Play Day Results-Nov 1, 2022


The day started out sunny but the last 4 holes were wet and miserable.  Only 8 out of the 14 players finished the round.  As a result, we only had one flight that paid out three places.  

The game was Double If.  After completing the round each golfer threw out the two worst scores and deducted the full handicap.

Bonnie Ladd came in third with a game score of 62 and won $8. 

Kay Bargmann was second with a score of 60 and won $17.

Conchita Christensen was the winner with a score of 59 and won $24.

There was only one chip-in.  Deborah Veatch had it on Hole 12!  She won $14.

There was only one birdie.  Frances Shipilov made a bird on Hole 6. Congratulations!

Closest to Pin paid out $4.00 and there were only 4 winners, and no one landed on hole 17 green.

Handicaps 27-36

Hole 14 Sondi Schnee- 59 feet.

Handicaps 0-26  

Hole 2 Kay Bargmann 13’10”

Hole 7 Conchita Christensen 20’11”

Hole 14 Jan Baehr 22’5”

Thanks to my helpers today- Frances Shipilov, and Kay Bargmann!  

Next week the game is PPLN.  

Hope all of you who played have warmed up and dried out!

Play Day Results-Oct 11, 2022

Hi All,

Sorry the results are so late; I was pretty busy this week. For those who don’t know, I went with 7 other members from Discovery Bay to play in the FILAM (Filipino/American) tournament in Vegas. Team Disco took 3rd place in our flight. I know a couple other guys went and played on a senior team, and that team took 2nd in their flight. I would say we represented well.

Now, onto our results from 10/11. Game was S & T’s. Take your score from those holes and subtract ½ your handicap.

We had 18 players, 3 flights of 6. First place won $14.00, and Second place won $7.00.
