SWGA/SSWGA Jingle Bell Scramble

With a gloomy weather forecast for the day, forty-one ladies turned out in spite of it to play in the annual Jingle Bell 4-lady scramble at Northwood Hills.  As it turned out, the weather was great....the best we've had for this tournament in a long, long time.....short sleeve weather in fact.
All the players brought gifts for the Toys for Tots program and during the Awards Luncheon, four really cool Marines came and collected the toys from under the beautifully decorated tree provided by the Northwood ladies.

After a few last minute changes, we ended up with eleven teams.  The scores ranged from 74 to 66.  First place honors when to Team Pettitt (pictured left to right-Judy Ferguson (STCC), Mary Gallagher (FRLGA), Susan Berry (NHGC), and Shirley Pettitt (BWGA).
Other winners were:
2nd Place shot 67:
Gloria Utley (WGAS), Sandra West (NHGC) and Bobbie Almond (PCC)
3rd Place shot 68:
Cathy Buckley (BWGA), Vicki Cella (NHGC), Grace Ireland (PCC), and Vien Wheeler (STCC)
4th Place shot 68:
Joyce Middleton (ERCC), Jeanette Bohringer (BWGA), and Melissa Brenner (NHGC)
5th Place shot 69:
Linda Heins (WGAS), Robbie Fisher (BWGA), Joanne McDonald (BWGA), and Mary Moore (FRLGA)
6th Place shot 70:
Paulette Lee (WGAS), Gayle Gansfuss (ERCC), Theresa Kruse (PCC), and Janet Sabo (NHGC)

There was actually a tie for 6th place and the team that lost the scorecard playoff was Kim Darnell, Kathleen McCoy, Phyllis Graybiel, and Alyce Wyche.

Closest to the Pin winners were Jill Litton (NHGC) and Shirley Pettitt (BWGA).
Closest to the Line winner was Judy Ferguson (STCC) just a few inches off the line.

It was great fun, fellowship, and food.  As usual, the Northwood ladies outdid themselves with homemade goodies and the awards luncheon was exceptionally great.....especially the bread pudding!!!

This completes the SWGA schedule for the year, and it has been a great one!  Our next function is the annual meeting/luncheon which will be held at Northwood in January (date to be announced).  You will receive an email notification with all the details.
