Play Day Results-Jan 31, 2023

19 Ladies braved the frozen tundra of Disco Bay!! Frost Delay didn’t waver the committed. Sun was out, so that helped warm up the outing. The game was Sweet and Sour. Pick 4 best scores on front (or old back) and 4 best scores from back (or old front) and 1 worst score from the 18. Deduct ½ handicap, and hence your score. Results were:

1st Flight (0-16 Hdcp)
1st Place-$15Donna Ybarra30.5 pts
2nd Place-$7Cathy Houston33 pts
2nd Flight (19-28 Hdcp)

Chip in’s – since there was a $17 carryover, these were hotly contested today. Guess we like those red flag pin placements. Chips ins paid $6.00 much to the disappointment of everyone. Thought we were cashing in.

Cathy Houston                  Hole 2 (old 11)

Doris Bunnell                     Hole 7 (old 16)

Donna Ybarra                     Hole 6 (old 15) and 14 (old 5)

Think there was a redundancy on this category today 😊 Closest to the Pins paid $4.75 or in this case $9.50 a person.

There were no chip ins today, so $17.00 is carried over to next week. 

Oops so sorry, I forgot to acknowledge our birdies of the day:

Becky Heagle                     7 (old 16)

Annette Krey                     16 (old 7)

Doris Bunnell                    16 (old 7)

Congrats ladies!!

Next week we are playing Sweet and Sour – take 4 lowest holes on front 9, 4 lowest holes on the back 9 and the WORST score of the day. Deduct ½ handicap. We have 25 ladies signed up at this point. If you have changed your mind and want to play, please call the pro shop, and have them add you to the Foretees event tab. This needs to be done by noon this Saturday. Scorecards will be cut Saturday afternoon. 

Thanks everyone, it was fun today.
