Ladies Golf News ~ September 2020
The Queen Bee, a two-day ringer tournament, was held on August 4 and August 11. JoAn Treskovich regained the crown she won in 2018. Karen Thompson placed second. Thanks to Gayle Smith, last year’s queen, for organizing the event.
It was planned to make the Lady Bug tournament a two-day ringer event. Due to unsettled weather, the traditional one-day net event was played on August 11. Barbara Sloan edged Dotty Lynch by one stroke.
Regular LGA play was cancelled on August 18 as the course was turned over to the Women’s Golf Association of Western Pennsylvania’s 2020 Best 2 of 4 tournament. The winners, with a low net of 130, were our own members: Melane Baraniak, Karen Hough, Karen Thompson and JoAn Treskovich. Congratulations ladies for great play.
The Ladies Classic was planned for August 25. After a summer of drought resulting in not one event being cancelled because of rain, it came that day. Players were called off the course twice due to lightening threats. Most players still had five to six holes to play when rain and wind arrived. The event was called off and will now be played on September 1. We still enjoyed a wonderful dinner planned by Becky DeMuth, who put great effort in to organizing the event.
Some changes have been made to the September schedule. The Pink Lady will now be played on September 8. Aeration of the course, originally slated to start that week, will now begin the week of September 14. September 15 and 22 will be No Gadget days. 30 or 40 balls will have to wait until next year.
A reminder that the closing day scramble will be a 1:00 p.m. shot gun on September 29. Based on positive feedback from last year, the plan is to have one orange tee player on each team. Dinner, awards, and meeting and election of next year’s officer will cap off the day.
