April 2012

Another FWGA tournament is in the bag.  Lots of fun was had, balls lost in fields of daisies, water and mud in bunkers and hazards that eat balls!  But beside all of that a great day was had by all and it even tried to warm up.

Charlene Hastings won Low Gross in the Championship Flight with an 86.


Piper Shaull won Low Net with a 72.


The rest of the field played 2 person Best Ball.  The first place team was Kelly Tague and Jan Moura with a 64.


Second place went to Liz Riddle and Sandy Gonzalez.


Third place went to Mimi Jacobs-Johnson and Betty McCabe


Tami Waddell took closest to the pin on both holes.  Her foursome didn't want to measure her 37 foot one since they were so sure someone would get closer!


Piper Shaull posted the scores of those competing for Players and Club Championship on the Leaderboards.


Kristina Ramos had 2 birdies and Piper Shaull had one.  Check out the Birdie Board for the season totals.

BE sure to check out the rest of the pictures at Blue Rock Springs.

Be sure to mark your calendar for our fun Monterey Weekend, September 15-17.  3 days of fun golf, parties and friends.



Franklin Canyon Tournament

Another beautiful day on the Golf Course.  A little worried the day before as the rain poured down but Sunday dawned bright and sunny, with cart path only being the only result of the rain.   A great tournament hosted by our twin fashion models - Sally and Betty.

The format for the day was an individual game of Three Little Piggies.  Players got to throw out their worse three holes(net)  Wouldn't we like to do that every round?

Two flights were awarded prizes.  For Flight A, Michelle Ross took Low Gross overall with an 80 which included 2 birdies - way to go Michelle.

Michelle beat out Kristina Ramos for first place in Flight A for Three Little Piggies by a cardoff.

Tami Waddell took third and Linda Rothchild fourth with a three way card off for fourth.


Piper Shaull won longest drive in the fairway for Flight A.  Dee Tuohy won closest to the pin.

For Flight B, First Place for Three Little Piggies went to a card off between Della Gutierrez and Linda Dobb, with Della taking first.


Kay Middleton took 3rd place in Flight B as well as Low Gross in Flight B and Longest Drive!  Way to go Kay!

Eleanor McGregor took 4th in Flight B.
