The 2019 Women’s National Club Teams District Championship was played on Friday with 26 Clubs represented in a great field of 104 competitors. Waimairi Beach Golf Club was in great order and the weather also played its part with a calm, sunny Autumn day, making ideal scoring conditions.
The results were very close with just eight shots separating the top ten teams. First place was even closer with Lincoln's Jan Latham, Judy Campbell, Lois Anderson and Liz Birdling and Russley's Robyn Cruse, Mihee Woo, Shera Kant and Denise Forbes finishing locked together on a combined team best ball net of 125 before Russley won on a countback, making it back-to-back victories for the club in the event.
Avondale finished third on 127, Rawhiti fourth on 128 with Weedons 5th on 129, pipping hosts Waimairi Beach on a countback,
A personal highlight of the day was Clearwater's Virginia Faass achieving her first hole in one with the perfect shot on No. 8.
