Women’s golf club members compete in Ambrose Scramble

Posted

The ladies of the Discovery Bay Women’s Golf Club teed off Thursday, April 14 for the Ambrose Scramble competition at the golf course.

The Ambrose Scramble event entails a scramble competition where players all tee off, then move to the best positioned ball for their next shot. This format continues all the way to the green and holed out balls.

The scramble format generally requires that each player on the team has a minimum number (three) of her drives used to prevent one strong player from dominating the game from the tee. The scramble format is such that each individual player can contribute to the team’s overall performance by drawing on her unique golf skills.

Two well-matched teams of three players each competed with team handicaps of seven strokes. The winning team with a 73 gross (66 net) score were Barb Aldrich, Jodie Stone, and Wanda Synnestvedt. 

The second-place team with a 77 gross (70 net) score was Cindy Breed, Lynn Pierle, and Cindy Westwood.

The Discovery Bay Golf Course dried out since the previous week, and players found the course much improved over the last event a week ago.

Women golfers who would like to learn more about the club can contact captain Jane Guiltinan at 206-473-0909 or the golf course’s club pro shop at 360-385-0704.
