Chip-ins and birdies highlight latest CWGA tourney

-A A +A

The Chiefland Women’s Golf Association played a game on Oct. 26, 2011, where prizes were awarded to the Low Gross winner and Low Net winner in each of the three flights.  Prizes are also awarded to players who have chip-ins during their rounds.

 The Chiefland Golf Course is considered “long” for the average woman golfer. Even though the ladies red tees are forward, it is hard to reach the greens in regulation. So, when one of our members gets a chip-in from off the green, it is momentous. 

 This week, we had three ladies not only get chip-ins, they chipped in for birdies at the same time.  Adrienne Snyder scored a birdie four on the par five hole No. 9.  The greens have just been covered with rye grass seed and sand for the winter months, so not having to “putt” at all is a bonus.

 Barbara Zumwalt’s shout of joy on hole No. 5 could be heard all over the course.  Her ball went into the hole from off the green for a birdie on this par three hole.  Carol Healy scored a regular birdie on the par five No. 2 hole.  On the back nine, Carol chipped in for a birdie two on the par three hole No. 13. 

The Low Gross winner in the First Flight was Marilee Leonard with a score of 88.  Jeannie Clark took the Low Net prize with a great low net score of 68.

 Adrienne Snyder won the Low Gross prize in the Second Flight with a score of 96.  There was a tie for the Low Net prize in this flight with Maggie Knapp and Carol Healy both coming in with a net score of 75.

The winner of the Low Gross prize in the Third Flight was Janet True with a score of 110.  Low Net went to Denise Boyle with a score of 79.
