Whitehawk Ranch Ladies Golf Club
Today’s game was “Funny Ball” format for 19 ladies. Each lady played her own ball except on every assigned fourth hole she had to play the designated Funny Ball. This assignment was met with some dread, some angst, sometimes disappointment, and many times elation. If that ball was lost, the team lost its advantage which was being able to reduce that person’s net score by one. The team scores consisted of two best net balls of the foursome on each hole.
Each team played all 18 holes without losing that ball. The happiest teams were these: First place team was Marcia Zeigler, Jenine Fraser, Patsy Purvis and a blind draw; Second place went to Toni Dick, Ann Verutti, Joann West and Arline Simpson. The cash in the Chip In jar was split between Sharon Russell and Toni Dick. Nice playing, ladies.
Graeagle Meadows Monday Madness

The winning team was made up of Jim Adams, Wally Walker, Bob McIlroy and Joel Patterson with a score of 151. In this format par is 180, therefore they were 29 strokes under par. This was in large part due to Jim Adams, who is a 9 handicap, shooting a gross score of 73. Congratulations go out to Jim Adams, and his new set of clubs. Obviously, Jim received a good deal of help from his playing partners. Second place went to theteam of Ron Tobler, Dwayne Austin, Bill Smidt and Tom Gossett with a score of 152.

If the team loses the orange ball, the team is disqualified. Two teams lost the orange ball and were disqualified.
