Mare Island Tournament 2013 - The Legend of the Lone Ranger

On July 13th, FWGA tells the legend of the Lone Ranger.  It started on a cool Saturday morning at Mare Island golf course with 23 sharp shooters looking to fight and win over injustice of the oldest course west of the Mississippi.

In the Lone Ranger format, two scores per hole were added together for the team score. Here's the catch: One of those two scores must be from the Lone Ranger, plus the lowest net score of the other three players on the team. 

The day warmed up and the battle began.  Our first place team shooting silver bullets with a score of 134 was:  Betty McCabe, Alleen Hodgkin, Piper Shaull and Linda Dobb.  The second place team of 138 was:  Tami Waddell, Kay Middleton, Shirley Walker and Sharon Greene.

We had two flights for the following:

Low Gross, A flight:  April Kenyon - 84

Low Gross, B flight:  Denise Qualls - 101

Low Net, A flight:  Kristina Ramos – 70

Low Net, B flight:  Linda Dobb – 71

Closest to the pin on 17:  Flight A – Tami Waddell 8’11”, Flight B – Kay Middleton 9’5”

Birdies:  Liz Riddle-Holes 2 & 10, Piper Shaull-Hole 6

Chip In’s:  Alleen Hodgkin #11, Piper Shaull #6, Shirley Walker #8

Congratulations to everyone and thanks for coming out and playing!

Special thanks to Meridith Wieland and Della Gutierrez for volunteering to help with registration and scoring.  Your federal peace officer was Liz Riddle.

HI-YO, Silver and Away!  Who were those masked women anyway?

Boundary Oak Tournament 2013 Triple Digit Degree Golf

We had a great turnout for the Boundary Oak Tournament despite the 100+ degree weather. Whack and Hack was the game we played with posting a high/ low score for each team unless there was a Net Birdie – then there were two low scores posted. The winning Team for Flight A was Piper Shaull, Liz Riddle and Della Gutierrez.The Flight B winning team was Rita Steele, Betty McCabe, Shirley Walker and Linda Dobb. Congratulations to those ladies. (many left early due to heat exhaustion!)



Low Gross was Piper Shaull (85) and Low Net was Della Gutierrez (68). We had several birdies, Kristina, Dee, Pat, and Meredith, and chip ins as well. Closest to the Pin was Kristina Ramos. There was also a side bet of One Putt/No Putt which was a contribution to our charity STAND. The winners of this portion of the tournament all received a Cookie Bouquet made by our Tournament Director, Liz Riddle.

I wish to express special thanks to the FWGA members who supported STAND at our Boundary Oaks tournament. We had an amazing amount of donations -  STAND is receiving $485 in gift certificates, $335 in cash and other miscellaneous household items which were donated.  Awesome Ladies!

Thanks to all the volunteers and the ladies who made it through the day.
