Mooroopna Golf Club had its annual ladies presidents and captains day yesterday to officially open the new season.

Dawn Nioa is captain this year, while Brenda Broughton has taken on the president’s role.

Mooroopna Golf Club’s Sandy Millett said the event was always a special day.

‘‘We honour the past presidents’ and captains’ effort into the club,’’ Millett said.

‘‘Some of our living life members are still playing golf, but it’s a good day for them to come together because they’ve put a lot of effort into the golf club.

‘‘Mooroopna Golf Club is definitely heading in the right direction and it’s good to have days like these where we can all come together.

‘‘It’s the start of the pennant season, so everyone is really excited and looking forward to getting going again.’’

The winners on the day in the four-ball best-ball competition were Brenda Pye and Joan Scott on 45 points, while the runners-up were Glenys Leech and Louise Cross.

A social nine-hole round will take place tomorrow from 9am, with players of all levels encouraged to come along.
