Two Portland teams headed to Cup Finals
The Portland Chapter is sending a strong contingent of 16 players to the LPGA Amateur Cup in Horseshoe Bay, Texas, on Nov. 2-3, after a hard-fought Pacific Qualifier.

Five teams were tied with a total of 7 out of a possible 12 points after 4-ball on Sept. 8 and singles matches on Sept. 9. It was a tense couple hours before "quality of wins" were all tabulated, but Portland's Green Gang, National Champions in 2015, prevailed again, placing 2nd. The Portland Pinot Putters took the fourth and final spot.

The Seattle Tee Hawks (1st) and Emerald City TeeHawks (3rd) round out the teams advancing from match play at Heron Lakes-Greenback.

Great job, also, by Portland's Puttlandia, which finished 8th, and the rest of the 13 teams.

Mystery Trip lives up to name with a sell-out

The 3rd Annual Mystery Bus Trip took 52 LPGA Amateur Golf Association-Portland members and guests to Mallard Creek Golf & RV Resort in Lebanon. We trundled onto the bus at the crack of dawn, abuzz with excitement and guesses about our secret destination. Only four got it right: Nancy DeLand, Scooby Budeau, Jean Poling and Linda Erickson. Once at the course, we grabbed our box lunches and headed out for a shotgun start. Closest to the Pin on the five par-3s were Graciela Teofield, Danielle Tollefson, Judith Sachs, Sue McFadden and Kathleen Wall. Organizer Terrie Marshall kept us entertained on the ride to and from with Golf Trivia. Winners who knew the most answers were Lily Ravencraft and Susan Weiner. It was a great trip and Terrie says she's already planning next year's adventure! Click here for more photos.
