Winner – Ros Fisher Trophy – Jan Rawling – Gosnells GC 

Thank you to everyone for your help and support throughout this pennant season. It has been a steep learning curve for me with a few hiccups along the way for which I am grateful for your understanding. The weather seemed kinder to us this year, with fewer rainy days.

A special thank you goes to all the hosting clubs and their ladies for outstanding hospitality (Pinjarra, The Vines, Mandurah, Royal Perth, Mt Lawley, and Bunbury) and Care Bags fundraising efforts in 2022.

Happy golfing for the remainder of the year.

CONSIDERATIONS FOR 2023 WABLGA PENNANT SEASON

  1. Pennant season dates through winter or alternate – look at draft fixtures for men’s and women’s pennants in Perth; consider playing very early or late in the year.  Early discussion with GolfWA regarding the tentative programming of the fixtures for the 2023 Season.
  2. The number of Clubs that will be able to field a Pennant Team for 2023 with the changes that are being implemented at Clubs relating to changes of Membership Categories.
