For six days, Poppy Hills Golf Course hosted its own production. Among the sights and sounds: Taiko players welcomed the field of 156 players from across the globe. Medalist Lucy Li of Redwood Shores opened with fireworks, shooting a championship record-tying and women's course record 9-under 62 in the first round. A fog descended that isolated the course from the rest of the world, but there was still a clearly visible sea of orange. Course architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. popped by to watch his canvas in its glory. There was time for S'mores. And finally, a then-16-year-old Concord resident Yealimi Noh did her best impression of Greek marathon legend Pheidippides, defeating 13-year-old Floridian Alexa Pano, 4 and 3, over one grueling day that saw both the semifinals and 36-hole finale held. The NCGA expresses its gratitude to all of those who volunteered for the U.S. Girls' Championship. Without you, it doesn't happen!
