Geraldine Women NZ Champion of Champions 2014
The Geraldine Golf Club’s 2014 Women’s Champion of
Champions team has won the NZ Gross Stableford
Rosebowl 16 points ahead of second placegetter. The
team was Jenny Kellahan (Silver Champion), Colleen

Jenny Kellahan scored 67, Colleen Gibbs 39 and
Margaret Bolton 30 gross stableford points.
The Aorangi Champion of Champions was played at
Geraldine on 16 October 2014 and after all the
Associations throughout New Zealand had played their
competitions the winners were announced in December
and the trophy and medals were presented by the
Aorangi Golf Association president, Gavin Smith, to
the team this week.
The NZ Gross Stableford Rosebowl was first played
for in 1976 – it was then known as the Peter
Stuyvesant Rosebowl and it was won by a Geraldine
team namely Sue Hutchins and Audrey Neutze (it was
then a two person competition). Geraldine were
donated a smaller version of the trophy which is now
competed for annually in the Club.
Geraldine have won this competition three times over
the 38 years it has been played for. In 1980 they
again won – the team was: Jenny Kellahan, Marie
Parish and Hilary Slater. Geraldine is very proud of
their member, Jenny Kellahan, who has twice been
part of the winning team.
