Bailey Creek Women
The official ending to our “golf season” is always a sad time, but who could possibly complain about the weather here at Bailey Creek Golf Course. The day was beautiful and there was a great turn out.
The game started as a “Scramble” with 3 and 4 person teams and ended with a fabulous fun filled “Steak BBQ” at the home of Ed and Donna White’s on the 2nd Green. Our “Grilling Chef’s” were Ed White with the help of Bill Barry and the steaks were done to perfection! A list of “pot luck” dishes rounded out the menu.
As to golf results, the winning team was Kym Coco, Karen Treanor and Joyce Gronroos, who had an exceptional day of putting, and Kym Coco who had a chip-in birdie on hole #10.
Also announced were our club champions, “Low Gross” champion Ginger Birchfield and “Low Net” champion Barbara Pescio, who is also our most improved player. Congratulations to both ladies.
To finish off the festivities is the announcement of the PWGA results of play day at Fall River Mills Course, Mo Clark, 1st place in her flight and CeciDale-Cesmat 3rd place in her flight. Joan Dickerson and Ginger Birchfield came in 3rd in their flight at River View Invitational in Redding.
What a wonderful season we have had and will look forward to next spring with great memories from this season.
Graeagle Meadows Men
The season is winding down for GMGA and we have come to our final three events of the season. On Sunday, Sept. 22, there was the Big Chief Couples Tournament and on Sept. 25, the Fall Meeting was held, followed by a 2-man scramble.
The winners of the Big Chief Couples Tournament for Flight-1 were Grant Mayfield and Priscilla Piper, with a score of 70, and close behind in second place were Jim and Bev Reynolds with a score of 73.
In Flight-2 first place was taken by Bert Bellows and Kathy Kahlar, with a score of 69, and close on their heels were David and Cathy Macdonald having a score of 71.
Looking ahead we have our final tournament, which is a cross county, called the Kinkley Klassic, to be held Oct. 16. In this format the course is rearranged so that you get to see Graeagle Meadows in a way not typically seen. An example, the first hole is set up such that you tee from the first tee, but your target is the second green. It is a grand finale for the season and is always great fun.
