Breakfast and Registration 7:30 AM
With temps in the low 90’s, this year’s 3rd Annual Ladies Junior-Am was a hot one! Early on Tuesday morning, May 28, 70 female golfers of varied experience gathered at English Turn Golf and Country Club to play golf for a good cause. All proceeds from The First Tee 3rd Annual Ladies Junior-Am Sponsored by Fidelity Bank and Presented by Wyndham Garden Baronne Plaza benefit our after-school and summer camp programs targeting female participants. As the ladies registered, they enjoyed cheese grits from Fidelity Bank, fresh fruit, mini donuts, and coffee service donated by Community Coffee.
With the heat, we were lucky to have the support of Coca Cola, who provided a variety of on-course beverages, and Fidelity Bank, who served the ever popular chicken wraps, Truly Spiked and Sparkling, and their signature Purple Drink. Also on course were Village Inn muffulettas and Morrow’s cold shrimp pasta salad.
The Award Luncheon following the Tournament also offered respite from the heat. The ladies gathered in one of English Turn’s beautiful ballrooms for lunch, awards, and a raffle featuring more than 30 items. Lunch included chicken and sausage jambalaya, smoked salmon, gyro, with pita and all the trimmings from Down the Hatch, a spinach salad from Peppermill, cold cut sandwiches form Katie’s, Bundtinis from Nothing Bundt Cakes, and cupcakes from Cake by the #Pound. The ladies were also treated to a wine tasting by Scout and Cellar.
This year’s winning team featured a trio of former LSU Women’s Golf players Lindy Wertz, Meredith Duncan, and Erin Corbett. They were joined by current Loyola Women’s Golf team member and The First Tee Alum, Lori Launey.
We would like to thank Fidelity Bank for their 3rd year as Title Sponsor of this event. We would also like to thank new Presenting Sponsor Wyndham Garden Baronne Plaza for coming on board to make our tournament a huge success.
