SWGA Playday at Huntington Park (BWGA)

Wow!  Hot was the word of the day for the twenty-eight ladies who came out to play the SSWGA Playday at Huntington Park.  I'm sure that for those of you who haven't played the course since it was re-done, it was a big surprise.  It's waaaay shorter than it used to be.  And the greens are very very receptive.

Mary Lynn Stuart (ERCC) must have really liked it, as she shot a super 75!!!  The next closest gross score was 83 by Cathy Buckley (BWGA).  The low net for the day was 65 by Hui Bordelon (FRLGA) followed by a 66 by Jane Smith (WGAS).  Putts ranged from 30 to 39.  There was a tie for low putts of 30 between Suzanne Patton (NHGC) and Jane Smith (WGAS).  Congratulations ladies!!!

SWGA Playday at Northwood Hills

The Northwood Hills ladies hosted this month's SWGA playday on a beautiful (but hot) day. As usual, the ladies and the staff were great hosts for the event, as twenty-nine SWGA members converged on the course in spite of the heat. Northwood is the BEST when it comes to feeding their guests, with tons of homemade goodies to greet everyone. Thanks NHLGA!

The low score of the day was a mighty nice 81 by Cathy Buckley (BWGA). She also had the overall lowest putts for the day with just 27! Now that's some putting! The overall low net for the day day was Melissa Brenner (NHGC) with a really nice 63. Congratulations ladies! You can view all the scores in one of the photos below.
