Copperopolis Weeend 2013

Sorry for the delay! I was out of town when this was sent to me for my daughters wedding!

Saddlecreek Tournament

Saddlecreek was the second tournament of a fabulous weekend in Angel’s Camp and Copperopolis.  We had 27 players and weather in the 80’s.  How do you plan that?

The format was CHA CHA CHA.  It is a four person team, the first hole you take the best net score, the second hole you take the two best net scores and so on.

Winning first place with a net team score of 127 went to
Sandy Gonzalez, Sarah Good, Kristina Ramos and Liz Riddle

Winning second place with a net team score of 135 went to
Della Gutierrez, Kathy Karste, Terri Malatesta and Rita Steele.

The two winners for closest to the pin were – Dee Touhy,
hole #7 with a distance of 14’10” and Kay Middleton, hole #14 at 29’

Low net for the day was Kristina Ramos with a 67

Low gross was Kathy Karste with an 84.

The lone chip-in goes to Kelly Tague.

Adding to our Birdie board is:

  • Kristina (on a mission) Ramos – holes 11 and 18
  • Sarah Good – hole 16
  • Allen Hodgkin – hole 12
  • Liz Riddle – hole 6

Congratulations and thank you to all that participated.  It was great fun to spend the weekend playing
golf with all our FWGA friends!


Rita Steele and Liz Riddle, tournament directors


The Copperopolis away golf weekend began on Saturday morning April 27 with 28 players teeing off at Greenhorn Creek in Angels Camp.  The weather was beautiful and the course in excellent shape.  Fast greens, lots of bunkers and some lovely water hazards made it a challenging but fun course.  The format of play was a round robin that gave each team member the opportunity to partner with all the members of the foursome.  It sounded like a complex format but once we saw the score cards it became clear and lots of fun.  Sally Panella and Betty McCabe were the tournament directors, Joan McCarthy and Sue Derby manned the registration table and Kathy Karste took the photos.

Prizes were awarded for:

First place team – Sue Derby, Pat Charles, Rita Steele and
Joan McCarthy

Second Place Team – Sarah Good, Kristina Ramos, Chris Jensen
and Kay Middleton

Closest to the Pin Hole 3 – Joan McCarthy

Closest to the Pin Hole 13 – Jan Moura

Low net was flighted in order to give everyone a chance at a

Low Net Flight A – Kristina Ramos with a 72

Low Net Flight B – Kay Middleton with a 71

Low Net Flight C – Alice Schultz with a 70

Low Gross – Kathy Karste with a 90

Kay Middleton had two chip-ins!
