2019 Club Champion Di Grieve (L) with net winner Sue Charles.

Margaret Pierce

Di Grieve pulled off the trifecta last week by winning the Byron Bay women’s golf championship for the third time in a row. 

Di went into the final round with a two-stroke lead and held her nerve against a strong challenge from Liesl Roughead to win by just one stroke. Liesl fought hard to the end but just could not head off the leader.

It is the fifth time Di has been crowned champion, having won in 2009, 2010, and the last three years.

The net winner in division one was Sue Charles.

Division two gross winner was Stella Reakes with Vicki Barnes the net winner, and the third division gross was won by Perri Young with Helen Clarke the net winner.

Maureen Parker, who will celebrate her 88th birthday in October, was runner-up in the division three gross competition.
