Ladies Pitch and Putt report


Arlene Fletcher

January 17 found some lucky Sun Lakes ladies enjoying a game of Pitch and Putt behind the Sun Lakes Country Club. As usual, we played a scramble. The team of Lynn Turnquist, Joni Wetzel, Judi Smith and Leslie Hagemeister won first place with a score of 22. Second place went to the team of Gail Colberg, Karen Torrance, Jan Sykes and Donna Smid with a score of 24. However, the most excitement was over the hole-in-one on the second hole – made by Joni Wetzel. Congratulations to Joni. This is only the second hole-in-one made since the inception of the Pitch and Putt league.

Winners for the scramble on January 24 with a score of 23 were Judi Smith, Karen Torrance, Jan Sykes and Janice Cosgrove. The second-place team with a score of 24 was Rose Galagher, Rosemary King, Jan Lemon and Kathy Lyons.

The course was filled with ladies dressed in their favorite team’s colors on January 31. Lots of hooting and hollering and, of course, even some pitching and putting were going on! Two teams tied for first place with a score of 23: Joann Brown, Elayne Hested and Janet Lemon and Rosemary King, Mary Ann Kehrberg and Arlene Fletcher.

Unfortunately, cold weather canceled our game on February 7.

A reminder that those who are able will meet for lunch in the Sunset Grill after our game on March 7. Be sure to wear green for St. Patrick’s Day on March 14. The last day of golf will be March 28, followed by a breakfast in the Navajo Room.
