The Palms course was our “opposition” on January 16! It seems as though there were a number of OLNGA players who were more than up for the task. Winners in Flight #1 were Cora Levensky and Bonnie Tasch for first, second was Ila Kraayenbrink and a tie for third with Mary Medved and Joanne Dunn with a 42. Flight #2 was led by Barbara Stewart in first, Georgeann Bell, Julia Collier and Linda Trisch in second and Kathy Chebuhar in third. Dottie Meade landed first in Flight #3, Mary Swanson in second and a three-way tie for third with Karen Kenyon, Karen Gonzales and Maureen Kroll.
