PORT Fairy and Warrnambool loom as the teams to beat this Women’s Golf Western District eastern conference pennant season.
The two sides maintained their unbeaten records with victories in their round two matches at Warrnambool Golf Club yesterday.
Port Fairy defeated Cobden 4-1 to stay clear on top of the ladder. The side has dropped just one of its 10 contests this season.
The biggest wins came courtesy of Anne Dwyer, 5/4 against Carol Bennett, and Sue Holcombe, 5/4 against Fay Rundle.
Diana Robinson edged out Jo Hammond one-up while teen Joanna Flaherty upstaged the more experienced Debbie Rix 3/2. The victors’ only defeat came with Louise Cameron losing to Sherine Healey 2/1, but they had secured the points by then.
Warrnambool also has an unblemished record and is hot on the heels of Port Fairy after two rounds, trailing by a solitary contest.
Warrnambool completed a whitewash in its match against Terang, 5-0, with all contests decided before the 18th hole.
Glenda Clarke was the star, defeating Marion Venn 7/6 and Sue Wilton took the win against Aileen Clarke 6/5.
Di Howland beat Margie Driscoll 5/4, Tricia Sullivan did likewise against Leeanne Ritchie 5/4 and Alison Sinclair shaded Judy Carmody 2/1.
