On Thursday, Oct. 5, GMWGC hosted its 32nd Annual Turd Tournament. The Turd Tournament is so named because at this time of year the fairways are aerated which, in days of old, left mud plugs (turds) all over the golf course. The weatherwas sunny, theClubhouse and golf course were decorated as a Halloween Happening and the players got into the Halloween theme in their attire. There was a “trick” or “treat” on every par 3 and 5 – putters prohibited on par 3s, and players could tee up every shot on par 5s – and, of course, pumpkin bowls of candy onseveral tee boxes.
The game of the day was “Envelope,” in which an envelope was placed on each tee telling the players how many net balls counted as their team score for theprior hole (one, two or three). Play was followed by anhors d’oeuvre luncheon at the Graeagle Clubhouse.
The 2017 Turd Queen is Cheryl Brennan, with a net 67. In the team game, three teams scored 123.In the “card off,” First Place, went to the team of Diane Forsberg, Chris Laxague, Karen Linde and Donna Swanson; Second Place, Cathy Churchill, Karen Fraser, Carol Miller and Priscilla Piper; and Third Place, Holly Anderson, Giuliana Glazer, Sharla Scott and Diane Trainor.Cynthia Baldwincaptured closest to the pin honors on Hole 3 6 feet).
