Heart of Hope Classic Tournament
The Heart of Hope Classic Tournament was Monday, September 22, at Southern Trace Country Club. The HOH generously donated one team spot to the Shreveport Women’s Golf Association in an effort to get more ladies involved in its efforts with the home for girls who have to deal with a decision of whether or not to keep their baby or place it for adoption.
The SWGA went through a process of using "tickets" for ladies who had participated in SWGA events all through the year AND sold tickets for extra chances to win a spot on the team. When the tickets were drawn at the SWGA Championship, the final team consisted of Kathy Davis (STCC), Shirley Pettitt (SCC), Kathleen McCoy (SCC), and Martha Lawhorne (SCC).
Playing in the morning round of the tournament, these ladies shot a 61 in the scramble format and tied for first place in their flight, losing the scorecard playoff to get second place.
But everyone was a winner at this tournament, going home with bags of really nice “goodies” and a tummy full of really good food that was supplied all along the course route.
This is truly a great tournament for a great cause and we thank the Heart of Hope group for introducing our group to this charity. The home is located in Keithville and can house up to eight girls who don’t just “live” there…..they learn and earn skills that will be helpful in their mothering experience. If you have baby clothes, maternity clothes, or other baby-oriented items that you would like to donate, the Heart of Hope would be most appreciative.
