SWGA Playday at Stonebridge


On June 28th, forty SWGA ladies converged on Stonebridge Golf Club for our annual playday.  It was mighty hot, but the course was as beautiful as ever.  Thanks to the staff and members for making us all feel so welcome.
 
Scores covered a wide range, but Mary Lynn Stuart took the overall low gross honors with a really nice 77, followed by Kathy Davis (STCC) with a 79.  Overall low net for the day was a 68 by Debbie Magee (WGAS).  Putts ranged from 30 to 42, but overall low putts was a tie between Kathleen McCoy and Becky Farr with just 30 putts.  And we had seven chip/putt-ins, which is unusually high.  Congrats to all!

Bonnie and Clyde Couples Tournament

The Bonnie and Clyde Couples Tournament brought out fifty-four couples for the weekend of June 25-26 at Northwood Hills Golf Club.  The heat was strong, but the players were too.  There was about an hour rain delay on day 2, but it didn’t dampen the spirits. 
 
The lowest single round of the event was a 63 by Team Coatney/Coatney while the lowest combined two-day total was a nice 130 (66/64) by Team Faulkner/Faulkner.  The format was a scramble, but the flighting wasn’t done until after both days’ play and a blind draw ended with the first day being the flighting day.
 
It was a great tournament with a couple “gimmick” treats like a “pick up” on the green for each player, each day.  Both the Bonnies and the Clydes got to move up considerably one day each on #18 hole, and that was surely a treat.  The beverage cart was putting on a lot of mileage with free drinks all day and the food was an assortment of Italian and Tex-Mex favorites.  The free Club Car offered for the first hole-in-one got to go home to Golf Carts of Louisiana, but it was a great incentive.  Pam Crews and her crew of helpers put on a great tournament again this year!

1st Place: Faulkner/Faulkner 66/64 (130)

SWGA Playday at Shreveport Country Club



Wow, the morning started out very warm because of high humidity, but ended up being a beautiful golf day at Shreveport Country Club.  Thirty-three SWGA ladies participated in this stroke-play event on Wednesday, June 8.  The greens are still recovering from the long, wet winter, but the course was otherwise, in good shape.  Even with somewhat “bumpy” greens, overall low putts for the day was thirty by Suzanne Patton (BWGA) and Melissa Brenner (NHGC).
 
Mary Lynn Stuart (ERCC) had the low round of the day with a really nice 83, followed by Suzanne Tinsley with an 86.  Overall Low Net Score was a 63 by Melissa Brenner, whose low putts must have helped achieve that low score!  And showing off at her home course was Martha Lawhorne who holed out from 88 yards on #15 for a birdie!  Good golfing ladies!
