women's winners
L-R: Bobette Wilkinson (65+ Champion), Kim Burke (Championship) & Helen Drake (55-64 Champion)

 Kim Burke (Shelly Beach) has made her trip down to country Victoria more than worthwhile by taking out the 2018 Victorian Women’s Senior Amateur Championship with a 4/2 victory at Hill Top GC.

Burke, who is also the current Northern Territory and Queensland Senior Champion, was delighted to add the Victorian trophy to her collection.

Burke was victorious over a gallant Sandra Collingwood (Keysborough) in the championship final.

Collingwood had earlier defeated number 1 qualifer and current Victorian Women’s Senior Order of Merit leader, Helen Pascoe, in a terrific match that saw her clinch a one up victory.

Burke won her semi-final against Glenys Ferguson (Wanneroo) 3/2 in their morning match.

The 55-64 flight age group saw Helen Drake (Dorset) claim victory with a convincing 5/3 victory over Yarrambat Park member, Alma Fonda-Russell.

The duo won their morning matches 3/2 and 3/1 against Julie Daniel (Numurkah) and Sue Lush (Gardiners Run) respectively.

In the 65+ age flight, Tocumwal’s Bobette Wilkinson was crowned the champion after her 3/2 victory over Heather Harley (Kooringal).

Wilkinson had earlier defeated Flo Feltham (Buninyong) 5/3 whilst Harley was victorious over Lyn Bennett (Gosnells) on the 18th.

Golf Victoria would like to thank the Greater Shepparton City Council, Hill Top and Shepparton Golf Clubs for their tremendous support in helping make this year’s Senior Championship a great success.
