The 2015 Birmingham Chapter Championship is now history, and we have a new champion, Pia Todora, with a gross score of 85!
The weather was absolutely beautiful, although a little warm for some since the temperature reached 90. Rules Official Susan McDaniel got a little frustrated because of slow play, but there has to be a first time in tournament play for every member and we welcome the new members who participated. You will play faster by next year!
Deb Ramseur was in the last group of open players and towards the end of the front nine, she came upon this quite large snake stretched across the entire cart path, strange none of the earlier groups saw it. Hopefully Deb will send pictures of the "monster" to Nikki so you can all see it.
My thanks to Rules Official Susan McDaniel, scramble team markers Martha Graves and Karen Larsen, and roving spotter Eldon Bryant.
