WALLACE — Flapper dresses and gangster costumes were all the rage at the annual River Landing Golf Association Ladies Invitational held at River Landing on Wednesday, Sept. 29.

Donning their favorite 20’s prohibition era attire, golfers from 44 different golf clubs from four states brought their best game to the Roaring ‘Twen-Tees’ tournament.

The day kicked off with a breakfast at the Clubhouse followed by a show performed by the River Landing Golf Shop staff.

“Sticking to the 20’s prohibition theme, Larry George and Marshall Stott played criminals charged with making and distributing alcohol served by Sabrina Lewis. Danny Barnett and Paul Espag (played) the cops chasing them down,” said Morgan Jones from Murphy Family Ventures, in a social media post.

“Bill Nance played the firefighter putting out the fire that the criminals caused in an attempt to destroy the evidence.”

Lewis credited the staff for their hard work putting on a great show and thanked the RLGALS for a successful tournament.

“Thursday, Sept. 30 marked the official tournament with prizes going to the Best Interpretation of Theme Cart of Wilmington Municipal River Landing Golf Association, Best Interpretation of 1920’s Theme costumes of River Landing,” said Jennifer Ciuccoli, River Landing Golf Association Invitational chair in a press release.

Participants had the chance to win door prize baskets and gifts, “including a Getaway for four at River Landing,” said Ciuccoli.

“Players left on a high, many commenting they can’t wait for next year,” she added.
