The Kick-Off Tournament for PebbleCreek Ladies Golf Association (PCLGA) was held on Nov. 12, on both Eagle’s Nest and Tuscany Falls East courses, with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start. Ladies in flights 1, 3, and 5 were dubbed the American Football Conference and played on Tuscany Falls East. Ladies in flights 2, 4, and 6 were dubbed the National Football Conference and played on Eagle’s Nest.
Both conferences played the game “quarterback sneak” (aka hero ball). The foursomes were able to use the quarterback’s net score once, twice, or not at all to calculate the two best net balls.
Ladies really enjoyed the fact that if they fumbled a shot, they each got an “instant replay” (mulligan). To add to the fun, each player received a “game changer” move (magic putt).
Following the rounds, there was a tailgate party in the Tuscany Ballroom at the “Pigskin Bar and Grill.” The room was decorated in a football theme, and with all the football gear that the players wore, it really felt like a tailgate party!
The menu included grilled beer bratwursts with all the fixings, red potato salad, brownies, plus a beverage station.
A special tribute was made to Mary Coon in honor of her celebrating the 75th anniversary of her sweet 16 birthday. Everyone sang the traditional “Happy Birthday” song, and then Chanca Morrell sang a birthday song that she wrote for Mary.
The three referees (tournament co-chairs)—Teresa Christianson, Karen Myers, and Cherrie Pierson—did an outstanding job planning this super-fun event. Thank you, ladies.
