Local lady golfers celebrate Independence Day

Posted

The Discovery Bay Women’s Golf Club celebrated the centennial birthday of one of their players, while being invited by the Men’s Club to help ring in Independence Day at their annual “Red, White and Blue Scramble” golf tournament July 4.

Tone Madsen and Lynn Pierle, respective captains of the men’s and women’s clubs, co-organized the 10th year of this tournament and luncheon.

Star women’s club player and 100th birthday girl Patricia Burns was treated to yet another birthday shindig, this time as her team won closest to the pin (KP) on the 16th hole.

The field was comprised of 31 players, with the men playing from the red, white and blue tees, while the women played from the silver, red and gold tees.

In this scramble format, each foursome plays as a team, each player hits a tee shot on each hole, then everyone on the team plays from the spot of the best shot, through to the green, until the ball is holed out.

The team’s total score is then adjusted by an averaged handicap to determine the winning team.

Awards were also given to the team who had KP on the par-three holes.

Winners

• First place with a net score of 44.7: Kirk Englund, Mike Field and Ann Meier.

• Second place with a net 45.0: George Cave, Walt Hill, Dee and Terry Sweeney.

• Third place with a net 46.8: Alex Freitas, Richard Keisel, Casey Telling and Colton Worley.

• KP on 3: Ron Germeau’s team, with Barb Aldrich, Jesse Best and Jon Voelker.

• KP on 8: Kirk Englund’s team, with Mike Field and Ann Meier.

• KP on 14: Lynn Pierle’s team, with Mike Martin, Doug Lewis and Neil Lupkes.

• KP on 16: Pat Burns’ team, with Rich Boyd, Paul Hager and Jim Leonard.

And just two days before the Fourth, on July 2, the Port Townsend Women’s Golf Club played “Bingo, Bango, Bongo,” in which points were awarded for any player whose tee shot was in the fairway, had a one-put or whose shot was closest to the pin within her foursome.

The winners were Barb Aldrich in first place with 18 points, Dee Sweeney in second with 12 points, Lynn Bidlake in third with 10 points and Vicki Young in fourth with nine points.

On July 9, the Port Townsend Women’s Golf Club played a game called “Beauty and the Beast,” in which each foursome played as a team.

The winner was determined by adding the best net low score and the worst high gross score of the four-person team, with the lowest total winning.

The winning team was Starla Audette, Lynn Bidlake, Linda Cupp and Shelley Peterson, and the second-place team was Connie Ayala, Barb Aldrich, Linda Deal and Viki Young.

One July 11, the Discovery Bay Women’s Golf Club played a game called “Sweet Sixteen,” in which only the best scores from 16 of the 18 holes are counted, minus handicap.

Jane Guiltinan won first place, with a net score of 53, while Sheila Kilmer came in second, with a net score of 62.

Shelley Peterson was third, with a net 67, and Ann Meier was fourth, with a net score of 68.
