The 2019 Canterbury Women's Champion of Champions and the district final for the NZ Gross Stableford Rosebowl was held yesterday at Coringa. The course was presented in excellent condition with some short but challenging rough that caught the offline shots. Morning conditions were calm and warm, producing many good scores, but the afternoon wind, heat and difficult gross stableford format caused some form reversals.
At the end of the Champions event, Anika Park of Russley and Olive Tapu of Christchurch were all tied up with 154 gross total for the 36 holes. In a sudden death play-off on the first hole Anika won the Champions title for 2019. Anika also won the Longest Drive trophy.
The Gross Stableford Rosebowl competed by club teams comprising Silver and Bronze Champions and Bronze Champion Runners-up, was comprehensively won by Russley with an aggregate 36 hole score of 122. The team was Anika Park (66), June Park (36) and Mary-Anne Williamson (20). Waitikiri came in second place on 104 and Harewood third on 101.
The Hagley Trophy for the Champions 36 hole net was won by Judy Smith from McLeans Island (picured left) with a total score of 153.
The Pat Renell Salver for the Bronze division pair with the highest aggregate gross stableford was jointly won by Lincoln's Heather Templeton and Jan Latham and Russley's June Park and Mary-Anne Williamson both with a combined 56 points.
On her home course, Myra Story of Coringa (pictured right) won the 9 Hole Champions Trophy with a gross 50.
