Anniversary Golf Day - Friday 27th May
25th Anniversary Golf Day Winners
A really excellent day to celebrate 25 years at Chesfield Downs Golf Club. Followed by an amazing display of golf prowess by Trick Shot golfer, Kevin Carpenter.

Many ex Captains, staff and all our golf pros were there to celebrate and to take part in the fabulous farewell to our Course Manager, Ed O'Hanlan.

First place went to the Ladies Captain and Vice Captain with husbands - Kathy & John Dale and Jackie & Richard Reid with 79 points. Very closely followed with 78 points by another Ladies Section team Amanda Macknight, Marica Kelland, Julie Price and Angela Hamilton. Plus Nearest the Pin on the 3rd was won by Jean Ray. We scooped the prizes today!!

Round 2 of the weekend Eclectic took place. Updated results can be seen on the HowDidIDo website. Pat Ward is currently ahead with a gross 82. With the rest of the field chasing her lead.

Double points if you tee off the Yellows. A tactical game. Angela Chatterton obviously had a good strategy as she scored an enormous 58 stableford points to take 1st place. Congratulations Angela and a brilliant par from the yellows on the 18th!

More good scores for 2nd place. With 54 points, Hazel Brunnen came in 2nd just beating Brigid Kerr into 3rd place on countback.

The Ping Pairs qualifying round was played at Chesfield this week. The winners are entered into the National Final events on either 5th or 6th September. Top 50 scores nationally will enter the Ping Grand Final on 6th September and the next 50 top scores will play in the Ping Plate Final on 5th September. Our excellent winners with an incredible 44 points are Rogie Taylor and Kathy Morris. Just beaten into 2nd place on countback, also with 44 points, are Margaret Fredjohn and Barbara Baldwin.
