FWGA’s first away golf trip was held Saturday, April 30th at Sequoia Woods in Arnold. The weather was a little windy and brisk, but otherwise it was a beautiful day. There were 27 players and the tournament game played was 4 Suits. Each player drew a card with one of the suits and if their card matched the card in the envelope left on the hole that was the team score for that hole. It was a fun format because no one knew if their score would count until the end of that hole.
First place went to Julie Campiotti, Terri Malatesta, Deb and Ray Ortega. Second place was Alleen Hodgkin, Mindi Canner, Jim and Janis Salvi. Third place was a card off. Dee and Pat Touey, Ray and Judy Giles won over Liz Riddle, Joan MaCarthy, Tami Waddell and Sandy Prairie.
Low Gross went to member April Kenyon with an 85, while guest Ray Giles was 81. Low net was Della Gutierrez at 66.
Closest to the pin, Flight A, was Tami Waddell, and Flight B, was Joan McCarthy. There were 4 Birdies for the day; Liz Riddle 2, Terri Malatesta 2, and Tami Waddell 1.
After the game, everyone gathered at the house shared by Liz, Della, Cheryl, and Alleen. Liz made up some of her famous cocktails. Cheryl provided the munchies. Della, who is a chef made the most delicious dinner of pulled pork sandwiches, coldslaw, baked beans, greens and corn on the cob……so good!! For dessert, Alleen made sweet rum cakes and of course, Liz's golf-designed cookies. Alice Schultz recorded the fun as the event photographer.
Great fun playing golf with a wonderful group of FWGA ladies and their guests!
Thanks again to everyone who made this such a great event, especially to our tournament coordinators Betty McCabe and Sally Panella.
