Lady Calvert Tournament


Calvert Crossing Country Club was the site of the Lady Calvert two-lady scramble at Calhoun, LA.  It was flighted after play, so everyone had a chance to win, no matter what their handicaps.

Hospitality and course were great, especially considering how much relentless rain we have had.  For those of you who have never experienced this course, it is one of those traditional, tree-abundant courses where you have to drive a little distance between most greens and the next tee.  The beautiful homes that lined the course are set back considerably, with wonderfully manicured landscaping and abundant colors.

It was hit-and-miss up to the last minute as to whether the tournament would be postponed due to rain forecasts.  The decision to “carry on” as planned was probably a good one in spite of the cart-paths-only condition on the day of the tournament.  It was a drizzle-sunshine-sauna-drizzle-sunshine-sauna day…..but we finished and we were all winners.
Shreveport was represented well by five teams….with two teams in the winners’ circle.  Best score of the day was a great 67 by Marge Richters and Cori Stegall.

This club is also hosting its annual Lords and Ladies Couples Tournament on August 1-2.  For more information, contact the Calvert Crossing Pro Shop.
