Vermont Wins Tri-States

VSWGA President Elizabeth Walker

receives Tri-State trophy from

the New Hampshire president

A very determined Vermont team traveled to the beautiful Maine coast and took the annual Tri-State competition by storm over Maine and New Hampshire.  Vermont got off to a great start in the alternate shot format on the first day of competition building a 20 point lead over the host Maine team.  But, even a 20 point lead was not necessarily enough with 2/3 of the available points still up for grabs on the second day of play which features individual matches.  Vermont, however, came out just as strong on the second day and increased the margin over Maine to 36.5 points.  The final point totals were:  Vermont - 161.5, Maine -  125.0, and New Hampshire - 118.5.


The tournament was held June 16 & 17 at Boothbay Country Club in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, one of Maine's most  popular and scenic tourists spots.  The Vermont players apparently thrive on lobster, because the lobster population is seriously depleted after our invasion.


In the alternate shot competition where both players drive on each hole, one ball is selected, and players alternate shots in to the hole, several Vermont duos took 5 - 6 points (6 points is the maximum):

Paquet/Proia-Thompson
