Sensational scores at Guys & Gals Tournament
The July 21 Leisure World Guys & Gals Tournament was played at the LW Turtle Lake Golf Course. Three flights of one-man-and-one-woman teams participated for best net scores, four circle holes (within a 5-foot circle) and two closestto- the-pin challenges. Six of the rounds were well in excess of net 10 below par, with one round at net 18 under par.
A total of 38 teams of golfers participated through the early morning and into the afternoon The greens and fairways are in very good condition, but the tee boxes remain in poor shape with very low or little growth, more than a few bare spots, and numerous unrepaired divots.
At the opening 7:30 a.m. tee time, the weather was sunny, warm and windless; this continued into the early afternoon. With the reasonable weather but only fair overall course conditions, 33 of the 38 rounds were net at or below par. There were no holes-in-one this tournament.
All scores below are net (gross score minus handicap). A Flight encompasses golfers with handicaps of 0-10; B Flight is 11-13; and C Flight is 14-18.
