Our 33rd Annual Stark County Women's Amateur Golf Association Team Tournament was held on Wednesday, July 21, at Skyland Pines Golf Club. We enjoyed blue skies and temperatures in the mid-70s.

Fifty-two golfers played in the tournament. Skyland Pines Denise Callahan shot a one-over par 73 to win medalist honors. Congress Lake's Gail Hackett finished in second place with 81, winning in a scorecard playoff with her teammate Shirley Vaughn. 

Congress Lake's winning ways continued with Sue Lyons shooting a low net score of 67 to claim low net winner, which was also won in a scorecard playoff with her teammate Julie Wichert.

Skyland Pines defended its team low gross title with 603, using the best seven scores, to win the low gross title.  Team members are Ellen Bruin, Jean Burnquist, Denise Callahan, Linda DeFine, Deb Fitz, Janet Frey-Shaheen, Loretta Gerber, Ann Godwin, Nancy Lagodich-Define, Dot Meola, Linda Miller, Louise (Zig) Myers, Gail Rownd, Theresa Stotler, Jan Todd, Jean Wackerly and Rita Welling.
