SSWGA Turkey Shoot
The final SSWGA event of the year was hosted by BWGA at Shreveport Country Club on November 19th. Due to extremely low temperatures the night before, we were delayed in teeing off due to frost on the greens; therefore the Turkey Scramble became a 9-hole Turkey Scramble with 24 ladies participating. It ended up being a beautiful day, concluding with the SSWGA Annual Meeting/Luncheon and presentation of the day’s awards as well as the end-of-year awards.
There were two ladies who had 100% participation in all seven of the SSWGA events for the year: Grace Ireland (PCC) and Mary Coker (SCC). There were an additional ten ladies who had at least 80% participation.
Low gross for the year was Debbie Magee (WGAS) with an 84.8 average. Grace Ireland took Low Net average with 71.6, and Marge Snyder (NHGC) had the average low putts with 32.5.
And the Most Improved golfer was Pat Rice (SCC) with an amazing improvement from an index of 30.1 to 23.7. That didn’t just “happen”. Good work, Pat!
New Officers were elected at this meeting with Susan Berry (NHGC) continuing as President in 2015. Other officers will be listed in the right column of this blog.

FIRST PLACE:Cathy Buckley/Kyong Lee/Barbara McQuiller – 35

THIRD PLACE:Vicki Cella/Marge Snyder/Tommye Engelcke/Janet Sabo – 37
