The Tura Beach Ladies Open attracted a quite number of Ladies last Wednesday. It is a beautiful but tricky course at the best of times but what proved difficult for the Cooma contingent was putting, with the greens rolled to react like glass, which was difficult to adjust to following playing on Cooma’s relatively slow greens. It was sad to watch balls roll off and end up down the bottom of many greens.
Cooma scores were disappointing with the only bright spot golf-wise was that Gaye Wilson won the Golden Shot on the 13th. Fortunately her ball got caught up in a gum tree and this took off all pace to roll slowly onto the green next to the flag and she sunk the birdie putt!
Despite the golf the Ladies had a great day and our thanks go to Tura Beach. The overall event was won by Silvia Donahue from Narooma with 88 gross.
There are no major events over the next week with a Men’s and Ladies Single Stableford and a 9 hole Medley Stableford played on Wednesday and a Medley
Single Stableford and a 9 hole Medley Stableford and a 9 hole Medley Stableford played on Saturday and Sunday..
