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 décor 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.
