The opening event of the 2015 golfing season snuck in between rains on Tuesday, March 17th, at the beautiful Golf Club at Stonebridge for the Shreveport Senior Womens Golf Assn. Thirty-two ladies joined in the fun of the 4-lady scramble on a day that actually produced some sweaty foreheads.
Although the course was cart paths only, it wasn't really muddy and the sand traps were "fluffy" (for those of us who got to find out the hard way). With the tight lies that are still present with our extremely long winter, it was a challenging day of golf.....but it was great fun!
Scores ranged from 68 to 82 with a log-jam right in the middle of that. The winning team was Debbie Magee (WGAS), Becky Hollier (WGAS), Tommye Engelcke (BWGA) and Barbara McQuiller (BWGA).
Second best score was 71 by Team Kim Darnell (WGAS), Allison Rains (WGAS), Pat Rice (BWGA) and Bobbie Jo Almond (FRLGA).
Several teams scored 73, but after the scorecard playoff, third place went to Team Cathy Buckley (BWGA), Donna Cobb (FRLGA), Jane Smith (WGAS) and Susan Berry (NHGC).
Fourth place was Team Teri McGuire (WGAS), Kathleen McCoy (BWGA), Jeanette Bohringer (BWGA) and Alyce Wyche (NHGC).
Thanks to all of you who came out to support the SSWGA in spite of the cart paths only. You are appreciated and everyone was glad to see each other on such a beautiful day.
The next SSWGA event is April 9th, with 9:00am shotgun, at Crooked Hollow GC. This will be regular stroke play. Hope to see you then.

We regret that it is necessary to cancel our first golfing event of the year: the Fox Run Scramble that was scheduled for March 19. Course management advised that it would be the best thing to do since we have had SOOO much rain and expect more on Wednesday. Therefore, we will re-schedule the event and you will be notified of the new date. Sooner or later, we will get to play some golf!
