Monterey Weekend 2013

San Juan Oaks - Rally for the Cure
Day one of our annual 3 day away tournament on the Monterey peninsula began with gorgeous weather at San Juan Oaks in Hollister. This is one of those courses that looks like it should be easy, but then it comes back to "bite" you. We tried a slightly different game of Cha-Cha-Cha taking 3 best net balls on the par 3's, 2 best net on the 4's, and 1 best net on the difficult long par 5's. Our winners were;

1st place team: April Kenyon, Kay Middleton, Pat White and Jan Moura

2013 055
2nd place team: Liz Riddle, Me Tin Cheung, Michele Ross and Veronica Pino

2013 053

The closest to the flagstick on 4 holes were:
#6 Kelly Tague 14'8"
#8 Kay Middleton 7'4"
#12 Julie Campioti 12'0"
#16 Me Tin Cheung 7'2"
2013 056

Chip-Ins: Jan Moura and Veronica Pino
2013 052

Birdies were made by: Julie Campiotti (2), Deb Ortega, Michele Ross, Terri Malatesta, Kathy Karste and Liz Riddle

This was also our annual Rally for the Cure tournament. We proudly raised $420 and we had a drawing for two prizes. Pat Tuohy won the ladies' Cleveland fairway wood and he promptly donated it to the upcoming Breast Cancer Benefit Tournament being held at San Ramon Golf Club on 10/8. Betty McCabe won the second drawing for a gift certificate to the San Juan Oaks pro shop.

All the prizes we're announced at the party held in the early evening at the Best Western in Monterey where April Kenyon, the tournament director for Day 2 at Pasadera, gave her famous/infamous explanation of the rules to play golf Bingo.

If it sounds like we had a fantastic time, we did. See you all there next year.

Dee and Kay.

Pasadera Country Club

WOW!  Who would have guessed what a beautiful and challenging course this is.   Check out the pictures for hole  #14.  You must hit over the canyon approximately 110 yards (from the red tees) onto a green that is about  25 yards across.  It was a little intimidating. LOL
We had 24 players and the format was BINGO hosted by April Kenyon.  It is not as easy as it sounds, especially on this course.  You needed to score net pars, birdies, or eagles to X out your hole number or ForeWomen icon. 
The first place with a team score of 7 bingos:  Michelle Ross, Kay Middleton, Rita Steele and Sandy Gonzales

Second place with a team score of 4 bingos: Julie Campiotti, Kathy Karste, Deb Ortega and Terri Malatesta

As we rolled into the club house we met with the 9 hole players who had joined with The First Tee of Oakland players and the restaurant was buzzing with excitement! Thank you to Gail, Jen and Dee for assisting with the scoring and Terri Malatesta, Pat White, Me Tin and April for registration and photo's. The format was a two person team Odds and Evens.
