Byron Bay Golf Club’s Ladies’ captain Marjorie Askew was the division one winner of the stroke competition played on day one of the Club’s annual ladies tournament earlier this month.

Despite COVID-19 concerns at the time 134 women from as far afield as Woollahra and Port Macquarie competed in the event.

Marjorie was followed home by Susan Tibbett (Byron Bay GC) and Jodie Rockliff (Coolangatta GC). Fumi Ushio (Byron Bay GC) came in fourth, with Heather Purtill (Grafton District GC) rounding out the top five.

On day two of the contest former Byron Bay member, Noela McCrorie, and current member Perri Young, won the 4BBB stableford event.

Sally Symons, recently crowned Byron Bay Ladies Champion, and partner Sue Charles, took out second position.
