Perfect Conditions Contribute to Excellent Play

At the end of the 19th century men were working hard to come up with ways to keep lady golfers in check. It was even decreed by a Scottish Lord that women were not allowed to hit the ball any further than 60-70 yards. It had something to do with “looking ungraceful in female dress”. Thank goodness, those days are behind us as 25 ladies showed up to swing away in the warm Chelan sunshine last Thursday. All of us graceful, of course, and hitting it way farther than Lord What’s His Name ever thought possible.

The competition was ALL Fours (total of all par 4’s less ½ your handicap). The winners were:

  • Division 1: First-place, Linda Hahn, 38.5. Second-place, April Talley, 41.
  • Division 2: There was a First-place tie between Karen Holst and Sherry Fisk, 44.5.
  • Division 3:  First-place, Nancy Parker, 41. Second-place, Karen Erickson, 41.5.

Conditions were perfect today or “we’re just that good” as there were 5 birdies made today: April Talley and Sherry Fisk on hole 12, Candace Farnsworth on hole 13, Jaclyn Starr-Evans on hole 18 and Maggie Stalcup on hole 11.

The chip-in pot was divided into fifths today. Jane Storms was the big winner with 2 chip-ins on holes 4 and 10.  April Talley on hole 4, Mary Jo DuRuz on hole 15 and Jaclyn Starr-Evans on hole 18.

After golf, we had a “socially distanced” club meeting in the parking lot down by the cart barn. Each player in their own cart in a giant circle; kind of a modern-day wagon train circling the “wagons” and keeping 6 feet apart.

Next week’s competition is Monthly Medal (low gross and net by division and fewest putts).

Please note that our tee time changes next week to 8:00 am.  Please check in by 7:30 am and don’t forget to wear your masks into the clubhouse.
