SWGA Turkey Scramble


For years, our SWGA Turkey Scramble was hosted by Palmetto CC.  With the demise of Palmetto, Shreveport Country Club hosted this year’s scramble, with forty ladies participating on thirteen teams.  The weather was ideal, especially for this time of year, the course was in good shape, and Golf Pro John Schurman and the SCC staff welcomed everyone.

Scores ranged from 69 to 81.  Sixth place required a scorecard playoff between four teams.  All ladies vied for Closest to the Pin on the same hole, and Gloria Utley showed off with her 26 inch putt….and yes, made the birdie.  Winners received Dick’s Sporting Goods gift cards.  Results are:

FIRST PLACE - 69

Mary Coker
Martha Lawhorne
Linda Colvin
Jill Litton

SECOND PLACE – 72

Joyce Middleton
Mary Gallagher
Julie Butterfield

The next last SWGA event of the year is the Jingle Bell Scramble which is a joint venture between SWGA and SSWGA.  It will be held at Northwood GC on December 3rd.  Please bring an unwrapped gift for Toys for Kids.

SSWGA Championship


Twenty-two ladies signed up to play in the SSWGA Championship at Northwood Hills GC in spite of the impending rain forecast….which was right on!  On Day 1, October 27th, rain gear appeared  on every cart and the day was  “cover your clubs….uncover your clubs” on the cart-path-only rain-drenched course.  Yep.  It was a challenge.

Day 2 was a different story as the weather cleared and the cart was mostly accessible by cart, making for much better golfing conditions.  In spite of all the rain, the course was as good as it could possibly be, and the Northwood ladies made everyone feel comfortable and “at home”.

The weather didn’t bother Debbie Magee of Stonebridge as she posted a really nice score of 86, winning the Medalist honors for Day 1, with Cathy Buckley of BWGA at Shreveport CC in second place, seven strokes behind her. 

Day 2 was a flip for those two ladies.  Cathy had an outstanding day, closing the gap between the two and needing to make the putt on Hole 18 to tie for a playoff.  But Debbie made a dramatically long putt from just off the green into the hole and Cathy missed her shorter putt.  Debbie Magee won the Senior Championship by one stroke with a total of 178.  Congratulations Debbie!  How exciting!

For the first time this year, there was a new Championship category for the Super Seniors.  Eight ladies competed in this division and Jimmie Zey won the Medalist prize with her score of 96, but Joyce Middleton of Eastridge CC cut 13 strokes off her score on Day 2 and took home the new trophy with her scores of  99 and 86.  Congratulations to Joyce!
