SWGA Playday at Stonebridge

Ideal weather.  Wonderful course conditions.  Great turnout.  Great socializing.

That's what forty-eight ladies had on April 22 at the Golf Club at Stonebridge during the second SWGA playday of the new golfing season.  The newly renovated bunkers are sparkling white with "fluffy" sand and a few had been filled-in with grass.  But the challenge was still there!  A great day prevailed.

Low gross score for the day was shot by Mary Lynn Stuart with a super 76! Congratulations Mary Lynn.  Low net was a 64 by Suzanne Tinsley who just got back from Napa Valley.  The wine must help a golfer play great!  The best putter of the day was Mary Gallagher with just 30 putts!

Be aware that Stonebridge was just recently re-rated so there will be new course slope coming out soon.  What used to be the red tees are now the green tees which have been rated for men also.  The silver tees are rated for men and women and really only vary from the green tees on four or five holes.  These changes should make golfing more enjoyable for the "age challenged" golfer.

The next SWGA playday was originally scheduled at Northwood on May 20th; however, due to management issues at the course, the venue has changed to Crooked Hollow with the same 9:00am shotgun.
