Thank you to the Bend Golf Club staff for dealing with the ups and downs of COVID-19 restrictions! Your patience has been admirable.
The emergence of the new bunkers and tees on number 10 is exciting. And the number 11 green is great, too. Scott Moffenbeier, thanks to you and your team.
If you ‘ve been playing during our Wednesday afternoon block of tee times, let me know how it’s going. We can modify it if necessary.
Leslie Satterfield, working with Monte Hanson, has organized the 55th Ladies Invitational under difficult circumstances. The lack of a current email list meant sending flyers to many clubs, OWGA leaders and others to get the information out. Good work. Looks like the tournament, planned for June 14, 15 and 16 is reaching Leslie’s goals for attendance. Members can still sign up!
Please note the colorful binder on the table in the ladies’ locker room; it has pages for signing up to help before and during the tournament. We can always use more help, including donations for raffle baskets. Thanks to Barb Gahr for contacting other clubs to prepare a list of women in golf association leadership positions. That list will be helpful next year!
LGA members, are you using the great information you are getting on Mondays? It even has pictures of how a complete scorecard should look for our Wednesday games. Debbi Smith prepares this for Kandy Lamson to send. Let me know if you are NOT receiving it. Preparing my scorecard before I go to the course on Wednesday makes me more efficient.
Coming up on July 14: Guest Day. This one-day tournament allows you to invite a friend for one day of golf and lunch. Ask a friend and watch for sign-ups. Judy Boulet, Anita Brown, and Nancy Hakala are organizing it, so you know it will be a great event. This is a good opportunity for new members to get involved. Your help will be appreciated, and if you do not have a guest in mind, we can help you find one. And speaking of help (!!) it is not too early to begin organizing our annual Pine Cone Classic (2-day member/guest) Tournament. It is coming in September. Email me if you wish to join a committee to plan it.
