SSWGA Playday EastRidge

On the hottest day of the year so far, the SSWGA playday was held at EastRidge CC on Thursday, May 23.  There were 30-ish ladies playing and the course was in beautiful usual.  Overall low gross score for the day was 83 by Debbie Magee, overall low net was 65 by Gayle Gansfuss, and overall low putts was a nice 29 by Cheryl Smith.
Now let's get right to the winners....
Low Gross:  Debbie Magee (WGAS) 83
Low Net: Robbie Fisher (BWGA) 68
Low Putts: Joyce Middleton (ERCC) 33
Low Gross: Donna Cobb (BWGA) 86
Low Net: Gayle Gansfuss (ERCC) 65
Low Putts:  Kathleen McCoy (BWGA) 30
Low Gross:  Grace Ireland (PCC) 94
Low Net:  Charlotte Calhoun (ERCC) 72
Low Putts:  Cheryl Smith (WGAS) 29
Chip/putt-ins:  Debbie Magee, Marge Snyder, Martha Lawhorne, Kathleen McCoy
The next SSWGA event is on June 18th at Northwood Hills Golf Club with 9:00am shotgun.

La Di Da Best Ball

I realize this is a tad bit late, but wanted to share the info in spite of that.  The La Di Da Tournament held in Lufkin, TX at Crown Colony CC is a really nice tournament that our gals starting travelling to in 2011.  This year we had two 4-lady teams that particpated.

The format is a little different in that you take the TWO best gross scores of the group as well as the TWO best net scores and these are added together for the two separate awards at the end of the tourney.
This year, Team Granger/Tinsley/Gray/Magee won 1st low net in their first flight....only ONE stroke short of taking the overall low net for the field!!!!  Too bad, because that would have gotten their names on the beautiful La Di Da trophy.  It's always great to have our local girls make their "mark" on an out of town tournament!
The other four players were Team Colvin/Zey/Snyder/McCoy and we can only say that we didn't win anything, but we got our money's worth!!!

SWGA Playday Northwood GC

This post will be fairly direct, as I was unable to attend the Northwood Playday on May 21st. But I do have the list of winners:

Low Gross: (tie) Mary Jo Gray/Teri McGuire(WGAS) 83
Low Net: Cathy Buckley (BWGA) 72
2nd Gross: Debbie Magee (WGAS) 88
2nd Net: Suzanne Tinsley (WGAS) 79
Low Putts: Debbie Magee 30

Low Gross: Joyce Middleton (ERCC) 85
Low Net: Robbie Fisher (BWGA) 67
2nd Gross: Donna Cobb (BWGA) 87
2nd Net: Jill Litton (NHGC) 74
Low Putts: Joyce Middleton 27

Low Gross: Marge Snyder (NHGC) 89
Low Net: Joan Day (FRLGA) 69
2nd Gross: Gayle Gansfuss (ERCC) 92
2nd Net: (tie) Hui Bordelon (FRLGA)/Phyllis Ryan (ERCC) 74

2nd Gross: Jeanette Bohringer (BWGA) 94
2nd Net: Donna Ihle (WGAS) 70
Low Putts: Phyllis Graybiel 28

The highlight of the day was Donna Cobb's Eagle on the Par 5 eighteenth hole.  From her great drive, she hit a 160+ yard second shot onto the green and made the putt.  Great job, Donna!

The next SWGA Playday is at Fox Run on June 6th, and because there must be a list of players entering the facility, you must sign up well in advance if you intend to play.  If you don't enter the base with a lady who has military ID, you must provide (when you sign up) your Date of Birth, last four digits of your SSN, and your Driver's License Number.  Contact your Club Rep by AT LEAST June 1st.

Southern Belle

I know how late this is, however, my camera disc broke during the tournament and I've been scrambling to try to find pictures.  Still haven't gotten the ones of all the winners, but maybe they will show up later and I can add them to the slideshow.

It was a great tournament as usual and the ladies love the format that's been used the last two years now: one day of practice and one day of tournament.  Tee gifts couldn't get any better.  This year it was Nike golf shoes that were so comfortable we wore ours on the first day of the tournament!

The putting contest was a fun event again and the winners were Robbie Fisher and Tommye Englecke, both of BWGA. 

The overall Gross winners were Kathy Davis (STCC) and Amy Johnson with a nice score of 68, while the overall low Net winners was the team of Constant/Williams with a net of 62.5.  There are pictures of the leaderboards in the slide show presentation and that will give you all the winners.

We're already looking forward to next year!
