Wildwood Niners

This month’s article begins with a piece of information that might prove useful. Carlis told me that if you have had communication problems calling 432-3900 for golf course information, call 264-4512. That number should give you the frost line and golf information you are seeking.

At our September meeting, Captain Pat reported that we will have later starting times this coming winter. We will have 9 a.m. starts in January, February, March, October and November.

On the third Tuesdays, however, we will have a 10 a.m. start. On those third Tuesdays we will have a 4 p.m. Happy Hour meeting in the Oak Room.

All sixty-eight players who participated in the 2015 Golf 4 Two Tournament seemed to agree that they had a great time on Sept. 3. Many thanks go to Ginger McGee for her work in setting up this yearly event.

She had help from a lot of people, including: Jim Knight, who did the pairings; Carlis Gilbert, who did the scoring; Linda and Bob Campbell, responsible for the putting contest; and last, but not least, Vickie Daugherty, Linda Thies and Jan Wilcock, in charge of registration.

Congratulations to all of the winners.

In the Putting Contest, they were: 1st place, Ken Clark; 2nd place, Caryl Fairfull; and 3rd place, Ginger McGee. Closest-to-the-Pin on the Front Nine were Jack Westrum and Kay Gilbert. On the Back Nine the winners were Jerry Biagini and Loretta Monteforte.

The Scramble winners on the Front Nine were: 1st place, Marilyn and Jack Westrum, and Lucy and Jim Gratteau; 2nd place, Arlene and Terry Thelen, and Rose Frazier-Hart and Dennis Armstrong; 3rd place, Bambi Flanigan and Tom Konofilick, and Kay & Carlis Gilbert.

The Back Nine winners were: 1st place, Jean and John Hardy, and Deborah and Philip Stein; 2nd place, Beth and Jerry Biagini, and Rita and Rick Kahil; 3rd place, Jan and Dennis Logins, and Judy and Stan Goodrich.

Our next September event — Babe’s Boutique, on Sept. 8, in the Community Center Marina Room — was another success. Thanks is due to all the workers: Caryl Fairfull, Jodie Stover, Pat Queen, Kathy Pierce, Kathy Murphy, Linda Thies, Barbara Cross, Mary Sowers, Linda Campbell, Liz Alvarado, Ali Mckeon and, of course, chairman Pat Perbetsky.

A very big thank you goes to all who donated so many very nice items for sale. What wasn’t sold was donated to Hospice Gift & Thrift.

Pat sends her thanks to the Niners who helped with the Wounded Warriors Tournament. The members who helped with the clean-up included Vickie Daugherty, Rose Frazier-Hart, Joan Bachus, Linda Campbell and Mary Sowers.

It was an “Amazing August” this year. Birdies were scored on Hole #2 by Linda Campbell and Barbara Cross. Betty Moyles had three birdies — one on #1, one on #3 and one on #17. I guess she decided to skip #2 and give it a rest. All three of you ladies are awesome.

Breaking 50 was also a popular activity. It was especially true for Nancy Black (47, 49 and 49), Linda Campbell (45) and Betty Moyles (44, 47 and 48). Good work and congratulations to the three of you.

Having a chip-in helps bring the scores down. Congratulations to Joanie Broomfield #14, Linda Campbell #3 and #4, Heidi Estep #12, Judy Goodrich #3, Sharon Kramer #13. Robin La Ponzina #12, Bobbi Meyer #8 and Linda Thies #8.

Quite a few Niners broke net. Those golfers included: Judy Pappas 34, Mary Sowers 32, Deborah Stein 28 and 35, Linda Campbell 32, 27 and 33, Betty Moyles 36 and 34, Nancy Black 34 and 35, Patti Haney 34, Lois Jones 34, Sharon Kramer 35, Robin La Ponzina 35, Terry Scalisi 34, Barbara Cross 33, Rose Frazier-Hart 32, Joan Lawver 34 and Linda Thies 35.

The prize for the lowest net for the month of August, with a score of 27, goes to Linda Campbell!

Congratulations to all the Niners who made the record books for August 2015.

It is time to stand up and cheer for the August Most Improved Golfer. Linda Campbell was the recipient of this honor. First runner-up was Deborah Stein; second, Patti Haney; and third, Nancy Black.

Congratulations go to these best of the Niners for August.
