Cambridge won the Waikato women’s championship pennants title taking out the final of five rounds at Te Awamutu Golf Club on last Sunday.
The celebrations continued after the golf with St Peter’s School student Suwanna McPhee, 15, dominating the Waikato Golf end of year awards – apart from the only category she was ineligible for, the masters’ player of the year. That went to teammate Jill Morgan.
The Cambridge team of Morgan, McPhee, Sian Stevenson and Moira Keyte beat Walton on the day to cap an all-conquering season.
Ngaruawahia beat Riverside 1 to nab second place 10 points adrift of Cambridge.
Matamata took out division two from Hamilton while Waitomo won division three ahead of Te Awamutu and Riverside.
McPhee won junior and senior golfer of the year, the Russell Grace Salver for the most wins at last year’s interprovincial championships and the Waikato women’s golfer of the year.
She also completed the pennants’ season unbeaten at number two.
McPhee, who lives in Cambridge, has been a member of the St Peter’s Golf Academy for four years.
Coach Simon Thomas said she had a great work ethic and had come on “in leaps and bounds” the past season.
Her ambition is to go to college in the United States.
