Blenkey wins Halliwell Cup

On 2 May 32 players from 7 clubs (one from Townsville!) travelled to Charlestown GC to compete in the the Halliwell Cup. Despite the rain the previous week, the course had dried out sufficiently to give the players some run. The results were close with Jill Blenkey from Newcastle Golf Club being victorious, winning the Halliwell Cup with a Nett 75. Runners up were Carol Knox from Merewether Golf Club with 76 on a countback and Evelyn Knight and Kath Kent both from Charlestown Club also with 76. The Halliwell Cup is held in memory of Betty Halliwell, Jill’s mother so it was lovely that she was able to win this year’s event. Congratulations, Jill!
