It was a nice day on Monday, July 19, for the Redwood Falls women’s team as they claimed the Silver Cup at 69th Annual Gold/Silver Cup Tournament held this year at the Redwood Falls Golf Club.

The long running event — which features teams from Marshall, Redwood Falls, Tyler, Granite Falls, Hendricks and Madison — has a winner for the low net group score (Silver Cup) and the low gross group score (Gold Cup).

This year, the eight ladies representing Redwood Falls fired a 428 net score to edge Hendricks (432) by four shots and Marshall (438) and Tyler (438) by 10 a piece.

The Redwood Falls Silver Cup winning team included, from left: Bailey Klause, Sarah Koster, Tamara Brown, Donna Flynn, Deb Suedbeck, Kathy Mainer, Linda Sommers and Carmen Prodoehl.

Sarah Koster had a strong outing to lead the way for Redwood Falls with her score of 77, finishing second just one shot back of medalist Megan Nickel of Marshall (76).

Teammate Bailey Klause was three shots off of the medalist number with a 79 to finish third and veteran Deb Suedbeck tied for fourth with Kari Ehlers and Nancy Blanchard of Marshall with her round of 82.

Bailey Klause hits her chip shot into the par-5 ninth hole Monday morning.

Tamara Brown and Donna Flynn both fired rounds of 92, Linda Sommers and Carmen Prodoehl added 103s and Kathy Mainer finished with a 106.

Redwood would finish in second place in the Gold Cup with a 525 total, finishing behind Marshall (505) and ahead of third place Tyler (541).

The Redwood Falls Ladies Invitational is next up in early August.
