On July 24 Kay Gilbert broke 90 with a very nice 85! Way to go, Kay! Now, you just have to do it on Thursday so we can pay you and get you a nice Break pin. I know it won’t be long now!
Trish Willard broke 90 on Aug. 2 during Team Play with a nice 82! Nice going, Trish! Unfortunately, Hole #8 was closed and we had to use par plus pops on the hole. The rules say we have to play all 18 holes; no picking up or temp greens. I am sure you would have still broken 90, and I am sure you will do it again soon.
Can’t wait to be able to give both of you your pins!
Aug. 2 was Team Play here at Lake Wildwood. Our ladies did a great job and finished in First Place for the day, putting us in fourth place overall for the season so far.
Also, on Aug. 2 was our fifth round of the WGANC Pendant race. We played Low Net from the Pine Tees. For those of you that were in Team Play, your handicaps were adjusted from the Green Tees.
There were a bunch of special awards. Trish Willard had the Low Net for the day, with a nice Net 62. Good golfing, ladies!
Betsy Szyper had a nice eagle on Hole #14! Cheers!
Chip-ins: Marie Wemple on #7, Sandy Twohig on #12, Kathleen Galbo on #2, Joyce Maddox on #12, Marilyn Baca on #13; and Karen Hisken on #4.
Birdies: Nina Quintal on #1; Terri Mesple on #3; Karen Price on #1, #2 and #11; Patti Egge on #4; and Kay Gilbert on #2.
Mo Mazzocco had birdies on #1 and #2 and a chip-in on #2. Trish Willard had birdies on #7 and #15 and a chip-in on #7.
Fantastic golfing, ladies!
