SWGA Annual Meeting/Luncheon


Shreveport CC was the venue for the Annual SWGA Meeting and Luncheon to launch 2016’s golfing activities…. to say goodbye to the old Officers, to welcome the new, and present the End of Year Awards for 2015.
 
Forty-seven ladies, over half of our membership, enjoyed the food and fellowship, as usual, since we have few opportunities to simply ”visit” as a group.
 
All Officers reported on their areas of responsibility and it was a tremendously successful year, in spite of numerous event re-schedulings due to bad weather.  We had four stroke play events, the two-day championship at a totally new and neutral venue (Huntington Park), three scramble events, and an amazing Team Match two-day event that ended in a tie.  What a year!
 
Events Chairman Moise Allen started the End of Year Awards presentation with those who had attained 100% participation for 2015, which was the first time we tried a new system.  If any member missed one “required” event, but participated in at least one Team Match event, they were still considered as having 100% participation.  We had nine ladies who attained a TRUE 100% participation:  Bobby Jo Almond, Cathy Buckley, Hui Bordelon, Gayle Gansfuss, Grace Ireland, Martha Lawhorne, Mary Moore, Jill Litton and Marge Snyder.  Five ladies missed one regular event, but played in at least one day of Team Matches: Vicki Cella, Kathy Davis, Carmen Leach, Joyce Middleton, and Mary Lynn Stuart.
 
Gross, net, and putt awards were based on your lowest four scores in each area.  The Low Net Awards were decided by hundredths of a point.
1st Low Net: (Avg. 69.1) Gayle Gansfuss, FRLGA
2nd Low Net: (Avg. 69.20) Hui Bordelon, FRLGA
3rd Low Net: (Avg. 69.25) Vicki Cella, NHGC
4th Low Net: (Avg. 69.5) Mary Moore, FRLGA
The low gross awards were just as close: 1st Low Gross: (Avg. 79) Mary Lynn Stuart, ERCC

2nd Low Gross: (Avg. 79.75) Kathy Davis, STCC

Low Putts winner was Kathy Davis with an average of 29.  Great putting!


The most improved Handicap Index award went to Martha Lawhorne, BWGA, after decreasing her index by 4.5 points.  That’s great!



2015 President Kathleen McCoy introduced the new Officers for 2016:
President: Joyce Middleton, ERCC
1st VP (Championship): Suzanne Tinsley, WGAS
2nd VP (Team Matches): Jimmie Zey, NHGC
Secretary: Mary Moore, FRLGA

Treasurer: Moise Allen, STCC
Events: Martha Lawhorne, BWGA @ SCC

The Club Reps for 2016 are listed in the right hand column of this blog.


McCoy announced that this year, we will be paying $30 for each of our playday events, an increase of $5 from the past few years.  Our first SWGA event is a scramble at Fox Run on St. Patricks Day (March 17), so wear your green!  Hope to see you there!
