When you’re the only foursome of ladies surrounded by nothing but 18 holes teeming with testosterone, you’re bound to command a little bit of attention.

“They should have a prize for just girls, because we did really well!” said Taiwen Chen, who, along with Carol Neyland, Janet Darcangelo and Julie Smith, rounded out the female demographic at the St. Clair Country Club on Monday for the annual YMCA Golf Tournament.

Content with their office for the day, a total of 31 foursomes took to the green, including tourney director Dan Grealish, Lewis Gardner, Gregory Peaslee, Bill Spencer, Grant Mason, Mike Malone, David Bluemling and Mark Fleisner. Afterward, cocktails back in the club with the Godfather, aka Larry Spencer, who started the tournament 26 years ago. Dinner and a silent auction capped things off, and in the end, more than $100K was raised for the YMCA’s programs and initiatives.

“Who really benefits is our urban Y’s. We’re playing for a purpose,” said prez Rig Riggins.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
