Janet Smith wins Ladies Club Championship, Sherrye Morrison and Nancy Beyerlin tie for net


August 1, 2018


Janet Smith captured the Ladies Club Championship on July 21 and 22 at the Goldendale Golf Club. Smith finished with a two-day, 36 hole gross total of 190, shooting a 93 on the Saturday and a 97 on Sunday.

A week before the men took to the course to see who Goldendale's top golfers are, it was the women who had the nine holes at the Goldendale Golf Club to themselves at the annual Ladies Club Championships.

Two weeks ago on July 21 and 22, Janet Smith turned in an impressive couple of rounds to emerge as the Ladies Club Champion, as one of just two golfers who finished both Saturday and Sunday with less than 100 strokes.

Smith captured the club championship with a gross of 190 after shooting a 93 on the opening 18 holes and following with a 97 on the last day. She held off Nancy Beyerlin, who also shot under 100 on both days.

Beyerlin shot a 99 Saturday and finished with 98 strokes Sunday for 107 to finish runner-up.

Dorothy Miller, with a 101 on Saturday and 105 on Sunday, took third with a gross total of 206 and finished one stroke higher than Sherrye Morrison. Morrison shot her best round Saturday with a 102 and followed it up with a 105 on Sunday for a 207 total.

Donna Bliss and Donna Silen both followed with a 36 hole total of 219. Silen opened Saturday's 18 holes with a 106 and finished Sunday at 113, while Bliss shot a 114 Saturday and ended Sunday's round of 18 at 105.

For the net, which is the total score after handicap strokes have been deducted, Beyerlin and Morrison finished as Co Net Champions after their adjusted scores matched at 143.

After Beyerlin and Morrison tied for the top net score, Miller and Smith both followed with rounds of 146, Bliss finished at 147 strokes, and Silen came in at 151 strokes.

There also was a handful of challenges for the ladies on a number of the holes each day.

Smith, along with finishing as the Ladies Club Champion, knocked in the longest putt on Sunday which was a challenge on hole No. 1. Miller won the challenge on Saturday.

There were also four holes that had closest to the pin challenges, which went to whoever's ball landed closest to the hole after teeing off.

Silen was accurate on both days, finishing eight and a half feet from the hole on No. 4 on Saturday, and finishing 4 feet, 5.5 inches from the same hole on Sunday.

Silen again won on Saturday for the challenge on hole No. 9, where her ball landed 6 feet, 2 inches from the hole.

Sunday's KP challenge on No. 9 went to Beyerlin, who drove her ball on the par 3 hole within 34 inches of the pin.
