The annual Ladies Invitational was once again a huge success, despite the early morning rain. It certainly didn’t dampen the 72 ladies who played in this year’s event. Would like to thank Kelli Eagen, Jean Ackerman, Tracy Priefert and all the other ladies who helped organize this event and all the ladies who donated gift baskets and  raffle prizes. And let’s not forgot all the other  volunteers who gave their time hitting balls and helping make this tournament fun for all. A lot of money is raised for the Lake Ridge Ladies League Scholarship fund and it simply would not be possible without everyone working together. Look forward to hosting this tournament again next year. This year’s winners are as follows:

1st Place First Flight – Borgelt / Wyfels  63

1st Place Second Flight – Wagner / Wade 71

1st Place Third Flight – Reierson / Whitehead 77
