Winter Messages from Women’s and Men’s Leagues

As the winter season continues to drag on, we wanted to bring you a pair of updates from the Presidents of our 18-Hole Leagues.

First, representing the Women’s League, Shannon Blegen…

2019 turned out to be a fantastic year for our Wednesday Women’s 18-hole golf league. We added 14 new members, and we enjoyed a wonderful Guest Day ending our 18 holes on the patio for a BBQ. Plus, fun games throughout the season. In 2019, the league had a total of 41 Birdies, and the top Birdie girl (with 8 total) was Cindy Ross.

Our Club Champion this year was Karen Giese. Karen had a hole in one on the last day of the championship. Congrats Karen!!

2019 Match play result: (champion/consolation)
1st flight Karen Giese/Cindy Ross, 2nd Pat Patko/Shannon Blegen, 3rd Nancy Rubinstein/Claudia Methven, 4th Betz Lastch/Deb Degrio, 5th Karen Scheldroup/Lori DeJoode

We are looking forward to 2020, and are hard at work planning our Ladies Invitational, set for June 17th, as well as another fun guest day at the end of July. League will start May 20th 2020, so mark your Calendars.

I would like to thank you all for a wonderful season, and I would also like to encourage all local ladies that would like to join a fun flexible league to consider joining us on Wednesday mornings. If you need additional information please contact the Pro Shop.

See you all when the snow melts,
Shannon Blegen
