2011 SWGA Team Matches

The fourth annual Barbarba Faye White Cup (aka Team Matches) was once again a great success! Sixty SWGA Ladies participated in the two-day event that consisted of one day of Best Ball and one day of Scramble at the Shreveport Country Club.

Day one started with a big surprise when temperatures dropped nearly twenty degrees from arrival time to golfing time. The sun never showed up till the matches were finished. Clothing was swapped and loaned and cars were cleared of anything that resembled a blanket. The temp never rose above 50 degress and the wind gusted to 40mph. But the games went on.

The first day of Best Ball, October 18, pitted fourteen East (blue) teams against the West (green) teams. When all was done, it was a major victory by the Blue girls, winning 11 1/2 of the 14 possible points.

Luckily, the weather was better on Thursday with sunshine all day. But the cool weather once again favored the Blue Team who went on to win 7 1/2 more points to the Green team's 5 1/2. TOTAL: Blue-19/Green-8.

Congratuations to the Blue team for defending their title. In the four years that we've played this format, the Green team won the first two years while the Blue team has won the last two. Next year will be a tie-breaker!  Hope you participate to help your team!

2011 State Mid Am

The new venue for the State Mid Am was the National Golf Club at Westlake, LA.  This is an awesome course with sand and "sneaky" water everywhere.  It is in beautiful condition and was a true challenge to the 83 ladies who participated.  From our area, our players included Mary Jo Gray, Debbie Magee, Donna Cobb, Shirley Pettitt, Martha Lawhorne, Teri McGuire, Mary Lynn Stuart, and Kathleen McCoy.

Unfortunately we had only one winner and that was Mary Jo Gray, winning 1st Net in the First Flight with her scores of 84 and 86 (Net 71 and 73).  Congratulations Mary Jo!  And of course congratulations go out to Kay Daniel who won the Championship for the second year in a row with her scores of 74 and 75.

The LWGA always has its annual meeting during this event, and the likely venues for three of next year's events were announced:  Senior Championship at Koasati Pines Golf Resort in Kinder, LA; Match Play Championsihip at the Contraband Golf Club at the L'Auberge du Lac Casino Resort in Lake Charles; and the State Mid Am at Money Hill in Abita Springs.  Exact dates will be announced in the near future.
