WILLIAMS LADIES GOLF
Williams Ladies Golf Spectacular Invitational of the Year was held for women golfers throughout the Tri-State Area and beyond. As the players drove up Williams Drive, Weirton, the first notice was a gigantic billboard welcoming players to the themed "20,000 (Golf) Leagues Under the Sea" event.
Continuing up the drive, cars were directed to the 20-foot high octopus- lined registration entrance where they were greeted by Vi Stein and Alicia Myers to receive individual booklets listing events of the day and the names of team members and their club name.
A breakfast featuring a variety of items was available with tables decorated with fish netting, sea shells, floating fish and sparkling stones.
Players also could buy mulligans and a ticket on sharing a "Pot of Gold," which would be drawn following golf with the "gold" being divided into two prizes. In charge of this were Rita Wickham, treasurer, and Sue Sakara rules chairman.
Karen Edwards served as event photographer assisted by Toni Vosseler. Willaims Pro Dean DiBerardino and Assistant Pro Jason Smoljanovich announced and explained the "Game of the Day," which was a modified shamble. Each team would go to their longest drive, then play their own ball into the cup. The team would then count the three best balls of four, and each player had to have at least two drives during the 18-hole event. The local rule was explained for hole No. 12, which is over water.
Refreshments were served at the turn.
Following play, teams assembled in the main ball room where white tablecloths were overlayed with seafoam satin luncheon cloths; table center- pieces were tall glass tumblers with small fish bowls and "betta" fish. Bubbles were hanging from the chandeliers in clear and aqua colors along with a giant inflated whale swimming across the ceiling. Netting, sea shells and treasure chests decorated the prize table where individual team prizes consisted of burlap bags tied up "gold colored one dollar coins" to go to each team winning member. The bags were held in decorated treasure chests for each winning team.
President Linda Staffilino greeted the women with a thank-you for attending from more than 30 clubs. Staffilino also thanked the Williams staff; Executive Chef Domenic Pulice; event coordinator, Aubrey Koscevic; co-chair Vosseler, along with Priscilla Mavrich, breakfast table chair, Jennie Epifano, Jerry Chambers, Erikka Buracchio, Phyillis Phillips, Karen Pitchok and Maureen Dumbaugh.
