Winners Advance to Quail Hollow Sectional
Saturday was a scorching day to be on the golf course as 36 golfers participated in the Chapter Championship at Ellsworth Meadows Golf Club. The rains over the two days leading up to Saturday had the course wet in a few spots, but things dried out in the afternoon as temperatures reached 92. Leigh Murray and Gloria Merritt posted the best rounds of the day (when comparing net scores) as both has 67 net. Five scramble teams were vying for the one spot in the Scramble competition, so that part of the competition was hotly contested. Lots of cold drinks and fun was had by all at the 19th hole. The first place gross, first place net winners and first place scramble team will advance to the Sectional Tournament at Quail Hollow – Devlin course on August 27. With our chapter hosting the event, we are expecting to advance a few players on to the Nationals that will be held in Virginia in September. If you are interested in volunteering to work on August 26 or 27, contact Debbie McCreery at email@example.com. You will be given a tee shirt and $10 towards food purchase.
