WELL hosts 3-woman tourney Saturday, Aug. 26 was a beautiful day at The Bluffs for the Wednesday Evening Ladies League (WELL) 3-Woman Golf Tournament.
No fog, a nice breeze, and not much sun until later in the round made for pleasant playing conditions. The course was in great shape as usual � thanks to the ground crew for all their hard work this year. The new flowerbeds are very pretty and received lots of comments from the out-of-town golfers.
