Eastridge Member/Member Tournament

The Eastridge CC Ladies Association had its Member/Member Ringer Board Scramble Tournament on April 12 and 14.  Eleven 2-lady teams vied for the championship in this interesting format.  After playing the scramble on the first day, if the team scored better on any hole on the second day, the larger number was reduced to the second day's score on that hole.   Sounds like fun!

Joyce Middleton and Debbie Rolland started with a 74 on the first day, but on day two, they were able to replace a double bogey with a par, replaced two pars with birdies, and changed a bogey to a par for a final score of 67 Gross.  Congratulations ladies!

The other winners were Net winners, with Team Mullin/Corby scoring a net 58 and Team Rice/Oxner taking second Net with a 60.  Congratulations to all!

Wine and Roses


Bleak weather forecasts made wardrobe planning a real nightmare for the Wine and Roses 2-lady Scramble at Alexandria Country Club on April 12-13, but when all was said and done, it was great weather for both the practice round AND tournament!  Hoorah!

Forty three teams of ladies competed for the twelve winning spots, and FIVE of our eleven Shreveport area teams won one of those spots! 

As usual, there was a light meal for the welcoming party and lots of wine with a really great live band that had the ladies up on their feet and "boogie'ing".  Fun was had by all and it was a good time to visit ladies we hadn't seen since last golfing season.
The highlight of the practice round day was a Hole-in-One by our own Hui Bordelon (FRLGA) on Hole #7.  Congratulations Hui!


The highlight of the tournament was our own team Lillian Granger/Moise Allen winning the very TOP spot in the completion with a nice 71 score.  Good playing gals!

SSWGA Crooked Hollow Playday

Crooked Hollow Golf Club was the venue for the second SSWGA Playday of 2016.  Twenty-four ladies enjoyed playing in beautiful weather and enjoyed the hospitality of Manager John Graham.
 
This event was the first since we lost our Events Chairman Susan Berry, so the event was started with a brief prayer in Susan’s honor.  A big THANKS to Marge Snyder who has stepped up to take over for Susan.
 The low gross score of the day was a nice 85 by Hui Bordelon (FRLGA) and the Low Net was 67 by Martha Lawhorne (BWGA).  Putting was TOUGH, as the greens were super fast, but a couple of our ladies “mastered” them nicely.  In addition, Donna Ihle had an Eagle on Hole #1 and Pat Miller chipped in on Hole #3.  Congratulations ladies!
 

FIRST FLIGHT

Low Gross: Hui Bordelon – 85
Low Net: Nancy Young (BWGA) 70
Low Putts: Carmen Leach (FRLGA) 32

 

SECOND FLIGHT

Low Gross: Kathleen McCoy (BWGA) 86
Low Net: Martha Lawhorne 67
Low Putts: Grace Ireland (NHGC) 37

 

SUPER SENIORS

Low Net: Pat Rice (BWGA) 68
Low Putts:  Pat Miller (BWGA) 32
 
The next SSWGA Playday is scheduled for May 24th at Fox Run, so SAVE the DATE.

SWGA Fox Run Scramble


FINALLY.  We managed to kick off our 2016 SWGA golfing season, after being rained out the first time and BARELY sneaking in between raindrops on March 31st.  Our kick-off scramble at Fox Run hosted 34 ladies who “gambled” with making the trip early that morning with the threat of rain looming.  As it turned out, it was a nice day and we were 90 degree on almost all holes, rather than the cart path only we were expecting.

We went from 49 who had originally signed up to 34 that showed up, so pairings done by new Events Chairman Martha Lawhorne had to be re-shuffled at the last minute, but everyone had a great time, no matter how they were paired.

The course was wet, the air was thick, the wind was a bit gusty, but Carmen Leach (FRLGA) and her team of Kyong Lee (BWGA) and Ronda Smith (FRLGA) managed to shoot a really nice 67.  Congratulations gals!

SECOND PLACE (tie)
Cathy Jacobs (ERCC) - 71
Nancy Alexander (FRLGA)
Stella Rice (ERCC)

Vicki Cella (NHGC)- 71
Barbara McQuiller (BWGA)
Hui Bordelon (FRLGA)
Pam Crews (NHGC)

THIRD PLACE
Cathy Buckley (BWGA) - 72
Alyce Wyche (NHGC)
Pat Miller (BWGA)
Mira Zileska (FRLGA)

There was also a closest to the hole on Hole #10…..BUT….34 ladies missed the green!  However, I did witness Mary Moore (FRLGA) chip-in on that hole for a beautiful birdie!

Thanks for Fox Run for the warm hospitality and patience with our last minute decision to play that day.  Our next SWGA event is at Stonebridge on April 19th, 9:00am shotgun.  Hope to see you there.

Remember, if you missed this first event, you can still get 100% participation if you play in at least one of the Team Matches!
