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.
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!
