Catalina Island Women's Golf Club

Catalina Island Women's Golf Club has been busy this Fall. The Big Break Avalon Golf Tournament  and the Halloween Scramble were held in October followed by A Jewel of a Tournament in November.

The Big Break Avalon Golf Tournament comprises of a point system for each hole. The winners were Ellen Guion and Elena Maria with a tie. Lunch followed at The Metropole Café.

Ten members of the Catalina Island Women's Golf Club dressed in costume to play a Halloween scramble with ghostly ties on Thursday, October 26. Two teams tied for first place, one team aided by a "ghost"--where the team with 3 players rotated an extra shot at each hole. The 4-man team of Elena Maria, Dolly Burgess, Pat Hoefs, and Betty Tejeda tied with the ghost team of Lee Black, Alison Osinski, and Judy Grear. Both teams were one over. Club members were joined at lunch at Steve's Steak and Seafood with former members including Marty Ashleigh and Phyllis Lorenz. Sue Bray provided fantastic decorations and homemade desserts.

November 9 saw the Catalina Women's Golf Club contesting for "jewels" in two flights. In past years, this tournament gave real jewels as prizes for the winners. Winners would have their jewels added to a pendant each year. This year, winners of each flight shared cash awards and may use their awards for jewels if they wish. In the white flight, the first place winner was Elena Maria with first low gross score. Nancy Pinizzotto was first low net, with her sister Ellen Guion coming in second low net. With the red flight, Val Schafer came in first with low gross and Pat Hoefs took low net. Eleven players enjoyed lunch at the Blue Water Avalon where players shared stories of past Jewel tournaments and showed gold jewelry with various stones and an island motif.
