Enjoying the sunshine

ROS Williams was among those celebrating after a hard-fought day of Ballina Women's Golf action.

Williams was the Division One winner of yesterday's single stableford competition with a score of 38 points.

It was a narrow win, with Jane Dell and Anne Jackson taking second and third sports on a countback after finishing on the same score.

Leonie Gates edged out Ginny Langham on a countback to take the Division Two title.

Both players finished on 39 points, with Rose Bates third on 36.

Some accomplished play saw Betty Ellem take the Division Three crown with a score of 38.

Marlene Leggo (35) was runner-up, with Marg Richardson third on 34.

Vice-president Margaret Hamilton said the event had been an entertaining contest. "I think most of the players enjoyed themselves," she said.

"It was very closely fought and there were some good scores, considering it is early in the season.

"The course played excellently and I think most people were happy with their game."

The event attracted almost 100 players.
