The Waukewan Ladies were back on the course for the first sunny day of the season. The ladies cheered as they teed off on the back nine. Teams of 4 and a game of "Count Your Putts" was the plan of attack. Two best putts per hole netted the winning team $10 per player with a total of only 27 putts. Congratulations to the team of: Jan Lefebvre, Ellen Vail, Gloria Ferland, and Karen Bourgeois. Not far behind, the second place team with 28 putts included Gerry McGillicuddy, Sue Connelly, Brenda Trudeau, and Margie Kreitler. Nicely done.
Four contest holes included: #16, Closest to the Pin won by Val Langbehn with a drive that left the ball 20' 11" from the flag. Three ladies landed on #14 on 2 shots: Gerry McGillicuddy, Gloria Ferland, and Denise Doyle. A drawing was held and Gerry McGillicuddy walked away with the prize. Lynn Seley ( with a handicap of 17 and above) had a fabulous drive on #15, while Jan Pano ( handicap 16 and below) showed her prowess for longest drive on #13. Great Shots.
A great day for Gerry Mcgillicuddy who scored 2 birdies. A 10 foot putt on #12 and a fabulous 24 foot putt on #14. One Chip-In was captured on Tuesday by Jane Pillsbury. A fabulous 30 foot chip would have netted Jane prize money...but she did not remember to "chip-in" to the pot.
Congratulations go to 7 ladies shooting 50 and below. Gerry McGillicuddy with a 46, Laurie Fox shot 47, Gloria Ferland a 48, and a score of 50 for Charlotte Gregory, Jan Pano, Brenda Trudeau, and Val Langbehn.
The Waukewan Ladies will be back on the course next week for another challenging game. The league is in the midst of planning the 2015 Waukewan Ladies League Invitational, with a theme of "IN THE PINK!" on September 9.
