The annual Ladies Invitational was once again a huge success despite the wet and chilly conditions. It certainly didn’t dampen the 74 ladies spirits as they toughed it out from the beginning to the end. Would like to thank Kelli Eagen, Jean Ackerman 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 hard work and effort goes into organizing and planning an event like this. It simply would not happen without dedicated people working their butts off to pull it off. And finally a special thanks to all the staff at Lake Ridge for their hard work in making this event a huge success. A lot of money was 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 – King / Koenig 62

1st Place Second Flight – Kephart / Brink 73

1st Place Third Flight – Kessler / Papstein 78

LADIES MATCH PLAY CHAMPIONSHIP

Rose King beat Nicolette Walk on the final hole of the Match Play Championship Match on Sunday to win the title of 2017 Ladies Match Play Champion. Congratulation to Rose for winning and Nicolette for being the runner up. They both played very well throughout the tournament. Want to also thank all the ladies who played in this year’s inaugural event. Look forward to doing this again next year.
