2014 Womens County Tournament

This is the 7th year with the new tournament format and are still encourageing all ladies of any playing level to participate.  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 2012.  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 2014:

2014 Women's Gross County Champion

Brandi Studer

Round 180  (+6)

Round 277  (+3)

TOTAL 157 (+9)


Brandi Studer made it a 3 Peat.  Brandi continues to prove she is the woman to beat in this area.  However it did not go down without a fight.  Nicole Skrzypczak a Northwood standout who has gotten better every year since she began playing in the event brought the tournament to within 1 shot during Sunday's round.  Brandi was able to hold her off down the stretch to take home the Gross Championship.



2014 Women's Net County Champion

Nicole Skrzypczak

Round 1 72  (-2)

Round 2  72  (-2)

  TOTAL 144    (-4)


Nicole Skrzypczak is building a nice little golf resume.  Ever since she graduated from Western High School her golf game has been on the rise.  She has gotten better each year and she has the scores to prove it.  With a tough battle this year with Brandi I can see a bright future and many more trophies to go on that mantle.  Great job Nicole!
