18-Holers Put Clubs In Storage


For members of the Payson Womens Golf Association, the 2001 campaign is at an end.

A spring and summer that was jam-packed full of competition, fun and frivolity wrapped up Oct. 30 at a Halloween-themed tournament and awards ceremony held at the Payson Golf Course.

Dorothy Meek won first place in the day's play, followed by second-place winner Mary Johns and third-place golfer, Blanche Nyberg.

At a post-tournament luncheon, club president Kay Davis presided over an awards ceremony and girt certificate presentation.

Among the awards Davis doled out was the state medallion low gross medal earned last June by Marge Landra. Davis took home the low-net winner for that event.

Also on the season-ending awards agenda were trophy presentations for the Memorial, President's Cup and the Club Championship tournaments.

The team of Brenda Baker and Alesha Calderwood won the first flight title of the Memorial Tournament that was played in July. Nancy Kisseberth and Shirley Smith took second flight honors. The third flight gold medal went to Joyce Goff and Ruth Overton. Judy Neal and Wilma Smith copped flight-four laurels.

Mary Jones won the President's Cup tournament, contested in mid-August. Laura Meyocks took second, Landra was third and Gerry Quissenberry fourth.

On Oct. 1 and 2, PWGA members battled in the Club Championship that was won by Marge Landra (low gross ) and Wilma Smith (low net).

Flight winners included Joyce Karnes (A), Brenda Baker (B), Kools (C) and Smith (D).

Following the Club Championship a "Beat the Champ" tournament was held in which members tried to outduel Landra. Meyocks emerged victorious with a gross of 76 and net 62. During the championship round, Meyocks tallied an eagle on hole 12.

In addition to the many tournaments played locally, the PWGA members traveled to competitions at Silver Creek, Pine Meadows and Concho Valley.

If weather cooperates, the 2002 campaign is scheduled to begin March 26, 2002. According to Davis, the PWGA welcomes all new members.
