Whitehawk Ranch Ladies
There must be something in the mountain air these days, because we've had two hole-in-ones within the last week at Whitehawk Ranch.
On Labor Day Monday, Diane Romig had a hole-in-one on hole #16. Diane used her nine iron to approach the green with a center flag playing about 90 yards. The ball took just two bounces and then rolled right into the cup! Congratulations Diane! This is her second hole-in-one on #16 at Whitehawk ... her first one was four years ago.
Tuesday, the ladies played a reverse Cha-Cha-Cha game ... three balls counted on the first hole, then two balls on the second hole and only one ball counted on the third hole ... repeating this process through 18 holes.
The team of Patty McNamara, Jenine Fraser, Pam Cummings and Della Miller took first place with a combined low net of 122. Second place went to the team of Marcia Zeigler, Jean Haaf and Christy Randall, winning in a card playoff with a combined net score of 125.
Finally, match play has come to an exciting close for the Whitehawk Ranch ladies. Patty McNamara won her semi-final match against Marcia Zeigler to advance to the finals against Lynn Smith. Lynn was the only player to win all three of her matches and advance to the finals and she continued that trend in her final match.
It was a very chilly day out on the links, but Lynn Smith continued to be red hot ... carrying the upperhand in the match all through play and securing her winning title on hole #16 against Patty McNamara with a 4 and 2 victory. This is Lynn's third match play title and her second consecutive win at Whitehawk. Big Congratulations go out to Lynn Smith, our Whitehawk Ranch match play winner, again!
The final day of the three-day Club Championship was held Tuesday, Sept. 7. Twelve people competed in the event. Winning the 2010 Club Championship was Renee Walker, who, after tying on hole 18 with Janet Holladay won the event in a two-hole playoff.

The entire group (including the follow the field players) also completed in the game of the day - which was low gross and low net. Winning first flight, low gross was Renee Walker, with first low net won by Annie Meyer and second low net won by Janet Holladay. In the Second Flight, winning low gross was Lorraine Cornish with Shirley Agnos winning first low net and Jennifer Zumbro winning second low net.

Second place winning team members were Ralph Cote, Loren Lindner, and Leo Sorosinski.

The Sept. 2 Scramble was a fun time for all. We played a different format alternating between blues and whites and whites and reds.
For the first time in quite a while we had no chip-offs. First place went to Bob McIlroy, Jeff Stevens and Tom Gossett, second was Don Gustafson, Ron Ridge, Jim Bryant and Darel Joseph, and third - but no means least - was Greg Stevens, Gary Stevens, and Robert Turcotte.
The closest to the pin was won by Robert Turcotte, while Greg Stevens turned in the longest drive. We probably only have four more scrambles, so now is the time to give it a shot.
The Ladies Bye Bye Birdies are still meeting at 9 a.m. on Tuesdays, and though we are few - we are mighty and we have a great time.
Our Big 6 is now scheduled for Oct. 2. More info to follow.
The days are getting shorter, and it was a little overcast, we were able to field seven teams for our Sept. 9 Scramble. It was an enthusiastic bunch. The team of Mike Beatty, Ken George, Eric John and Jeff Stevens came in first at 4 under, followed by Greg Stevens, Jimmy LaPlante, Loren Lindner and Gary Hughes at 3 under, and third place went to Don Guess, Keith Linford, Donovan Beatty and Auston Linford.
Closest to the pin went to Mike Ruggeri and Longest drive was won by Jeff Stevens.
We hope to have three more scrambles with our last one falling on Sept. 30. A good time is had by all, so come on out and give us a try.
The "Big 6" tournament is being held on Saturday, October 2, call for more information - 284-6204.
Eleven teams participated in the game of Bead String Shamble. The four-member teams played a scramble with a bit of a "bling" twist as each team was given a string of beads to be used four times by each player during the game.
The beads were utilized to better the ball position by approximately 18 inches enabling the ladies to possibly get out of the rough or sand or improve the position of their putts. Needless to say, the beads proved to be very valuable to the ladies.
The first place team winners were Kathy Chuchel, Jessie King, Peggy Lentz, and Marie Phillips. Coming in second place was the team of Karen Griffin, Judy Honsaker, Amanda Hosman, and Trudy Leete.
There was a three-way tie for third place among the team of Nancy Foote, Sue Hudson, Lee Hunter, and Collette Prentke; the team of Darlene Donaldson, Meg Eaton, Jude Morse; and the team of Mary Ann Broderick, Judie Crain, Martha Herr, and Jane Hilliard.
Congratulations ladies, and don't forget those precious gems need to be returned to the vault for next time!
