2018 WLN Princess Tournament highlights

It was a great day with lots of excitement. It started with a close watch on the weather but by the second hole we were confident the rain would hold off. We had a record number of new players this year who all had a great time. Our caddies were outstanding! Bob, the traffic director, kept everyone in line. Pete was our MC and Larry A. was an excellent ball spotter. The photographer, Mike Waterhouse, got some fabulous pictures. Thank you all. You are the best. It was a spectacular end at hole 18 with Rose and Paula Saunders remaining in a close game. Winner was determined by one stroke. Thanks to all the sponsors, caddies, the countless volunteers and lastly the Princess Committee Carolyn Thomas, Jane Thompson, Janie Farnsworth, Mary Ornberg, Ellen Sullivan and Tina (social Diva) Hoffenberg. Again, congratulations to Miss Rose and her skilled caddie, Bill Moore for a job well done.
