  • Year End Results

    55 golfers gathered at Legend Lake Golf Club in Chardon on September 24. We all packed our rain gear the night before and hoped for a miracle. Well….we did get it and the rain stayed away. We had a cool start but warmed up for a beautiful Fall-weather day. All enjoyed a nice dinner and plenty of door prizes. Everyone received a new golf show bag. A big thanks for Mary Beth Breckenridge, our events guru, for a fine day!!

    Elizabeth Bryson of the Springvale league won the Most Improved Golfer award for 2021 based on her reduction in handicap – from 37.2 to 31.5. Unfortunately, Elizabeth wasn’t able to attend and missed hearing her applause.  

    For the 50-50 drawing, the board decided to pull two names and return all the money to the members. That means we had a 100-0. Laurie Schroeder was asked to pull the first ticket – and it was her own number. Diane Ward was the other winner.

    The following were flight winners – 1st and 2nd in each category. First place received $50 and second place received $30. Low putts received $25.

    WEST OUTDUELS EAST FOR COURSE CHALLENGE TITLE  

    A HOT weather day was on tap for the 2021 Course Challenge at Ridgewood Golf Course on 8-28 - we had a great showing of 30 golfers. The golfers from the “West” courses (Briarwood, Sleepy Hollow, Springvale) grabbed the Course Challenge title. The West team consisted of Lisa Bizjak, Peggy Brown, June Chung, Susan Curtis, Terri Lanzara, Michele Lawson, Margaret Lynch, Mary Murphy, Kit Quigley, Donna Schreiber, Ann Shamess and Dina Stier.

    The format for play was two-person teams. The first 9 holes was best ball format in which both players played their own ball and used the lower score. The second 9 holes was a scramble. After play on the course, the golfers had a putting contest from 10 ft, 20 ft and 30 ft.

    The West golfers pulled out the win by beating the East by 1 point. For the golf portion, Ann Shamess and Terri Lanzara were 2nd with an excellent score of 60. Susan Curtis and Llsa Bizjak carded a 62 and Kit Quigley and Peggy Brown plus June Chung and Donna Schreiber finished with 64s. In the putting contest, West finished 1-3-5 with Lisa Bizjak, Mary Murphy and Michele Lawson performing the best for the West.

    Other award winners were:
    Clare Labaj and Wendy Shick – low gross team with 74.
    Janet Slaughter and Haydee Weddleton – low net team with 58.
    Lisa Bizjak – best putter in the putting contest.
    Mary Murphy
    – best putter with the vintage putter.

    Skill shot winners:
    Long putt – Donna Schreiber, Haydee Weddleton
    Closest to Pin – Rosanne Fiorelli, Terry Baxter
    Closest to Pin-Any shot off green – Kit Quigley, Donna Schreiber
    Long drive- Elizabeth Mahla
    Closest to Pin on 2nd shot – June Chung

    Special thank you for workers at the event: Ann Shamess for registration, putting contest – Terry Baxter, Lisa Bizjak, Susan Curtis, Rosanne Fiorelli, scoring – Claire Labaj and Wendy Shick.

    Awards were presented by Babe Zaharias (Wendy Shick) and Patty Berg (Claire Labaj) in clothing similar to the 1950s normal golf attire. Both Babe Zaharias and Patty Berg played in an LPGA tournament in 1950 on the course.
