SunBird Ladies 18ers return

Pat Arnold’s hole-in-one

Pat Arnold’s hole-in-one

Tammy Bachofner

It’s October already! You all know what that means, right? SunBird Ladies Golf season is about to begin! Our official start is in November, but I thought everyone would like to get some dates on their calendars.

We had a fun, HOT summer! I would like to fill you in on the highlights of the golf course; however, I must admit, I have been gone most of the summer and have not been golfing. I know – my bad.

I do know that Pat Arnold decided to get the season started early with a hole-in-one on hole 13 on August 22! Gail Holland watched as Pat used her 9 iron to execute a perfect shot; however, they were both so excited that they forgot to take the photo until they arrived at hole 14! Congratulations, Pat! This is Pat’s third hole-in-one. I hear she will be giving lessons soon, so stay tuned.

Our first official play day and lunch meeting will be Tuesday, November 7. This first lunch and meeting will be held in the Horizon Room immediately following our game. Please note: Beginning in December, our lunch and meetings will both be held in the ballroom.

Please be sure to sign up for both golf and lunch a week ahead of time so we have a proper lunch count. If you will not be here in time for sign-up but plan on being here in time to play on November 7, just let me know, and I will sign you up for the game.

Friendly reminder about our first play day in November: We check in at the golf shop and in the hallway by the library. You will need money for your golf, lunch (if you signed up), the day’s game, hole-in-one fund and dues.

Dues for the SunBird Ladies Golf Club and the AWGA will be due no later than mid-December, as stated in our constitution. So please be prepared to pay your dues on our first play day in November, if at all possible.

If you are new and would like to join the SunBird Ladies 18ers, you can contact me, Cheryl Moore, or just fill out the form at the pro shop and sign up on our sheet located in the hallway of the pro shop.

I know it’s only October, but I want to give you a heads up for planning purposes for December. Our Christmas Dinner Dance will be held on December 2, and our Ladies Net Shoot-Out will be on December 10. Please mark your calendars and plan on attending both of these fun events!
