The Alameda Women’s Golf Club (AWGC) held one of its mainstay events last Thursday, Jan. 29 at the Chuck Corica Golf Complex.

The AWGC held a four-man team tournament which pits golfers into a team of four. Each member plays each hole, but the only two best scores of a particular hole are counted toward the team score and the other two scores are discarded.

The teams were broken into two flight groups. The first flight pitted teams with a combined handicap of 62 to 98. The second flight matched teams with a combined handicap between 112 and 157.

Dee Dee Appleton won the Alameda Women’s Golf Club (AWGC) net tournament event with a net 71, besting 36 other golfers last Thursday, Jan. 22, on the Earl Fry Course.

Weather was a lot cooler than forecast, and a slight breeze made it feel cold even in the little sunshine that made it through the high fog and low clouds. All the flight winners played well, and all four flights had a tie in one of the first four places.
