Niners play A Pink Ball tournament with a mulligan and a magic putt

The Niners had a Fun Tournament where they took turns playing with a Pink Ball in the order of their name on the scorecard. When the hole was done, they took the pink ball net score and the next best net score and added them together for a Team Score!  Added to that Mulligans were available along with a Magic Putt!  All the ladies had a great time playing a fun tournament and with the proceeds they were able to make a donation to the WNHGA Corenea Green Club for Junior Girls.

The winners were:  1st Place Team members were Mary Lou Dininger, Gloria Lawrence, Toni Vaughan and Carol Fraser. The 2nd Place Team members were Cheryle James, Barbara Buzdon, Marti Gatlin and Ann Petterle.  The 3rd Place Team members were Chris Pasek, Mary Silvis, Diana Gibson and Carol Randall.
