WGG Update

June was a busy month for the ladies! As always, we want to encourage more of our women golfers (new & experienced) to join us on our Tuesday evening and Thursday morning leagues! We know there are more of you out there and we would love to have you join us sometime!

The Tri Club Event (Dellwood Country Club, Stillwater Country Club and Mendakota Country Club) was held this year at MCC on Thursday, June 4. The weather was picture perfect and MCC dazzled all of the golfers with an amazing continental breakfast and delicious lunch as well as providing play on a beautifully groomed golf course. As difficult as it was to give up the trophy that we had won last year when we hosted the Tri Club Event at DCC, we graciously turned it over to Mendakota Country Club for their superior play. We look forward to winning it back in 2016.
Our City League has played for 6 consecutive Fridays. Players included: Judy Kishel, Wendy Benson, Abby Moffitt, Sue Ryan and Kathleen Callahan. There are 18 teams and we are currently in 11th place but close to moving up in the last match to 10th.

A little “Birdie” happened to mention that on their way to the City League event at Hazeltine, Kathleen and Wendy were carefully following the electronic navigation, which as they arrived was telling them they were on a “restricted road”. The restricted road they were on was actually one of the cart paths; for nearly a mile! Fortunately it did lead them to the pro shop where they were greeted by the pro. Luckily for Kathleen & Wendy he had a great sense of humor!

Everyone has enjoyed City League and we all hope others participate next year. It is a great bargain….for less than $40 you get golf, breakfast and a great lunch. And we have played great courses: MN Valley, Edina, Oak Ridge, Hazeltine, Mendakota, and Golden Valley.

The Women’s Best Ball Tournament was held June 26th & 27th. We had three teams tie for 1st in the overall with a score of 137: Barb Countryman & Kathy Saterbak; Sue Ryan & Cathy Poechmann; and Roxanne Nelson & Kirsten Zell. Our Ringer Team winners were 1st: Roxanne Nelson & Kirsten Zell; 2nd Kitty Consadine & Dawn Kennedy. The Friday winners were Roxanne Nelson & Kirsten Zell; Saturday was Barb Sawyer & Julia Adams. Congratulations ladies!!
