LWGA State Best Ball Championship

A new venue, Contraband Golf Club in Lake Charles was the site of this year's Best Ball Championship August 5-7.  A truly great golf course with lots to do all around the area.

A really large group of 112 ladies invaded the L'Auberge Casino and Hotel on Sunday, with a  practice round, followed by a welcome party at Mister Edwards' camp.  Surely all those ladies skipped the casino afterwards to get rested for the Monday shotgun start!

Our Shreveport/Bossier ladies made a good representation down south, taking eight teams to compete.  Unfortunately, we had only two teams that placed in the event, but all eight teams were winners!  It was hot and humid, but everyone hung in there.  However, we did have one small casualty when Debbie Roland injured her knee on the first day and had to make a trip to the Quick Care unit nearby.  She stayed around though and accompanied partner Joyce Middleton on Day 2, while Joyce played the event single-handedly.

Our winning ladies were Team Donna Cobb and Cathy Buckley who took 2nd Gross honors in the Third Flight with scores of 82 and 84.
Team Theresa Kruse and Linda tied for 2nd Net in the Fourth Flight with a net score total of 135.8, exactly the same as Team Pam Washington and Margaret Papaleo.
Taking highest honors in the First flight were Julie Harrison and Kie McNabb, shooting 62 on both days.  Great job!
