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.

Thanks to great participation, good weather, favorable course conditions, and help from the Pro Shop, it turned out to be a fun tournament. Well, more fun for some than others, I guess.
See attached photos for all the nitty gritty and hope to see you all try our Fall Championship Tournament. It’s Gross, but we have Net Flights, so everyone can sharpen competitive skills, and has the chance to be a winner!
Below are the overall standings after yesterday’s play. Congratulations to Sondi for a fabulous net 64!
Please let me know if you see errors – this was a quick look at just one set of cards and I did not check the addition.
Tee times will be out this afternoon. The leaders will tee off at 8:15 am and the rest of the groups will follow more or less in order so you can get an idea of when you’ll be teeing off.
There will be 3 flights. First Flight is a small one, handicaps 5-13. The other two flights are 22-29 and 30-36.
Del said these scores were posted as T Scores yesterday, so your May 1 handicaps may have changed. We are using the 4/15 handicaps for all three days of the Tournament.
See you tomorrow and good luck to all!
The 32nd annual Discovery Bay Women’s Club Invitational celebrated timeless traditions of golf with 108 players dressed in knickers and argyle representing over a dozen visiting country clubs.
Opening ceremonies included sounds from champion bagpiper, Fred Payne to the raising of the tournament flag by Liberty High School Junior Girls Golf Club member, Isabel Moomey, and a group photo of the entire field of players on Hole #1.
Honorary Guest Speaker, Earline Dal Porto, first captain and co-founder of the club in 1987, delivered a tearful tribute to the club as she spoke about its beginning stating ” back then, you had to live in Discovery Bay to be a member, so I bought a condo!”. She and her best friends Bobby Pearson and Jean Davis shared an equal love for the sport and played well into their “golden” years. Earline also owned and operated Brentwood Ford, now Bill Brandt Ford in Brentwood, and married the love of her life, Bob Dal Porto, a local rancher and Liberty High School Hall of Famer.
As a tribute to the event, co-founder of the LPGA and author of the book “From Green to Tee”, Shirley Spork spoke at the awards banquet via live Face Time on the big screen. After wishing us well on our tournament and taking us on trip through time in women’s golf, she received a standing ovation and closed with the words “Full swings girls and hold your finish ’till the ball lands!”.
Our guests enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner from our wonderful Discovery Bay Golf & Country Club and thanks to the Pros and the entire golf course staff, the course welcomed players to three days of competition and fun. 48 players won low net in their flights, with two teams winning overall low gross and low net, as well as 24 winners in various on site competitions. Thanks to the many local sponsors and 15 country clubs donating rounds of golf, the tournament was able to help support the Liberty Union High School Junior Girls Golf Club.
