5th annual ‘In the Pink’ tournament at Princeton Golf

Once again sunshine welcomed the ladies in pink to the 5th annual “In the Pink” 9 hole fun tournament.

Once again sunshine welcomed the ladies in pink to the 5th annual “In the Pink” 9 hole fun tournament.

Once again sunshine welcomed the ladies in pink to the 5th annual “In the Pink” 9  hole fun tournament Saturday September 8.  In keeping with the “fun day” theme of the tournament, prizes were awarded for entertaining, as well as skillful aspects of the game.

The ladies got into the spirit of the day by dressing in their modest to most outlandish pink outfits,  and this year there were a few cowgirls complete with pistols on the course.  If you happened to see a covered wagon pulled by two horses on the course you weren’t seeing things.   The stuffed horses and bridle came from the Horse Rescue people, and Elaine Harwood and her granddaughter Shandi decorated their golf cart like a covered wagon.  Shandi took top prize for best dressed pink lady in her western style dress.  It was very close, but her pink cowgirl boots were the tie breaker.

Eye catching bouquets of pink flowers adorned the banquet tables compliments of Sharon Blower.  Thanks Lloyd for setting the course up for us, and the greens keepers for a few pink flags they got from somewhere for us.  Many thanks to all those who donated prizes.Thanks to everyone who participated and to the others who joined us for lunch.  Lastly, thanks to Kathy Orser, who introduced “Pink Days” years ago, and who inspires us by still golfing at age 90.

This was, in all aspects, a really fun day.

Congratulations to the Tournament Low Gross winner, Sharleen Anderson, and the  Low Net winner, Jeannette Gerrard.  Winners were as follows:

Low Gross – Sharleen Anderson, Low Net – Jeannette Gerrard, Long Drive – Shandi Harwood, Short Drive – Phyllis Conway-Brownand and K.P.s – Shandi Harwood, Peggy Schwartz,and Pat Taylor.
