Ontario Retains Ada Mackenzie Matches Title
VICTOR, NEW YORK – The Ontario Senior Women’s Ada Mackenzie Matches Team retained their title on May 16 with an 11.5 to 8.5 win over their rivals from the New York State Golf Association. The matches are an annual two-day event and were hosted this year at the Ravenwood Golf Club in Victor, New York.
Ontario’s championship team consisted of: Marion Reid, Chris Critelli, Judith Kyrinis, Mary Ann Hayward, Allyson Harrison, Nannette Cuddy, Diane Dolan, Theresa deLuis, Ivy Steinberg and Cheryll Damphouse.
The Ada Mackenzie Matches have been conducted since 1960 and are an annual team event with Upper New York State. The format for the competition consists of two match-play rounds. The first day consists of Chapman-format team matches. Chapman format is where both players drive, then hit each other’s tee shot for the second shot, before the best ball is selected and players play alternately on the selected ball for the remainder of the hole. The second day features Better-Ball matches.
Congratulations to the team and thanks to the New York State Golf Association and Ravenwood Golf Club for hosting this year’s Matches.
