Battle of the Sexes ­— Lady, Men 18-holers Clash! Duck!!

Karen Price just got back from the WGANC Swingin’ Seniors Best Ball Tournament.  It was held June 24 and 25 at Cameron Park CC.   Karen and Her partner, Carol Clifton from Sierra View, teamed up to win Low Gross in the 1st flight with 66 Stableford points. Congratulations Karen!

Marion Bennett tells me that LWW came through again at the Auburn Valley’s Invitational on June 20 and 21. Mary Jane Brusher’s team came in 2nd low Net in the 2nd flight and Marion Bennett’s team came in 1st low gross in the 2nd flight and 2nd in the horse race.  Yea for LWW, go LWW. 

The Queen Bee tournament finished up on June 20th. Thanks to Terri Mesple and Betsy Szyper for putting on a fun tournament for us! Everyone played really well during the two-day event. As evidenced by the large number of Birdies and Chip-ins that you ladies achieved. As well as the number of Breaks. The week of June 13th there were four of you that had Breaks. That is more than we had all last year. Congratulations to Nita Edwards for Breaking 100 for the first time with a nice 93. Sandy Twohig broke 90 for her first time with a nice 89. Shari Davis Broke 90 for her first time with an 88. And Chris Fridman broke 90 with a nice 87. Congratulations ladies!

July 18t will be the Battle of the Sexes! Grab your Lady partner and we will match you by your team handicap with members of the 18-hole Men’s club. The sign-up sheet and flyer are in the Pro Shop! Cost is $5 per person. Bring your checks or if you pay cash put it in an envelope with your name and place it in the manila envelope in the Pro Shop. This is a 2-person best ball match play round. You may choose your female partner and you will be paired up with a team of 2 men with similar handicaps. You will receive 1 point for winning your individual match and ½ point for a tie. The individual points will be added to determine the club score. The club that has the most accumulated points will win and share the prize money.

If you are a woman resident of Lake Wildwood and love to play golf, we would love to meet you. If you are looking to meet some fun gals to play golf with, we would love to have you join us. We play on Thursday mornings. Contact MJ Brusher at 205-9492 for details on how to join our club.

My next article is due on July 10, so please have any club related information to me by that deadline. Enjoy the sunshine and I will see you on the course.
