Ah, the Sweet Taste of Chardonnay - Apr 12

 

CHARDONNAY GOLF CLUB

PWGA & NCGA TEAM QUALIFIER

 

Eighteen ladies made the trek over to Napa to tackle Chardonnay Golf Club.  The 119 rating on this course is very deceiving.  It is a very challenging course.  There were two teams qualifying for the NCGA Associate Club qualifier and five teams qualifying to represent EWGA Sacramento in the PWGA Team event.  We also were playing for low net over the field and low gross.

 

The winner of low gross was Nanci Smith with a score of 84.  Betty Lou Beyer took home the low net award with a 71.  Great scores, ladies.

 

The two two-person teams advancing to play in the NCGA best ball event to be held on May 28th at a location to be determined later are:  Nanci Smith and Pam Katros with a team net score of 65.  Kris Corbridge and Patricia Ickes were close with a 66 net.  Both teams will be advancing to represent us in a mostly male-dominated event so we wish them luck in representing our ladies group.

 

The five teams qualifying for two spots to advance to represent EWGA at the PWGA team event at Woodcreek on June 29th were:

 

1st place:  Shelley Van Drimmelen and Pam Katros - 62

2nd place: Jeri Paik and Patricia Ickes - 64  (won in card off)

3rd place:  Tillie Melton and Sharon Blume - 64

4th Place:  Kris Corbridge and Clare Payne - 69

5th place:  Marcia Whiting and Lori Lucius - 70

Spring Fun League - #2 Results - Apr 11

 

Lynda Lapp, Kayleen Kott, Janet Cino

 

Twenty players came out to play the MacKenzie Course at Haggin Oaks on Saturday, April 11th in beautiful weather for the second of five play dates in the Spring Fun League.  The game of the day was Cha-Cha-Cha and teams were equally matched using their handicaps.  In the 4-person Cha-Cha-Cha format, each member of the team played her ball throughout, but a 3-hole rotation existed for determining how many scores were used to create the team score.  

 

On the first hole (Cha), the one low ball counts as the team score.  On the second hole (Cha-Cha), the two low balls combined count as the team score.  On the third hole (Cha-Cha-Cha), the three low balls combined count as the team score.  The rotation starts over on the fourth hole.  There were ($20) gift cards awarded to the winning team members as well as a $15 gift card to the overall low net for the day.

 

Congratulations to the team of Linda Reid, Janet Cino, Kayleen Kott and Lynda Lapp

winning with the low score of 128 (par of this format was 141).  All other teams were not far behind turning in scores ranging from 130-135.  Congrats go out to Clare Payne, our Low Net winner for the day with a very nice net 69!  Kudos to Marcia Whiting (#7 and #12) and Laurie Hochmuch (#7 and #16) for each getting two natural birdies.  

 

Next Spring League Fun Play date is Saturday, April 28 at Bartley Cavanaugh.

 

Rules Clinic on "Obstructions" - Apr 7

 

On April 7, seven members and guests attended this clinic taught by John Nakamura, past NCGA President and Tournament Official.  Everyone gained a better understanding of "Rule 24" which covers the types of obstructions and the corresponding relief.  John emphasized the importance of learning the definitions and why they serve as a foundation for understanding the rules.  Carol Wilkening, EWGA member, had this to say about the clinic:

 

"When we "new" golfers begin playing with others, the rules experienced golfers apply to our mishaps on the course can seem random and difficult to comprehend. The Obstructions class offered me an understandable context, with real-life video examples and the confidence to tackle the "Rules of Golf" book.  I not only learned a lot, but thoroughly enjoyed it as well."

Granite Bay Play Day - Apr 6

We had 10 EWGA ladies joining another group of mostly men for a shotgun start at beautiful Granite Bay Country Club.  The weather was perfect, the course in great condition.  Only bad thing was a really long round of golf.  A few holes with all three of our groups waiting on the tee box.

 

 

However, a great thing happened:  Our very own Del Sayles-Owen became the newest member of the two club by getting a two on hole number 3 over the water.  It was a beautiful shot and an awesome putt.  Congratulations Del!

Spring Fun League Play Started - Mar 28


Front L to R:  Vicki Philpott, Chao Chen  
Back L to R:  Sunny Mills, Linda Reid

The first of five play dates for the Spring Fun League was played at the MacKenzie Course at Haggin Oaks on Saturday, March 28th.  Twenty-six members enjoyed a fun game in awesome weather.  The game was created by Linda Reid  and Vicki Philpott and called Four Games in One.  The winning categories were low net overall, lowest totaled 3 pars, lowest totaled 4 pars and lowest totaled 5 pars.  Prize amounts were based on PAR times the number of holes played.  For instance, there were eight 4 pars so 8 holes x 4 par = $32, there were five 5 pars so 5 x 5 = $25, etc.

 

Congratulations to the four winners!

Net Overall Winner ($25) was Janet Cino with an awesome 65!  Net 3 Par Winner ($15) was Linda Reid with an 11 - cinched with a net eagle on #6!   Net 4 Par Winner ($32) was Marcia Whiting with a 28 (there were 8 four pars and she played them 4 under par!)  Net 5 Par Winner ($25) was Amelie Gannon with an astounding 20! (She achieved net birdies on all 5 five pars and that's quite an achievement for anyone!)
