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.
