2009 Women's County Tournament

Going into our 2nd year with the new tournament format we are seeing progress.  We had a record 18 ladies sign up and play in this year's event.  We would like to continue that trend so thank you all who played this year and don't forget to bring a friend in 2010.  Under the new format we had a GROSS and NET champion crowned for 2009.  For those that do not know what this means let me explain. 

Lets say you average 110 for 18 holes, with our new division if you go out and shoot 110 and we apply your handicap (38 in this case) your NET score is 72.  That's right you shot even par.  This allows everyone to play from a level playing field.  To sum it up, we have 2 divisions gross and net.  You will be placed in whatever division you place the highest in.  It's a win-win combination.

Mother Nature tried to dampen our event this year by washing out Saturday's round, but we were able to get in 27 holes on Sunday to determine our Champions.  Getting out and playing with the girls, throw in a little competition, but most important have a great time is our goal at the Bay County Golf Course. 

The following are the Champion Golfers of 2009:
