The first playday of the 2016 season for the Shreveport Women's Golf Assn. was scheduled for St. Patrick's Day, March 17th at Fox Run. Due to the horrible weather and so much flooding, the management at Fox Run states that the course won't be playable for at least 1 1/2 weeks. Therefore the March 17th playday is re-scheduled to March 31st at Fox Run at 9:30am.

Shreveport Senior Women’s Golf Assn. kicked off the 2016 golfing season with a scramble at The Golf Club at Stonebridge on Tuesday, March 8th. Twenty-nine ladies showed up in what was considered “questionable” weather conditions forecast for the day and the upcoming week. But it ended up with a pretty nice day with just a few sprinkles on the last couple holes.
Because of an unequal number of people, there some 4-lady teams and some 3-lady teams. Therefore, one person (excluding the “A” player) sat out on each hole so that only three people participated. Some people liked that “equalization” concept and some didn’t, but it is what it is. It was fun and everyone had a good outing.
Not sure how many teams there were, but the top three were as follows:
FIRST PLACE: 70
SECOND PLACE: 72
THIRD PLACE: 73

The course was in great shape, but that changed quickly starting the next day when the floods started, and at this date, the course is mostly under water. Most of the courses in our area are suffering the same problem which will probably cause some re-scheduling of events.
