5th Annual Barbara Fay White Cup

"You've got to get to the stage in life where going for it is more important than winning or losing."  Arthur Ashe

And that is exactly what fifty-two ladies did on October 22 and 24 at the 5th Annual Barbara Fay White Cup Team Matches competition held at Palmetto Country Club.

With really cool temps at tee off times, both days turned into beautiful, picture-perfect golfing days for the twenty-four two-lady teams.

As a tribute to the several ladies in our clubs that have battled/are battling cancer, all the ladies wore pink headgear.  Our hearts and prayers go out to those special ladies not only in our golfing group, but all over the world, who are going through this dreaded experience and are conquering or have survived it.

The format of the tournament was a two-lady scramble on both days, with the East (Blue) team vs the West (Green) team.  Each two-lady team was handicapped, but the teams were so closely matched that handicap never came into play in determining the winner of any match.
After Day 1, the teams were tied 6 to 6 and Day 2 was just as tightly played.  But when all was said and done, the West Team won 6 1/2 points on Day 2 while the East Team won only 5 1/2 points, for a grand total of 12 1/2 points to 11 1/2 points.  NOW THAT'S CLOSE!  The West Team retained its title from last year, totaling three wins in the five competitions of the BFW Cup Championships.

It was a great two-day event and we're already looking forward to next year.  Time and place will be determined after the first of the year.

LWGA State Senior Championship

Beautiful Bayou DeSiard Country Club was the site of the 2013 State Senior Championship.  Unfortunately, only forty-seven ladies participated in this event that had absolutely beautiful weather.  Mornings were a bit chilly, but it soon warmed up to perfect.
Seven of our local ladies made the trip to Monroe and played in the two-day event on October 7 and 8.  Two of our seven came back as award winners:  Mary Lynn Stuart won 3rd Gross in the first flight and Donna Cobb won 1st Gross in the second flight.  But everyone was a winner, because we had a GRAND time!

Next year's Senior Championship will be held in Kenner, LA, just northwest of New Orleans, at the Chateau Country Club on March 16-18, 2014.  If you are 50+ years young, then you are eligible to play in this stroke play event.
