Judith Cohen, posting the low net score of 70 on Thursday, Aug. 31, won the final spot in the season-long quest for “Charm Girl.” Judith will be competing against the five other Charm Day winners, Jane Lee, Andrea Alpine, Soonee Kim, Agnes Shin, and Barbara Musante, for overall Charm Girl. The Charm is a longstanding 18ers event that is played throughout the year on six different, random play days. The low net of the day becomes the Charm day winner and is awarded a commemorative towel.

On Thursday, Nov. 9, the six individual winners will compete for the 2023 Charm Girl title. Whoever manages to bring their “A” game (and most likely a bit of luck) will win the title. Congratulations to all of the individual winners.

In other 18er news, the final match of the East Bay Team Play season was held on Aug. 30 at Oakhurst Country Club in Clayton on a hot, but not scorching, day.

Round Hill got 29.5 gross points and 32 net points.  There were 14 teams that participated in EBTP this year.

18ers are encouraged to save the date and invite their Niner and RMGC friends to the upcoming Charity Tournament on Oct. 5. Proceeds from this year’s event will go 100% to the Maui Strong Fund which will help survivors of the recent wildfire.
