Sybil Green/Shand Cup 2023


Over the weekend of Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th October the Sybil Green Salver & Shand Cup Quadrangulars took place down at Castlecliff Golf Club.

The Sybil Green team consisting of Kayla Van De Ven, Tessa Jane McDonald, Janie Field, Clare Choi, Devon Henare, Ruby Jarvis, Vicky Turley & Irina Vlasov were looking to defend their Judy Pearson Trophy against Manawatu/Wanganui as well as looking to win the Sybil Green for 2023.

Saturday saw the team playing their Judy Pearson match against Manawtu/Wanganui in the morning. The team got off and running with a 6-2 win to defend their Judy Pearson Salver and put them in a great position in the standings going into the afternoon. Round 2 in the afternoon saw the team solidify their position atop the leaderboard with a solid 5.5-2.5 win against Taranaki. Manawatu/Wanganui meanwhile gave the team a helping hand by beating Wellington 5-3. This setup a showdown in the last round on Sunday between us and Wellington to see who would lift the trophy for 2023 with either a win or a half being good enough to take the trophy on a countback. After a hard fought battle against Wellington the teams came to a 4-4 draw which was a good enough results to take away the trophy.
