West Team wins Barbara Faye White Cup

Another exciting Barbara Faye White Cup Team Matches event on July 26th at Northwood Hills Golf Club! Forty-four ladies (not necessarily the same 44 as the first day) paired up into two-lady teams using a handicapped match play scramble format for a day of suspense and excitement.

The West Team was leading the East Team by only one point going into the second day, so it could have gone either way. But when the last teams finished, several taking all eighteen holes, the West Team was the victor, winning the second day with the same 6-5 score, for a total of 12 to 10 points.
Congratulations to the West Team that consisted of Northwood, Southern Trace, and BWGA at Shreveport CC! The East Team fought a great battle and everyone was sitting on the edge of their seats (eating a BEAUTIFUL salad) as the teams were finishing their matches. It was looking like a East victory at first, but the last teams in were West winners. It was a great day on the course!


Northwood was a great venue for the matches and the hospitality was great. Chairman Jimmie Zey did an outstanding job putting it all together, including a wonderful awards luncheon that included that beautiful fruit/chicken salad, warm chocolate cake, and frozen slushy iced tea. Yum!
Next year’s matches will be hosted by the Fox Run ladies. I’m already looking forward to it!

Barbara Faye White Cup Team Matches

Day 1 of the Barbara Faye White Cup Team Matches got off to a hot start today, July 21, at Northwood Hills Golf Club. Chairman Jimmie Zey juggled participants and pairings till the last minute, but much like a wedding, it all came out great. Forty-four ladies participated in 98* temps and did an outstanding job.
The six SWGA Association Clubs are divided into two teams: the East and the West, although the division is no longer a true east and west since we lost Palmetto CC. The East Team is Stonebridge CC, Eastridge CC, and Fox Run Golf Club.  The West Team is Northwood Hills GC, Southern Trace CC, and Shreveport CC.


 The format is a scramble, match play, with handicap, although most teams were evenly matched. Most teams went the full eighteen holes to determine winners, with the final score being West: 6 and East: 5. The second and final day of Team Matches will be Tuesday, July 26, when the winners will be determined. It is sure to be a close race. Thanks to the Northwood ladies and staff for their warm hospitality with this event. I heard there was a request for brownies on Tuesday!
