The Pagosa Springs Women’s Golf Association has brought its season to a close.
The women’s group, with 24 members, played every Tuesday from the end of May to the end of September. Weekly games were fun and devised so that all handicaps had a chance of winning.
The ladies also participated in the Four Corners team play events that took place at different courses around the Four Corners area about once a month. This Thursday, the last team play was held at San Juan Country Club in Farmington, N.M., with a celebration luncheon at the conclusion of play.
The club championship was held on two beautiful days the end of August. The overall club champion was Kay Crumpton, who finished with a gross score for two days of 141. The first flight net winner was Cherry O’Donnell with a net score for two days of 134. In the second flight, the first net player was Joan Stone with a score of 134, and Nancy Dennis was the second net winner with a score of 139.
On the first day of play, there were three chip-ins by Beth Ross, Kathy McBane and Kay McKee. On the second day, Cherry O’Donnell had a 60-foot putt on Pinon nine for the longest putt of the championship. At the end of the last day of play, the group celebrated with lunch.
