Wodonga Golf Club members have dominated the opening day of the Ladies Inland Tournament at the Commercial Golf Resort Albury.

Judy Langford fired a nine-over par round of 81 to take a two-shot lead over club-mate Maddie Peters into Thursday’s final round.

Albury pair Louise Briers and Donna Anstee sit a further shot back.

“The course is in excellent condition, and the day went really well, very smoothly,” club professional John van der Veen said.

The Open Stableford will be held on Friday, followed by the Two Person Ambrose on Saturday, with a bumper field of around 130 entries.

Sunday’s men’s 27 holes Championship will round out the event.

Boom teenager Zach Murray will defend his title, and entries are still available for the men.

The Inland Tournament kick-starts a big fortnight.

Albury will host its pro-am on December 14.

Twenty-thirteen Perth International winner Jin Jeong will join last year’s Queensland Open winner David Bransdon and Victorian PGA winner David McKenzie.
