Another fun season for the Duran Women’s Golf Association culminated at their recent awards luncheon.

The group, which started out in 2006 with 16 members, now boasts 37. The league runs from November through April, though a number of members continue to play together throughout the summer.

President Ann Pierce described the league as “friendly, yet competitive.” It’s open to all female golfers. A GHN handicap is required, but it can be purchased through Duran if needed.

Annual dues are currently $46, which covers all weekly prize money and $1 toward the hole-in-one fund. Most weeks are based on individual stroke play, but team games are played once a month.

League officers included president Pierce, vice-president Terri King, treasurer Jo Ann Ober and secretary Hilda Bokos.

The league recognized its Special Category prize winners at its luncheon.

Pierce was honored for having the Lowest Average Gross Score. The Lowest Average Net Score went to Sally Soutter.

Barbara Black had the Lowest Gross Score, while the prize for the Lowest Net Score went to Bonnie Brown.

It was just the start of a great day for Black, who also won for Most Birdie and Most Pars.

The prize for Most Bogies went to Shel McAnulty.

There were three prizes for Most Improved based on flight level. Black won it for Flight A, while McAnulty was the winner in Flight B and Brown took the Flight C honors.

There was a tie for the Year-long Ringer Winner between Pierce and Black.
