Creekmore Captures Seventh Womens Senior Stroke Play Title
GEORGETOWN – Carolyn Creekmore of Dallas scored a wire-to-wire victory at the 2017 Women’s Senior Stroke Play Championship on a sunny, breezy Wednesday at Berry Creek Country Club. Creekmore’s final round of 6-over-par 78 gave her a three-day total of 5-over 221. The nine-shot victory accounted for her seventh Women’s Senior Stroke Play Championship title.
Creekmore started her round with a par followed by three straight bogeys on a soggy course, as the clouds opened up the previous evening. Finishing with a 4-over par on the front side, she was able to birdie the 14th hole, a short par 4. Posting a final round 78 sealed her victory.
Camm Dougherty of Corpus Christi won Flight 1 by three stroke over Anna Schultz of Heath. Dougherty final round of 2-over par 74 included two birdies on the front nine and a double bogey on the long dog-leg right par 4. With a bogey on hole #10, Dougherty finished strong with eight consecutive pars.
The field of 70 ladies was divided into five flights after 36-holes. Nancy Beck of Dallas held off Becky Neal of Mansfield to seal a victory in the second flight with a three day total of 240. In Flight 3, Julia Sedate finished with a three day total of 256 to win by two strokes over Chris Meadows of Plano. Sara Nelson of Plano won by one stroke with a three day total of 268 to win over Nannette Wheelis of Waco. Rounding out the tournament in Flight 5, Berry Creek Country Club Member Dede Connor won by five shots over Katherine Biggs of Houston.
Also, Creekmore took home the Super Senior Award (65 – 71 years of age) and Nannette Wheelis of Waco won the Super Senior (71 years of age and older).
This is the first year Berry Creek Country Club has held the Women’s Senior Stroke Play Championship. The 18-hole facility is nestled on what was once Logan Ranch. The course features water on seven holes, strategically placed bunkers, and undulated Bermuda grass greens, making it a challenging and fun layout that will test the skills of the senior players in Texas.
The final event in this year’s women’s competitions is the Women’s Texas Pinehurst, which will be contested on November 6 – 7 at Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort in Boerne.
The Texas Golf Association would also like to thank the membership, maintenance, food & beverage and professional staff at Berry Creek Country Club for hosting this year’s Championship. For complete results, please click here.
