Twenty-nine golfers hit the links at the 108 Golf Resort for the two-day 108 Ladies 2013 Club Championship on Aug. 24-25.

When it was all said and done, Deb Case was the overall low-gross winner and Kathy Reid was overall low-net winner.

After day 1, Case and Cathy Waite were tied for top spot, having both shot an 88, while Heather Matsuda was in second with a 90 on her scorecard. All three shot well and held on during day 2 and finished first, second and third respectively.

Case says it was a very tight competition throughout the 36 holes.

“I was one up going into the 18th on Sunday and held onto the lead.”

Noting she shot 138 over the two-day event, low-net winner Reid says she has a high handicap because she is “fairly new” to the game. She adds she took a lesson the week before the championship and believes it helped her a lot.

“[The weekend] went very well. I was with a great group of ladies who were very relaxed and I felt relaxed, too. I tied my very best game I’ve ever played out there.”

As for the best weapons in her bag, Reid says it was her driver and her putter was “pretty good, too.”

Waite scored the only eagle in the tournament. Matsuda made two birdies on Saturday and two more on Sunday. Case made one birdie each day. Annie McKave also knocked a birdie each day. Judy Scarrow and Janet Roux made one on Saturday. Patsy Wilkinson hit one Sunday and so did Wendy Foster.

The golfers were grouped in three flights and closest-to-the-pin (KP) and long-drive competitions were also part of the action.

Saturday’s KP winners were Case (first flight) and Pauline Weigelt (second flight). Sunday’s KP winners were Matsuda (first flight), Corrine French (second flight) and Foster (third flight).

Saturday’s long-drive winners were Matsuda (first flight), Ann Pinkney (second flight) Weigelt (third flight). Long-drive winners on Sunday were Scarrow (first flight), Pinkney (second flight) and Reid (third flight).
