Golf: Helen cuts that handicap

GOING against the notion that golf is a hard game to learn, Helen Ramsey reduced her handicap by 12 shots during her first full year in the women's competition at Casino.

Ramsey was one of a number of newer players to win awards at the annual presentation dinner.

President Debbie Low said Ramsey's effort showed that new players could succeed by playing competition each week.

"Helen showed a determination and willingness to get out there and hit the ball without fear," Low said.

"We have a number of players who are new to the club and are showing the same keenness.

"We will be holding a beginners' clinic early in the New Year for women interested in taking up golf."

Low said a diversity of players had won awards this year.

"Club champion Jackie Bracki is the outstanding player with some impressive shot-making," she said.

Chris Beck was the runner-up and the 54-hole Spring Cup winner, while Linda Dean claimed the 27-hole foursomes championship.
