The Women’s Section Championship recently concluded at the stunning La Jolla Country Club with PGA Professional Alison Curdt claiming the title. Curdt of Wood Ranch Golf Club posted rounds of 72-75 for a four shot victory over the field.
Curdt went wire to wire and maintained her four shot lead from round one over her nearest competitor Julie Wells, PGA. During the two days Curdt tallied eight birdies on her scorecard, three more than any player in the field. Alison adds to her success from earlier in the season who was a participant in the 2015 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.
La Jolla Country Club, established in 1927, is positioned on top of the hills of La Jolla providing Pacific Ocean views throughout the round. It would be difficult to mention the William Bell design without mentioning the spectacular playing conditions, due in large part to Superintendent Dennis Fowler. From lush fairways to speedy greens, this was a perfect Championship setup. The kikuyu grass throughout the par 72 course made it play exceptionally long, but Curdt passed all tests that LJCC threw her way. The Southern California PGA and its Women’s division were thrilled to have the opportunity to spend two days at one of California’s premier facilities.
A very big thank you goes to La Jolla Country Club for hosting and supporting the Women’s Section Championship.
