Ladies hold first-ever scramble in 40th edition of the annual Chiefland tournament

The 40th Annual Rye Grass Invitational Tournament held its ladies round Oct. 13 and Oct. 14, and added a Ladies Scramble for the first time in its history on the morning of the opening day (Oct. 12) at the Chiefland Golf and Country Club.


Eighteen ladies participated and competed well in the first-time scramble. The lowest grossing team turned in a four-over-par 76, while the lowest net group fired a 67.

The ladies division played its first round of the tournament the next day, with similarly competitive results, as they battled the humidity and gusty winds.

Betty Beck and Terry Harris each shot a two-day low of 142, with Beck claiming the win on a tiebreaker; the decisive hole was Beck’s par on No. 17.

Donna Schaffer narrowly trailed the pair with a 143 to finish third.
