After venturing just outside of Madison for the Spring Pro-Ladies in early June, it was time for the Milwaukee area to take their turn in hosting the other annual Pro-Ladies event on Monday. The event once again featured a sold out field of twenty-four fivesomes, with teams participating from throughout the Wisconsin Section. Teams from as far as St. Germain made the trip down to enjoy some fun at The Legend at Merrill Hills.
Not only did the players get to enjoy a nicely conditioned golf course, they got the chance to enjoy it with pristine weather. With that being said the it was perfect day for scoring.
Taking advantage of the ideal day was a fivesome representing Westmoor Country Club. PGA Teaching Professional Molly Braid teamed up with Peggy Hauser, Maggie Leef, Georgeanne Carleton and Pat Locante to take home the title. The fivesome piled up the twenty net birdies and two net eagles on their way to a 20-under-par 124 score. The impressive two net best ball score was good enough to deliver them a four shot win. It also marked the second time in the past three years that a group from Westmoor CC was able to be victorious at the Summer Pro-Ladies.
Earning the low professional victory was Michael Arsenault of Geneva National Resort and Club. The assistant professional carded a 3-under-par 69 for a two shot win over Charlie Brown. For Brown he may have come up short in the low professional event, but his score good enough to take home the low senior professional contest.
A big thank you goes out to everyone at The Legend at Merrill Hills for being a gracious host. As always the club provided the players with a great venue and first class service. The Legend Clubs showed their support by not only hosting, but also having four teams tee it up.
