SWGA Playday at Northwood Hills

Northwood Hills hosted a great group of thirty-five ladies at the SWGA playday event today, August 18.  The weather cooperated with a nice breeze all day.  The hospitality and wonderful food treats were as wonderful as usual.  Good job, ladies.

In addition to great weather, there was some great scoring today.  The low gross of the day was a 76 by Mary Lynn Stuart (ERCC), followed by a really nice score of 79 for Vicki Cella (NHGC) who also landed the low net of the day with a 63 AND overall low putts with only 25.  Second low net of the day went to Donna Cobb (FRLGA) with a nice 66.  And I must mention here that Grace Ireland (NHGC) made an Eagle, on a par four sinking the ball from about 100 yards out!  Go get ‘em Grace!

SWGA Playday at Fox Run

Mother Nature sent a really nice breeze today to help make the 100* temps more tolerable for the 32 ladies that came out to play at Fox Run Golf Club.  For the most part, the scores were low, with a third of the field scoring 90 or less!  Not bad, ladies!
Highlight of the day was a hole in one by Joyce Middleton on Hole #8.  This makes two in the last four years.  Congratulations Joyce.

Low gross score of the day was shot by Mary Lynn Stuart with a sweet 78, followed closely behind by Kathy Davis with a really nice 81.  Low Net of the day was a tie between Gayle Gansfuss and Hui Bordelon with a whopping 63.  Marge Snyder was acting like a professional out there today, needing only 28 putts for her round!
