    The Chiefland Women’s Golf Association had 25 ladies come out to play on Oct. 6. This is a record number of players for our group and several of our members have not yet arrived from up north.

We were successful in completing a game where the players are placed into flights according to their like handicaps, and the winners are the ones who play well enough to subtract their handicaps from their total scores, thus giving them the lowest net scores.
