Twice as Nice Tournament
Texarkana Country Club was the site of the Annual Twice as Nice 2-lady tournament on September 10 & 11. This is one of those tournaments that you get so much “bang for your buck” that you just MUST go again next year….and take another couple! It includes a welcome party with food, full breakfast and lunches both days, and lots of door prizes.
Low two-day gross score for the tournament was a nice 147 shot by Pat Park and Darlene Collins. Congratulations, ladies!
Day One is a best ball with full handicap and Day Two is a scramble. Between those two days, after play on the first day, there is an optional “shootout” which is tons of fun. The Shreveport area ladies took two of the shootout winning spots: Debbie Magee and Kim Darnell won second place in the First Flight and Shirley Pettitt and Dot Barron won second place in the Second Flight. Great “shooting” girls!
The weather and the course were absolutely beautiful for the seventy-eight participants. With a large chance of rain on the second day, we managed to escape with just a few light and short showers.
Our Shreveport area ladies accounted for seven teams in the competition, and of those seven, four teams placed. In the first flight, Kitty Smith and Kathryn Snell won 2nd Low Gross with scores of 90/72. In the second flight, Beverly Knapp and Kathleen McCoy won Low Gross with their 84/74 scores, followed by 2nd Low Gross Winners Vicki Cella and Suzanne Patton with 90/75. Third flight, Low Gross winners were Marge Snyder and Jill Litton with scores of 90/84.
In addition to the flight winners, Vicki Cella also won the Longest Drive honors over 38 other ladies in the 2nd and 3rd flights. Congrats, Miss Long Hitter!
