Mountain Glen Women’s Golf Association

The Mountain Glen Women’s Golf Association competed in an Eclectic Tournament over two weeks. The first round was played on July 21, the second on July 28.

The two days were about as opposite as days could be. July 21 weather-wise was one of those hot humid days that saps the energy of competitors. The second round on June 28, however, was a cool day which threatened rain all morning, but only a few drops fell by the end of the tournament.

The tournament is won by the players who have the lowest net score, counting only the lowest score of each hole between the two matches.

Frances Allen won first place of the 18 holers with a net 59. Second place went to Brenda Wetmore with a net 60. Linda Dowdell won third with a 62. Fourth place went to Helen DeMartini with a net 63, and Martha Serola came in fifth place with a net 64.

The Nine Hole golfers played a game of Low Net. Maureen Walker won first place with a net score of 35, and Elaine Strickland placed second with a net score of 38.
