2014 Poppy Hills Tournament

On Monday 9/15/14, the Fore Women Golf Group had an opportunity to play the newly renovated Poppy Hills Golf Course in Pebble Beach, CA as the third tournament of the weekend.  Poppy Hills underwent an extensive renovation beginning in March of 2013 centered around water conservation, primarily by improving irrigation and drainage. Robert Trent Jones Jr. returned to Poppy Hills with his design firm, and created a firm, fast and fun course that unfolds seamlessly through the stunning Del Monte Forest.  WOW it was pretty!    

The weather was fantastic for the tournament format of a Cha-Cha-ChaIn the 4-Man Cha-Cha-Cha, each member of the team plays his or her ball throughout. But a 3-hole rotation exists for determining how many net scores are used to create the team score. On the first hole (cha), the one low ball counts as the team score. On the second hole (cha-cha), the two low balls combined count as the team score. On the third hole (cha-cha-cha), the three low balls combined count as the team score. The rotation starts over on the fourth hole.

Awards went to the first place team of Sarah Good, Kristina Ramos, Jan Moura and Kelly Tague with a score of 124. Second place team was awarded to Kay Middleton, Chris Jensen, Della Gutierrez, and April Kenyon with a score of 131. We also awarded Low Gross to Kristina Ramos with an 87! Low Net went to Sarah Good with a 73.  We had 2 Closest to the pin! On hole #6, Sarah Good was 8’ 8.5” from the pin and on hole #11 Ray Giles was only 2’ 10.5” from the pin!  Kristina Ramos had a birdie and Chris Jensen had a Chip In.

Congratulations to all and thank you to Tournament Director Therese Johnson for a great outing!
