On July 4 the course was open to all golfers for Fourth of July guests. We did not have a Club day. July 11 was a Reverse Cha Cha Cha Draw day. Team score was either 3, 2 or 1 Net score per hole. It was a Team Draw day. The Low Net for the day went to Betty Moyles with a Net 62. Others with special accomplishments were: Mo Mazzocco, Birdie Hole #3; Yvetta Testman, Chip-in Hole #4; Dottie Teague, Birdies Holes #3 and 16.


Winning teams were: First Place, Moyles, Edwards, Szyper and Kraemer, Team Score 121; Second Place, Teague, Liljeblad, Brusher and Brewster, Team Score 124; Third Place, Sainz, Thode, O’Toole, and Plette, Team Score 128.

July 18 was the Battle of the Sexes, where the Ladies Club played against the Men’s Club. We had great weather and the course was in great shape. There were close matches all the way around but at the end of the day, the Ladies took the match with a total score of 8 1/2 to the Men’s score of 7 1/2. This brings the scores for this tournament to all square, the men having won last year. We will be fighting it out for a tiebreaker next year.

On July 25 we played an Individual Low Net round. Low Net of the day went to Patricia O’Toole with a nice Net 61. Congratulations, Patricia! Others with special accomplishments were:

Way to go, ladies!

Aug. 1 started the M2 Cup. This is a Match Play tournament pitting the A team against the B team. The players play in foursomes of two players from each team. The first round was a Net Best Ball, meaning the team with the lowest Net score of the foursome won the hole.

At the end of the first round Team A leads with 7 1/2 to Team B with 4 1/2. There are three additional rounds to play, with the final round on Aug. 22. I will have the final score in my next article. Good luck to both teams!
