SSWGA Scramble at StoneBridge

The ladies of the SSWGA were rewarded with a beautiful day of golf for its scramble kicking off the 2018 season at StoneBridge Golf Club on March 16th. Twenty-eight ladies (over half of this association’s membership) played in the event and thoroughly enjoyed the golf and commradery, not to mention the benefit of everyone playing from the gray tees and getting some great “roll” on this well-drained course. Thanks to the WGAS and David Martinez and staff for all the efforts in putting this event together. And here are the results:
Our next SSWGA event is April 25th at Huntington Park Golf Course. This event will be the usual gross/net stroke play. And for those of you who haven’t played Huntington since it was re-opened with a new layout and clubhouse, the course is now LOTS shorter than it once was. In fact, it’s shorter than Querbes! Come give it a try.

New 2018 Golfing Season

The new SWGA and SSWGA golfing season is just around the corner.  We start off with an SWGA scramble at East Ridge, followed the next week with an SSWGA scramble at Stone Bridge, both with 9:00am shotgun starts. 


I hope you will take advantage of these fun events.  Remember, you must sign up ahead of time with your Club Rep in order for pairings to be made and if you MUST cancel, you MUST notify the Events Chairman of the appropriate association.  The SWGA Event Chairman is Jane Smith and the SSWGA Events Chairman is Kathleen McCoy.


As info, this blog has become very user-unfriendly for me to use for pictures, so there may be a shortage of them, especially if photos are not provided by the host clubs.  I will continue to post the playday results on this blog as well as on Facebook in the SWGA/SSWGA News Site group.  I will also try to send results via email so that those not on Facebook can see the results.
