On a clear and warm day, Alta Mesa Golf Club welcomed the SWSGA's 88 players to a well conditioned course right after overseeding.  

The day was highlighted by new member Tim Smith who aced the Alta Mesa 12th hole. Tim also was closest on #5. His sharp shooting earned him $906 in the hole in one pot along with the only gross skin of $304 and half the net pot for another $152. Quite a day!!! The other CTP's were earned by Brian Pavlet on #7 and Tim Blau on #17. This is the first Closest to the pin contest since the spring and it was great to have Murphy's Law Irish pub sponsoring this fun competition. The other half of the net skin pot was won by Julian Tatka on #6.

Professional Randy Wittig led all scorers along with his team of Amateurs with a 66. Randy's team consisted of Amateurs Jeff Goettsche, Rich Danis and Jim Howie who finished 3 shots clear of 2nd place with a fine 123 in the 1 gross, 1 net format. It took a score of 131 to make the prize list.  Professional Gerry Norquist and Amateur Ray Plewa were 2 shots back with 68's. It took a score of 72 to cash in the individual cash game and net 70 to cash in the net game. Greg Lynn led all net scores with a fine 66.


CardinaleWay Mazda and Phil Kerr were there again to sponsor our on-course refreshments. Thank you Phil!!
