For the high handicap group, Mary Ann Maddison won the low gross, Pat Dahlquist won low net and there was a three-way tie for the lowest putts between Dahlquist, Maddison and Marj Dufour.

Pars were had by Romaniuk and Marie Swain. Maddison and Romaniuk had chip-ins.

In 18-hole ladies’ play, low gross was won by Janice Cross and Carol Hastings took the low net.  Leona Fowler hung onto the Challenge Pin despite a challenge from Marie Randall.

For the KP challenge, Cross won on No. 5 and Hastings won on No. 14.  The special prize was won be Kathy White.

The nine-hole and 18-hole ladies’ closing luncheon will take place at the golf course next Tuesday, Oct. 7 at noon.

In the words of Byron Nelson: The only thing you should force in a golf swing is the club back into the bag.
