The Waukewan Ladies were delighted to play the final round for the season on August 26, a beautiful day filled with sunshine. The game of the day was a Best Ball Scramble. 47 women competed and the winning team scored an even par of 36. These 4 ladies won a trip to the prize table: Janet Pano, Carol Ashton, Karen Bourgeois, and Nancy Vercauteren.
The four contest holes included Closest to the Pin in 2 shots on hole 14 and Carol Ashton took the prize landing only 2' 11" from the hole. The woman who won the contest on 10 was Bobbie Fairman who hit her ball closest to the pond...without going in. Whew...that was close! Val Langbehn clocked it with the longest drive on 13, while Sharon Corcoran landed closest to the pin on 11, only 20' 11" from the hole.
Two lucky women shared the chip-in pot; Pat Armstrong on 18 and Lynn Allen also on 18. They each walked away with over $10. Mary Dickerson won a trip to the birdie tree on 12.
For the second time in just a few weeks Pat Armstrong won the 50/50 raffle of $47. She must have a lucky charm!
