Bailey Creek Women’s Club
It seems that we mountain golfers try to get as much in as possible before the snow flies. That surely is the case with the Bailey Creek Women’s Club during the first half of August.
On Aug. 7, the group had a great turnout for a low gross/low net game.
In the first flight, Donna White had the low gross score, with Wynnetta Regli winning the low net competition.
In the second flight, Jenni Cesarin won low gross and Doris Prince won low net.
There were three “Chip-Ins” made by Cheryl Erwin, Jan Vortman and Jenni Cesarin. Cheryl also had a “Birdie” on hole No. 7. A luncheon meeting followed play.
The club has had a few Sunday play days in hopes of seeing some of the ladies that are in the area primarily on weekends.
On Sunday, Aug. 11, the group played a game of “Mutt and Jeff.” Cheryl Erwin placed first and Jan Vortman came in second in the first flight. Placing first and second respectively in the second flight were Ginger Birchfield and Jenni Cesarin.
The most recent playday was Wed., Aug. 14. In a “Point Par” format, Lynn Bottini took home the sweeps in the first flight, with Ginger Birchfield taking first in the second flight. Lynn had a Birdie and Ginger had not one, but two, “Chip-Ins.”
As if that was not enough, several of the ladies played the “Italia” themed tournament at Lake Almanor West the following Thursday. It was a fantastic day, thanks to those LAW ladies, the LAW staff and volunteers.
Bailey Creek Ladies host a guest day on the third Wednesday of each month. If you would like to join us as a guest let any of the Bailey Creek Women’s Club members know.
Graeagle Meadows Women’s Club Championship
The Graeagle Meadows Women’s Golf Club held its three-round Club Championship on Aug. 8, 13 and 15. Players were challenged during rounds two and three by very smoky air due to forest fires elsewhere in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Whitehawk Ranch Ladies Golf Club
Aug. 13, 2013
It was a beautiful crisp morning for our ladies golf though smoke brought some haze to the usually pristine skies. But it did not affect the clear focus for trying to help a team score in the format called One, Two, Three. Each player played her own ball for individual scores but for the game score one best net ball was used on the par 5’s, two best net balls on the par 4’s, and 3 best net balls on the par 3’s.
The first place net team was JoAnn West, Laurie McKenzie, Ann Verutti, and Lynn Smith. The second place net team was Barbara Competello, Toni Dick, Chris Hyatt, and Janice Jobe. Chris Hyatt had a fortunate Chip –in on No. 9!

Thursday, Aug. 15, was a perfect day for the West Shore ladies’ club to hold a tournament. The weather was beautiful for the 56 ladies who enjoyed the game format of Cha Cha Cha. The golf course was a riot of red, green and white, the colors of the Italian flag, worn by the participants in honor of the tournament theme, Italia.
