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!

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!
