The much awaited mixed foursomes event (otherwise known as the divorce stakes) was held over two days last weekend at Karratha Golf Club, with 26 pairs competing.

A game of stroke where each mixed pair takes turns hitting the ball from places they have never been before is a recipe for disaster for most, creating new challenges, rivalry and a lot of fun and laughter along the way.

Women had the pick of partners, and some chose to play with their husbands while others made sure they didn’t.

The winning combination was family, with mother and son team of Lorrie and Tyson Bertrand shooting 160 off the stick for the two-day event, with an 82 on Saturday followed by a 78 on Sunday.

Gross runners up with a score of 171, was the team of Patrizia Hinchcliffe and Vaughan Smith.

Nett winners with 143 points was the team of Jenni Peters and Matt Warburton.

Nett runners up, also scoring 143 but losing on the countback, was the team of Fiona Kinsman and Chef Stewart.

Best Saturday was won by Sunan Ong-Arch and KJ Medling scoring nett 73.5, with the Best Sunday going to Wayan Kusniati and Adam Ross with a nett 70. Winning the NAGA with 218 off the stick was Dot Abbott and Rob Fedorowicz.

From all reports, despite the inevitable spits and spats, all couples are still united.
