CCC Ladies’ League wraps up with banquet

The Carlinville Country Club Ladies’ League finished the season with an awards banquet and catered meal by Judy Carriker at the Keg Room on Sept. 12.

This year’s league was comprised of 14 two-person teams and two subs (Rhonda Priest, Jennifer Hamilton), playing a 14-week schedule of two seven-week halves. Returning this year were Kali (Crane) Boente, Marsha Crane, Janet Lippold, Della Sullivan, Cindy Tipps and Kathy Wiltshire. A tribute to former member Patt Heinz was made by the group, sharing golf stories about her. Heinz’ name will be added to the memorial bench.

Winning the first half was the team of Mary Kay Berry and Chris Nejmanowski, with Karen Bates and Carmen Trump winners of the second half. The teams battled for the league championship, with Berry and Nejmanowski defeating Bates and Trump.

In second place after the first half was the team of Nikki Harris and Shari Anderson. They matched wits with Mary Guthrie and Sherri Hallbauer, second place in the second half of the season, for third place overall. Harris and Anderson took third place with the win. All place winners were awarded gifts.

Others recognized for the season with gifts included: Trump, most improved handicap; Anderson, most points earned (second year in a row); Bates (low average putter); Tammie Hammann and Bates tied for the most pars and Stacey Rouse, low ringer card and most birdies.

Nine women shared the chip-in pot this year, which was worth $30 per week. An extra game was played each week and prizes were awarded to the winners. A weekly low net ball winner was awarded a new ball.

The ladies held their end-of-year handicap tournament Aug. 22 with 28 ladies participating. Low gross honors went to Trump (44) and Bates had second low gross (45). Low net was a tie between Trump and Wiltshire (33) and second low net went to Hallbauer (34). All ladies were presented gifts and the traveling trophy will be shared.

The league is open to all women CCC members who are 18 and older. League play is held from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Mondays, followed by food and socializing in the Keg Room. Contact Bates, Priest or Nejmanowski for more information.
