23 May 2017 – Woodlands Golf Club
The annual Don Lawrence Trophy was played at its regular venue Woodlands Golf Club. This popular 4BBB event was well attended and we thoroughly enjoyed playing in fine autumn conditions.
The field was made up of many regular faces and past winning combinations as well a number of guests.
After play Muriel Lawrence Don’s widow attended the dinner and made the presentations. Sadly this is to be Muriel’s last year of attending, as she is leaving Melbourne to live with her family in South Australia. We wish Muriel all the best for the future and appreciate the contribution she has made to the success of our event over the years.
