The Otago district final of the National Teams Championship was hosted by Alexandra GC on Monday 24th of April.
Despite the awkward timing, wedged between the weekend and Anzac Day, a good field of 20 teams from Otago clubs took part in the annual fixture. The format calls for teams of four, playing as two pairs with scoring as a 4BBB nett. Both pairs scores count, as the team total, for the 18 hole fixture and the winning teams results go forward to NZ Golf for recording against the other 13 district winners.
On a perfect Autumn day, Belleknowes ran out the winners with a total of 129. Christine Oliver and Patsy Cotter set the team up with a nett 63 and Lorraine Lobb and Gwenda Colloty chimed in with 66 to cement the win. Maniototo’s team of Lauren Shaw and Diane Smith (63) paired with Natalie Blakely and Pauline Spratt (67), finished in second place, just one shot behind Belleknowes.
