2019 Lexus of Brighton Ladies Day Out - Yarra Yarra Golf Club
The Lexus of Brighton Ladies Day Out is always a highlight of the Lexus golf calendar. A record sixty seven ladies joined us at Yarra Yarra Golf Club in either the 9 hole golf event or the golf lessons and from what we saw, everyone had a great time.
The weather didn't really play its part however, with rain during the briefing and then 15 minutes into the event thunder and lightening forced the groups off the course. Luckily it didn't take long for the storm to pass over and a decision was made to reduce the event by one hole to an eight hole event. Scoring was extremely close, with the six teams finishing within two shots of the winning score. In fact, the runners up and third placed teams had to be separated by count back. The unlucky third placed team were Anita Smith, Linda Sheehan, Jan Wheeler & Margaret Wood, who finished with nett 29.9375. The second place team not only had the same nett score, but they also had the same gross score and it was only their slightly better final holes that got them the runners up prize. Well done to Sue Simon, Deb Clarke, May Barry & Marion Thorstenson who also finished with nett 29.9375. Our winning team had a great handicap combination for an Ambrose event and in the end they were clear winners with nett 29 after a gross score of 36. Congratulations to Cherrly Houben (17), Anna Puchalski (26), Carol Farman (33) & Diane Segall (33).

Kim Fletcher was also on hand for the lunch and many ladies took the opportunity to try on some fascinators.
