Very few women welcome the news that their husbands have planned a surfing trip to the Maldives and will be gone for a couple of weeks, but Belinda Metham saw it as an opportunity. Coinciding with the start of the Golf Link Cup, Bruce’s surf trip was the perfect excuse for Belinda to get out and spend plenty of time on the fairways at Cronulla Golf Club. Belinda jumped to third on the overall leaderboard and was the leading female golfer by a massive 16,402 points after posting 34 Stableford points on Wednesday to take her tally to 66,423 Golf Link Cup points, thanks largely to the five games she was able to play in the space of eight days.

Fairways are often soggy from a rain-soaked month of June, there are fewer tee times available on a Saturday and golfers are playing less golf. And to top it off, the annual subscription fees turn up in the mail, giving members cause to consider their golf commitment at the time of the year when they are playing their least amount of golf.
