Rancho Solano Tournament

Tournament season is off and running!  And so is the race for Club Championships!  What a great day!  28 FWGA members showed up in slightly cool and damp weather ready to play some golf. And play they did!
  Thanks to Piper Shaull the tournament director for organizing the day!  The game for the day was 2 person best ball, which meant we were in teams of two and only one net ball per team counted per hole.  In Flight A Charlene Hastings and Alleen Hodgkins took first with a 57! and 2nd went to Kay Middleton and Pat White with a 66.

Chip ins were made by Sarah Good, Kay Middleton and Charlene Hastings. Low Gross went to Charlene Hastings with an 84 and Low Net went to Della Guiterrez with a 64.  Be sure to check out the leaderboards for Club and Players Championships.  And don't forget the season long Birdie Board.  Be sure to check out the upcoming tournaments and sign up.  You don't have to have a low handicap or be trying for the Club Championships, just want to have some fun and maybe win something. 

Here are some other pictures from the day. Thank you Kathy Karste for the great pictures!
