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!
