Goulburn Valley scored a second place finish in division two of the Victorian Country Teams Championships in Melbourne.
The GV side won three of its four matches across the week on a variety of courses located in the Victorian capital’s renowned sandbelt.
Only the Colac-based Western District defeated the local women, who accounted for Ballarat, Northern and South Gippsland.
Teenage talents Jaydon Vaenuku and Steffi Vogel headlined the GV charge.
Vaenuku, 19, went undefeated through her four-match campaign, including a win against leading Ballarat player Helen Pascoe.
Vogel, 15, impressed at her maiden senior campaign, winning two matches and pushing experienced Western District golfer Debbie Rix to a 3 and 1 result.
GV team member Sandy Millett said the week proved to be a successful one.
‘‘This was our first year back in division two and it was a great effort to perform so well,’’ Millett said.
‘‘We won the three matches and the one we lost saw three contests finish on the 18th hole, so that could have gone either way.
‘‘The girls should be really proud of their achievement and we also looked great in our new yellow shirts.’’
Millett, captain Tracey Clouston, Julie Gregg and Rosalie Drill each won two matches, while Rosie Emery landed a win and a half in her campaign.
