Congratulations SNGABW Team Play
The BW team had another successful season going undefeated and taking first place in the Blue Division for Overall. It was a season where we endured snow, rain, dust, wind, injuries and tough opponents. We met wonderful women from other teams, we banded together as a team to get the job done, we became better golfers and made many memorable memories. I will never forget the look on Nicole’s face when I told her she had a shot out of the water. The video of Nicole hitting the ball out of the water is posted on the website.
To this amazing team, I just want to say, it has been an absolute joy and an honor to be your captain for the past 3 years. To Margie, my co-captain, I would not do this without you! Oh yeah, apparently we are doing this again in 2024 😊.
Thank you to Kim Bazelle, Linda Berardo, Brittany Bronson, Gabriele Buonacorsi, Margie Cashwell, Kathy Faber, Karen Huckabay, Audrey Jordan, Danielle Kaylor, Nancy Lauback, Nicole Nolan, Donna Roush, Theresa Summers and Lisa Wiley – your 2023 BW team – for making this team great.
If you are interested in playing and or want more information about team play, please contact anyone on the team for more information.

The 2023 BW team had another successful season. With the last match of the regular season against Painted Desert on Tuesday, May 23, the team remains undefeated for 3 seasons. Eight of the team members traveled to Mesquite Monday night and enjoyed a delicious meal together to get ready for a season ending match the next day. On the line was our 26-0-1 record and the team came ready to battle for another win.
The team took 20.5 points against Painted Desert, however, the matches were closer than the score reflects. The match of Team 1, Margie and Christine, was tight until they had back to back birdies on the front nine. Going to the back nine, they continued to win holes and sealed 5 ½ points by winning the last hole. Team 2, Karen and Linda, with a birdie and 10 pars were able to take 6 points. Team 3, Kathy and Donna, had fun playing against a BW member and with 7 pars they were able to add 5 ½ points to the team total. Team 4, Lisa and Nancy, “ham and egged” it all match and with 6 pars added 3 ½ points.
The stellar play by all 15 team members throughout the season has crowned us Blue Division Overall Winners once again. The Overall Champion will be determined on June 8 at Boulder Creek against a very tough team, Boulder City Rock Steady. This will be the third year in a row we will battle BC for Overall Champion.
The 2023 BW team includes: Kim Bazelle, Linda Berardo, Brittany Bronson, Gabriele Bounacorsi, Margie Cashwell, Kathy Faber, Karen Huckabay, Audrey Jordan, Danielle Kaylor, Nancy Lauback, Nicole Nolan, Donna Roush, Christine Soscia, Theresa Summers, Lisa Wiley.

It wasn’t easy but the team rose to the occasion once again and got it done against a tough Red Rock
team. With today’s win, the team gets closer to sealing another winning season. Team 1, Brittany and Danielle, had to give up 7 strokes and battled the whole match and in the end split points, 3-3. Team 2, Gabriele and Margie, won the first hole and never looked back. Two birdies by Gabriele and 7 pars by Margie led to taking all 6 points. Team 3, Theresa and Nicole, remained steady with a birdie by Theresa and 6 pars by Nicole added 4 points to the total. Team 4, Lisa and Nancy, gave up 5 strokes and managed to take 1 ½ points for a team total of 14 ½ points.
There is one more match in the season. We have a 16 ½ point lead over the next contender. The team needs to take 10 ½ points in the next match to end the season undefeated.Hats off to this amazing team. While the roster isn’t big, it’s mighty and when asked to play, every
player is ready to give it their best. I am so honored to have a great co-captain, Margie Cashwell, and the most wonderful women on this team. If you are interested in team play, please reach out to Margie, myself or any member of the team.

Highly anticipated match of the season…………………
As expected, our match on 4/24 against a tough Canyon Gate team was tough, competitive and a lot of fun. Going into the match, we held an eleven point lead for first place overall. The team needed to play well and take as many points as possible. We knew we were going to have to fight for every point as the matches were very even. Team 1, Danielle Kaylor and Margie Cashwell, got off to a slow start but went to the back 9 with fire. They recorded 1 birdie and 15 pars to take 4 points. Nicole Nolan, team 2, along with playing partner Christine Soscia, took off her socks and shoes and hit a ball out of the water to 10 feet from the pin. With 3 birdies and 13 pars, sinking a long putt on 9 to win the hole and parring the last hole to win the hole, team 2 took 4 points. Team 3, Lisa Wiley and Kathy Faber, took their match down to the last hole and with a par secured 4 points for the team. Congrats on a birdie and 6 pars team 3. Team 4, Donna Roush and Nancy Lauback, ran into a team that was sinking 30 foot putts all day. With a birdie and 8 pars they took half a point to lead the team to a total of 12 1/2 points. We remain 11 points ahead of second for overall with two matches to go.
Our next match is May 8 against second place overall, Red Rock. If the team continues to do well, they should secure a spot in the championship round.
Team play is so exciting, you meet the most wonderful people, develop lasting friendships and have a ton of fun. If you are interested in learning and or playing on the team, please reach out to Margie Cashwell, Christine Soscia or any of the many team members. All handicaps are welcome, you are not required to play every match and, if possible, you will always play with a veteran player.
Nicole - No shoes/socks on, feet in the muddy water to save a stroke since Captain Soscia convinced me to hit it. Things we do for team play! 👊
Team Play 2023
The gap has grown!
The team trend continued on 4/10 as our 8 players had an outstanding day of golf taking 23 ½ points in the match. With three matches to go, we have a 16 point lead on the next contender in overall points. The weather was ideal for scoring. Collectively the team had 43 pars along with several clutch putts to overtake a tough Boulder City team. The roster for this match included Gabriele, Margie, Kim, Linda, Christine, Kathy, Donna, Nancy.
Our next match is April 24 against Canyon Gate at Palm Valley. We anticipate a fun competitive match and hope that our winning trend continues.
