Golfers mark Fourth with golf tourneys, barbecue

Posted

To celebrate America’s Independence Day the Discovery Bay Women’s Club and men’s club brought out the irons for a tournament full of bogeys and barbecue.

The annual Fourth of July Scramble Tournament attracted golfers from around the Peninsula.

The women’s club had a great showing with six members on winning teams in the tourney.

The first-place team was headed by none other than 103-year-old Pat Burns, who won the gold with her son, Steve Burns, and cousins Jim and Diane Solie for an impressive genealogical triumph.

Lynn Pierle was on the second-place team and Starla Audette and Dee Sweeney’s team placed third overall.

Wanda Synnestvedt’s team won closest to the pin on Hole 8 and Hole 16.

After the patriotic scramble, the golfers gathered for a tasty barbecue  to round out the festivities.

The women’s club joined up again July 7 for another round at the course as part of their weekly games on Thursdays.

They welcomed 14 players to start from the silver or forward tees with the net score determining the winners. 

First place with a score of 72 was Lise Alschuter, an out-of-town guest from Tucson, Arizona.

Newest women’s club member Sherrilyn Ulland scored 73 to take the silver, and Marianne Ott and Jane Guiltenan tied for third with scores of 74 each.

Fifth place with a 75 was Barb Aldrich and sixth place was Cindy Breed at 78 points.

Each week, the Discovery Bay Women’s Club holds a putting contest with the player with the fewest number of putts winning prize money. Regulation putts for 18 holes is 36. 

The putting contest winners were Lynn Pierle and Lise Alschuter, tied at 33 putts. Five birdies were carded by Judith Murdock, Jodi Stone, Lise Alschueter, Sherrilyn Ulland, and Lynn Pierle, as well.

Ladies in the area are invited to join the club and play any Thursday morning, with the tee-off time set at 9 a.m. To learn more, call the golf course at 360-385-0704.
