoria.

The Best 36 Hole Nett trophy is named after Vi Teesdale, a former Captain and President of Huntingdale Golf Club. Her expert knowledge of the rules of golf was the reason this trophy is named in her honour.

Tuesday 31 October - Final Round
The final round of the 2017 edition of the Victorian Women’s Spring tournament concluded today in more favourable conditions to that of round one.

As it stood overnight, both the gross and nett titles in all three grades were up for grabs heading into the final round at Mansfield.

The C-Grade nett title was secured by Mansfield local Marion Sargeant, who finished the second round with the best nett score of the day (72) to storm home in the nett standings. Mansfield locals used their knowledge to their advantage in both C-Grade events with Shirley Nolan finishing with a five shot win in the gross event.

The B-Grade nett prize was won by three shots by Beechworths Coral Ward with a score of 155. The B-Grade gross honours featured another Mansfield local Nicki Cooper who was the winner by one shot with a score of 190.

The A-Grade gross event and overall Ruby McKenzie title was taken home by defending champion Jess Pickwick (Kilmore) after a final round 75. Pickwick was victorious by three strokes from Buninyong’s Helen Pascoe and overnight leader Stephanie Wearne (Victoria).

Wearne secured the A-Grade nett and overall Vi Teesdale nett titles with back to back nett rounds of 74 from a daily handicap of 5. It was a dominant win by Wearne, with Judy Langford her nearest challenger on the nett leaderboard five strokes back with a nett total of 153.

All staff at Mansfield GC are to be commended on the condition of the course and hospitality provided to all players at this year’s event.

Monday 30 October - Round 1
This year’s Victorian Women’s Spring tournament began this afternoon in wet and drizzly conditions at Mansfield GC. 91 Women from throughout Victoria took to the par 71 layout having to contend with unpleasant conditions, as intermittent showers dampened the course throughout the afternoon.

At the conclusion of round one, two Shepparton members Ann Pegg and Suzy Phillips-Limon share the C-Grade nett lead after rounds of 78. Pegg also leads the C-Grade gross championship after a round of 102 with Mansfield local Shirley Nolan in second place just one shot off the pace.

The B-Grade nett event is led by Woodends Loretta Matthews after a round of 77. Beechworths Coral Ward sits second overnight after a round of 78. Rosebud local Nola Geary is setting the pace in the B-Grade gross event after a round of 96.

The A-grade nett event is led by Victoria’s Stephanie Wearne who recorded the low nett round of the day, a fine 74 to lead by five shots. Wearne also leads the gross event after round one having been the only player ‘to break 80’ with a round of 79.

Defending champion Jess Pickwick (Kilmore) sits in second place after a round of 80.

Final round action gets underway on Tuesday morning via an 8:00am shotgun start.
