  • Combs wins 15th Burley Belle...


    The 43rd annual Burley Belles Invitational Tournament was won for the 15th time Friday by Anne Combs of Lexington.
    Combs who plays out of the Spring Valley Golf Club in Lexington led by three strokes over Laurie Goodlett of the Tates Creek Golf Club after Thursday’s opening round and stretched the lead to the final five strokes win Friday.  Goodlett was the second place gross finisher while Donna McNeil of Frankfort was first low net and Kelly Kendall of Cynthiana was second low net.
