BWGA Member/Guest Scramble

The Broadmoor Womens’ Golf Association at Shreveport Country Club hosted its first Member/Guest Scramble competition on Wednesday, May 25.  It was a beautiful day for the twenty-six ladies that came together for good fun, food, and friendship.

The fun started with a putting contest that consisted of two attempts at approximately 25 feet from the hole.  After all had given it a try, there were two ladies that MADE THE PUTT:  Jeanette Bohringer and Judy Ferguson.  That called for a putt-off, and Jeanette got the closest on that attempt.  Congratulations on some great putting!

The course was in great shape and lunch was really tasty and refreshing after the temperatures had started to soar.  Events Chairman Nina Glorioso and her committee did an outstanding job, using the red/white/blue theme and flags as a tribute to those we miss so dearly during this Memorial Day season.

Members invited guests that were from other clubs, and even other cities, to join them in this scramble format.  There were only net score prizes since it was handicapped.
 
FIRST FLIGHT:
1st Place: Member Shirley Pettitt/Guest Joyce Middleton 63.5
2nd Place: Member Jeanette Bohringer/Guest Debbie Magee 66.9


SECOND FLIGHT:
1st Place: Member Pat Rice/Guest Pam Crews 67.7
2nd Place: Member Glenda Start/Guest Debbie Oxner 70.4


Closet to the Pin: Glenda Stark
Most Accurate Drive: Pat Rice
Putting Contest Winners: Jeanette Bohringer/Debbie Magee


It was a really great event and we hope to continue to do this in the future with even more teams!

SSWGA Playday at Fox Run

Another beautiful golfing day!  The Shreveport Senior Women’s Golf Assn. had its playday at Fox Run Golf Course on May 24th, with twenty-seven ladies participating.  It was great to see some ladies that have been missing from our events for awhile, either due to illness or bad weather. 
 
The low gross score of the day was had by two ladies:  Debbie Magee (WGAS) and Nancy Young (BWGA), both shooting a really nice 85.  Congratulations ladies!  Overall low net score was also a tie between Pat Rice (BWGA) and Stella Rice (ERCC) with a low of 66.  Good golfing ladies!  And low putts went to Kathy Davis (NHGC) with just 27!

SWGA Championship-Date Change

Please change your calendars for the date of the SWGA Championship at Huntington Park.  It has been changed from September 12-13 to September 19-20.  And, yes, the dates are correct.  That is a Monday and Tuesday.


Huntington is allowing those who are signed up for the championship to play a practice round during the week prior and is charging only the cart fee.  You must be on the list of paid participants in order to get this rate, so you must be signed up prior to your practice round.

Southern Belle Rescheduled

A message from Southern Belle Tournament Chairman Kathy Davis:

Dear Southern Belle participant,

In the last six weeks Southern Trace has endured over 33” of rain. With the most recent storms last night and over the weekend we regret to inform you that this year’s event has been rescheduled for October 11-12. 

We did everything we could to prepare the golf course, but unfortunately at this time some of the holes on the back 9 are closed and unplayable.

We will reserve your team for the reschedule date until June 1 at which time we will open the field to those teams on the current waiting list. Please call the Golf Shop at 318-798-8301 beginning Tuesday May 3 to confirm entry for the new date. If you submitted a check it will be shredded and we ask that you bring a new check with you on October 11.

Once again we are very sorry and look forward to an exciting event in the fall with our Olympic Swing for Gold theme.
