Golf results for the week of 8/22/20112
Whitehawk Ranch Ladies Golf Club
On Tuesday, Aug. 14, the Whitehawk Ranch Ladies Golf Club had a two-person team competition. The modified Stableford scoring method was used. Each team was given a certain number of points per hole, depending on what their “better ball” was on that hole. For example, a par was scored as “2” points and a birdie was scored as “3” points. It was really a fun way to play and it forced you to keep your head in the game! The ultimate winners were Sharon Russell and Denise Stein. Congratulations. Happy golfing to everyone.
Lake Almanor West Women’s Golf
Today’s game was “The Flag;” players add 72 to their handicap. When they reach that number in play, they plant their flag, closest to the clubhouse wins.
First flight winner was Kathi Shennan — she came in four strokes under her score.
Second flight winner was Charlene Ferguson.
Mt. Huff Wednesday Morning Scramble
The Chips Fire didn’t stop the chip-ins, no, not at all. The Wednesday Morning Scramble at Mt. Huff Gold Course Aug. 15 went off just fine.
In first place was the team of Dick Grace, Jerry Hobbs and Greg Stevens.
In second place were Don Christensen, Mike Ingle and Leo Sorosinski.
Closest to the pin was taken by Mike Ingle.
There was a three-way tie for the chip-in contest, with Jerry Hobbs, Jerry Quam and Ralph Cote doing the victory dance.
Not to be outdone, Jerry Hobbs stole everyone’s thunder by scoring a hole-in-one on No. 8! Drinks were on Jerry!
