The Alameda Women’s Golf Club (AWGC) held its 44th annual Invitational Tournament Thursday, July 25 on the Jack Clark Course.
The tournament groups the players in teams of four. Players consist of AWGC members and guest. Thirty-six teams and 143 golfers competed in six flights in the tournament. All four players on a team played each hole, but the only the two best scores on a hole are counted toward the team score, while the other two scores are discarded.
The Alameda Women’s Golf Club played its first two events of the year, on March 2 and 9, at the Earl Fry Golf Course.
On March 2, the ladies took part in a net tournament. However, the tournament was played with special scoring rules because of the wet conditions on the course due to the heavy rains last month.
For competition purposes players tried to play all 18 holes, but only nine holes counted toward their score. Scores for each player included all four par 3’s, each player’s best three par 4’s, and each player’s best two par 5’s.
Shirley Lee and Diane Hughes won the Alameda Women’s Golf Club Partnership Eclectic two-day tournament by each posting a net 57 last Thursday, Oct. 20. Lee and Hughes finished the tournament tied atop the leaderboard with the team of Linda Ferrill and Pam Curtis. However, Lee and Hughes were determined the winners after it was decided by a three-step tiebreaking process.
Tai Chewpanich held onto her lead to win Alameda Women’s Golf Club (AWGC) 2016 Club Championship last Thursday, Sept. 29. Chewpanich never relinquished the lead she obtained after round one of the three-round tournament. Chewpanich finished the tournament off strong shooting the best score of the third and final round with an overall 86. She also had the best score of round 1 (80) and was tied for second best score of round two (87).
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.
