Lady golfers took to the greens on June 1 for a game they call “Mutt and Jeff” where only the scores on the four par 3’s and the four par 5’s are counted as the game score. Flight A winners were: Low Gross, Susan Anderson (39); First Low Net, Chris Laxague (32); Second Low Net, Holly Anderson (34); and, Third Low Net, Carol Mitchell (net 35). In Flight B, the winners were: First Low Gross, Patty Monaghan (43); First Low Net, Mikie Burdick (30); Second Low Net, Lois Childress (34); and, Third Low Net, Tina Humphreys (35). There were “chip-ins” galore that day. Cynthia Baldwin, Mikie Burdick and Alaine Flynn each had one chip-in. Notably, Cynthia’s shot was a “super chip-in” from 88 yards out for an eagle 3 on the par 5 seventh hole!
