Just a "heads up"

Just want you to know that you may be seeing less pictures here on the blog because Google has changed things so much that I can't find anything that will work consistently for posting slideshow presentations and it takes way too much room to post pictures individually. Therefore, when I send out a notice that I've updated the blog, if there are pictures to view, I'll try to include them with the email. Sorry about this, but Google is giving me fits.

SWGA/SSWGA Jingle Bell Scramble

Brrrrr.  Twenty-nine bunded-up ladies braved the cold, wet conditions and were on standby up till the last moment the night before the December 6 Jingle Bell Scramble.  There had been lots of rain and we weren't sure if it would happen or not, but these determined ladies showed up and enjoyed what is always a good time just before the rush of the Christmas holidays.
Northwood Hills Golf Club hosted the annual event and as usual, it was terrific.  The Northwood ladies even cooked the food themselves for the luncheon and it was GOOD!  The course was in great shape, especially considering the harsh weather that preceded the tournament.  Management outdid themselves to make us all feel welcome.


Ten groups of ladies competed against each other, with scores ranging from 70 to 81.  There was a whole group of 75's that had to find their place after scorecard playoffs.  When it was all counted, the first place team of Tinsley/Airhart/Engelcke shot a really great 70.  Other winners were:


SECOND PLACE:  Graves/Litton/Tatum - 73
THIRD PLACE: Gallagher/Wyche - 75
FOURTH PLACE: Pettitt/Crews/Ronda Smith - 75
FIFTH PLACE: Moore/Suzanne Patton/McCoy - 75


CTP #3 - Vicki Cella
CTP #16 - Gayle Gansfuss
CTL - Joyce Middleton


This was the last event of the 2016 season for both the SWGA and SSWGA.  The next event is the SWGA Annual Luncheon/Meeting on January 13, 2017, at Eastridge Country Club, 11:30am.

SSWGA Turkey Scramble

Another beautiful day for the SSWGA Turkey Scramble at Northwood Golf Club! Thirty-three ladies enjoyed the Northwood hospitality, course, and food on Tuesday, November 15th.

Other winners were:


THIRD PLACE - 72 Middleton/McCoy/Calhoun


FOURTH PLACE – 73 Farr/Colvin/Cheryl Smith/Stella Rice


FIFTH PLACE - 73 Fisher/Snyder/Kathy Davis (NW)/Gilley


The next (and final) event of the year is the Jingle Bell Scramble which is an SWGA/SSWGA combined event at Northwood on December 6th. Hope to see you there!

SWGA Turkey Scramble

Eighty-five degrees on November 3rd?  Yep.  It’s been awhile since we played the SWGA Turkey Scramble while wearing shorts and wishing we had brought the portable fan.
 
But twenty-eight ladies came out to participate in the 4-person Turkey Scramble at Crooked Hollow, hosted by the Broadmoor Women’s Golf Assn.  And it was a great day of fun and socializing.  As usual, John Graham made us welcome and cooked hamburgers and all the fixings for the awards luncheon.
 
Of the seven teams, six had scores in the 60’s.  The best score of the day was a 65 by team Shirley Pettitt/Gloria Utley/Kathleen McCoy/ and Kathy Davis (of Northwood). 
 

2016 SSWGA Championship

A foggy morning greeted the ladies participating in the SSWGA Championship on November 1st.  Luckily, the fog lifted shortly after teeing off and it got unseasonably warm.  As usual, the course was beautiful and the ladies were challenged by the undulating, fast greens.

After two days of stroke play, Moise Allen rose to the challenge, winning the championship with duplicate scores of 91, which also gave her Medalist honors.  In Super Senior division, Joyce Middleton won the champion trophy with scores of 94/93, which also gave her the Medalist trophy for that division.  Congratulations to both ladies for some good golfing.

Other winners:
 
FIRST FLIGHT
Low Gross: Martha Lawhorne
Low Net: Gayle Gansfuss


SECOND FLIGHT
Low Gross: Kathleen McCoy
Low Net: Grace Ireland
