Golfers were threatened with black clouds on June 11, but a few sprinkles did not damper their spirits for the Glacier Greens Ladies Open Tournament.
In an exciting playoff starting on hole 15 then moving to 16, Shelly Stouffer beat Christina Proteau to win the overall gross with a low score of 75 sponsored by Thrifty Foods.
Kathy Allison from Gold River shot a great round to win the overall net of 63 sponsored by Signature Wines.
