Rohman, Laverman ladies golf group winners

Showing their deft touch on two of the shorter par-3 holes, Lucille Rohman and Marjean Laverman, both of Sunnyside, claimed top honors this past Tuesday in Black Rock Creek Golf Course ladies play.

Play of the day was "Closest to the Pin" on holes 9 and 12, two of the shorter par-3's on the course.

Rohman stuck her tee shot just seven feet, one inch from the cup on No. 9 to win closest to the pin honors on that hole. Laverman's ball came to rest 20 feet, 7 inches from the flagstick on No. 12, giving her KP honors there.

The low scorer on Tuesday for the 18 holes of play was Sunnyside's Carol Monholland. She carded a 9-over-par 81. The next three lowest rounds were 97, 99 and 100, claimed by Wanda Stokes of Sunnyside, Sharon teVelde of Sunnyside and Marlana Williams of Zillah, respectively.

Net scoring honors this past Tuesday (actual score minus handicap) went to Rohman, who posted a handicap-aided 73. Laverman and Rose Fleming of Sunnyside carded net rounds of 76 and 77, respectively.

The ladies group collectively knocked down three birdies on the day...two by Monholland on No. 3 and No. 16, and one by Stokes on the par-3, 17th hole.

Claiming chip-in shots from off the green last Tuesday were teVelde on No. 10, Laverman on No. 18 and Sunnyside's Connie Davis on No. 9.

Next Tuesday, May 1, the local ladies golf group will be hosting an Inter-Valley competition. Up to 70 golfers from throughout the Yakima Valley are expected to compete at the Sunnyside-area course.
