Red Hot Chili Pepper

The Natchitoches Country Club's Red Hot Chili Pepper tournament was hosted on Monday, June 20th, with twenty-six 2-lady teams participating in the 27-hole competition. 
Twelve of our local ladies made the trip to Natchitoches, and half of them came back as winners.  Winning first place in the Championship flight was Teri McGuire and Tammy Trichell with a 27-hole total of 106.  In the First Flight, Gayle Gansfuss and Charlotte Calhoun took second place with their 125.  Bobbie Almond and Theresa Kruse tied for second place in the Second Flight, losing the scorecard playoff to win third place with a 134.  Congratulations to all you ladies who made it through a very long 27 holes of golf in the record-breaking heat.  Check out the slideshow for full scoring results and a few candids.  Thanks to Donna Cobb for being my photographer for this event.

Wacky Hackers 3-lady Tourney

Frenchmen's Bend hosted the Wacky Hackers 3-lady tournament on Thursday, June 16, in Monroe.  We had a number of Shreveport area ladies that took advantage of the great fun on this course.  Each hole had a set of instructions on how to play it, so it made for an adventurous day.  Of our group, we had one set of winners:  Donna Ihle, Paulette Lee and Dot Hensen.  Congratulations! 

I'm told that the hospitality was wonderful as was the attention to details and wonderful food.  I'm sure we can hardly wait to do it again next year.  Enjoy a few candid pics.

Bayou De Saird 2-Lady Scramble

I am so sorry to report that this reporter failed to take the memory card for the camera when we went to play the Scramble in Monroe on June 1st, so I have only three pics that were taken on a camera phone.

I wish I could paint in words what a great tournament it was.  The course is absolutely old traditional style with huge trees and bayou lining the fairways, along with an abundance of lovely white sand bunkers.

There was a full field of 72 ladies playing this year, and five of those 72 were our Shreveport area ladies:  Mary Jo Gray, Suzanne Tinsley, Donna Cobb, Shirley Pettitt, and me (Kathleen McCoy).  Playing under really gruelling conditions of around 100 degree temps, all five of our ladies were winners....not just because they finished, but because they placed in their flights.

Donna and Shirley placed second in the First Flight, scoring 70 and edging out Mary Jo and Suzanne who won third place with their 71.  My partner was Hassie Kirschenbaum from Frenchman's Bend and we tied for second place with our 78, but lost the scorecard playoff, ending up with third place in the second flight.

If you've never considered this tournament, you get lots of "bang for your buck".  The $90 per person entry fee includes the cart and practice round, a lovely dinner party at one of the ladies' homes on the bayou with unlimited drinks the night before, breakfast, awards luncheon, and door prizes for everyone who didn't win something.  Now that's alot!

Think about it for next year!
