20 lady golfers competed in the third round of the club championships at the Parkes Golf Club on Wednesday this week in great golfing conditions.

In the A-grade scratch, Kaye Jones and Dale Matthews hit fine 94's to lead home the field just ahead of Anita Medcalf on 96.

In the nett event, Dale had a 74 and was three strokes clear of Kaye, with a further stroke back to Kathy Jeffress.

In the B-grade Helen Clark shot the low score for all grades with a 93, four clear of Leonie Thompson and a further four strokes back to Leonie Stevenson and Colleen Flynn.

In the nett event, Helen again finished in front on 70 and again four strokes clear of Leonie.

In C-grade, Sue Holman got her game in place to record a solid 99 and finish four strokes ahead of Dawn Wakefield, with Denise Charlton a further three strokes in arrears.

In the nett event, Sue shot a day low of 68 - again beating home Dawn by three strokes.

Sue's excellent score won the Dunford's Pharmacy trophy for the day.

So, after the third round, and only one further round to go, we are very close to crowning our club champions in the three grades.

In A-grade, the scratch is being led by Anita Medcalf on 285, followed by Kaye Jones on 289 and Dale Matthews on 290.

These three ladies will likely fight out the event and Anita will need to put in a good round to keep them at bay.

In the nett event, Kathy Jeffress on 230 has been joined on that score by Dale Matthews and these two look certain to fight out the title.

In B-grade, in the scratch competition, Helen Clark will take what looks like an unassailable lead into the final round.

Helen sits on 301 and is 12 shots clear of Lyn Davison, with a further shot back to Kaye Inglis.

The nett competition has Helen out in front on 232 with Lyn on 238 and Kaye on 239, so Helen will still need to record a good score to pick up the double.

In C-grade, Sue Holman has shot to the front by a good margin of 23 shots and only by a miracle can the field reel her in, with Denise Charlton the next best on 339.

Sue also leads the nett event by seven shots, ahead of regular playing partner Judy Fisher.

This will be a close-run battle if Judy can put in a good final round.

Best of luck to all the ladies competing this Saturday, in what is forecast to be trying conditions for golf!
