San Geronimo Tournament 2013

Once upon a time in the late morning fog, deep in the redwoods of San Geronimo a group called Forewomen played a game called golf.  Fighting their way out of deep sandy bunkers, battling on small greens with surrounding water and enchanted forests of giant redwoods these women persevered and conquered accumulating points by collecting eagles and birds for their stable(ford).

Leaders were honored and awarded by their fellow teammates for the following:

1st place with 118 points is Kathy Karste, Linda Dobb, Della Guttierrez and MeTin Cheung


2nd place with 110 points was Terri Malatesta, Doreen Monroe, Charlene Hastings and Meridith Wieland


Closest to the pin on #3 was Rita Steel  7’2”

Closest to the pin on #13 was Charlene Hastings  3’4”


Low Gross (85) – Kathy Karste

Low Net (70) – Della Gutierrez


Birdies captured – Kristina Ramos and Charlene Hastings

Chip in’s – Mimi Johnson-Jacobs, Liz Riddle, Kristina Ramos

Special thanks to Kathy Karste who captured it all on film, Meridith Wieland who helped with registration and Tami Waddell with scoring.

and Forewomen golfers lived happily ever after
