Bailey Creek Women’s Golf Club
On July 12 the game of the day was “3-Person, 2-Net Best Ball.” What a fun game that was, with everyone enjoying the day, even if they weren’t the winners. Those lucky enough, talented enough, to win were as follows: Team 1, all three players taking first place, as this was a team effort, Joan Dickerson, Joyce Gronroos and Jenni Cesarin. Chip-ins were made by Joan Dickerson on Hole 14, and Ginger Birchfield on hole Hole 17 who shared a “pot.” Finishing the day was a birdie by Mary Craig on Hole 12.
Wednesday, July 19, was another beautiful day at Bailey Creek. Our game of the day was “Maid’s Quarters” and played the day following the LACC’s tournament. A few of us were eager, but a bit worn out from the previous play. That didn’t stop our winners from taking home the money. First place went to Ginger Birchfield, second place went to Joan Dickerson and third place was awarded to Donna White.
The chip-in pot was shared by quite a few, Ginger Birchfield, Hole 3 and a birdie on Hole 7; Jenni Cesarin, Hole 17; Donna White Hole 5 and Hole 17, with a birdie on Hole 17; and Diana Pallari, with chip in and birdie on Hole 8. Mo Clark also finished the day with a birdie on Hole 2.
It was quite an exciting day and we are looking forward to next Wednesday. Hope to see you then.
LACC Women’s Golf
Lake Almanor Country Club Women’s Golf Club held their annual Sugar Pine Golf Tournament on Tuesday, July 18. Fifty-six members and guests joined the fun playing in the “My Favorite Color is Wine” themed event. Tournament chairperson, Collette Prentke, and her many volunteer helpers did an outstanding job for us. The clubhouse and tee box decorations were perfect and included everything wine (even casks) and along with the usual water and sodas, they provided sangria, cheese and crackers at the turn.
Each participant received a tee prize of a uniquely charming and very useful golf purse with an LACC logo golf ball and tees inside. Member Jan Stillwell must have spent every minute of her spare time this winter making all of them for us. Thank you, Jan.
When we finished our game we enjoyed a luncheon at Clifford’s followed by the announcement of raffle prizewinners and tournament winners. There were too many raffle prizes to name them all, but they included an assortment of creative gift baskets and golf outings at several golf clubs.
Thank you to those who contributed and to those who solicited prizes. The main raffle prize included two nights at the Best Western Hilltop Inn, two $50 gift certificates to C.R. Gibbs American Grille and four rounds of golf at Riverview Golf & Country Club (package coordinated by Steve Gaines). The lucky winner of the prize was Nancy Dooly. Congratulations to you, Nancy.
The game format was four-lady teams using the two best net ball scores per team. The winners of the 2017 Sugar Pine Tournament were:
Merlot (1st) Flight — First Place, Sandy Mitchell, Mary Towns, Margaret Murgallis, Kathleen Mitchell; Second Place, Barbara Leonard, Jane Hilliard, Karen Holmstrom, Toddy Cutler; Third Place, Patty McNamara, Mary Craig, Trudy Leete, Susan Espana.
Chardonnay (2nd) Flight — First Place, Pat Drake, Janice Abrams, Joan Johnson, Carol Griswold; Second Place, Jessie King, Margie Joseph, Nancy Foote, Charlene Ferguson; Third Place, Karen Tratt, Muffy Bui, Debbie Stebbins, Linda Rawson.
Additional prizes were awarded for longest drive, most accurate drive, and closest to the pin. The winners were: Longest Drive — Mary Town; Most Accurate Drive — Kathleen Mitchell; and Closest To the Pin — Sandy Mitchell.
The “Filly Race” was the grand finale. It was a very fun format this year. Rather than having the top nine teams compete it was open to any of the four-lady teams who wanted to participate. Each team member was assigned a letter according to her handicap and players alternated shots in that order. Two teams were eliminated on the Hole 1, two teams were eliminated on the Hole 2 and one team was eliminated on the Hole 3. The final two teams continued until the winning team was determined.
The Filly Race winners were: First Place — Patty McNamara, Mary Craig, Trudy Leete and Susan Espana; Second Place — Nancy Dooly, Carolyn Willhoit, Dana Seandel and Diana Pallari; Third Place — Sandy Mitchell, Mary Towns, Margaret Murgallis and Kathleen Mitchell.
Congratulations to all of you well deserved winners. A special thank you to Collette and her support team of wonderful volunteers for their creative ideas and hard work. It was a great tournament enjoyed by all of us.
LACC Women’s Golf Club is open to women outside our community. We welcome new members and invite you to come join the fun. Please call our membership chairperson, Jessie King at 259-2896.
