Sheriff plans no investigation of naked woman at golf tournament in Woodward

The Woodward County sheriff said he's not investigating the case of a naked woman who made an appearance last month during a charity golf tournament.

Riffel sent a letter to JCLA Enterprises on behalf of the Woodward Golf Oversight Committee last month, notifying the company that it would lose its lease if anything else inappropriate happened.

Golf course officials didn't know the woman was naked until nearly the end of the tournament, said Jonathan Hart, president of JCLA Enterprises. Hart was at the golf course during the tournament.

“I made the decision to just let the tournament end and let people go on with their day,” said Hart, who lives in Woodward and is a native of Edmond. “At that time, I didn't think it was necessary to cause a scene.”

Course officials are working to create a course policy agreement to provide to anyone hosting a tournament, said JCLA Vice President Chris Moya, who is from New Mexico.

The incident last month, though, wasn't their fault, Moya said.

“We don't claim responsibility,” he said. “She didn't come from the parking lot onto the course naked. It's like predicting lighting.”
