2015 WRDGA Senior Championship
What a beautiful day for golf except for the 5 minute squall that blew through near the end of the round.
It was an exciting competition with 2009 WRDGA Champion, Deb Wood and 2003 Senior Champion, Joan Rhodes posting rounds of 76.
A sudden death play off would resolve the tie. After two holes Deb Wood would seize the title of 2015 Senior Champion.
Congratulations to runner up Joan Rhodes (Clifton Springs) and our new WRDGA Senior Champion, Deb Wood. (Hickory Ridge)
