Carol Stuart, Emma Dorrington, Megan McPherson and Sue Minne completed the day’s winners, with Anne Telford winning nearest the pin on the 18th hole.

Carol Stuart, Cathy Shaddock and June Roberts represented Heathcote Golf Club in the Kyneton Bowl and while they were unable to bring home the trophy they played well and enjoyed the day.

Carol finished one behind the A-grade winner in a good performance. However, it is likely Carol will remember to check the ball doesn’t have a split in it and needs to be changed the next time the ball starts behaving erratically!
