2017 CSGA Girls Golf Day

With the expectation of continuing hot temperatures we were caught by surprise today, with a pleasant cool change for the annual CSGA Girls Golf Day.  Many of us wished we had brought a jumper with us this morning.

This year, we welcomed three sub-juniors into the junior ranks.  Congratulations to Matilda Sullings, Kasha Solomon and Amber Tilley for getting their Golf Australia handicap during 2016.  We also welcomed Sophie Bell and Alyssa Di-Campli to their second CSGA event.  Zoe Campbell-Davys travelled from Braidwood to attend the day, and Elsa Guile came along after being inspired at the Braidwood Golf Club MyGolf Program last week.  Caity Quester, an all round sportswoman, tried her hand at golf for the first time – and excelled.

The sub-juniors received three hours of coaching from Damon Welsford, PGA Professional at Federal Golf Club.  Damon’s friendly manner quickly relaxed the girls and they were soon improving their shots, and exceeding even their own expectations.

The overwhelming benefit of this day is the opportunity for the sub-juniors to partner with a junior girl golfer and play an Ambrose event in the afternoon.  Today was no different, with some amazing displays of friendship, encouragement and mutual respect.  Thank you to all those junior girls who were wonderful mentors today.  Your efforts are extremely valuable and appreciated.

The prize winners were:

Stableford Winner: Matilda Sullings 31 points

Stableford Runner-up: Rheannah Webb 28 points

Sub-junior Prize: Zoe Campbell-Davys

Ambrose winners: Meghan Farrell, Kasha Solomon, Elsa Guile

Thank you to Federal Golf Club for hosting the girls event and federal Golf Club staff for making us feel so welcome.  Damon Welsford’s expertise is highly sought after, and the CSGA appreciate the time and effort that Damon has contributed to this program.  Thank you also to our volunteer coaching assistant, Paula Anderson.

Looking forward to seeing some good golf from these girls in 2017.
