WCC Ladies Golf wraps up season
The Wilson Country Club Ladies Golf Association ended its 2019 season with a fun tournament that was won by the twosome of Sue Garrison-Susan Powell.
The format consisted of five points being awarded when a golfer’s tee shot landed in the fairway. The number of putts were then subtracted to determine total points earned per hole. However, if the player’s tee shot missed the fairway, she was assessed negative points for the number of putts. Via a blind draw, players were paired in twosomes following play.
Garrison-Powell prevailed with 88 points. Debbie Keely-Jean Pochis notched a runner-up finish with 82 points.
Winding up third with 59 points was the duo of Wortley Forbes-Melba Martin. Barbara Biddle-Lisa Matthews salvaged fourth with 54 points.
Hitting her tee shot closest to the pin on the par-3, No. 17 layout was Patch Wilkinson. Winning the longest putts prizes were Keely on No. 10 and Robin Lemare on No. 18.
