2014 Road Runner Tournament

 Another FABULOUS Road Runner!!  It must have been a “sign” when the sunrise exploded directly behind the clubhouse on the day of the tournament with chilly temps that turned into some “hot” golf scores for the eighty ladies that filled the field at this year’s tournament.  There gifts galore with everyone receiving a golf cart cover, golf club bottle opener, golf towel and balls, a beautiful ball marker necklace, and lots of good food and fun.  (And I'm probably forgetting some of the goodies.)

The practice round on Wednesday allowed everyone to get the “feel” of the course on one of the nicest golfing days of the year, followed by a welcome party, complete with good food and drinks.

Day two presented a surprise cold snap that sent players scrambling for warmer clothes, but it didn’t damper the spirits and the sweaters starting coming off after about fourteen holes. 
When it was all over and the scores were tallied, the low score of the day for the Overall Gross winners was a 70….and a tie…..between team Rolland/Middleton and team Pettitt/Cobb.  Debbie Rolland and Joyce Middleton, both of Eastridge, took the honors, while Shirley Pettitt and Donna Cobb, of Shreveport CC, got the Low Gross spot in the First Flight.

The Overall Low Net score of the tournament was a 61, coming out of the Fourth Flight, with Judy Pratt and Theowne Gibbons, of Southern Trace, winning that title.

Prizes this year were special Road Runner “dollars” that were spent with the numerous vendors on hand at the Road Runner Mall with gifts ranging from d├ęcor items to jewelry to pajamas.  It was a female’s dream.

As usual, the course was in wonderful condition and the personnel were great hosts.  We all want to thank Evelyn Foret and her committee for an outstanding tournament.  And a special thanks to Kevin for helping us get those shots over the ditch on Hole #10.  He actually holed shots for four lucky teams for an eagle.

The slideshow presentation pretty much tells the story of the tournament, so take a look at all the happenings.

SSWGA Championship and Practice Round

After some really doubtful weather forecasts, the 2014 SSWGA Championship turned into one of the best two days of golf all season with wonderful sunny and cool temps.  And in spite of tons of rain, Shreveport Country Club was in great shape and we were able to DRIVE our carts on the course.

Unfortunately, there were only eighteen ladies who took advantage of the beautiful conditions, but when the scores were computed, Debbie Magee brought her practice round scores to the course for the Championship and won both the Day One Medalist and the Championship with scores of 86 and 84.  This win came on the back of Debbie’s win at her own Club Championship a few days earlier at Stonebridge.  When you’re HOT….you’re HOT!  Congratulations Debbie!
Chasing Debbie after day one with just a one-stroke deficit was Donna Cobb (SCC) who ended up winning 1st Gross in the Championship Flight, Overall Low putts with only 57, and also had the lowest net score of the tournament with a 142.  Good golfing, Donna!

The SSWGA Playday/Practice round for the Championship was held at Shreveport Country Club on October 8th, with nineteen ladies participating.  The weather and the course were great for the occasion.  It’s just sad that there were so few who took advantage of the great day of golf.

Delta Downs Lady Luck Charity Tournament

Delta Downs Lady Luck Charity Tournament was held at Rayburn Country Golf Club near Jasper, TX on October 11-13.  This 2-lady tournament was scheduled to be a best-ball on day one and a scramble on day two.  However, the weather did not cooperate and the tournament was changed to a scramble on day one, hoping to speed up play and get the round completed in spite of the large chance of rain.  After two days, we were able to complete one round of golf, in and out of the raindrops and lightening.

It sounds rather depressing, but the tournament was a very good tournament with lots of big door prizes, great award prizes, and food supplied for almost every meal while there.  One night included a guitarist/singer on the back patio to entertain us all as well as a Texas Hold ‘Em tournament.

There were raffle opportunities for lots of free golf and goodies all over a 200-mile radius.  And the purpose of the tournament was to raise money for charity, which it did.  The Humane Society, the Jasper Fire Department, and CASA received a total of about $10,000 in donations which were raised with the help of the main sponsor….Delta Downs at Vinton, LA.
We had two teams that made the short trip to Rayburn Country and both teams came back as winners.  Vicki Cella and Kathleen McCoy won 2nd Low Net in the First Flight while Donna Cobb and Martha Lawhorne won 1st Gross in the Second Flight.  We highly recommend this tournament as there is lots of “bang for your buck” with this entry fee and the on-site lodging is super-reasonable.
