Southern Belle


This year's Southern Belle, hosted by Southern Trace Country Club, will be held on May 1st, with practice round on April 30.  The $100 entry fee to the western theme "Back in the Saddle Shootout" two-lady tournament includes golf and cart for both days, lunch on practice round day as well as pool party/dinner and putting/chipping contests, continental breakfast on tournament day, and awards luncheon.  I understand that this year's tee gift is a pair of Nike golf shoes.  That's alot of bang for your buck!  For more information and entry form, Click Here.

SWGA Kicks Off Season

The 2013 golfing season has officially begun!  And it started in a big way with forty-eight ladies participating at EastRidge Country Club on March 14th.  The weather was beautiful for this opening tournament and it was a great time to catch up socially with ladies we haven't seen since last year.  Our new Events Chairperson Suzanne Tinsley did a great job and participated even after breaking her toe just three hours prior to tee off.  Now that's determination!

Crooked Hollow Couples Tournament

For those who don't already know about one of the best kept secrets around, every month from March through November, Crooked Hollow Golf Club hosts a Couples Scramble.  This is not only a really FUN tournament, but it's also such a BARGAIN. 

On the third Sunday of each month, you can play in this tournament after church with the 1:00pm shotgun, for just $20.  Nope.  It's not a typo.  It's just $20 a person.  The tournament is flighted after play, so everyone has a chance to win, even if you have a bad day.  There are three winning couples in each flight and the winnings are put on a special credit card for your use in the pro shop whenever you want to use it.  There is also a closest to the pin prize each month for men and ladies.  It's simply a fabulous deal.

The last tournament of the year in November is a two-day tournament with more prizes and good food included.  If you don't already have a golfing partner, find one and call Crooked Hollow to sign up.

Louisiana State Mid Am

The LWGA Mid Am Championship was held this year at the Farm d'Allie in Lafayette, LA.  In spite of it's close proximity to the Shreveport area, we had only two participants:  Gayle Gansfuss and Joyce Middleton, both of EastRidge Country Club.  But we managed to have a winner in the group and that was Joyce who won Low Gross in the Second Flight with scores of 90/87. 

The overall winner of the Mid Am was Kay Daniel of Slidell, taking home the honors for the eighth time!!!  Congratulations!

The next State Tournament is also nearby at Squire Creek.  The State Amateur Match Play will be played June 8-12.  Watch for more info and entry forms soon.

SSWGA Playday Stonebridge


The golfing season for the Shreveport Senior ladies kicked off on March 5th at Stonebridge with a scramble event.  Thirty-seven ladies braved the gale force winds and had a wonderful day of golf and renewing friendships.  And what a nice surprise:  not only did we have a free hamburger lunch, but our golf fees were also compliments of Stonebridge!  You can't beat that.

The ladies were divided into eight teams and the scores were very close, ranging from 65 to 70, which was very good, considering the winds.

Winners were:

FIRST PLACE with 65: 
Kathryn Salpietra (STCC), Martha Lawhorne (BWGA), Dot Henson (WGAS), Joanne McDonald (BWGA), and Tommye Engelcke (BWGA)

SECOND PLACE with 66 (scorecard playoff winner):
Debbie Magee (WGAS), Joyce Middleton (ERCC), Theresa Kruse (PCC), Mary Moore (FRLGA), and Susan Mitcham (WGAS)

THIRD PLACE with 66:
Shirley Pettitt (BWGA), Vicki Cella (NHGC), Gayle Gansfuss (ERCC), Susan Berry (NHGC), and Alyce Wyche (PCC)

FOURTH PLACE with 69 (scorecard playoff):
Mary Jo Gray (WGAS), Marge Snyder (NHGC), Grace Ireland (PCC), Barbara Offer (BWGA), and Bea Roach (NHGC)

The next SSWGA event is April 23rd at Southern Trace CC with a 9:00am shotgun start.
