The Loch March Golf & Country Club in Ottawa hosted the Ottawa Valley Golf Association’s Women’s 4 Ball on Tuesday, June 14. The competitors from OVGA Member Clubs were treated to a well-conditioned golf course and a sunny, warm day.
Since 1972, teams of two from OVGA Member Clubs have played for the 50th Anniversary trophies for “A” and “B” flights and a “C” flight and a 60th Anniversary trophy was added in 1982.
In “A” Flight play, the Hylands Golf Club team of Judy Collins and Diane Dolan were first off the tee and finished first in the field with their best-ball score of 75 on the par 72 course. Tied for second place with scores of 77 were the Mississippi Golf Club team of Lila James and Colleen Seabrook along with the Rideau View Golf Club duo of Lyne Leclerc and Susan Pearl.
The Lombard Glen Golf & Country Club Team of Gayle Turcotte and Leanne Watt posted a score of 83 in winning the “B” flight. Tied for 2nd place with scores of 84 were the Rideau View Team of Sandra Chisholm and Nancy Taylor and the team of Diana Wilhelm from Eagle Creek and her partner Lorraine Ridgeway from Carleton Golf & Yacht Club.
Judy Read and Diane Smith from Hylands Golf Club were winners in “C” flight with their score of 90. In second place with their score of 91 was the Hylands Team of Stephanie Holland and Lois McLeod. Third place went to the Glen Mar Gold & Country Club Team of Gisele Savoie and Heather Young with their score of 92.
