2017 TCCC Alternate Shot Tournament #1
On March 31, the TCCC held an Alternate Shot Tournament under the lights with forty players participating.  The team of Wray Martin, Patty Martin, Gloria Bensch and Alan Bensch (team 10) defeated Barb Powell, Frank Powell, Skip Hapner and Sue Hapner  (team 1) by a score of 5 to 2. Team 1 scored the first two wickets to go ahead 2 – 0.  The third wicket went to team 10.  On the 4th wicket team 1 had a ball right in front of the wicket when Wray Martin completed a long jump shot to make the score 2 – 2.  It was all team 10 after that wicket.  Congratulations to team 10 and 2nd place team 1.

I would like to thank Terry Hunt for setting up the tournament and Terry, George Fiegel and Alan Bensch for help in setting up the wickets.  Thanks also to Wray Martin and Mike Kost for running the new time clock, George Fiegel for making the trophies and finally thanks to Michele McGuire and her helpers for the wine and snacks.  These volunteers are what makes our club great.

Coastal Croquet Clubs Spring Tournament

On April 18 and 19, 2017, the Coastal Croquet Clubs (CCC) held their Spring Golf Croquet Tournament at the Sun City- Bluffton courts near Hilton Head, S.C.   Ten members of the Tega Cay Croquet Club participated along with thirty  members of the CCC. 


The first day was divided into five blocks with eight players in a block.  Each player played four games with a different partner against different opponents each game.


On the second day, based on the results of the first day, each player was paired with the same partner for all game that day.  Everyone played three games in the morning and sixteen teams were then placed in brackets for a single elimination playoff in the afternoon.  After two rounds, the four teams to make the semifinals were Art Thomasson & Robin Forbes-Jones vs. George Fiegel & Randy Taylor (the combined ages of this team was 163) and Mike Farnham & Carolyn MacMullin vs. Frank Powell & Heather Forbes-Jones.  This latter match was one of the hardest fought games of the day.  Mike & Carolyn were down 6-4   Mike did a Chernobyl at wicket #11 towards the water, was able to lay up nice to wicket #12 and made the scoring shot on his next turn to tie the game at 6 to 6.  Mike & Carolyn were able to make  wicket #13 after a short bit of jockeying around it to win 7 to 6.  


In the final match, Mike Farnham & Carolyn MacMullin defeated Art Thomasson & Robin Forbes-Jones by a score of     7 to 2 to win the championship .
