Hamilton wins River Creek Captain’s Cup

Barb Hamilton of Mariposa is the winner of the 2015 River Creek Women’s Golf Club Captain’s Cup. The annual tournament was held on May 12 and 14 with the women playing through the rain on the second day. Hamilton’s total net score was 145 for the two days.

Hamilton took up golf 10 years ago after watching her three sons play and seeing the enjoyment they got from the game. She retired last June from the Mariposa School District after 42 years with public education in California.

Coming in second was Midpines resident, Maggie Martin, with a two day net score of 150. Angela Peters and Sue Mejica, both of Ahwahnee, tied for third with net scores of 152. The tie was broken by choosing the lowest score on hole No. 1 in which Peters beat Mejica by one stroke.

Mountain area women interested in golf are encouraged to participate for a casual nine holes of golf with scoring optional any Saturday at 1 p.m. Pre-registration is not required. The group may move to an earlier time when the weather warms.

Players interested in more challenging golf are welcome to play with the River Creek Women’s Golf Club any Tuesday or Thursday.
