SWGA/SSWGA Jingle Bell Scramble

Brrrrr.  Twenty-nine bunded-up ladies braved the cold, wet conditions and were on standby up till the last moment the night before the December 6 Jingle Bell Scramble.  There had been lots of rain and we weren't sure if it would happen or not, but these determined ladies showed up and enjoyed what is always a good time just before the rush of the Christmas holidays.
Northwood Hills Golf Club hosted the annual event and as usual, it was terrific.  The Northwood ladies even cooked the food themselves for the luncheon and it was GOOD!  The course was in great shape, especially considering the harsh weather that preceded the tournament.  Management outdid themselves to make us all feel welcome.


Ten groups of ladies competed against each other, with scores ranging from 70 to 81.  There was a whole group of 75's that had to find their place after scorecard playoffs.  When it was all counted, the first place team of Tinsley/Airhart/Engelcke shot a really great 70.  Other winners were:


SECOND PLACE:  Graves/Litton/Tatum - 73
THIRD PLACE: Gallagher/Wyche - 75
FOURTH PLACE: Pettitt/Crews/Ronda Smith - 75
FIFTH PLACE: Moore/Suzanne Patton/McCoy - 75


CTP #3 - Vicki Cella
CTP #16 - Gayle Gansfuss
CTL - Joyce Middleton


This was the last event of the 2016 season for both the SWGA and SSWGA.  The next event is the SWGA Annual Luncheon/Meeting on January 13, 2017, at Eastridge Country Club, 11:30am.
