The Rossmoor Women’s 18ers fielded 92 players in their first guest day of the season on Thursday, April 27. Forty 18ers and 52 guests took to the fairways after breakfast at Creekside Grill and some warm-up time on the driving range. The Rossmoor Men’s Golf Club provided several of their members to serve as “ambassadors” on the scene and transport the ladies’ golf clubs from their cars to their golf carts.
The weather was chilly at first, but eventually it turned sunny and warm, much to everyone’s delight. The format was two net best balls of four-person teams and there were three flights. Winners were as follows:
First Flight: 1st place: Agnes Shin, Betty Cuniberti, Debbie Keener, Margo Dutton with a net score of 125; 2nd place: Aleso Gourhan, Barbara Barton, Joan Munn, Mary Schmitz with a net score of 126; 3rd place: Olivia Hsueh, Soon Gi Jang, Soonee Kim, Yong Choo with a net score of 128.
Second Flight: 1st place: Denise Pratt, Denise Acker, Maura Mendoza, Pauline Gibson with a net score of 123; 2nd place: Francine Lyall, Joni Upshaw, Susan Chipman, Teddi Swanson with a net score of 127; 3rd place: Christine Seely, Gail Ramirez, Jackie Ryan, Judy McDaniel with a net score of 130.
Third Flight: 1st place: Angela Logsdon, Teruko Lapierre, Yan Sun, Yuko Tsang with a net score of 129; 2nd place: Barbara May, Elain Matsui, Patricia Taylor, Valerie Helenson with a net score of 129; 3rd place: Karen Binder, Karen Wener, Nancy Groswird, Pat Baker with a net score of 129.
Closest to the hole awards were given for holes 2 and 16 for both members and guests. Winners for hole 2 were Nancy Park (member) and Stephanie Siri (guest). Winners for hole 16 were Vicki Kelly (member) and Soon Gi Jang (guest).
Much hard work and planning went into the event which was run by a team headed up by Robin Moreau and Bari Mantel, with the assistance of Garnet Shelly, Nancy Ringelstein, Jackie Bateman and Carole Geoghegan. A Mexican-style lunch was served by Creekside in the Event Center and golf balls were given as prizes to the first, second and third place winners, while the closest-to-the-hole winners received credit in the pro shop for merchandise.
