ARIZONA CITY — The game of the day on April 3 was a team event called the Jelly Bean Game.
Each team had a bag of jelly beans and each player was assigned a color. The color of the jelly bean drawn from the bag determined whose score was used on each hole. The scores were net scores, so the golfer chosen subtracted her handicap from her score.
The team of Paget Whitney, Sandy Freng, Cathy Chadsey and Priscilla Skoglund finished in first place with 64. Becky Hamilton, Valarie Beaton, Diane Glennie and Margaret McKim scored 67 to finish in second place.
Two teams scored 68 for a third-place tie. The team of Lisa Ross, Lou Ross, Jackie Colosso and Bonniejean Gualandi won the scorecard playoff.
Lou Ross won closest to the pin on No. 8, and Marty Losee had the best drive on No. 17.
