Since 2014, when the Rossmoor Women’s 18ers joined the Diablo Valley Team Play League, 18ers who wished to play competitive four-ball match play at nine other private East Bay golf courses could enjoy playing at such beautiful courses as Orinda Country Club, Discovery Bay Country Club, and Diablo Country Club. This competitive league limits players to an index of 24.0 or lower in order to create an equitable playing field where team members compete for low gross and low net points. Each match has eight members from all ten participating clubs playing two against two in an A team, a B team, a C team and a D team, with players matched up according to their indexes.

Jean Carroll and Janice Davis, captain and co-captain of the Rossmoor DVTP team, rallied the players and frequently played themselves in the ten matches of the 2017 season. In the end, Rossmoor finished second in the net standings with total cumulative points of 378, just behind Crow Canyon’s first place total of 382.5 points. In the gross point standings, the 18ers finished in fourth place with a cumulative total of 371.5 points, behind Diablo’s third place 377.5, Discovery Bay’s second place 414.5, and Blackhawk’s first place 440 points.

The Rossmoor team was presented with a plaque from the Diablo Valley Team Play League for their second-place win. Congratulations to all the DVTP players.
