TORONTO— The Golf Association of Ontario’s (GAO) Women’s Four-Ball Championship took place on Sept. 21 from the Ladies’ Golf Club of Toronto. This year’s competition saw 35 teams and 70 female golfers compete for the title.
It would end up being a pair of 2015 GAO champions who would team up to win the event. Markham’s Hailey McLaughlin, 14, from the Cedar Brae Golf & Country Club, and Maple’s Alyssa DiMarcantonio, 12, from Station Creek Golf Club, shot a two-under (70) to earn the title. It caps off nice seasons for both McLaughlin and DiMarcantonio as earlier this summer, McLaughlin captured the Investors Group Ontario Bantam Girls’ Championship and DiMarcantonio won the Ontario Peewee Girls’ Championship.
Finishing second was the team of Kingston’s Diana McDonald and Hornby’s Alexandra Naumovski. The pair finished the day at even par (72).
Picking up the bronze medal was the team of London’s Sue Postian and Strathroy’s Jane Hedges-McKinnon who carded a one-over (73) round.
Two teams shared the net championship at six-under (66). McLaughlin and DiMarcantonio tied with Burlington’s Tania Clancy and Louise Desrochers.
