Women’s golf

DISCOVERY BAY — Discovery Bay Women’s Golf Club played a game called Criss Cross last week.

In this game, each player takes a combination of scores from the front and back nine holes, by pairing up each hole on the front nine with the corresponding hole on the back nine, then choosing the better of each pair. Therefore, only the best nine scores from either the front nine or the back nine are counted toward the total score, minus the handicap.

The winner was Dee Sweeney with a net score of 24. In second place was Donna Brown with a net 26.5; third was Dawn Ellis with 27.5; fourth was a tie between Jane Guiltinan and Elaine Bennet with 28; and fifth place was a three-way tie between Marianne Ott, Jane Peoples and Sherilyn Ulland. Peoples won the putting contest and Diane Solie came in second.

The Port Townsend women’s nine-hole golf club competed for the fewest putts during the round. Sweeney was the winner with 12 putts; Lynn Pierle came in second with 14 putts; Barb Aldrich was third with 15; Lynn Bidlke and Karen Michaud tied for fourth with 16; and Betty Gastfield was fifth with 18.
