Lumsden comfortably retained the Gilmour Rosebowl, beating Dipton 4-1 on Friday.
Despite the Lumsden ladies having to give away a various amount of shots per match, the home team came through for a very good victory and were, as usual, full of appreciation for their caddies.
Results: (Lumsden names first) Maureen Stewart beat Patricia Pattison 5 and 4, Liz Senior beat Shona McGregor 2 and 1, Anne Osment beat Geraldine Todd 3 and 2, Jody Drysdale beat Paddy Craig 2 and 1 and Olivia Frost lost to Helen Baird 2 and 1. The next challenge will be against Tokanui, at the end of September.
Mossburn Golf Club has achieved its third consecutive win in the Northern Southland Pennants competition, after the final round was played at Kingston recently.
Mossburn won the competition - which was played over four rounds and included eight clubs - by five shots, taking its total victories in the competition to five, with its first win dating back to 1971. According to the trophy, donated by J H Stevens, the competition has been going for more than 46 years and during that time Waikaka has won it 13 times, Dipton 10, Lumsden 6, Mossburn 5, Kingston 4, Waikaia 3 and Te Anau and Riversdale once each.
Having the last round in Kingston was said to be opportune, with the players reflecting on all of the good work George Rogers had done over the years.
