LACC Women’s Golf Club
The LACC Women’s Golf Club played a Texas Scramble on Tuesday, June 6. We played with three-person teams, which proved to be fast moving and fun. From our drives we chose the best ball and each player hit her second shot from there. We followed this format, with each player hitting the best ball, until the ball was holed.
The game was followed by our monthly luncheon and meeting where our golf pro, Jeremy Dunkason, gave an informative talk. He offered some good tips on speed of play and informed us of new rules coming up in 2019. It is nice to be kept abreast of what is happening in the world of golf.
After lunch our tournament chair, Muffy Bui, announced our winners. Congratulations to the three winning teams:
First Place Team: Trudy Leete, Collette Prentke and Madeleine Protsman
Second Place Team: Muffy Bui, Maggie Fleming and Debbie Stebbins
Third Place Team: Meg Eaton, Karen Griffin and Margie Joseph
50/50 Pot: Muffy Bui, Toddy Cutler and Susan Espana

Bailey Creek Women’s Golf Club
Luckily we had a beautiful day for golf this Wednesday. After our monthly meeting and introduction of our newest member, Donna Peragallo, we had a short program presented by our “newest golf pro,” Mike Mattingly. The subject was, “Getting a better understanding, the rules of golf.” We want to thank Mike and let him know how appreciative we are of his help, both at the driving range and with various questions we might have regarding rules. We also thank Kevin Hughes, Director of Golf, at Bailey Creek, for offering this addition to our club.
Our game of the day was “Low Net” and putts. The winners were a follows: Joan Dickerson, first place; Wynetta Regli, second place and lowest putts; and Mo Clark, third place.

Whitehawk Ladies Golf
On a bright sunny day the Whitehawk Ladies played Angel Ball. Two best balls of the foursome (NET) but the designated Angel’s ball could be used twice, once, or not at all. That being said the Angel was sitting on the bags of Chrit Hyatt, Karen Kibble, Sharon Russel and Laurie McKenzie. The next team to have the Angel partially on their bags was Victoria Cook, Kathleen Freidman, Chythia Thomas and JoAnn West. The end of play had the ladies eating birthday cake to celebrate Susan Erne’s birthday. A very enjoyable day for all.
