Rudgeley finds sand greens to her liking
The sand greens of Katanning Country Club proved no obstacle for rising Mount Lawley star Kirsten Rudgeley who confidently took home the 2020 Provincial Cup in Western Australia at the weekend.
Setting a course record with a 72 in her first round, Rudgeley was 13 strokes ahead of the pack after a second-round 73.
Fellow Mount Lawley member Eve Cohen and Royal Perth’s Brooke Price were second and third, respectively, in the 36-hole stroke play competition.
Speaking after the event, Brooke Price noted, "I had an awesome time going down to Katanning and putting on the sand greens.
"The sand greens were quite challenging, to say the least, but I’ve come away with new skills and experiences."
The final 18 holes were played in challenging conditions, with heavy downpours and winds gusting wildly.
Sally Carey, from the Albany Golf Club, was a frequent visitor to the podium winning the overall best nett score.
Carey had an exceptional first round of nett 64 alongside Albany teammate Dorothy Laffin.
This secured the Albany women the Eileen Dawson Shield for the best nett aggregate score from a club.
Andrea Reynolds, of Miling Golf Club, won the 2020 Adele Ludemann Trophy awarded to the best gross sand green player over 36 holes, narrowly pipping Katanning local Louise Salt on a countback.
Not to break with tradition, the Country Girls maintained their stronghold securing yet another Country vs City painting for the best five nett scores from Saturday’s round.
Royal Perth member Annie Fowler took home the coveted prize of "Donna’s Frock" which enabled $1,733 to be raised for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Golf WA was full of praise for the women of Katanning and surrounding districts, plus all those who travelled, for making the event such a success.
