Tai Chewpanich took the early lead in the Alameda Women’s Golf Club’s 85th annual Club Championship last Thursday, Sept. 15.
The three-day tournament — one round of golf is played each day — is decided by gross scores instead of net scores. Chewpanich posted an overall 80 gross score to take the lead after round one. Stephanie Bellato shot an overall 85 for second place, while Jenny Bae posted an 86 for third place.
The Alameda Junior Golf Club (AJGC) held a junior-adult scotch doubles tournament Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Chuck Corica Golf Course
Junior golf members were paired with an adult club member in the special event. In scotch doubles golf events golfers decide in advance who will drive the even holes and who will drive the odd holes. This results in each player teeing off on nine holes. Players then alternate shots until the ball is in the hole.
