Youngster stars on golf course

In-form Apollo Bay teenager Alive Caddy will contest Golf Victoria’s Kay Mahlook Shield.

APOLLO Bay junior golfer Alice Caddy hopes to continue to hone her skills after a promising run of tournament victories.

Caddy, 16, has had a busy year, winning her second Vicky Uwland Junior Bracelet and claiming victory in the South Western District Ladies Golf Association junior championship at East Geelong in September.

The Vicki Uwland Bracelet is a four-round stableford championship for junior women golfers in the SWDLGA.

Caddy will represent the association at Golf Victoria’s Kay Mahlook Shield later this month after competing in the June Gillivour SWDLGA B Grade Championship at Barwon Valley Golf Club.

The Apollo Bay P12 College student said she was looking forward to competing at the representative tournaments.

“I definitely love it, it’s definitely a sport I would want to knuckle down and really practise at,” she said.

“I haven’t really practised or played much over the past few years as much as I’d like with school and other stuff going on.

“It’s good to get out and play every so often and do these tournaments.”

Caddy won her first Vicki Uwland Bracelet as a 12-year-old in 2009.

This year’s Kay Mahlook Shield is at Kyneton Golf Club, north of Melbourne, and involves three rounds of competition over two days.

Caddy said she was excited to play consecutive rounds of golf at the tournament.

“All the best girls in the district come to represent their district and play in this event,” she said.

“I did it a few years ago and that was good.”

Caddy said she hoped to play more regularly during summer with school commitments winding down.
