FWGA’s May tournament was held on Sunday, May 22, at Blue Rock Golf Course in Vallejo. Twenty-four enthusiastic players making up six teams turned out on a breezy cool day of fun on the East Course. The format of play was Cha-Cha-Cha ~ a new game for some of the players… so after a bit of last minute touch-ups to the scorecards, play started on time and the pace of play was great. The format consisted of the lowest net score of each team on the first hole, the two lowest net scores on the second hole, and the three lowest scores on the third hole. On the fourth hole it was back to the one lowest score and so forth throughout the round. The lowest team score was the winner.
First place winners went to Terri Malatesta, Therese Johnson, Sally Panella and Ruta Rudistill.
Second place winners went to Liz Riddle, Cindi Barni, Natalie Inouye and Ann Cain.
Third place winners were Pat Charlie, April Kenyon, Betty McCabe and Jan Moura.
Closest to the pin on the eighth hole went to Wendy Chu Ngoy at 9 ft.11 in. Closest to the pin the the sixteenth hole went to Ann Cain at 3 ft. 11 in.
Longest drive on the third hole went to April Kenyon. Lowest gross score was April Kenyon with a 90; lowest net score was Wendy Chu Ngoy with a 73. Linda Dobb won a chip-in, and we grossed $39.00 in the chip-in jar for charity.
After a great day on the links, Joan McCarthy announced the winners in the cafe before our drive home. Special thanks to all the volunteers who made it a wonderful day at the course: Joan McCarthy and Loraine Ward Theroux, Tournament Hosts; Alleen Hodgkin, Tournament Director; Liz Riddle and Pat White handled scoring; Alleen Hodgkin and Mindi Canner on registration, and Betty McCabe served as photographer.
