SWGA Playday at Shreveport Country Club

Playday and practice round for the 2014 SWGA Championship was played on Wednesday, August 27, at Shreveport Country Club and it couldn't have been a more beautiful day.  With low humidity and a gentle breeze that surprised us about halfway through the round, it was a downright super day to golf.

Women's Southern Golf Association Senior Championship

Are you “up” for a golf trip that’s about as close as you can get to the pro circuit?  This is it!

The Women’s Southern Golf Association (WSGA) is hosting its 29th Annual Senior Championship at Riverhill Country Club in Kerrville, Texas, right in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, October 6-8.
The WSGA consists of fifteen southern states, and the tournament moves from one area to the other from year-to-year to afford everyone an opportunity to participate.  No matter WHERE the tournament is held, it is very professionally done.  You are even ANNOUNCED at the first tee on the first day.  And there are “spotters” on the course to help find the balls and keep it moving.

To play in this stroke-play championship, you must be fifty years old and have a handicap index of 23.5 or less.  It is flighted and also includes a “Super Senior Champion” if you are seventy or over.

The course is awesome….a Byron Nelson design.  Go online and look at pictures and the scorecard.  Kerrville is west of Austin in a beautiful area of the state and in October, it should be bursting with color.  The trip is less than 7 hours from the heart of Shreveport.

The $250 entry fee includes the three days of golf for the competition and a practice round (excluding cart), dinner party the night before competition, and awards luncheon.  Click here for the entire brochure and entry information.  Be sure to check out the video presentation of the course on that site.

LWGA State 4-Ball

On August 3rd, eighty-four ladies converged on Koasati Pines Golf Resort at Kinder, LA, to compete in the LWGA State 4-Ball Championship.  The forty-two teams were divided into four flights and golfed for two days (August 4-5) in blazing hot weather.  The course was as beautiful as ever, with just enough challenges to make it tough-fun.
When the scores were tallied, the overall 4-Ball Champions were Lana Hodge and Haley Harrington with gross scores of 66 on Day 1 and 69 on Day 2.  Congratulations ladies!

The Shreveport area had six teams in the competition: Magee/Darnell, Cella/Patton, Middleton/Rolland, Gaiennie/Ryan, Pettitt/McCoy, and Cobb/Lawhorne.  Let me say that EVERYONE was a winner in the over-the-top humidity with little or no breeze!  But we did have two winning teams.

Joyce Middleton and Debbie Rolland (both ERCC) won 2nd Gross in the Third Flight with scores of 84 and 88.  In the same flight, Shirley Pettitt and Kathleen McCoy (both of SCC) won 1st Low Net with net scores of 71 and 66.  In addition, McCoy won closest to the pin on hole #3 at 21’ 8” from the hole, beating out Donna Cobb by less than two feet….and she made the birdie putt!!!!  Hoorah!

It was announced at the awards luncheon that next year’s 4-Ball will once again be played at Koasati Pines on July 27 and 28, 2015.  For all the ladies state events for next year, Click Here to go to the LWGA website.

Callaway Gift Cards

A couple years ago we had a tournament where the prizes were Callaway Gift Cards.  If you tried to use the card, you found that you couldn't purchase apparel on that site.  I've just learned that Callaway got so many complaints, they changed the site to include apparel.....still no shoes, but clothing for men and women.

I went to the site and actually used my card to make a purchase.....just to be sure it really worked......and it did.  You have to use your Callaway gift card number to get into the site, click on the "Apparel" tab at the top, and then click on the "Visit Apparel Site" tab at bottom right.  Then when you check out, you will have to input your gift card number again.  But it works. 

Just go to the website shown on the back of your card to access the site.  If it doesn't ask for your card number, you aren't at the right site.

Incidently, there are a number of clothing items in the Sale area of the site that are pretty nice bargains.
