Playday April 17 2018 – Mini Solheim – So Much Fun!

Hi All-

We tried something new, and it was a little confusing, but it turned out to be a fun format.  It was really cold this morning, which didn’t help, but everyone plugged along and finished.  I divided the group into 2 teams, as evenly matched as possible, and the team that won the most holes won the event.  Holes 1-6 were Partner Best Ball; Holes 7-12 were Partner Alternate Shot; Holes 13-18 were Partner Scramble.

It couldn’t have been much closer – final score – 48 to 47!

Winning Team ($4 each):

Cindy Aafedt, Donna Grover, Jennie Dillon, Mary Watkins, Shelly Morgan, Anne Oprey, Kathy Readler, Sondi Schnee, Joanne Smith, Donna Johnson, Raquel Myers, Julie Hanson, Kris Rogers and Carolyn Barnes.

We had no chip-ins so $30 is carried forward to our next regular play day after the Handicap Tournament in May (another reason to sharpen your chipping skills!).

Closest to to the Pins, worth $4 each, Hcps 0-29 & 30 +.

Hole 2: Cindy Aafedt 10’ & Kris Rogers 6’

Hole 7: Cindy Aafedt 13’ & Raquel Myers 22’8”

Hole 14: Cathy Houston 3’7” & Carolyn Barnes 18’1”

Hole 17: Annette Krey 11’6”


Annette Krey claimed the lone Birdie on Hole 5, but Cathy Houston made her putt on Hole 14, so she is credited for a bird as well.

Thanks for giving something new a chance and see you on the course.
