La-Di-Da Tournament

Four of us SWGA ladies escaped to Lufkin TX to play in the La-Di-Day 4-lady tournament on May 10-12 at Crown Colony Country Club. What a great experience!
The format was unlike anything we had played before. Each lady got 80% of her handicap and everyone played her own ball. Upon completing the hole, we chose the two best gross scores and added them together and also the two best net scores and added them together, and the same lady’s score could be used for both gross and net. At the end of the day, there was a total gross and total net score.

It was a very challenging course with lots of sand and water and we didn’t feel that we had played extraordinarily well; however, when we got in, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that we had scored second best gross and first best net! We were nearly speechless (except for Shirley, who is never speechless).

It rained really hard the evening after the first round. In fact, we got about 3” of rain. As we had dreaded, it was cart path only on the second day. But the good news was that the bunkers were unplayable. We didn’t play as well on the second day, but I guess no one else did either because we still ended up second in the whole field for gross and first for net. What a great surprise! We each got a huge, heavy crystal vase to take home for our efforts.

While the entry fee may have seemed a bit “pricey” to start with at $225 per person, I can guarantee you that it was well worth the money. That price included the practice round with cart, welcome dinner and party (including drinks), full hot breakfast each morning, a sit down dinner after the first round of tournament play, awards luncheon, and each person received a nice windbreaker with zip-off sleeves.

These ladies really know how to put on a tournament. You would give yourself a treat if you plan to attend next year. We hope to plan with them around our own area tournaments so that there won’t be a conflict next time. It’s only a 2 ½ hr trip from Shreveport, and well worth the drive.
