2013 SWGA Championship

Beautiful weather, beautiful facility, beautiful course.  What could be better?  Not one thing!  It was a great championship!
Thirty-five ladies vied for championship honors on September 25 and 26 at Southern Trace Country Club, with Mary Lynn Stuart, of EastRidge CC rising to the top on the second day to win the Championship with scores of 83 and 78.
Mary Lynn was two strokes behind the first day Medalist Lillian Granger of Southern Trace who shot a really nice 81, but came back with that outstanding 78 to edge out Lillian by just 3 strokes.  Good playing, ladies!
The Net Medalist for the first day was Suzanne Patton of Querbes with a net score of 70 which lead her right to the top for the Overall Low Net Champion with net scores of 70 and 69.  Suzanne is a rookie in SWGA and has just this year become very active in tournament play.  Congratulations Suzanne!

Chef Danny, as usual, did an outstanding job with the awards luncheon.  Just check out the picture in the slideshow!

And we send out thanks to Jimmy Granger who generously furnished the best tasting cold apples, and to Lillian Granger and Kathy Davis for their work in putting this event together.

Twice as Nice Tournament

Texarkana Country Club hosted its Twice as Nice tournament on September 11 and 12.  One hundred ladies participated in the two-day event with a best-ball format the first day and scramble the second day. 
Ten of our Shreveport area ladies made the trip north to Texarkana, AR, and six of them came back as winners.  Mary Lynn Stuart and Connie Pharis (both of ERCC) won 2nd Low Gross in the Championship Flight with their nice scores of 79/72.  In the First Flight, Debbie Magee and Kim Darnell (both of WGAS) won Low Gross with scores of 80/78.  And in the Second Flight, Donna Cobb and Martha Lawhorne (both of BWGA) won Low Gross with scores of 90/76.  Great playing, ladies!

This is truly an all-inclusive tournament.  The entry fee included a welcome party; two full, hot breakfasts; and two wonderful lunches.  For an additional $20, if you had the energy to do it, there was also a team shoot-out over four holes.  Debbie Magee and Kim Darnell made it to the third hole where they were eliminated by a chip-off.  Good going girls!

Squire Creek Invitational

One hundred ladies met at Squire Creek Country Club in Choudrant, LA, on September 12th to compete in the annual invitational.  The two-lady scramble format is always loads of fun and this one was no different. 

Ladies from our Shreveport area associations accounted for about twenty of the players, and eight of those were winners.

With the low gross score of the day, Kathy Davis (STCC) and Amy Johnson shot a really nice 65 in the Championship Flight.  In the First Flight, Lillian Granger (STCC) and Lisa Russell won low gross with their 72.  Becky Hollier and Jane Smith (both of WGAS) won 2nd Net in the Third Flight with their net score of 71.  In the Fourth Flight, Mary Moore and Mary Gallagher, (both FRLGA) won 2nd low net with a net score of 71.  And in the Fifth Flight, Pat Strother (STCC) and Tina Doggett won low net with a really great 66.  And after a bit of confusion, Judy Pratt and Susan Wright were also awarded 1st Low net in the Fifth Flight.  (Mistakes happen!)

And for a little icing on the cake, Marianne Leslie (WGAS) had a hole-in-one on Hole #12!

Congratulations, ladies!
