7/14/2010 - Whitehawk Ranch
Ladies Golf Club
It was a day of "O.N.E.S." at Whitehawk last Tuesday, which means that only the holes starting with one of those four letters, or half the holes, counted toward the game and each lady only received 50% of her handicap on those holes.
Virginia Luhring certainly helped herself and her partner Pamela Burke to their winning net 74. She shot a birdie on the par three-hole number eleven which gave her a net double eagle. Marcia Zeigler and Jill Zumwalt were team #2 with a net 75 and this was Mrs. Zumwalt's first day out with the Whitehawk ladies too. And Diane Romig and Denise Stein came in third with a net 76.
As for match play results, round 1 is now completed: Patty McNamara won her match against Lois LeGuennec; Denise Stein won her match against Marcia Zeigler; Cynthia Faulk won her match against Christy Randall and Lynn Smith won her match against Della Miller. The ladies must play both round 2 and round 3 of match play before the end of this month.
Again the tournament was a huge success. Both the Chimney Fund and Chester High School Sports, this year the ski and snow board team, will each receive over $2000. I want to thank all the green and tee-box sponsors, all the players and those who donated to the event — you are the people who make the donations to the charities happen.
After crossing Lake Oroville, which is pictured in the background, cyclists must grind out the 37-mile climb up to Bucks Lake before dropping back into Quincy. This climb must also be done in the heat of the afternoon with very little shade.
Many of the almost 200 cyclists that rode in the Summer Solstice Century last Saturday were full of praise for the event. "This ride's great," said a participant from Marin. "Everybody's so helpful and friendly." A considerable community effort went into the event, as 10 sponsors and more than 30 volunteers from the Quincy area supported the ride.
