Bailey Creek Women’s Golf Club
The weather Sept. 13, was a bit cooler than usual, a nice break from the summer heat.
Our game of the day was “Evens,” counting only the even holes and using 1/2 of the handicaps. We had just a few of our regular golfers, but enjoyed the day as usual.
There was just one birdie for the day, by Joan Dickerson on Hole 8, who also took first place; second place was Jenni Cesarin; and third place went to Wynnetta Regli.
We managed to finish play just in time, as another thunder storm threatened to drench the golfers.
The course is in excellent condition and we look forward to another beautiful day of golf next week, as the season is quickly coming to an end.

The Wednesday Play Day on Sept. 13 was a two-man, one best ball game. George Fraser and Darrel Woods did a nice job of carding a 60, which took first place. There was a four-way tie for second place with several 62s. Second place finishers included Norm Miller and Bob McIroy, Dan Anderson and Leo Reihsen, Mike O’Rear and Jack Gilbert, Dennis Chegwin and Norm Miller (blind draw). Skins were won by Darrel Woods, Mike O’Rear and George Fraser.

LACC Women’s Golf Club May-Flower Scramble, a 4-person team game, was our tournament chair’s choice for the game on Tuesday, Sept. 12. There was plenty of laughter and joking among us, which always makes for an enjoyable round. The winning teams were:

Second Place — Trudy Leete, Peggy Lentz, Margie Joseph and Joan Johnson with a gross score of 87.

Whitehawk Ranch Men’s Club
The 2017 Whitehawk Ranch Men’s Club Championship concluded Sunday, Sept. 10. Our worthy champion, Rob Cook prevailed in a stirring final, edging Mario Garibotti, defending champion Bruce Voorhees, and our 2017 Handicap Champion Bert Walker.
Finishing behind Bert in the handicap event were Todd Miszner and Gene West. Great job, gentlemen. The most talked about shot of the final day was struck by past champion Jim Purvis who drove the green on the 366 yard first hole and recorded a seven. Okay, he landed on the practice putting green. But still a most unforgettable blow.
Thanks to pro Tad McCormick and staff and Marcie and her crew.
Special congratulations to pro Michael Reid who became a first time father Sunday. Congratulations likewise to mom Courtney a their healthy daughter.
Plumas Pines Women’s Golf Club
