SSWGA Playday Northwood

The make-up playday at Northwood came off without a hitch this time.  The weather even cooperated with some overcast skies.  The twenty-four ladies that participated enjoyed the course where I understand the greens have come into maturity.....just in time for the SWGA Championship in September.

Results of the SSWGA playday are posted in the right column.  The next SSWGA playday will be at Stonebridge on August 9, with a 9:00am shotgun.  That's right around the corner, so sign up now.

SWGA Playday at Stonebridge

I had big plans to be at Stonebridge for the playday today on July 19 to take pictures for the blog; however, I wasn't able to make it, so we have no pictures this time.

I am told that it was a really nice day though, with an overcast sky and groups of threesomes.  Nearly everyone finished in four hours.  Now that's a good day!  Congratulations to all the winners that are listed in the right column.

Please note that the next SWGA Playday is at Querbes on August 11 with an 8:30am shotgun.  You will need to contact your club rep by August 7th if you plan to play.  REMINDER:  If you sign up and can't make it, call Gayle Gansfuss, Events Chairman, to let her know you won't be there.  Don't call the pro shop as we often fail to get the message and the same is true many times when you send a message via another member.

LWGA State Match Play

The State Amateur Match Play Championship was played at the prestigious TPC New Orleans, home of the PGA Zurich Classic. Although this writer didn’t witness it personally, the pictures show what a beautiful course it is indeed.
Only five of our SWGA ladies were able to make the trip this year: Teri McGuire, Mary Jo Gray, Debbie Magee, Robbie Gaiennie, and Phyllis Ryan. All the ladies except Teri won their first match of the three-day tournament. That put Teri into the Consolation Bracket (which isn’t a bad thing), while the others moved into the Winners Bracket. On the second day, everyone lost her match except Mary Jo, who went on to play in the finals. However, Mary Jo lost her last match, placing second in the Third Flight. Congratulations to all our ladies.

This year’s Match Play winners were Champion Ali Lucas of Monroe, Second Place Heather Lott of Baton Rouge, and Third Place Jennifer Nguyen of Salmen. Way to go, girls!
The next Ladies State competition is the State Best Ball Championship which is being played right here at our own Shreveport Country Club on August 1-2. Entries will be accepted until July 20th, so you still have time to enter. See the article in the right column of this blog for more information and the entry form.

Thanks to Mary Jo Gray for being our photographer for this event. She captured some neat scenes. You may feel that you are seeing a lot of the same people in the pictures, but look past the people at the scenery. It’s really great. Enjoy.
