Bailey Creek Women
The Bailey Creek Women’s Club has had a busy August and is happy to welcome several new members. The BCWC welcomes guests and new members. For information contact Jenni Cesarin at 249-5346.
We begin this week’s report covering the annual Guys & Gals Couple’s Championship played Aug. 21, 22 and 25. What was billed as a two-day event actually resulted by necessity with half the field playing on Wednesday, the other half on Thursday, but culminating with everyone coming together on Sunday. There were 13 teams divided in two flights competing for low gross and low net, the low gross in flight one to be determined Couple’s Champions.
Round one was scored with better ball of the twosome while in round two, both balls counted. Taking first place for both low gross and low net in the second flight was the team of Jeff and Patty Monaghan. First flight winners, with both low gross and low net scores went to Jim and Bev Reynolds, crowned the new 2019 Couple’s Champions.
Celebrating a successful tournament, everyone gathered together following golf on Sunday at the Graeagle Picnic Grounds for a delicious chicken and rib BBQ dinner prepared by the club’s food and grill committee members.
Play on Wednesday, Aug. 28, saw 12 members of the club travel to Whitehawk Ranch for the final of four Home & Home tournaments held during the season. Members from each club were mixed with foursomes playing for low net and skins. Immediately following golf, lunch prepared from Marci’s Grill was served on the clubhouse deck. It’s believed the low net winner was Whitehawk member Gene West, who, by the way, shot a gross 72.
Meanwhile, back on the home course at Graeagle, another group played two man better ball from the combo tees. Taking first place with a net score of 56 was the team of Ron Easton and Darrell Woods. There was a tie for second place with John Grasso and Norm Nichols followed by Tom Taylor and Chuck Weidner, both teams with net 60. Skins were also a part of the game, a total of nine were awarded. Tom Taylor took two skins followed by one each for Norm Nichols, Bob McIlroy, Chuck Weidner, John Grasso, Bill Hopp, Darrell Woods and Jack Gilbert.
As the season rapidly draws down, the next major men’s club event will be the two-day club championships to be played Sept. 13 and 15. There will be flighted competition for Club, Senior and Super Senior titles, the overall Club and Senior championship played from the white tees while Super Seniors from the combo tees. At least 5 rounds must have been played in GMGA sanctioned events in 2019 prior to this event in order to compete for the titles. Look for results in the coming weeks.
