The Golf Club at Huntington Park hosted the SSWGA ladies association with 18 ladies participating. The course was in good shape and the staff was very helpful. This was the first stroke play event of the season and the attendance was less than we hoped for, but those that played enjoyed the golf and the fellowship.
The SSWGA has provisions for the regular senior ladies (50 and over) as well as the super senior ladies (70 and over). This year, fifty percent of the membership are super seniors, and each year, the number is growing in that category. The numbers were true in this event also.
In the regular division, the low gross score of the day was 90 by Jane Smith (WGAS), while Low Net was Daneita Adams (BWGA) with a score of 70. There was a tie for Low Putts between Martha Lawhorne (BWGA) and Cheryl Smith (WGAS) with just 34 putts.
In the Super Senior division, Joyce Middleton (ERCC) won Low Gross honors (even with a gimped knee) with a very nice 83. Low Net was a 66 by Jan Crowe (BWGA) and Low Putts of 33 by Pat (Miller) Mason (NHGC).
Our next SSWGA event is at Eastridge CC on May 1st. We are looking forward to a good turnout. If you haven't already signed up, do so immediately for this opportunity to play this very nice golf venue.
