The Birchbank Ladies Golf Club held their closing event of the 2018 golf
season on Sunday, September 30th. Because of inclement weather the fun golf
competition was cancelled, although some of the ladies braved the weather
and played 18 holes anyway. Jeri Santarossa, Club Captain, welcomed the
ladies back in the afternoon for dinner and presentation of year-end prizes.
Edie Harasin was introduced and recognized for her many years as a member of
the ladies club. Trophies and prizes were awarded as follows: Crystal Cup
Match Play winner – Jeri Santarossa, runner-up – Dana Haas; B side winner –
Carol Babcock, B side runner-up – Joan Allegretto. The overall net winner
of the Quick Print Monthly trophy was Sharon Orlando with a 66.4 (net)
five-month average. Monthly winners were: May – Sharon Orlando (64R), June
– Jeri Santarossa (62), July – Flori Valentine (66R), August – Dana Haas
(64), September – Lynn Pachkowsky (62). The Ringer Board overall winner was
Flori Valentine, who ended the season with an eclectic score of 61 (retro).
Flight winners were: #1 – Maureen Elliott (61), #2 – Vivian Oh (67R), #3 –
Gerianne Hanik (69), #4 – Anita Cameron (73), #5 – Eilleen Gallamore (78).
Mary Lynn Trozzo was awarded the prize for Most Improved Eclectic score (50
strokes). Vivian Oh was presented with the trophy for the Most Improved
Handicap Factor (1.296 improvement factor). The ladies enjoyed a delicious
turkey dinner following the prize presentations. Although that was the
final scheduled event of the 2018 golf season, many of the ladies will be
seen swinging their clubs well into the month of October. Pictured in the
