The Gowan Brae Golf & Country Club’s par 72 C.E. (Robby) Robinson design will again play host to the NB Ladies Four Ball on June 9, 2019. This year’s version of the event will see 24 two player teams compete for both gross and net championships.
With two the time defending champions, Kristi Roach from The Riverside Country Club and Morgan Matchett of the Miramichi Golf & Country Club and perennial contenders Sandy Comeau & Leanne Richardson of the Country Meadows Golf Club, not in the field the pre-event favorite would have to be the Gowan Brae Golf & Country Club teams of Molly MacDermaid & Kelly Maher, Kathy Grebenc & Shelagh Eddy and the 2015 NB Ladies Four Ball Champions, the Miramichi Golf & Country Club tandem of Keren Flett & Paula Napke-Flanagan.
In the net division everyone’s eyes will be on two time champions (2010, 2016) Beth Leroux of the West Hills Golf Course and her partner Judy Astle of the Old Mill Pond Golf & Country Club, while 2017 Net Champions Barbara Henderson (Fredericton Golf Club) & Elin Maher (Fredericton Golf Club) will both return with new partners and clubmates, Valarie Whyte & Heather Neilson as they both search for their second Ladies Four Ball Net title.
