CENTER HARBOR — The weather could not have been better for the Waukewan Ladies League play on July 31. The game was for Two Best Quota Points on the challenging back nine.
The players were tasked with obtaining their assigned quota points and then achieving points above their handicap requirement. Points range from six points for an eagle to one point for a double bogie.
The team of Janet Pano, Brenda Trudeau, Christine Nassor and Anne Sweeney took first place with a total accumulation of 19 points. Great playing by these ladies!
Nor far behind was the second-place team of Carol Ashton, Laura Arnstein, Jennifer Lawson and Lorraine Rosenblatt, which posted 12 points.
Contest holes were 13 and 14. Denise Doyle put her drive in the fairway for the longest drive on 13. Janet Pano got her win on 14, putting her second shot 25 ½ inches for closest-to-the-pin. They both selected prizes for their wins.
The ladies were in the hunt for birdies and chip-ins. Hole 17 seemed to be popular with the ladies. Christine Nassor and Denise Doyle had birdies on this par five hole. Gerry McGillicuddy chipped in on 17 which also gave her a birdie. Barb Barbuto had her chip-in on 11 and provided her with a birdie. Janet Pano birdied number 14 and Anne Sweeney chipped in on number 10. Outstanding playing, ladies!
Once again, there were many ladies posting scores of 50 and below. Betsy Cox and Charlotte Gregory shot a 50, Laura Arnstein a 49. Janet Pano, Brenda Trudeau, Christine Nassor and Liz Savage boasted a score of 48. Laurie Fox and Carol Ashton were on their game with a score of 47. Not to be beaten, Gerry McGillicuddy and Denise Doyle were impressive with scores of 46. What outstanding playing for these ladies!
Jennifer Lawson was the lucky winner of the 50-50 raffle.
