Golf Results for the week of 7/2/2014
Another beautiful day on the links. The ladies at Whitehawk played “Whack & Hack.” Two best balls net — one low net plus one high net equaled the team score.
By now you are familiar with the name Barbara Competello (was on the winning team the last two Tuesdays.) Well, Lynn Smith and Virgina Luhring carried her to today to win first place. Coming in second was the team of Toni Dick (won chip-in money), Diane Romig and Ann Veruti.
Next week we will celebrate the 4th of July playing the game of Red,White and Blue — better known as flag day.
It was only six days after the first day of summer, but it felt like winter again to the Lake Almanor West ladies on Thursday, June 26. Bundled up against the freezing cold day, the 18-hole group played for low net. Kathy Doms was first with a score of 69. She got a birdie on hole number 12. Kathi Shennan also had 69 but took second after the tie breaker. She had a chip-in on number 16. Karen Trattt took third place with a 7l. Caroyln Wilhoit was the winner of the nine hole group.
After the game, everyone warmed up in the clubhouse restaurant with a cup of Mike’s wonderful minestrone soup which was included with their lunch orders. Thank you, Mike!
