Championship winner Di Grieve with her new trophy at the Byron Bay links.

Local Di Grieve has been crowned the 2018 Byron Bay Ladies Golf Championship after the three-day tournament wrapped up last week.

Di has had a consistently good season and it was no surprise she took out the title. 

‘Despite not having the game she would have liked on the last day she managed enough to maintain her lead,’ Byron Bay Ladies Golf assistant secretary Margaret Pierce said.

The net winner was Mullumbimby resident Joan Neate, who had a close battle with former Mullumbimby member and now captain of Byron Bay, Sally Symons.

Joan won by two strokes after the three rounds.

The tournament attracted 40 players, which was a ‘pretty good turn up,’ Pierce said.
