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

THIRD PLACE – 73

Cathy Buckley
Gloria Utley
Kathleen McCoy

FOURTH PLACE – 74

Donna Cobb
Jimmie Zey
Joanne McDonald

FIFTH PLACE – 75

Shirley Pettitt
Marge Snyder
Pam Crews

SIXTH PLACE – 77

Moise Allen
Gayle Gansfuss
Donna Ihle

Closest to Pin – Gloria Utley – 26 inches

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.
