September 12, 2012. Winners all — that was the 28 girls from the 2012 MWGA-LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Program who participated in the 3rd annual Michigan Women’s Golf Association 9-Hole Junior-Adult Scramble at Idyl Wyld Golf Course in Livonia on Saturday, September 8. As an official event of the U.S. Navy Bicentennial Celebration of the War of 1812, in addition to MWGA members, several members of the Navy and the U. S. Coast Guard were in attendance, including the Commander of the U.S. Coast Guard, Lisa Ragon. Another guest of honor at the morning scramble was First Lady of Detroit, Mrs. Yvette Bing.

 

At the lunch buffet following golf, Mrs. Bing and Commander Ragon encouraged the girls in the golf program to pursue their dreams. Several of the Navy and Coast Guard personnel as well as two students from Grosse Pointe South HS golf team shared their personal stories of the path they followed to get where they are today. The high school girls, Lily Pendy and Tenley Shield, are on the state champion school golf team.
