The mixed couples 36-hole event brought many golfers from the northern part of California to this course on the Nipomo mesa, a few miles south of Arroyo Grande.

The PWGA has 1600 members. It includes golf courses from San Luis Obispo County to Oregon state line.

It was a very successful tournament and was the first of its kind held here, according to a spokesman for the Black Lake club.

The event was presided over by the officers of the Pacific Women's Golf Association, Mrs. Eve Maxey of San Jose, president; and tournament chairmen Mrs. Yvonne Lapham of Walnut Creek, Mrs. Fred Williams of South San Francisco, Mrs. Robert Luke of Campbell, and Mrs. S. J. Anink of Alameda.

Four couples from Black Lake Golf Club were among the winners. They were Beverly and Wendell Crist of Santa Maria, and Vivian and Cliff Clifton of Nipomo.

Flight winners were as follows: first flight, Mrs. and Mrs. R. D. Williams of La Fayette, 288; second flight, Mr. and Mrs. Ed LaBare of San Jose, 289; third and fourth flights, tie between Mr. and Mrs. Zach Bogert of LaFayette and Mr. and Mrs. Tom Triol of Paso Robles, 291; fifth flight, Mr. and Mrs. Dick Brunnel of Concord, 298; and Mr. and Mrs. Wendell Crist of Santa Maria, 282.

Low net winners were Mr. and Mrs. W. Dale Williams of Concord.
