Kerry Lollback and Joan Neate will have their names added to the Byron Bay Ladies Foursomes Champions board after winning the 27-hole championship held at Byron Bay golf Club.

Kerry lives in Byron Bay and only started playing golf six years ago, she has been the net winner with Carol Wells as her partner, but this was the first time she has succeeded in having the best gross score on the day and getting her name on the honour board.

Mullumbimby’s Joan has an enviable background having won the Foursomes Championship in Darwin once, been the B-grade gross winner twice in Darwin, once at Ocean Shores and once at Mullumbimby. But again it the first time she has been the Club Champion at Byron Bay.

They won with a score of 148.

Both ladies were stunned and amazed to find themselves the winners after playing the first nine holes very well, but the other 18 holes were ‘ordinary but steady,’ Joan said.

Runners up, Sue Charles and Alex Thomas, were only one shot behind the leaders.

Net winners were Pippa Crane and Perri Young with 117, while Stella Hetherington and Marcia Kelly were runners up.
