PVLGA President’s Cup winner

Liz DeMichael, Publicity

The weather in February was wonderful and is part of the reason we live in Sun Lakes. The other reason is that we can play golf on the beautiful PV golf course.

2/6 and 2/13. President’s Cup. Nancy Howell is the 2018 President’s Cup Champion for the Palo Verde Ladies Golf Association (PVLGA). She played against a talented field of ladies and prevailed in the two-round event by shooting 111. Well done, Nancy! Other winners by flights were: 1st Flight – Carol Guild (116), Mary Nelson (118) and Rachel Rainville and Patti Hegenbarth (tied – 119); 2nd Flight – Sherry Manier (116), Jan Nelson (117) and Jo Crook (118); 3rd Flight – Karen Bailey (121), Ginger Henry (124) and Elaine Isaacson (126); 4th Flight – Lois Fitzsimmons (122), Pat Schultz (123) and Bonnie Kane (124). Congratulations to our President’s Cup Champion and all our flight winners!

2/20. Fewest Putts. The early morning was cool, but it warmed up nicely the day of the Fewest Putts Tournament. The ladies with the fewest putts in each flight won, regardless of their total score. Putts made from off the green did not count toward the score. Those golfers who are good have no advantage over us who can never seem to find the green! The results for the morning flight were: 1st Flight – Carolyn Hoffland (27 putts) and Cindy Bosch and Carol Ruff (tied – 30 putts); 2nd Flight – Christine Lecoutre (32 putts), followed by Sandy Eeds, Carolyn Griffis and Jo Ann Hicks (tied – 33 putts); 3rd Flight – Bonnie Kane (32 putts), Assenmacher (33 putts), together with Dolores Mahaffey and Karen Ryan (tied – 35 putts). The afternoon results were: 1st Flight – Mary Nelson (27 putts), Terry Gaube (28 putts) and Kathryn (31 putts); 2nd Flight – Susie Buell and Lynnette Liffrig (tied – 31 putts), followed by Lois Fitzsimmons (33 putts).

2/27. Eclectic. The first round of an Eclectic game was played on a beautiful day this month. The best score is picked between both rounds hole by hole. The second round will be played next month. Stayed tuned to find out who the winners will be!

Thanks to the Palo Verde golf pros and groundskeeping crew for making Palo Verde such a fun course to play!
