SSWGA Playday at EastRidge CC

Thirty energetic ladies, one beautiful golf course, and gorgeous weather.....what a wonderful mixture! That was the recipe at EastRidge Country Club on May 1st as the ERCC ladies hosted the SSWGA for the stroke play event. The course was in great condition and the ladies took advantage of it. Eighteen of the thirty ladies played in the Super Senior flight (70 years and older).

The overall low gross score of the day was an 86 by Cathy Buckley (BWGA). She also had lowest putts with just 29, helped by two chip-ins! Overall low net was a 63 by Kathy Davis (NHGC). Good golfing ladies!

REGULAR FLIGHT Low Gross: Cathy Buckley (BWGA) 86
Low Net: Kathy Davis (NHGC) 63
Low Putts: Martha Lawhorne (BWGA) 30
Chip-ins: Cathy Buckley (2), Joyce Delauder (BWGA), Martha Lawhorne, Barbara Offer (BWGA)

SSWGA Playday at Huntington Park

The Golf Club at Huntington Park hosted the SSWGA ladies association with 18 ladies participating. The course was in good shape and the staff was very helpful. This was the first stroke play event of the season and the attendance was less than we hoped for, but those that played enjoyed the golf and the fellowship.

The SSWGA has provisions for the regular senior ladies (50 and over) as well as the super senior ladies (70 and over). This year, fifty percent of the membership are super seniors, and each year, the number is growing in that category. The numbers were true in this event also.

In the regular division, the low gross score of the day was 90 by Jane Smith (WGAS), while Low Net was Daneita Adams (BWGA) with a score of 70. There was a tie for Low Putts between Martha Lawhorne (BWGA) and Cheryl Smith (WGAS) with just 34 putts.

In the Super Senior division, Joyce Middleton (ERCC) won Low Gross honors (even with a gimped knee) with a very nice 83. Low Net was a 66 by Jan Crowe (BWGA) and Low Putts of 33 by Pat (Miller) Mason (NHGC).

Our next SSWGA event is at Eastridge CC on May 1st. We are looking forward to a good turnout. If you haven't already signed up, do so immediately for this opportunity to play this very nice golf venue.

SWGA Playday at Stonebridge

The Golf Club at Stonebridge hosted the SWGA's first gross/net competition of 2018 on April 10th.  It started out mighty chilly but thanks to the bright sunshine, we all got defrosted about halfway through the round.  The forty-three ladies that participated peeled off layers of clothing as the day progressed and enjoyed a really nice day of golf and socializing after the long, winter months.

The low round of the day was 77 by Kathy Davis of Stonebridge who also shared the Low Putts honors with Becky Hollier, also of Stonebridge, stroking for putts only 27 times!

Ironically, Low Net score of the day was by Kathy Davis.....of Northwood.....with a great 65 net.  (I think I'm going to change my name to Davis!)  BUT....I did have an Eagle on hole #5 from about 100 yards out!!!

This year, there was a change in the format which does not provide for pre-flighting by handicap.  Instead, it is flighted AFTER the round based on the gross score.  You can see the scores of the entire field in the pictures below.

Congratulations to all the winners.  The next SWGA playday is May 22nd at Northwood.  Hope to see you there!

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.
