Womens Partnership Heads to Golfcrest Country Club
PEARLAND – The 21st annual Women’s Partnership is slated for April 8-9 at Golfcrest Country Club, and defending champions Camm Dougherty and Leslie McCallick are looking to win their third consecutive title and fourth overall. Golfcrest Country Club is hosting the Women’s partnership for the first time in the event’s history.
The Women’s Partnership is a two-player team format, in which both balls count on each hole and points are earned by each partner for each hole played. The 36-hole event is a net tournament that uses a point quota system based on players’ course handicaps, and the difference will be added or subtracted to the team’s overall score.
Points are accrued for each hole based on the score made. A double bogey nets a player one point, bogey is two points, par is three points, birdies are five points, eagles are eight points, double-eagle count for 10 points. A hole-in-one is worth 12 points.
Teams compete for the overall championship or their flight championship based on the combined handicap of each team. The 40-team field will be split into four flights, and the top three spots of each flight will be awarded as well as the overall champion of the tournament.
Golfcrest Country Club was originally built in southeast Houston in 1927 and moved to its current location in Pearland in 1971. The club is owned by its membership and managed by Sterling Golf. The tree-lined course sits on 200 wooded acres and was designed by Joseph S. Finger. The old school course will prove to be a tough test for the 2019 Women’s Partnership, as fairways traverse through trees and bodies of water.
Last year, the tournament was held at Fair Oaks Golf & Country Club on the Live Oak course, where Dougherty and McCallick teamed up to win the overall championship for the third time with 34.5 total points. The duo also won in 2017 at The Clubs of Prestonwood Hills Course and Corpus Christi Country Club in 2012.
Lyn Jones and Liza Robinson won the overall championship in 2016 at Crown Colony Country Club. Sissy Davies and Diane Dill won the 2015 overall championship at Horseshoe Bay Resort’s Ram Rock Course.
The first round of the Women’s Partnership will begin with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. on April 8. The final round is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on April 9. Once all the scores are in for 36 holes, awards will be handed out to the top finishers.
