Women’s Golf Group

We are enjoying these warm summer days and nights as proven by the number of members of the Women’s Golf Group participating in recent events. On some Tuesday evenings, more than 30 players are participating in the 9-Hole events.

Again, Captain Betsy Larey’s Traveling Team filled the ranks and then the team made up some ground on Friday July 12TH when we took second place at North Oaks. Accumulated Stableford Points to date are:

North Oaks: 179 + 216 = 395
Midland Hills: 194 + 168 = 362
Town and Country: 196 +166 = 362
Dellwood: 160 + 188 = 348

Team Dellwood is now only 14 points out of second place and only 47 points out of first place with two more rounds to play. Next up: Midland Hills on August 9th.
