2021 Invitational Recap

Just wanted to recap the 2021 Invitational, “Salute to Frontline Workers”. Two days of fun and camaraderie. Thanks to the 100 ladies who participated.
Not only did we survive the delta variant uptick and smoke from many fires, but made new friends and reconnected with old.

Here’s the recap of what occurred:

Probably the biggest success was the $450 raised for the Brentwood Food Pantry. The ladies that are involved with this charity,
were so happy that we could raise this money. I have to say, it’s actually the shining light from our invitational. Be proud of that.

and Flight 3 played holes 6 – 8. The winners of each flight met on hole 9 and played one hole for horse race placement. It came down to a chip off.
From what it seemed 100 yards from the back of the green, D. Martin made the perfect chip. Been back there a lot Debbie?? 😁 It was a very exciting finish for all and congratulations to making it to the last hole.
