Graeagle Meadows Women’s Golf Club
On May 25,GMWGC members who were not participating in the second round of the Three Club Eclectic competed in the game of “Hate ‘Em,” in which each player, before teeing off, selected her three most hated holes. Her score on those holes became an automatic par, and her full handicap was then deducted from the 18-hole total. First place went to Linda Bilger, with a net 66; Lois Childress took second place, with a net 68; and in third place was Susan Wiese, with a net 74.
On June 1,the players in each group took turns being the”Hero.” On each hole one player’s score was highlighted, and her score could count once, twice or not at all toward the team’s two best net scores for that hole. The first place team, with a score of 119,included Linda Bilger, Dottie Hattich, Dee Walker and a blind draw; the second place team of Lois Childress, Debbie Fuetsch, Diane Trainor and a blind draw carded 120; and in third place, with 125, was the team of Annie Fischer, Alaine Flynn, Priscilla Piper and a blind draw (the blind draws were necessitated by several last-minute cancellations).
