Big Canoe was the chosen golf course for the Georgia State Golf Association’s (GSGA) Top 60 Women’s Classic. The tournament drew top women from across Georgia for two days of competition, July 29 and 30.

The winner, Kate Owens of Suwanee, finished two shots over par, (75, 71) beating Sarah Gallagher in a playoff. Two Big Canoe golfers, Ellen MacArthur and Juliana Sproles also played in the talented field of competitors.

Big Canoe’s Head Golf Professional, B.J. McCranie said, “We are honored to have been chosen to host the 2019 GSGA Top 60 Women's Classic. Big Canoe's challenging layout and picturesque views are the perfect combination for such a prestigious event. The best women in the state enjoyed all that Big Canoe has to offer and we look forward to hosting more GSGA events in the future.”

Belinda Marsh, president of the GSGA, thanked the talented golf and grounds staff at Big Canoe, as well as the Women's Golf Association for the many volunteers. Final results of the two-day event are posted on www.gsga.org.
