PV Ladies golfers bright as fireworks


Liz DeMichael

The scores posted in July by the Palo Verde Ladies Golf Association (PVLGA) lit up the course each week like fireworks on July 4. Look how explosive they were…

7/03. Low Gross. A tough game to play in the heat, but the members of the PVLGA were up to the challenge! The winners were Flight 1: Mary Nelson (71), Vallerie Verbeck (76) and Jan Nelson (77); Flight 2: Sandy Chavez and Julie Curran (tied – 83) and Christy Thomas (85); Flight 3: Pat Schultz (94), Kay Berner (95) and Rita Raymond (98). Well played, ladies!

7/10 and 7/17. Summer Eclectic. The ladies played two tournaments and selected their lowest score between them on a hole-by-hole basis to come up with their best 18-hole score. This sure helped this ol’ girl who happened to get lucky on the right holes between the two days! The winners were Flight 1: Penny Nowicki (66) and Mary Nelson and Donna Purcell (tied – 69); Flight 2: Lucsa Buzbee (79) and Liz DeMichael and Christy Thomas (tied – 80).

7/24. No play due to aeration.

7/31. Odd Holes. In the Odd Holes tournament, only the odd-numbered holes counted toward the final score (a format generally perfect for this “oddball” but not this time). The winners were Flight 1: Mary Nelson, Donna Purcell and Vallerie Verbeck (tied – 30.5); Flight 2: Rita Raymond (32) and Susie Buell and Jan Stuckey (33.5). Excellent scores, ladies!
