Stevenson seals Ladies Pro-Am
Twenty nine professional female golfers were split up amongst more than 100 local amateur golfers for the fourth consecutive Ladies Pro-Am event at Coraki Golf Club on Sunday.
Teeing off in groups of four, with a professional golfer in each group, the Ladies Pro-Am provided excellent competition for local golfers and some regular amusement for the professionals. This year Tweed Heads professional Rebecca Stevenson took out the $15,000 event with a three under round of 70. Rebecca came in one shot ahead of Denmarks Mianne Bagger and two ahead of Womens World Cup representative Shani Waugh and NSW professional Karen Lunn.
On an amateur level, Olympic baseballer Matt Buckley picked up the sponsorship title with 42 points, while Brianne Malcolmson was the ladies overall winner with a score of 43. Tony Clark won the A grade amateur round with 42 points.
Despite mid-week rain the course was in immaculate condition and Coraki Golf Club spokesperson Peter Cordery had high praise for the work of green keeper Steve Kennings after the event.
