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)

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!
