The Byron Bay Ladies’ Golf annual two-day tournament attracted players from 20 different clubs and featured local ladies among the winners.

In the major competitions last Thursday Byron Bay member Kerry Lollback was the winner of the division-two stroke competition with a score of 76 net.

Kerry took up golf only two years ago after taking part in the club’s Give Golf a Go program in 2016 run by club professional Greg Stewart. She has steadily progressed to being an A-grade player in the local competitions and is now a regular winner.

The winner of division one last Thursday was Kim Wiblen from McLean also with 76 net.

Divisions two and three were stableford events and Helen Backwood from Grafton took the prize for division three with 34 points while division four was won by Maureen Killian, also from McLean, with 37 points.

The 4BBB event on Friday saw the Byron Bay Ladies’ captain Sally Symons and partner Sue Charles take out second prize with 46 points.

The winners, Tracy Scarrabelotti and Peg Griffiths from Kyogle, had a brilliant score of 49 points.

The tournament attracted players from clubs from as far afield as Brisbane and Grafton.
