The 1st round of the 3 week, winter gender challenge started at Yea Golf Club on Wednesday. Unfortunately for the ladies, with quite a few away, their numbers were down and the men dominated the results, albeit with some very good scores. Mick Spagnolo was the winner with an excellent 39 points from Martin Lowe on 38, Jeff Moss 33 and a number of players on 32. Vicky Butler, fresh from her Italian sojourn, was best for the women with 30 points. No-one was nearest the pin. The club was pleased to welcome new member Christine Simmons for her first round. The battle continues over the next 2 weeks culminating with a Christmas in July lunch on the 19th.
