2010 Women's County Tournament

Going into our 3rd year with the new tournament format we are seeing the ladies compete and have a good time.  Our goal is to bring more and more ladies into the event as a tournament atmosphere, but also I good weekend to have fun and make some good memories.  Under the new format we had a GROSS and NET champion crowned for 2010.  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.  Sign up, bring a friend, tell a friend, and come have a good time at the Bay County Golf Course.

The following are the Champion Golfers of 2010:


2010 Women's Gross County Champion

Kris Popp

Round 181  (+7)

Round 275    (+1)

TOTAL 156  (+8)

Kris Popp what can I say!  She has proven to be the best women's golfer ever to compete at Bay County.  Last year Kris broke the all time record of total championships and this year she added number 9 to her career.  She is going to need a bigger mantle to hold all those trophies.  The amazing stat to her championships is she won all nine in a row...unbelievable!  Kris did make it interesting after shooting an opening round 81, but followed it up with a nice 75 on Sunday!  Great Job Kris!
