Despite the less than ideal weather conditions, Black Rock Creek Golf Course's 18-hole ladies group is meeting every Tuesday for its weekly competitions.
This past Tuesday, April 3, the women's group actually was greeted with a bit of sunshine, and the ladies' scores reflected the favorable playing conditions.
Playing the front nine twice this week because the closing nine holes had recently been plugged and sanded, Carol Monholland turned in the low round of the day. Monholland notched a pair of birdies, one on the par-5 third hole and another with a chip-in on the par-5 sixth, enroute to carding a 6-over-par 78.
Marjean Laverman and Dolores Dasso, both of Sunnyside, had the second and third low scores with a 96 and 99, respectively. Laverman's round of 96 included a chip-in on the par-4, eighth hole.
The one other golfer this past Tuesday who recorded a chip-in, that coming on No. 8, was Patti Hart of Sunnyside.
Low net of field honors this past Tuesday (actual score minus handicap) went to Sunnyside's Cheryl Devoe. She shot a handicap-aided 63. Prosser's Maryanne Currier had the second low net score, a 65. Tying for third low net honors, with handicap-aided 67's, were Hart and Rose Fleming of Sunnyside.
The previous Tuesday, March 27, the weather was so horrific that only three of the 10 ladies who showed up to play completed all 18 holes of play. Monholland, despite the extremely stiff wind, got around the 18-hole layout with an 86. Monholland's highlight came on the dogleg right, 11th hole, which she birdied.
Tuesday, March 20, because of the raging winds the ladies only played nine holes of golf. Monholland, Dasso and Lucille Rohman had the three low rounds with 43, 49 and 55, respectively.
The preceding Tuesday, March 13, again because of the nasty weather the ladies group cut their rounds short.
At the 2012 season kick-off on March 6, playing a scramble format, the low gross winners for the nine holes of play was the trio of Monholland, Currier and Wanda Stokes with a 1-over-par 37. The low net scramble team, with a handicap-aided 25, was comprised of Fleming, Rohman and Connie Davis.
