2006 12th Annual Beaver Island Ladies Golf Tournament

Ladies shine on shiny day

Saturday, July 22, opened as a beautiful day for a golf tournament, and the ladies who gathered at the Beaver Island Golf Course for their annual competition took advantage of the day, conducting their business under perfect conditions.

Thirty players were divided into eight teams for the scramble format, and, as has become the local tradition, opened play to a thunderous blast from course manager John Works, Jr.’s civil war cannon.

When the round had come to an end it was the team of Nel Wolsford, Ann Broder, Jane Wagner, and Floss Frank who claimed this year’s title with a solid round of 40.

Following play the competitors gathered for snacks provided by Whimsy, the awarding of first-place trophies for the winners, plus door prizes for each and every participant.

Two announcements accompanied the post-tournament activities. The first was that longtime organizers Ruth Kelly and Taffy Raphael were stepping down from that responsibility. The second was that the tournament would be moving into the capable hands of Wolsford, Annette Dashiell, and Doris Larson.

In closing out her run as co-chair of the event, Kelly said, “It’s been very enjoyable and everyone has been very cooperative. The golf course staff has been helpful and the course is in such great shape. This has been so much fun for everyone.”

Kelly also expressed her thanks to the individuals who donated prizes along with the following Island business who help make this annual event such a great success: Powers Do It Best Hardware, Livingstone Studio, Montaage, Whimsy, McDonough’s Market, Island Energies, Lakesports, Beaver Boat-tique, East Wind Spa, Seven Sisters, B.I. HIstorical Society, B.I. Golf Course, and Charlevoix State Bank.
