Wonthaggi claims Doris title

Keys Winners
L-R: (Wonthaggi) - Anne Walker & Leonie Bentick

The second & final Doris Chambers State Final was played today at the picturesque Keysborough GC, which was presented in wonderful condition.

The 142-strong field made up of mostly Metropolitan clubs, had to deal with the elements throughout the day as inconsistent weather made scoring difficult.  

Winners within the AM field & the overall winners of the day were the Wonthaggi duo of Anne Walker & Leonie Bentick who fired 37 stableford points within the Foursomes Stableford format. Walker & Bentick were the only pair to break the par of 36 points over the entire day, with the Yarra Yarra combination of Debra Thurlow & Jenny Cox finishing runner-up with 34 points.

The afternoon event was won by the Maffra team of Lori Murray & Kathie Kemp who fired a round of 36 points. A three-way log jam in second place between Woorayl, Cheltenham & Spring Valley on 35 points saw the Woorayl team emerge via a countback to take second place.

Golf Victoria extends sincere thanks to both host venues Sanctuary Lakes & Keysborough for the wonderful hospitality provided to all players.
