Another beautiful day for the SSWGA Turkey Scramble at Northwood Golf Club! Thirty-three ladies enjoyed the Northwood hospitality, course, and food on Tuesday, November 15th.
Scores were tight, ranging from 69 to 75. The FIRST PLACE spot was a tie that was decided by scorecard playoff with the winners being Team Pettitt/Litton/Ihle/Brown. The other with that good score, winning SECOND PLACE honors, was Team Buckley/Hawkins/Offer. Good golfing, ladies!
THIRD PLACE - 72
FOURTH PLACE – 73
Farr/Colvin/Cheryl Smith/Stella Rice
FIFTH PLACE - 73
Fisher/Snyder/Kathy Davis (NW)/Gilley
The next (and final) event of the year is the Jingle Bell Scramble which is an SWGA/SSWGA combined event at Northwood on December 6th. Hope to see you there!

Eighty-five degrees on November 3rd? Yep. It’s been awhile since we played the SWGA Turkey Scramble while wearing shorts and wishing we had brought the portable fan.
Of the seven teams, six had scores in the 60’s. The best score of the day was a 65 by team Shirley Pettitt/Gloria Utley/Kathleen McCoy/ and Kathy Davis (of Northwood).
But twenty-eight ladies came out to participate in the 4-person Turkey Scramble at Crooked Hollow, hosted by the Broadmoor Women’s Golf Assn. And it was a great day of fun and socializing. As usual, John Graham made us welcome and cooked hamburgers and all the fixings for the awards luncheon.

A foggy morning greeted the ladies participating in the SSWGA Championship on November 1st. Luckily, the fog lifted shortly after teeing off and it got unseasonably warm. As usual, the course was beautiful and the ladies were challenged by the undulating, fast greens.
After two days of stroke play, Moise Allen rose to the challenge, winning the championship with duplicate scores of 91, which also gave her Medalist honors. In Super Senior division, Joyce Middleton won the champion trophy with scores of 94/93, which also gave her the Medalist trophy for that division. Congratulations to both ladies for some good golfing.
