On Thursday, September 28th, thirty-two ladies took to the Norman course to play for the 2017 BLGA Solheim Cup Title. Contested by two teams of sixteen women, representing Europe and the United States, this year’s competition was certainly fiercer than ever before – with just a single point determining the 2017 Solheim Cup Winners! Team USA came out on top with a score of 108 ½ to Team Europe’s 107 ½ total points.
Barefoot Resort & Golf would like to congratulate all of those who participated in the 2017 BLGA Solheim Cup, especially the following winners:

Barefoot Resort & Golf Members wined down the summer with Girls Night Out: Wine & Design and Wine & Cheese Wednesday. Not a pour decision was made by attending these two late summer events as they were certainly a grape time.

With one of the largest turnouts in tournament history of 48 teams (96 individuals), the 2017 Member-Guest got off to a perfect start on September 1st with the Love Course hosting the first round of competition. The Member-Guest format was comparable to last year with two-person teams competing in five nine-hole matches with an alternate shot shoot-out on the final afternoon to determine the overall champions. The overall winners for the 2017 Member Guest tournament were Tom McDowell and Steve Weeks, two familiar faces as they previously won the title in 2015. Coming in second place, by one point, were George Mullany and Bryan Bark followed by Dave Janicki and Larry Ubaldini for third place. Flight winners included Tom Bauder and Stan Lepkowski – Berger; Tim Larkin and Xavier Hartsoe – Koepka; Tony Rossi and Bill Brauer – Rahm; Dave Janicki and Larry Ubaldini – Fowler; Billy White and Larry Wells – Johnson; Tom McDowell and Steve Weeks – Speith; Ed Dorward and Jim Fronzoni – Thomas; George Mullany and Bryan Bark – Matsuyama. Following the banquet on the final day of the tournament, competition prizes along with raffle prizes were handed out to the lucky winners. With all of the positive feedback from the participants in this year’s Member-Guest Tournament, Barefoot Resort and Golf would like to thank all of the competitors and look forward to next year’s event.
It was all hush hush for the August 25th Member Social Event. Barefoot Members who knew the password were invited to party, prohibition style, at the Barefoot Speakeasy. The swanky bootleg party was a roaring good time – filled with flappers, fizzy drinks and phenomenal food.
