Women’s 18ers Play for Charm

Last week the weather cooperated and the Women’s 18er’s played for the charm and postponed the Nassau golf tournament previously scheduled for April 11th. Players were very competitive as there were many ties, both for the charm itself and within the flights.

There was a three-way tie of net 67 for the charm. The tie was broken by going first to scores shot on the back nine and then to the 18th hole and then to the 17th. When the dust cleared from all that math swirling around, Grace Nitta emerged as the winner of the charm.

And now to the flights: First Flight, low gross-Alice Sprague (82), first low net-Soonee Kim (67), second low net-Pat Diesem (70); Second Flight, low gross-Olivia Hsueh (97), first low net-Gail Ramirez (76), second low net-Ai Soon Hong (76); Third Flight, low gross-Jackie Hildreth (110), first low net-Young Sun Bai (78), second low net-Urcil Commons (78); Fourth Flight, low gross-Ann Donaldson (108), first low net-Gisela Hendrickson (71), second low netShin Kim (72).

Birdies were scored by Gail Ramirez on hole 2, by Grace Nitta on hole 5, by LaVerne Parrott on hole 10 and by Pat Diesem on hole 16. Ai Soon Hong chipped in on hole 11 and Janet Choi did the same on hole 15.

The Handicap Tournament is coming in May. Players wanting to compete in this challenging event must sign up in the 18ers section of the club area in the pro shop by May 2nd. The Handicap Tournament runs from May 9th through the 23rd. The format is match play and all members (regardless of handicap) can enter but players will be limited to a handicap of 40. This year there will be no qualifying round. Matches will begin on May 9th with assigned tee times.

The field will be divided into flights. Pairings will be done by the pro shop. With the exception of the first day, May 9th, and the final day, May 23rd, matches can be arranged any day convenient for both opponents. The Handicap Tournament Champion will be determined on May 23 with the flight winners competing for the title.
