Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell Scramble….
Over twenty-five years ago, the annual Jingle Bell Scramble became a tradition that brings the Shreveport Senior Women’s Association and Shreveport Women’s Golf Association together to participate together at Northwood Hills Golf Club. It is also one of our opportunities to “play it forward” by donating to the Toys for Tots program handled by the Marine Corps.
This year’s scramble consisted of thirty-seven ladies who “layered up” for the cold weather that warmed up into a beautiful sunny day. In spite of all the recent rain, the course was nicely manicured and the greens were in great shape. To keep it that way, we had cart paths only, but it was just a nice walk in the sunshine.
Of the nine teams, scores ranged from 65 to 74 with four teams having a 71, which was par for the day. Shooting the fine 65 score was Team Debbie Magee, Gayle Gansfuss, Sandra West, and Grace Ireland. Congratulations ladies!!!
After play, a lovely buffet lunch was served and enjoyed by all. Thanks to the Northwood ladies for their warm hospitality and wonderful “goodies” as usual.
