In what seemed to be a message from the weather gods to remind them that they can’t have it their way all the time, those who competed in the Remax Ladies Open Day at the Bribie Island Golf Club recently, battled sporadic rain squalls for most of the event, resulting in the field moving slower than would have normally been expected.

Ladies Captain Lyn Ball told me that, despite the slow-moving field, most of the players did finish. ‘There was to have been a full field of 144 but thought of the rain did turn a few away and we ended up with 128 players starting on the day,’ said Lyn. ‘It was pleasing to see representatives of thirteen clubs from around the district competing on the day,’ she said. Lyn pointed out that this was the third year that Remax Bribie Island had sponsored the event. ‘We are so very grateful for their generosity,’ she told me.

At the end of the day, the gross winner for Division One was Josie Ryan from Headland Golf Club with Lesley Eggleston from Beerwah taking out Division Two and Joy Jordan from the host club being successful in Division Three. The nett winners were Dot Smith of Pelican Waters in Division One, Suzanne Fowler in Division Two and Lyn Cockerell for Division. Both Lyn and Suzanne are from the Bribie Island club.

The nett Runners Up on the day was June Wills from Pacific Harbour Golf Club in Division One, Michelle Wormwell of Beerwah for Division Two and Bridget John also from Beerwah in Division Three. Despite the rather adverse weather conditions, all who competed enjoyed the day and there is no doubt that the competition will attract a full field again next year. Remax Bribie Island was represented at the event by Cate Thomas and should be congratulated for their continued support of sport within the community.
