On Oct. 13, the Chiefland Women's Golf Association had 20 members play the first round of a two-round tournament. The second game was played on Oct. 20.

This competition is called “Eclectic,” since the second score is kept on the same card that was used this week. After the two rounds are complete, each player will choose the lowest score on each hole and then deduct their full handicap. 

The winners of this tournament will be announced after completion of both rounds.  We had nine ladies come in with a chip-in during their round. This is a record number of winners who will split the chip-in “kitty.” Carol Healy, Babs Powell and Marilee Leonard had chip-ins that resulted in a birdie. 

Barbara Zumwalt, Betty Butler, Pat Renaud, Jan Hendrix, Freida Martin and Denise Boyle all had chip-ins during their day of play. The greens are a lot faster than normal, so not having to putt on a slippery green is fantastic. 

The Board of Directors has been busy for months preparing for the 33rd Annual Rye Grass Tournament to be held Oct. 21-24. The Ladies Association will be busy during these four days in preparing sandwiches, helping to keep score and doing as much as we can to help this be the best Rye Grass. 

 Our golf course was built during the mid 1970s, and we are proud that this tournament has been an annual event for 33 years. We will have approximately 200 men and women playing in this years' competition. Arma Beauchamp is still helping to keep score and she was one of the ladies to start the Ladies Association when the course was first opened.
