Graeagle golfers keep swinging through July

Graeagle Women

The Thursday game on July 23 for the Graeagle Meadows Womens Golf Club members featured a game of “Best Nine,” in which each player selects her best gross score from two par threes, two par fives, and five par fours, then deducts one-half of her handicap for her game score.

Diane Forsberg took first place with a score of 27; second place, Holly Anderson (31); and, third place was a tie between Cathe Franck and Esther Rimbault, both with 32. The players thanked Mother Nature for a lovely, mild day.
