The main feature of Sept. 25-26, the last days of the Mirror Lake Ladies’ 2019 season was “Ace of Aces,” in which the 5 players who won “Ace of the Month” during the 2019 season compete for the ultimate title of “Ace of Aces.” The five competitors this year were Blanche Studer, Carrie Figgins, Therese Helmer, Karen English, and Gerry Ann Howlett. After some terrific golf from these fine competitors, Gerry Ann Howlett emerged the winner of the title of “Ace of Aces,” 2019. Congratulations Gerry Ann!
In addition to “Ace of Aces,” game of the day for Wednesday morning players was “Most 7’s,” in which the player scoring the most sevens on the first 9 holes wins the prize. The winners of the most sevens were Ruth Ann Wilson and Ada Gardiner who tied with 3 each. Other winners were Therese Helmer for Low Gross with 49, and Etta Mae Schneurle and Ada Gardiner who tied for Low Net with 37 each. Etta Mae also had a chip in on Hole #1 and won for low putts with an astonishing 11! For the Tuesday evening players, Julie Williams won Low Gross with 40 (including a birdie on Hole #2;) and Gerry Ann Howlett won Low Net (36) and Low Putts.
While the Mirror Lake Ladies’ 2019 golf season is officially over, the final golf day did not happen until Wednesday morning, Oct. 2, with the closing day “Impossible Open” and Awards Banquet in the evening. For the Impossible Open, Manager Ralph Lotspeich re-arranged the Mirror Lake Golf Course tee boxes and pin placements in particularly challenging placements for the ladies’ “final exam” of golf. The results of the intrepid lady golfer participants’ best efforts and of the Awards Banquet will be reported next week.
