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.
