The tournament format was two best balls from the four-person teams.


This is the second straight state quad title for the team of Ronda Henderson, Sherry Jackson, Renee Rocco and Brenda Knott, representing Southern Nevada.

They won the 2023 title by 14 strokes when the event was held at Toiyabe Golf Club in Washoe Valley, NV.

They won by six strokes this year.

Consistency was the key for the group in 2024 as they put 10 birdies on the scorecard compared to having to count just six bogeys over the two days.

“We hit the ball better today than yesterday,” said Henderson, who led the South winners with five birdies over the two days. “We didn’t make as many putts today. But, on the bright side, we didn’t have as many panic holes today so it was a little less stressful although the scores were the same.”

Henderson said the team’s overall play was solid.

“We hit a lot of fairways and greens,” she said. “On most of the holes, we had three or four looks at birdie although some of the putts were a lot longer than others.”

In the end, the South team had a six-shot lead heading into the final day and just wanted to play steady golf.

“We knew with a six-shot lead our job was not to do anything stupid,” Henderson said. “We had one hole that was pretty bad but we all have enough experience that it didn’t phase us. We just said, ‘OK, we made a bogey, let’s turn it around’ and we did just that.”

Henderson added it was great to see the North well represented.

“It’s always nice to see the ladies from the North come down here,” Henderson said. “We knew that there were a lot of talented teams and we just wanted to go out and play well and see where we wound up.”

Debbie Jo Severin, Jennifer Spade, Irene Reznick and El-Marie Gill, representing The Club at Arrowcreek in Northern Nevada, gave new meaning to the term teamwork as each player recorded at least one net eagle during the tournament.

The team won the title by six strokes.

“It was just amazing teamwork,” said Spade, team spokesperson. “We all had our bright spots and we just ham-and-egged it over the two days.”

Spade said the team came into the tournament with no expectations.

“We absolutely came down here to have fun,” she said. “We’re a new team together. We just knew we were going to go out and have fun. We all won a little money gambling and then ended up winning the Net title. How crazy is that?”

She said she was surprised the team led after the first day and they took things seriously heading into Day 2…well, maybe not.

“(Monday night) we had a great dinner and then played blackjack and had drinks,” she said with a laugh. “We sent pictures to the team in second place, our fellow friends from Arrowcreek, taunting them a little and having a good time with it.”

Once back on the course for the final round, the goal was simple: Focus.

“We just tried to play each shot and work together to help each other on the green,” she said.

The key stretch for the team came in the first round.

“Debbie Jo and I each had a birdie (net eagle for both) on the same hole and then Debbie Jo had a birdie on the next hole (another net eagle),” Spade said. “It was back-to-back birdies for her….it was incredible. We were just yelling and screaming.”
