Back in 1989, Ronnie Ferguson initiated the Sorrento Plate as a fundraiser for junior girls’ golf on the Mornington Peninsula. The event is held annually at Sorrento Golf Club in July school holidays. The inaugural event was won by Louise McDonald, a junior from Portsea Golf Club and Marjorie Kellaway also from Portsea.
Now in 2019, the Sorrento Plate is still going strong and very well supported by women of the GPV district. Today’s conditions were very challenging with strong winds sweeping across the course most of the day. Fortunately, the rain was later in the day as the ladies enjoyed a delicious Sorrento lunch.
Thank you to the team at Sorrento Golf Club for their assistance and support making the event such a success.
Finally, congratulations to the winners Connie Plowright & Riona Chirnside of Sorrento with 45 points and runners-up Ronnie Ferguson & Ginny Reid of Sorrento with 42 points.
