On Monday, June 13, in the early evening, the ladies at Whitehawk gathered at Jenine Fraser’s lovely home to do pairings for the member/member tournament. After eating a variety of goodies, the tournament chair had people drawing names out of the bag for the pairings.

Graeagle Men’s Golf Association (GMGA)
Jack & Jill Tournament
The GMGA held their annual Jack & Jill Couples’ Tournament on Wednesday, July 16. The format for this tournament is Chapman Scotch. Under this format, each player tees off from their assigned tee, then each player plays a ball from the position where their partner’s tee shot came to rest. After each has played their second shot, the best shot is selected and the person who did not hit to that position plays the next shot, and it is alternate shot from there until the ball is holed. This format sometimes makes for some interesting conversation between the partners — usually a married couple. There were seven teams competing in the White/Red Tee Standard Division. The winning team in this Division was Jim and Bev Reynolds with a score of 64, second was Dan and Holly Anderson with a score of 68.
In the Combo Division there were 16 teams. The winners were Woody and Renee Miller with a score of 59; second was Marv and Jan Pierce with 64; third was a tie between Jim and Cheryl Brennan, Dennis and Alaine Flynn and Ron Eaton and Dee Walker with scores of 66.
