It was a heavy mist and absolutely NO roll, but twenty-one ladies braved the elements on August 10th for the SSWGA Playday at Crooked Hollow.  The day ended up sunny, but sweltering, kind of like the scores!

2017 SSWGA Championship

Huntington Park Golf Club was the venue of the Shreveport Senior Women's Golf Association Championship this year since Fox Run was unable to host the event as originally planned.  Summer was really in bloom for this event on July 26 and 27, with the heat index in triple digits, but the pairings of two- and three-somes really helped get everyone off the course in record times.
Debbie Magee (out of the Golf Club at Stonebridge) won the Champion trophy with her very fine scores of 84 and 83, which also secured the Medalist Award for the first day low score.  Congratulations to the new Champion!
Also taking home a trophy was Mary Gallagher (from the Fox Run Golf Club), winning the Super Senior Championship with her nice scores of 92 and 87, as well as the Most Accurate Drive on day one.  Congratulations Mary!
Huntington was in great condition and Pro Reg Adams went out of his way to accommodate the group of thirteen ladies that participated in the event, including opening the course for the championship on its normal "closed" day of Wednesday.  Thanks to the entire staff.

SWGA Playday at Querbes

Unseasonably cool weather greeted the twenty-seven ladies who participated in the SWGA Playday at Querbes Park GC on June 7th. The course was in good condition, except for the clover, and the greens were unusually fast, but ran really true. The Beautification Committee has done a great job of "sprucing up" the course and the greens keeper has brought the greens a long way.


Thanks to everyone who came out and supported the SWGA group. And the course produced some nice low scores on Wednesday. The lowest gross score was an 80 by Shirley Pettitt, playing at her home course. She also had the lowest putts for the day with just 29, followed closely by Martha Lawhorne with 30. Good playing ladies!

SSWGA Playday at Querbes Park

May 31st was the playday that was re-scheduled due to rain at Querbes Golf Club.  The Broadmoor ladies hosted the Shreveport Senior Women’s Golf Association at the newly “trimmed” course where the greens were in very good condition.  Can’t say the same for the amount of clover that was present, but we’re hoping that will soon be gone too.
 
The low score of the day was an 89 by Debbie Magee of Stonebridge.  Cheryl Smith, also of Stonebridge, figured out the greens speed real nicely with just 30 putts for the day.  Congratulations ladies!

Just a "heads up"

Just want you to know that you may be seeing less pictures here on the blog because Google has changed things so much that I can't find anything that will work consistently for posting slideshow presentations and it takes way too much room to post pictures individually. Therefore, when I send out a notice that I've updated the blog, if there are pictures to view, I'll try to include them with the email. Sorry about this, but Google is giving me fits.
