Our annual Golden Girls tournament concluded today. It was once more very generously sponsored by Jenni Gault International Jewellery Design. This was a very special occassion as we commemorated the life of Alma Truss, a year after she passed away. We arranged to have our Silver Tray named after Alma Truss. Her family were invited to attend the prize giving and present the trophy for the first time. Unfortunately her daughter, Barbara, couldn't make it but her grand daughter Hayley and her husband Paul were there. Antoinette gave a very moving speech on how much Alma had contributed to ladies golf in Gauteng and South Africa. Hayley was invited to present the tray to our Golden Girl, Valda Ford of Ruimsig CC on 169 (87,82). Sheryl Matthews was the runner up on 175 (87,88)
In the B Division the winner was Lalla Alexander of Bryanston CC on 68 points (31,37) she won on a count out from Anneke Luyt also of Bryanston CC on 68 points (39,29). Nine of the twenty prize winners were from Bryanston CC. The full prizelist is attached to download.
Thanks to all the girls who competed, the tournament would not be what it is without you.
