SWGA Playday at StoneBridge

FINALLY!  We got to kick-off our 2015 SWGA golfing season with a scramble at Stonebridge on Tuesday, April 28th.  You would think that in late April it would be warm.....BUT.....it was a very cool 50-something degrees with north winds!

It didn't matter though, because 37 ladies bundled up and enjoyed the fun and excitement of visiting with ladies we haven't seen in awhile.  Mother Nature caused us to cancel the first event of the year, but we fooled her today.  The course was in great shape considering the tons of rain we have had over the last three months, and as usual, we were treated with the warm Stonebridge hospitality.

We followed our usual tradition of starting the season with a scramble.  This was Events Chairman Moise Allen's first experience in handling events, and she did a great job.  Thanks to everyone for being patient with all the changes.  Here are the results:

FIRST PLACE: 66

Bonnie and Clyde Couples Tournament

The Bonnie and Clyde Couples Tournament, hosted by Northwood Ladies Golf Association, has returned to the golfing circuit for northwest Louisiana.  This tournament was formerly one of the "don't miss" tournaments, but went through a few years' break with the change in management of the club. 

The scramble event will be held Saturday and Sunday, June 13 & 14, with 1:00pm shotgun starts on both days.  The $220 per team entry fee includes lunch before play on Saturday, dinner after play on Sunday, practice round (excluding cart) the week prior to the tournament, one mulligan per player per day, and beverages on the course both days.  For more information and entry form, Click Here.

Thankfully, the re-emergence of the tournament comes at a good time since the Palmetto Classic and the Nikki Patterson Invitational are no longer being held in this area.  Although these two are ladies' tournaments, it's great to have a fun couples tournament to step up and fill the void created by these two events.

SSWGA Playday at Crooked Hollow
