The Oak Tree Women’s Golf Club held its annual President’s Cup and Vice President’s Cup Tournament on June 18-19, while doing their best to maintain social distancing, as they have done since the pandemic and quarantine started.
The overall winners for each cup were the lowest cumulative net score over the two days of competition. The President’s Cup was for those playing 18 holes each day, while the Vice President’s Cup was for ladies who played 9 holes each day.
The 2020 President’s Cup winner is Diane Griffin, current club president, who shot a net 69 and 72 for a total of 141 on the Par 73 course. The 2020 Vice President’s Cup winner went to Donna Zanutto with daily scores of 39 and 35 for a total of 74 net.
In the 1st Flight of the President’s Cup, Meg Prior took Low Gross (166) and Tammy Gore won Low Net (152). For the 2nd Flight Low Gross went to Connie Shobe (218) while Monique Herbst earned Low Net (150). For the Vice President’s Cup, the Low Gross winner was Brenda McMullen with a 116; Marie Scammon won Low Net with a 75.
The winners were announced at a delicious patio luncheon held at the home of Joy and Ric Webber. Throughout the pandemic, this club has continued to play their weekly playdays and looked forward to playing the first tournament for this year. The club has had to cancel two major tournaments already: their Couples Tournament, usually held in early June, and their infamous Invitational held the first Wednesday in August. Ladies from all over Kern County and beyond always look forward to the Invitational with a great format, lots of prizes and gifts, great food and especially the beautiful weather, which is much cooler than in the valley.
The club is still hoping to hold the Play 4 P.I.N.K. tournament in September. We still look forward to playing our club’s Eclectic, Club Championship and Senior Club Championship this year and hope all of next year’s tournaments are a go.
