Players of the Year

The top two players in the 2017 Goulburn Murray Quality Teams Player of the Year Award were our own intrepid golfers Heather Gunstone and Marg Mould. These two ladies proved that the more events you play in the better your score.

Heather was the outright winner with a score of 40 playing in 24 events. Highlights were winning the scratch and handicap trophies at the Goulburn Valley Championships, a win at the Numurkah Salver and a third in the Mooroopna Open.

In second place Marg played in 22 events for a total of 38 points. She won extra points at the Shepparton and Mooroopna Bowls and the Numurkah and Hill Top Open tournaments.

Well done!
