On Saturday, August 16, there was no need to ask for better weather. It was an absolutely beautiful day at Monarch Bay. The sun was shining, the breezes were mild, the fox was checking out the cart goodies, and the golfers were swinging in partnership with the wonderful girls from The 1st Tee of Oakland.
The 18-hole tournament directors were Linda Dobb and Judith Coleman-Cohen. The format was “Mutt & Jeff.” Net scores were obtained and totaled for each team on all par 3s and par 5s.
The 1st Place winning team was Carol Papke, Wendy Ngoy, and Kelly Tague with a net combined of 93. 2nd Place went to the team of Liz Riddle, Sandy Gonzales, and Della Guiterrez, with a 95. Both Low Gross and Low Net went to Jen Shaull. Jen’s gross score for the day was 83, and her net score was 67. Great job Jen!
One of our 1st Tee girls, Jada Delaney, won the “Closest to the Pin” contest. Her ball on the 10th hole landed 8’2” from the pin…very inspirational. It was also reported that Jada hit a 241 yard drive on the 11th hole … even more inspirational!
Della Guiterrez and our 1st Tee Player, Jada Delaney, had the only reported Birdies for the day, but not to be outdone, Jen Shull shot an Eagle on the 2nd hole. Unfortunately no chip-ins were reported.
Finally, our Director of Tournaments, Liz Riddle, put together random “Combined Teams,” consisting of players from both the 9-Hole and 18-Hole groups. Net scores from each team were then totaled and the winning Combined Team was Mary Beth Hodge, Teri Erickson, Judith Coleman-Cohen, and Myrese Jackson from The 1st Tee of Oakland. We also had two winners of cookie bouquets, made and donated by Liz Riddle. Both prizes were awarded via a drawing to 9-hole players, Mary Beth Hodge and Yvonne Lee.
A huge thanks goes out to everyone who participated in both the 9-hole and 18-hole tournaments. Congratulations to the winners and be sure to check out the pictures on FWGA Facebook.
All-in-all, it was a great golfing event, and we hope even more of you will join us next year.
