As I write this article, SunBird Lady 18ers are getting ready for the club championship which will be played on March 10 and 17.
We just completed the Ladies Gross Shootout. First place: Karen Gilmore, second place: Jackie Huyghebaert, third place: Cindy Vig. The tip most often shared by these shootout winners was “play to survive.” Confident, safe, and solid play was rewarded.
We also played the SunBird Cup which is our premier net play tournament. First place: Kaye Wulfekuhler, second place: Elaine Friesen, third place: Janet Farrell.
This is the time of year that we begin to make plans for next year. Officers will be elected. A crew of volunteers will be enlisted to take on numerous tasks. A master schedule for next October through April will be created for all our weekly play, luncheons, meetings, and tournaments. Dates will be reserved with the clubhouse and coordinated with other groups.
We look forward to golfing these last warm, wonderful months. We also are looking forward to including more women golfers next fall.
April 7: Golf, lunch, and general meeting. End of Season Awards
April 14, 21, and 28: Daily play
Then, finally, when the seasonal visitors leave for the summer “back home,” informal golf on Tuesdays continues by those intrepid year-rounders who play all summer in early morning.
