Jingle Bell Scramble

 Jingle Bell....Jingle Bell....Jingle all the way!  And that's what we did today for the best Jingle Bell Scramble weather we can ever recall.  Thirty-four ladies golfed in perfect weather with fabulous fellowship and good food.

The joint effort of the SWGA and SSWGA was held December 3rd at Palmetto Country Club.  It was a bit scary for awhile, since the venue had to be changed from Northwood to Palmetto with just five days notice.  Palmetto came to our aid and fitted us into their schedule at the last moment and was able to provide a nice luncheon with very little notice.  THANK YOU PALMETTO!!!

Scores were pretty close, ranging from 66 to 73.  That 66 was shot by team Barbara Offer (BWGA), Cheryl Smith (WGAS), Hui Bordelon (FRLGA), and Vicki Cella (NHGC).  Congratulations ladies!
Please see the slideshow presentation for all the winners as well as all the players....in action.

Closest to the Pin winners were:
#3: Cathy Buckley (BWGA)
#7: Pat Rice (BWGA)
#11: Joanne McDonald (BWGA)
#14: Gayle Gansfuss (ERCC)
#17: Barbara Offer (BWGA)
Most Accurate Drive:  Pat Miller (BWGA)

The Jingle Bell Scramble was the final event of the 2013 season for both the SWGA and SSWGA.  The next event will be the annual SWGA Luncheon which will be held at Eastridge CC, on January 10, 2014, at 11:30am, with a cost of $12 for a great-sounding menu.  Please let your club rep know if you plan to attend.
