The moon was full and the cry of a lone coyote could be heard in the distance as 73 Quail Creek Lady Putters headed for the putting green. Each lady wore a glow necklace and bracelet. A small glow stick was affixed to each putter so the ladies would know which way to aim their balls. Glow sticks were inserted around each hole to guide the putters. Besides moonlight, the only other light allowed on the course was a flashlight that could only be turned on when the ladies were marking their scores.
Unfortunately, the Putters had to use a whiffle ball with a glow stick inserted instead of a regular golf ball. They quickly learned that whiffle balls do not behave the same way as a golf ball. Still, some ladies commented that they actually putted better in the dark than they do in full sunlight.
Despite the challenges, there were two ladies with a low net score. Ginny Hutcheson and Mary Anderson both scored 39. Team No. 13 with Sylvia Butler, Wendy Van Dyck, Peggy McGee, Julie Hazelton and Susan Jones came in first place with a weighted score of 172. The second place team, No. 3 with Putters Kathi Krieg, Pam Rodgers, Laurie Brown and Patty Kozma, scored 178.
