Moses Lake (Wash.) Golf Club is hosting the 19th Washington State Women’s Best-Ball Championship, conducted by the Washington State Golf Association (WSGA).
The two-day championship is being held May 21-22, and includes many of the top women amateur golfers from Washington and Northern Idaho.
Highlighting the field are defending champions Kelly Gardner of Gig Harbor, Wash. and Kim Titus of Fox Island, Wash., who won this championship when it was held at Leavenworth (Wash.) Golf Club. Gardner and Titus also won this championship in 2014.
Also in the field is Karen Madison of East Wenatchee, who is again teaming with Patty Myers of Olympia. Last year, Madison and Myers lost in a one-hole playoff to Gardner and Titus. Madison was named the 2015 WSGA Senior Women’s Player of the Year, and won the 2016 WSGA Super Senior Women’s Amateur.
Another team to watch for is Leslie Folsom of Tukwila, Wash. and Victoria Fallgren of Spokane. Folsom has won this championship nine times with other partners, and Fallgren was selected the 2017 WSGA Women’s Mid-Amateur Player of the Year.
The format for the WSGA Women’s Best-Ball is 36-hole Four-Ball stroke play (gross and net). The field will be divided into flights based on team handicap. Play will commence with a 9:30 a.m. shotgun start each day.
