North East District Successful at Doris Chambers

Sanctuary Lakes Doris Winners
Barham Golf Club representatives Jeanette Weaver & Kerrie James.

The first of two Doris Chambers State Finals was played today at the Sanctuary Lakes Club in Melbourne’s west, with 146 women participants involved.

With October being Golf Month, it was fitting that club qualifiers congregated to the Metropolitan area to compete in the State Final. Each Golf Victoria affiliated club wishing to take part in the Foursomes Stableford competition plays a club qualifying round on its own course with the winners advancing to one of two finals, dependent on the clubs’ location.

Winners of the AM field were Barham pair Jeanette Weaver and Kerrie James who scored 38 foursomes stableford points. Coincidentally this was the same winning score for the AM field of the 2016 event. In second place and only 3 shots behind the winners was Val O’Neill and Maree Fitzgerald from Coleraine. Weaver and James returned the best score of the day and will have their names etched into the Doris Chambers Cup.

The PM field was won by Judy Langford and Jac Surman from Wodonga, who returned and even 36 points for their round. The winning dup were only 11-over the card for their round, and went the full 18 holes with points on each one.

Blustery wind throughout the day made scoring tough, considering the conditions scoring for all today was outstanding. Another 150 participants will now contest the second State Final which is to be played at Keysborough Golf Club next Thursday 19 October. Everyone will be trying to get their names engraved alongside Weaver and James.
