Jackie Dias wins again
The Ladies championship of the Royal Colombo Golf Club was quite a success. Superbly organized and lavishly sponsored by Woodman Lanka another combine coming under the wing of popular business personality Chandra Senanayake. Deepo Senanayake his son heads Woodman Lanka with success.

Jackie Wins
Jackie Dias is quite an exciting player. She is smart, brave and confident playing her shots and has been richly rewarded in recent match competitions. She was in peak form meeting champ of yesteryear Suweneetha Selvaratnam and showed her class with a stunning win 6 & 5. Nirmal Hettiarachchy's match refereeing was in complete command.

Danushi Shines
"Lupperty" Danushi Senadhira in her early teens was pretty impressive. New to the game she played brave shots fearlessly and successfully. The attractive kid was extremely popular at the award ceremony when she collected her bronze Trophy beating K. Remphal. 'Uncle' Willie Barsenbach refereed silently.

The championship was superbly organized. Much credit goes to Anne captain and her energetic team. The award ceremony sparkled with the presence of past celebrities Lilamani Weeraratne, Farida Markar, Mystica Flamer-Caldera, Heather 'Weather' Lourensz, Yvonne Abeyratne and a few others. Grandmother Superior Pam Fernando a much respected senior went down memory lane relaying the successes of yesteryear identifying her contributions towards the improvement of the Ladies section.

There was agreement and she was loudly applauded. Pam the chief guest distributed the main awards and Deepo Senanayake and Kamal Ratnapala gave the other awards away.

A lively party followed sponsored by Woodman Lanka. Music for jiving attracted the oldies and it was great fun watching the champs (golf and dancing) in sprightly action.

Tita Nathanielsz, President of the Royal Colombo Golf Club in a lively speech congratulated the ladies for the excellence of their organizing skills, the two winners for their smart performances and finally made a commitment that he would unstintingly support the ladies section during his period of stewardship. A superb party, hellishly fun filled came to a happy end late at night with loads of thanks to Woodman and their wonderful hospitality.
