Scramble Team - Marsha Borr, Linda Eirich, Peggy Cook,  Kathy Kampman,


The above ladies went on to the Regional finals at the Presidents Country Club in Palm Beach Gardens.  Mamie went on to nationals at The Hermitage in Nashville TN.  Below is Mamie's recap.

The wound is still raw that I tied for first place low net after 36 holes, and lost in a scorecard playoff !

 On Saturday, I was in the group with the player that won first place low net.  She almost drove the par 4 green on hole #16 and ended with up a birdie.  I got a par, but that one stroke was enough to be the difference.  On Saturday, I also was in the group with the player that won third place low net.  As you can see, I had a very competitive group on Saturday.  The best part was that we still had lots of fun and everyone was encouraging to all.

 The conditions were really tough – even for me !

Both rounds were cart path only.  You also had to play the ball where it landed – no lift, clean and replace.  It rained everyday starting on Wednesday.  Friday start time was delayed two hours by rain and then play was interrupted about half way through for storms.  Some players did not get to finish their first round on Friday.  Saturday’s play was in rain all day with temps in the low 60s.

I personally renamed the city of Nashville – SQUISHVILLE !
