Another major tournament is a wrap! The PebbleCreek Ladies Golf Association (PCLGA) honored super seniors (over age 75), seniors (ages 65-74), and let the juniors (under age 65) join in the fun during the annual Super Senior Golf Tournament held on Feb. 14 and 15 at Tuscany Falls. Despite the rain and cold over the two days, PCLGA ladies showed up!

The 2023 Super-Senior Gross Champion is Linda Nathan who shot an 84 and our Super-Senior Net Champion is Diana Hull who shot a net 68 in the individual Super-Senior stroke play event for players over age 75 during a 1-day tournament.

Peggy Steffan was named Senior Net Champion with her combined net score of 139 (66 net on day one and 73 net on day two).
