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).
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.
