Congratulations gals! There were great shots and maybe a grimace or two and the ball retriever didn’t quite reach far enough in many situations. The scores reflect a tough course set up and we appreciate the flexibility in using COMBO tees for all flights this year.
Thanks to Judy Hoyt, Judy Yee, Karen Wallin and Sharon Christensen for handling the volunteer duties ensuring a successful competition.
Thank you to WSCGA Rules Officials, Rene Rainey and Memi Petke for providing expert knowledge of the Rules of Golf. There were a few ruling made during the day. EWGA OC Board and committee members are encouraged to use every opportunity to share the Rules of Golf with our members. There are numerous competitions and charity events coming up and we want each EWGA member to be prepared.
Next time you go to Tijeras Creek, please thank Mike and Steve for providing a well prepared course and great customer service from staff.
Congratulations again for those you competed and please share your experience with others to invite them to the 2018 EWGA Championship.
