Graeagle Women’s Golf Club

The annual Aces of Aces Playoff hosted by the Graeagle Meadows Women’s Golf Club took place Sept. 29. Each month during the golf season, GMWGC holds an Ace of Aces Qualifier, where the low gross and low net winners qualify to play in the annual Playoff.  Congratulations went out to the 2022 Low Gross Winner, Cynthia Baldwin, who had a score of 84, and to 2022 Low Net Winner, Cathy Churchill, with a net score of 72.

GMWGC’s annual Turd Tournament was held Oct. 6th.  This is a fun and funky Halloween-themed tournament includes many “tricks” and “treats.”  The tournament name comes from the mud “turds” that are left on the fairways after the annual aeration (plugging) of the fairways occurs.   The First-Place winner, and 2022 Turd Queen, was Patty Monaghan, with a net score of 65.  The winning team, with a team score of 212, included:  Kathy Crawford, Kathleen Friedman, Sharon Russell and Chris Spencer.  Play was followed by the annual Awards Luncheon, a lovely buffet at The Restaurant at Graeagle Meadows.  Twenty-eight players participated in the Turd Tournament, and 32 members attended the Awards Luncheon.

The following year-long winners were announced at the Awards Luncheon:

Birdies:  A total of 63 gross Birdies were made by 18 GMWGC members.  The big winners are Debbie Fuetsch (12 Birdies); Michelle Violet (8 Birdies); and Cynthia Baldwin (5 Birdies).

Chip-ins:  There were a total of 38 chip-ins this season.  First Place went to Alaine Flynn (8 chip-ins); and Second Place was a tie between Debbie Fuetsch and Renee Miller (both women made 4 chip-ins each).

Eclectic (a year-long competition in which the player’s best score on each hole over the season constitutes her Eclectic score; for the net score the player’s end of year handicap is subtracted).  The Low Gross Winners are, First Place Debbie Fuetsch (59); Second Place is Michele Violett (65); and Third Place is Cynthia Baldwin (67).  Low Net Winners are First Place Mikie Burdick (net 45); Second Place is a tie between Teresa Becker and Nancy Linch (both with net 45).

Graeagle Men’s Golf Association

The Graeagle Men’s Golf Association (GMGA) Play Day Oct. 5 saw 20 players compete in a two-man game plus skins.  The format was the better net ball of the twosome on the first six holes, both net balls on the next six holes, and for the last six holes, each player was assigned (In-The-Box) three holes where only their net score counted toward the team score.  First Place was won by the team of Dan Anderson/Jim Oster with a score of 92. Second Place was a tie between the teams of Norm Nichols/Grant Mayfield and Larry Gregg/Dave Goodwin, both with scores of 93.  Fourth Place was won by the team of Jim Reynolds/Steve Petersen with a score of 94. There were six skins awarded. Two went to Jim Oster and one each went to Jack Gilbert, Mike Gibson, Jim Reynolds, and Larry Gregg.

Nineteen players competed in GMGA’s Play Day Oct. 7 in ideal weather conditions.  The format for the day was better net ball of the twosome on the par fours, and both net balls on the par threes and fives, plus skins.  There was a tie for First Place between the team of Grant Mayfield/Dave McDonald, and the team of Nate Coats/Ron Deicke, both with scores of 94.  Third Place was won by the team of Steve Peterson/Jim Oster with a net score of 97.  Fourth place was won by the team of Norm Miller/Andy Knudson with a net score of 98. There were 7 skins awarded.
