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!
