The women of Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club are making a habit of winning the prestigious Wood Trophy, an annual district-wide competition.

The 10-member team was victorious again last week, beating teams from four other clubs in the tournament played at the Port Colborne Golf Club.

“It’s a Niagara district trophy, awarded at our annual women’s tournament, to the top team from any district golf club who have at least four players in the tournament,” said team representative Martha Cruikshank.

“The club’s four low net scores are taken to declare the winner of the trophy.”

The trophy was donated in 1966 by Anne Wood, of the Wood Manufacturing company in St. Catharines.

NOTL’s competitors this year were Barbara Ahluwalia, Lisa Allen, Sue Gagne, Patty Garriock, Ginny Green, Yolanda Henry, Marg Ketcheson, Sharron Marlow, Margot Richardson and Cruikshank.

The best net scores from NOTL were by Cruikshank, Green, Henry and Marlow, enabling the team to retain the title.

The Niagara-on-the-Lake women dominated the leaderboard as Henry won A flight low net, Cruikshank was second A flight low net, Green took B flight low net and Marlow won C flight low net.
