Hollie’s Ladies Golf: Gross battles mark Hollie’s ladies night

If something is happening with ladies golf at Hollies then scribe Deb Haggard's got the scoop. If she doesn't then it didn't happen.

Well, another perfect ladies golf night at Hollies.

It was one of those perfect summer evenings when you can’t help but enjoy yourself.

It was a battle for low gross winner in the “A” division. Lisa Young and Maryann McConnell both tied for the runner up spot, with the top spot being won by LaDonna Knudson. Rhonda Holcombe won the low gross “B” division. Longest putt, sponsored by Tim Horton’s, was won by Marion Dick. That putting lesson really paid off because Marion has won this prize a few times this year. Lisa Young, won KP, which was sponsored by Safeway. Linda Smith picked up the KP on the second shot and also won the longest, most accurate drive.

Linda has been to ladies night at Hollies several times over the years, but this is her first time out this golf season. She golfed with her mother, Iris, and her daughter, Mallory. How many sports can you think of when three generations can compete together and all have an equal footing on winning? But it is not about winning. It is about spending quality time together and enjoying that time together. When my daughter comes home to visit, one of her priorities is a golf game with grandma. Grandma still enjoys a good round of golf, especially when she is with her granddaughter. I can hardly wait to have that time with my granddaughter.

Pat gave us a very insightful tip of the night. When you watch the pro’s on television, they spend time looking at their target. You have to spend time to absorb what you are looking at, you have to see it and then you have to believe it. Great advice.

So if you drive by Hollies on Wednesday night and you see some women staring out into space, we are really thinking about our next shot. Or perhaps we are thinking about the upcoming dinner and dessert that awaits us when we come into the clubhouse? Or perhaps we are just enjoying the moment?

We are entering the latter half of our golf season, but there is a still lot of time to come out and enjoy Ladies Night at Hollies every Wednesday at 6 p.m.
