Lady Captains prize 2015




Lady Captain Patricia Doheny hosted her prize over two days golf that were remarkable. The first day’s golf saw two clear leaders in Loretta Mansfield and Susan Boland, shooting scores in the low 60’s, followed hot on their heels by Maureen Norton with a score of 69. With more scoring in the 70’s the scene was set for Saturday’s final to be a highly charged effort to catch the leaders and see if the leaders could hold steady. Having received reduction in handicap and exceptional performance adjustments to their handicaps, Loretta Mansfield and Susan Boland had to perform remarkably well again if they were to feature. All waited with bated breath to watch the final grouping of Loretta Mansfield, Susan Boland and Maureen Norton come to the 18th. Maureen Norton sank a significantly long putt which turned out to be the winning putt, inching her into the lead by one shot. All the top prizes were secured by the ladies in the final grouping, after another terrific round of golf by the three leaders. Lady Captain Patricia Doheny, who is in her second term of Captaincy for the club, was highly commended by all the players for her ever enthusiastic support and encouragement for players, incoming new members and her unstinting affirmation of the club.
