Squire Creek Invitational

Squire Creek Country Club hosted its Ladies Invitational today at Choudrant, LA.  The unseasonably warm weather didn't deter the twelve teams that represented our Northwest area.  In fact, our ladies represented over one-third of the field!  And of those twelve teams, we had five winning teams!!  I understand that the course was absolutely impeccable in spite of the drought.  Congratulations to all!


FIRST FLIGHT:
2nd Net:  Lillian Granger/ Lisa Russell - 69

SECOND FLIGHT:
1st Gross: Moise Allen/Anne Ridley  - 71
2nd Net: Gloria Utley/Suzanne Tinsley - 76

SSWGA Playday Crooked Hollow

We finally got some rain this week, which made the temps very nice for our SSWGA Playday at Crooked Hollow.  It made it a little wet and muddy too, but we're not complaining.  We needed the rain so bad.  Twenty-one ladies played the event on Monday, September 19th, and there were some very good scores posted.  As usual John Graham and his staff made us all feel welcome and met all our golfing needs.

The low score of the day was had by Marge Snyder (she's making this a HABIT) with her great score of 80!  And Martha Lawhorne showed off with her great score of 85!  Good golfing gals!

2011 SWGA Championship

The 78th Annual SWGA Championship is now a part of history.  Teri McGuire of StoneBridge Country Club made her mark on this one by winning the Championship with her scores of 78 and 84.  That 78 also won her the Medalist honors for the first day. 

The Overall Net Champion was Robbie Fisher, a new member this year, shooting net scores of 66 and 68 and earning her the Net Medalist Trophy in addition.

Thirty-three ladies participated in the two-day event at Northwood Hills Golf Club, which undertook a tremendous re-vamping during the year with no help from Mother Nature.  But the course played well with greens that ran very true.  Although the first day was a recording breaking 105 degrees, the second day was a gorgeous, cool golfing day, and fun was had by all, especially Marge Snyder who posted a 78 on the second day and Jill Litton with an 80.  That cool weather made for some cool scores!

Team Matches


BLUE vs GREEN!

This is most of last year's winning team:  Stonebridge, Palmetto and Fox Run ladies took home the trophy.  Now it's time for them to attempt to retain the trophy!  Blue Team was ahead of the Green Team by only two points going into the second day, but ended up winning 15-10.  A great win!

Shreveport Country Club will again host the event this year on October 18th and 20th.  The first day is best ball and the second is a scramble.  It's alot of fun and great competition.  If you can and will play, please contact your Club Rep by October 4th so we can put the teams together. 

This is most of the team that didn't win, even though we were all winners....just because we played!

SWGA Northwood Playday

The Northwood Golf Club ladies hosted this month's playday on September 8th. In addition to the playday, it also served as the practice round for the SWGA Championship to be held at Northwood on September 13 and 15.

Thirty ladies enjoyed the Northwood hospitality on the recently rejuvenated course in picture-perfect weather. The course benefited from the recent rain and has greened-up nicely. The greens were in great shape, with putts running very true at a nice pace.

The low score for the day was had by Northwood's own Marge Snyder with her nice 81. The overall low net was 67 by Broadmoor's Kyong Lee who also had the overall low putt total of 28 for the day.

It was a great day of golf and next week's Championship is sure to be even better. If you haven't already signed up, do so by Sunday, September 11 by contacting Jill Litton.
