Palmetto Classic

The 2013 Palmetto Classic is now in the history book of past events.  The two-day event (best ball and scramble) was hosted by Palmetto Country Club in Benton on April 17-18.  Thirty-nine two-lady teams participated in the really fun event, in spite of having to stop the tournament on the second day about 6 holes short of completion due to torrential rains.

While in what started as a rain delay, raffle/door prizes were awarded with the fabulous pearl necklace and bracelet set going to Palmetto's own Grace Ireland!!!  All the prizes were super nice and everyone was well pleased with their gifts.

As usual, Chef Danny made the tournament special with his wonderful food items reminescent of the 60's and 70's, including tie dyed pound cake! 

After a little manipulating of holes to be used for scoring within each flight, the winners were awarded with nice Vera Bradley bags and Footjoy shoes.  For a full view of the leaderboards and winners, take a look at the slideshow.

Water Hazards

In light of the problem encountered by Tiger Woods with his drop after going into the water, I thought it would be a good time to review information on how to take a drop when you go into a regular or lateral water hazard.  This is a very simple and easy to understand demonstration put out by USGA.  Click here for the video and turn up your sound.

Nikki Patterson Invitational

It's time fo register for the Annual Nikki Patterson Invitational hosted at the StoneBridge Country Club.  This is a 4-lady scramble held on June 26 with an 8:30am shotgun start.  The practice round is June 25 with a 2:00pm Wine and Cheese Social.  The entry fee is $85 per person and includes a continental breakfast on tournament day as well as the awards luncheon.

"Run or Dye"

There’s an epidemic sweeping the country.  And only we can stop it.

Everywhere you look, people are bored, sluggish, tired, uninspired. They’re spending more time in front of the TV and less time actually living.  You might say they’re living life in black and white, stuck in monochrome monotony.

We need to look at living life in full color, in a technicolor dream!  How can we do that?

A good start is the "Run or Dye" movement.  This is a family event using the 5k run format....but you don't have to RUN.  You just have to participate to get inspired with color!  Click here for more information on what is involved.  The Shreveport event date hasn't been announced yet, but you can still pre-register at this link:
