Golden Putter winner Frances Mark.

36 Hole Foursomes Championship winners Heather Long and Robyn Downs.

The second round of the Foursomes Championship, sponsored by Shoppers Delight of Tatura, was played in perfect golfing weather with not much run on the course due to recent rains.

The winners of the day were Terri Wangeman and Liz Mulcahy with 74 nett.

Runners-up were Deb Reilly and Wilma Saunders, scoring 75.5 nett.

Ball winners were Heather Long/Robyn Downs 77, and Judy Baker/Karen Ballantyne 77.5 nett.

Nearest-the-pins went to Deb Reilly on the third (Gallery Café) and Roylyn Harris on the 14th (ONE4ONE Café).

36 Hole Foursomes Championship

Heather Long and Robyn Downs played well in the two rounds to win the Scratch and Nett trophies. Scratch score of 186 strokes and 148 nett — a great achievement.

Sheryl Curran and Sue Turnbull were the front-runners in the first round, but were unable to keep up their momentum in the second round and were beaten for the nett trophy by two strokes.

Golden Putter competition

Much anticipation was felt as players tried to hole the putt that would give them the sought-after prize which had been building for many weeks.

Frances Mark, playing her first game of golf since returning from holidays, lined up and putted a long straight ball into the hole — a happy Frances was presented with her prize.

Hill Top girls travelled to Rochester last week to compete in their bowl.

Karen Ballantyne won B-grade with 38 points, while a fellow golfer filling in for an opposition team scored 36 points to be runner-up in B-grade.

The Hill Top team consisting of Karen Ballantyne, Sue Turnbull and Di Day were unfortunately beaten by two points for the actual bowl — congratulations girls on a great effort.
