SWGA Fox Run Playday

It was hot!  The course was challenging.  It was hot!  There were lots of lost balls.  The hospitality of great.  And did I mention....it was hot!

But thirty-one ladies endured the heat, a number of whom were injured or dealing with medical treatments of some sort.  So as far as I'm concerned, everyone was a winner!!!  Thanks to Mary Moore for coordinating everything at the course and completing score cards so that no one had to do their own.

The overall low gross of the day was a 79 shot by Mary Lynn Stuart (ERCC) and the low net was a 65, by Martha Lawhorne (BWGA).   Phyllis Graybiel took low putts honors with a 28, in spite of recently aerated greens.  Good golfing, ladies.

And the results were:

FIRST FLIGHT
Low Gross: Mary Lynn Stuart (ERCC) 79
Low Net: Carmen Leach (FRLGA) 67
2nd Gross: Shirley Pettitt (BWGA) 83 (with broken foot)
2nd Net: Joyce Middleton (ERCC) 68
Low Putts: (3-way tie) Carmen Leach, Nancy Young (BWGA), Cathy Buckley (BWGA) 32

Nikki Patterson Invitational

Again today, June 26, we paid tribute to a great golfer and friend Nikki Patterson in the form of her very own Invitational tournament held at The Golf Club and Stonebridge.  A full field of 128 ladies participated in this year's tournament, in spite of some really, really hot weather. 

The course was in wonderful condition and the Stonebridge hospitality and food was outstanding.  There are always little "problems" that sprout up behind the scenes, but no one would ever know it if there were.

There was a raffle with really nice prices and all the monies went to the National Cancer Society, since Nikki was a victim of this horrible disease.

This year the committee decided to flight the teams after play, using no handicaps, so if you heard that you had a lower score than one of the winning teams, it just wasn't your day and you fell into a different flight.  You can see the leaderboard results in the slideshow presentation below.
The best score shot was an outstanding 59 by Team Edwards/McKey/Berken/Fossett, followed by a 60 and 61 for second and third place in the First Flight.  The highest score shot was 76, just four strokes over par, so it was a great golfing day for everyone.

Bayou D'Siard Golf Classic

A relentless group of ladies showed up to play in the Bayou De'Siard Ladies Golf Classic on June 19 at Monroe, after a gazillion inches of rain fell the day and evening before.  Yep, it was wet, hot, humid and cart paths only....but it was fun.  And in spite of the weather, the course was in FABULOUS condition!!!
This was a 2-lady scramble format and the Shreveport area ladies took four teams to Monroe.  Unfortunately, we only had one winning team, and that was Martha Lawhorne and Donna Cobb, both of BWGA.  Congratulations girls!
