Women golfers get back in the swing of things with ‘Tombstone’

Posted

Eleven women from the Discovery Bay Golf Club gathered recently for a game of “Tombstone” at the golf course in late April.

Tombstone involves participants adding their handicap score to a golf course’s par — the Discovery Bay Golf Course is a par-72 — for a final number indicating how many strokes a golfer has on the course before they must “die” and plant a tombstone where they ended up. The last golfer standing wins the game.

An exciting Thursday game of Tombstone saw nine “RIPs” out of the 11 competitors before Hole 17, as only two women remained alive. 

Cindy Breed and Lynn Pierle had an equal number of strokes left (three) with Breed’s ball lying slightly closer to the green, narrowly defeating Pierle. 

Breed took the gold, followed by Pierle in second, Jane Guiltinan in third at Hole 16, and Barb Aldrich who “gave up the ghost” on Hole 15, she said, to earn the fourth-place spot. 

Plenty of laughter was shared between the golfers during and after a competitive round of Tombstone. With the idilic weather of May finally here, the Disco Bay Women’s Golf Club invites any interested women to join them in a round of fun, competitive golfing at the course.

To learn about the club, join, and/or find out about tee times, call the golf course’s pro shop at 360-385-0704.
