2011 Nikki Invitational

Once again we are reminded of our great friendship with Nikki Patterson for whom this tournament was born. This is a great legacy to her and her family and we are all proud to be a part of it.

A full field of 32 teams (that's 128 ladies!!!) came out in the record-breaking heat to play in this oh-so-much-fun tournament. As usual, the course was beautiful and we were blessed with a nice breeze all day. The staff and Stonebridge husbands helped make the event run smoothly with no surprises.

In conjunction with the tournament there was lots of jewelry and handbags for sale at very reasonable prices, so we ladies got to do the two things we like best: golf and shop! And the tee gifts were lovely bags that were HAND-PAINTED in addition to super "blingy" watches that most ladies were wearing as they left the building. There were door prizes for everyone who didn't win because of their playing ability, so everyone was a winner.

There are pictures of all the winners in the slideshoe presentation with the exception of Rachel Grinnell (Longest Drive, Championship Flight); Cindy Reaves (Closest to the Pin, Championship Flight); and Hui Bordelon (Closest to the Pin, Second Flight). Sorry we missed those pictures.

SWGA Championship

Entry forms for the 78th Annual SWGA Championship were distributed yesterday and should be showing up at your golf club in the very near future. The Championship will be hosted this year by the Northwood Hills Golf Club Assn. on September 13 and 15. The entry fee is $50 which helps cover the awards luncheon and prizes.

The practice round for the Championship will be held on Thursday, Sept. 8, in conjunction with the SWGA Playday for Northwood. There will be a 9:00am shotgun start and with the usual $20 fee.

To sign up for the playday/practice round, contact your Club Rep no later than September 4th. Your entry form for the Championship should be received by the Championship Committee no later than September 6. Mail your entry form and fee to Jill Litton, 6204 Magnolia Woods Ave, Shreveport, LA 71107.

SWGA Playday Querbes

On Thursday, August 11, the Broadmoor ladies hosted the SWGA Playday at Querbes Park Golf Course. Thirty-two ladies participated, even with the anticipated 104 degree weather. The course was in good shape with smooth greens and really thick roughs. They must have had more rain than the rest of us. As usual, the Broadmoor ladies had lots of good food for everyone and enjoyed hosting the event.

Hopefully the slideshow presentation will work this time. I'm having problems with some of the Google apps for some reason.

2011 LWGA State Mid Am

Once again, we have a new venue for our 2011 Mid Am Tournament.  This year it will be hosted at the National Golf Club at Westlake, LA near Lake Charles.  The pictures online look wonderful and I've heard from ladies who have visited the course that it is an absolutely beautiful place to play.

The practice round/registration day is October 14th, followed by the tournament on the 15th and 16th.  I know that tournaments don't sound real exciting right now with all the heat we've had, but by October, it should be a really pleasant change.  Accommodations are very affordable, so make your reservations now.

2011 LWGA State Four Ball


For the first time this year, Shreveport Country Club hosted the LWGA State Four Ball Championship, with seventy-two brave ladies contending in well over 100 degree temps. There were sixteen of our own local ladies participating, and of those, we had twelve winners. Congratulations to all the ladies! We had only one 911 call for a heat-related problem, and that was taken care of promptly with no lingering after-affects.


The overall winners of this year's Four Ball were Marge Richters and Ashley Tonore with a two-day score of 140. Great golfing ladies! You willl find a complete list of winners in the right column of this blog. Unfortunately, I don't have pictures of all the winners at this time, but I'm hoping to get some to add to this slideshow presentation.

As usual, Cathy Campbell put on a great tournament and Shreveport Country Club was a very nice venue for a new venture. I think the greens gave everyone a real challenge, but that's what a championship is all about: CHALLENGE.

Remember that the next LWGA Tournament will be the Mid Am held in October at the National Golf Course in Westlake, LA, near Lake Charles. Entry forms are already available so don't wait to sign up.

I have also included a slideshow of candids taken during the tournament as well as pictures of the final leaderboards. Enjoy.
