Gilmour Rosebowl

Riverton has drawn with Greenacres 2 ½ – all to retain the Gilmour Rosebowl.

Individual results were: Anita Fraser defeated Kathryn McEwing 4/3, Debbie O’Connell lost to Julieanne Mexted 4/2, Emma McCallum beat Joanne Purdue 7/6, Vera Kerr squared with Tracey McLeod and Carly Baker lost to Carol Brown 7/6.

Riverton’s next challenge is against Riversdale.

Riversdale Farmers and Friends

The Riversdale Golf Club’s Farmers and Friends tournament will be played on August 6.
