Defending champion Marianne Weber braved not only the competition but also the elements in winning the Pompano Beach Women’s Golf Association’s Club Championship recently.

Weber shot a three-day total of 257 to win the Pompano Beach Women’s Golf Association’s Club Championship by four shots over rival Mimi Denoma. It marked the second straight title for Weber in winning over Denoma, who won the club title in 2017.

“We had three days of horrible weather,” said tournament chair Jan Ruck. “Tuesday was 25-30 mph winds, Thursday was rain on last 6 holes, with hail and thunder on the last hole, and, on Friday, it was 60 degrees cold to us. It was tough conditions.”

Janet Stuart shot a 281 to take the second Flight Low Net title, while Deb Ladig was runner-up with a 289.
