October is the most serious period of golfing at Whittlesea Golf Club as we have the Club Championships during the month. Depending on the number of ladies who intend to play in the Championships the Committee decides on how many grades are contested. For the 2017 Championships it was decided to have 2 grades A and B. The Ladies Championships are run over a 3 week period for 54 holes.
We would like to thank Brad and Dale for all their long hours and hard work in getting the course in such good condition. This year we had a mixture of rainfall and warmth which made Brad and Dales's job so much harder. We appreciate everything you have done as the course looked wonderful and we all enjoyed playing on it.
The 1st week of the Championship was held on the 4th October which was also the Monthly Medal.
Liz Lewis won the day with 69 Nett (96 Gross) followed by Janine Lunny who had 75 Nett (96 Gross)
