News from Lady 18ers

January 31, 2018, looking toward 7th green

Dana Marrs

Our 2018-2019 golf season is active now. You can find us on the course every Tuesday morning enjoying the beautiful fairways and greens produced by fall overseeding and remarkable summer care. We play shotgun starts in foursomes arranged by our daily play organizer. The foursomes are built with handicaps in mind; our handicaps range from 8 to 34. We golf with different friends each week, and every group can be competitive in the game for the week. Best of all, we have room for more golfers. If you think you might like to join us, contact Melissa Craig at 480-656-4362.

Just past in November, we enjoyed a mixed play day with the Lady Niners and hosted a luncheon after.

Looking ahead, we are saving the date of December 15 for the GolfTennis Holiday Celebration in the ballroom.

The news in the golf world is the new rules for 2019. Keep an eye out for a Rules Clinic on December 6 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the clubhouse. We hope to invite everyone who tees it up at SunBird to come and begin to become acquainted with new rules for 2019. You will find that the changes are designed to simplify some rules, increase speed of play and make golf more enjoyable. Who doesn’t want that?
