Jen's team wins again
Portland players advance to Finals
Congratulations to our Portland winners who are advancing to the LPGA Amateur Championship Finals Oct. 12-13 at the Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor, Fla. 

Beth Madden (top) was 1st Low Gross in the Second Flight with a 93. The scramble team of Jen Piper (captain), Esther Moe, Cyndi Farrell and Beverly Howard (left-to-right in photo) took 1st with a net 66. Great job, too, by all of the Portland players and especially the Portland volunteers, who hosted the Aug. 4 district Semi-Final at the OGA Golf Course in Woodburn. Everyone told us they enjoyed the reception and awards banquet, the goody bags and the cart snacks for a hot day. Thanks to OGA for getting the course in great shape and having everything ready to go for us, and to rules officials Rusty Beckel and Pete Scholz. A special kudos to Portland's very own Jeanne Biggerstaff and Terrie Marshall, joined by Orange County member Linda Kueny, who got the event set up and kept it running smoothly as the on-site Tournament Operations team.

What would you do? Gail Hand of Portland and Halley Kramer of Central Oregon played follow the leader during the Semi-Final, with their balls touching in a bunker! They marked the front one, hit away, raked and hit the second.

With temperatures reaching into the high 90s, Beth Madden turned in a cool 85, to become Chapter Champion with Low Gross of the Field. Another of the 2nd Flight competitors, June Hall, earned honors with a 67, for Low Net of the Field. Others earning a spot in the Aug. 4 Pacific Northwest District Semi-Final at OGA were: First Flight, Gail Hand; Third Flight, Holly Danks (low gross) and Linda Erickson (low net); and Fourth Flight, Michelle Davidson (low gross) and Sue Meade (low net).

MYSTERY BUS TRIP 2018

The 3rd Annual Mystery Bus Trip ended up at Mallard Creek Golf in Lebanon, where (from left) Pam Frisby, Jean Poling, Ann Chapman and Dori Hamilton relax after their round.

                                                                           
Mystery Trip lives up to name with a sell-out

The 3rd Annual Mystery Bus Trip took 52 LPGA Amateur Golf Association-Portland members and guests to Mallard Creek Golf & RV Resort in Lebanon. We trundled onto the bus at the crack of dawn, abuzz with excitement and guesses about our secret destination. Only four got it right: Nancy DeLand, Scooby Budeau, Jean Poling and Linda Erickson. Once at the course, we grabbed our box lunches and headed out for a shotgun start. Closest to the Pin on the five par-3s were Graciela Teofield, Danielle Tollefson, Judith Sachs, Sue McFadden and Kathleen Wall. Organizer Terrie Marshall kept us entertained on the ride to and from with Golf Trivia. Winners who knew the most answers were Lily Ravencraft and Susan Weiner. It was a great trip and Terrie says she's already planning next year's adventure! Click here for more photos.
