Teeing off it’s 85th year on Saturday was the Nemadji Women’s Club Championship at the Nemadji Golf Course.

Rainy weather held off long enough for a brand new champion to be crowned, in Superior’s own Patty Lier.

"I didn’t come in thinking a lot about it," said Lier, making her first tournament appearance in years. "The two I golfed against are very good golfers, and so it was fun to play with them. It just came down to a few less mistakes for me."

Lier battled a tough field to claim the title.

She edged out three time champion Amy Patenaude, who came in second, and 11 time champion Pat Kelly, who finished third.

Six flights followed the championship flight to cap off the full day tournament.
