15th LPN Solheim Cup Results

The team led by Captain Jody Babcock defeated Captain Carole Peterson's team Sunday in the 15th annual LPN Solheim. Twenty-four two-gal teams participated in this year's event. The competition included six holes of better ball and six holes of alternate shot, with the final six holes being best shot. "Battle By Boulder Beach" was the theme chosen by the team captains, a nod to past military service by them and their husbands. At the end of the awards banquet, the 2015 Solheim captains were announced. They are Gayle Shackelford and Tracy Welberg.
