women www.insidegolf.com.au | August 2016 39 Woolooware women top notch their golf has improved dramatically and handicaps are being reduced.” Trish said the excellent condition of the golf course also was a contributing factor. “Golf course superintendent Cameron Dunn is doing an excellent job and has brought the course up to a high standard,” she said. “ Woolooware is a challenging golf course with a slope rating of 128 for the ladies. “ The course is 5250m in length and there are lots of trees and creeks on the golf course. “One of the most challenging holes for the ladies is the 16th. It’s only 120 metres, but it’s about a 90-metre carry over the dam to a large green with a big bunker on the right.” It seems Woolooware Golf Club is a great meeting place for women golfers of all ages. “ We have a number of ladies aged between 75 and 85 who continue to play competitively,” Trish said. “ We are proud of our club and encourage and welcome any new members to come and join in the fun and sport of golf.” Next year Woolooware Golf Club will celebrate its 60th anniversary. IT’S been a wonderful few months for women’s pennant teams at Woolooware Golf Club in Sydney. In fact, we hear the champagne glasses are still chinking as the players continue celebrating their success. Woolooware Ladies Golf Club president Trish Huthwaite told Inside Golf the club was proud of its recent pennant achievements. “We won the Grade 4 Golf NSW pennant against Muirfield in a cliff-hanger. “It came down to the last game and we won by one game. “ The Bronze 1 pennant team also went down to the wire and we again won by one game against Beverly Park. Our Silver pennant side finished runners-up when they lost by a game against Bankstown and the Bronze 2 defeated Beverly Park by a single game. This is a great achievement for our club. “Each year we always compete with a sense of pride, putting on our pink shirts and representing the club. “ We have developed great friendships within the club by playing in a team and have also made many more great friendships with other competing club members. We always celebrate our wins and losses, congratulating the girls for participating. “ We have a membership of around 120 ladies and for such a small club we have had a very good pennant season. “At the end of each year, all pennant team members are invited to share in a dinner provided by the club to reward them for their participation and enthusiasm.” Trish said the secret to success was a strong camaraderie among the club’s players. “ They are keen golfers and all are great competitors,” she said. “A lot of the players take lessons from long-serving club professional Barry Bent and in the last 18 months Birthday girl Beryl celebrates centenary NArrANDErA Golf Club’s Beryl Kennedy has celebrated her 100th birthday surrounded by her family and friends. Beryl, a life member of the riverina Ladies Golf Association, has been associated with the game for over 80 years. She was thrilled to receive a card and bouquet of flowers from her friends on the association’s committee to recognise the milestone. The birthday girl shared a few of her memories with her guests like walking to and from the course every day after school as a teenager to practice, and playing golf in the rain at Albury before sitting around an open fire in the evening to talk about the day’s golf with her friends. One of her earliest memories was having to walk up the hill to the 13th green at Narrandera. “I never looked forward to that hole,” she chuckled. Narrandera has always been Beryl’s home club. She met her husband Jack at the course. He was the club’s professional when she started playing the game. As her passion for the game grew, and her skill on the course improved, their love blossomed. It wasn’t too long before he popped the question. “Any wonder I was keen on golf? He proposed to me as we were walking up the first fairway,” she said with a grin. Beryl still promotes the game as often as she can. “Golf is a great game and the friends you make are even better,” she said. She also handed out a bit of advice about her longevity for some of those golfers who have it easy these days by playing in carts. “Play more than once a week and always walk the course. If you don’t use them (legs) you’ll lose them,” she smiled.
