SSWGA Turkey Shoot

The final official SSWGA event of 2011 was the annual meeting and Turkey Shoot hosted at Southern Trace on November 15.  Thirty-four ladies participated this year and enjoyed a beautiful Fall day with colorful foliage to enhance the event.  The event also was the stage for electing new officers for 2012.

Scoring in this event was very close, with scores ranging from 68 to 73.  The first three places all scored 68, so a scorecard playoff determined the winners.  Fourth place team shot a 69.

The first place team was the 3-lady team of Teri McGuire (WGAS), Susan Berry (NHGC), and Linda Christiansen (NHGC).

Second place: Shirley Pettitt (BWGA), Pat Miller (BWGA), Jeanette Bohringer (BWGA), and Becky Farr (WGAS)

Third Place: Kim Darnell (WGAS), Robbie Fisher (BWGA), Theresa Kruse (PCC), and Pat Rice (BWGA).

Fourth Place: Mary Coker (STCC), Vickie Cella (NHGC), Donna Phillips (STCC), and Alyce Wyche (PCC).

Also announced during this annual meeting were the end-of-year special award winners.  Only one member participated in 100% of the SSWGA events:  Meg Welch (BWGA).  Four other ladies achieved 80% participation:  Mary Coker (STCC), Pat Miller and Pat Rice (BWGA), and Marge Snyder (NHGC).

Average low gross for the year went to Mary Coker with a 90.7; average low net of 74.2 went to Pat Miller; and average low putts of 33.4 went to Marge Snyder.  Congratulations to everyone!!!

The next event in concert with the SWGA group is the annual Jingle Bell Scramble which will be held on December 1st at Northwood.  Sign up with your local Club Rep.

SWGA Turkey Shoot

Palmetto Ladies Golf Assn. hosted the annual Turkey Shoot on November 10th....on the first day of a new cold front that breezed through the area. Forty-nine ladies braved the cold temps to play the 4-lady scramble amidst beautiful Fall foliage on the course.

The first place team ran away with the title, shooting a whopping 61! Congratulations to Mary Jo Gray (WGAS), Jill Litton (NHGC), Sue Ford (ERCC), Grace Ireland (PCC), and Dot Henson (WGAS). Yes, this team had five members, but two of the ladies took turns hitting so that only four actually played each shot. And yes, all five of them hit from the tee on the closest to the pin holes so that everyone would have a chance at that award.

The next three winning teams all shot 68, so the winners were determined by a scorecard playoff and they ended up in this order:

2nd Place: Robbie Fisher (BWGA), Frances Boyter (STCC), Mary Gallagher (FRLGA), and Cathy Morgan (PCC).

3rd Place: Tina Essler (BWGA), Donna Ihle (WGAS), Jeanette Bohringer (BWGA) and Cathy Buckley (BWGA).

4th Place: Teri McGuire (WGAS), Pat Miller (BWGA), Sara Lowdermilk (STCC) and Sharon Anderson (ERCC)

Closest to the Pin: Mary Jo Gray, Jimmie Zey (PCC), and Sue Ford.

Although these ladies were Closest to the Pin Winners, we had one player who got closer than everyone....with her hole-in-one, but it wasn't one of the C-T-P designated holes! Paulette Lee holed her shot on Hole #14, resulting in her FIRST hole-in-one. Congratulations Paulette!
