The Girls Battle it out at the Top

The two teams to do battle on the 3rd April in a rematch from last year will be the defending state champions Bega taking on the much improved team from Mollymook.

Mollymook had a hard fought win against Pambula-Merimbula winning 3.5 – 1.5 in a match that could have gone either way at the turn. Bega were successful against Moruya winning 3-2 in a close encounter.

The biggest story to come out of the semi finals was the battle between the two number ones with Kelsey Bennett from Mollymook taking on Casey cook from the Pambula-Merimbula team. This is the first time in the history of the encourage shield that the two number ones in a semi final have been females.

Both players’ handicaps were under 6.  The battle started out from the first hole with Casey taking charge and getting out to an early 2 up lead over Kelsey who was in for the fight. Both girls played some amazing golf and at the turn Casey still had the advantage.

Kelsey was then able to win four holes in a row to take the lead. Casey was trying very hard and playing very well with a much-improved short game keeping the match close.

Kelsey was able to close out the match on the 16th hole with a very calm and smart Par after a great drive and fantastic lay up shot left her in the perfect position to approach the green and have 2 putts to close out the match. This match was played in great spirit and I am sure both young ladies will go a long way in our great game.


Congratulations to Mollymook and Bega and good luck in the final.
