End of year party - Nov 6

Was it fun or what?  Year End a Success!

It was a wonderful evening.  Yes, there was food and drink, but the evening's awards were the highlight, with everyone there having something to celebrate.

We'll post the photos on our Website soon but one says it all and it's here.  

Kris Corbridge and Deana Frandsen


The Bonnie Stone Award for the most improved golfer during the past 12 months went to Deana Frandsen.  For those that don't know, Deana was once a 12 handicapper player, playing since she was a child. Then she had 5 strokes.  
She has worked SO hard to regain her game and this year proved that she could do it.

Turkey shoot - Nov 1

The Last Play Day of the Year...The Turkey Shoot!

The weather Gods were with us this past Saturday for our last event of the season.  Not a drop of rain fell on the 35 golfers who tackled Turkey Creek and the game of Cha-Cha-Cha.  


There were nice teams of four.  Y
ou took one person's best net ball on the par 5s, two on the par 4s and three on the par 3s.  One team had three people so we used a blind draw, and Sharon Blume was the lucky winner, literally as she was on the 2nd and 3rd place teams.


 

First place went to the team of Karen Biscaha, Maryellen Haddock, Betty Lou Beyer, and Jeri Paik with a score of 109.  They each received a round of golf at Turkey Creek donated by the course.

 

Second place went to the team of Denise Arend, Kristin Montgomery, Cindy Merrall, and the blind draw of Sharon Blume with a score of 111.

 

Third place went to the team of Sharon Blume, Karen Zamarripa, Patricia Ickes, and Fran Brolan who won in a card-off with a score of 116.


 

There was also closest to the pin contest on all the par 3s for a $5 buy in.  First place won $25, and second place won $15.  The winners were as follows:


 

Hole # 3:  Denise Gualco = 6'

                Laurie Hochmuth = 17'

 

Hole # 8:  Pam Katros = 12' 4"

                Denise Gualco = 17' 5"

 

Hole #11:  Maryellen Haddock = Hole in one!!!!  

                The celebration was heard all over the course!!

                Karen Biscaha = 3' 10"

 

Hole # 14:  Shelley Van Drimmelen = 3' 3"

                 Tillie Melton = 11' 8"

 

The gals presented me (Pam) a gift certificate from Turkey Creek for $200.  I was totally surprised and appreciate this thoughtful gift.  It's sad this is the end of our events, but looking forward to next year.  

 

You so deserve our appreciation, Pam!!!!

Golftec - OCT 22

On Wednesday October 22, 2014, we had 15 members come out for the GolfTEC Rocklin Open House.  There were three certified personal golf coaches who used cameras and computers to help us analyze nearly every aspect of our swings.  The GolfTEC crew really knew how to get our attention.  First, there was wine and wonderful appetizers!  Secondly, there were contests:  Long drive-measured by total distance minus distance away from center line and closest to the hole-must be on the green.  There was also a chipping challenge that tested distance control plus accuracy.

 

Each attendee received a personal analysis, including a discussion of goals, mental preparation, practice strategies and warm-up routines.   First we were given yoga stretching techniques by a guest Pilates instructor.  Once we were all warmed up we headed to one of three bays:  chipping, driving, and full-body tracking.  We learned about all the services GolfTEC provides and were offed a 10% discount on all game plans and a 20% discount for those who chose to purchase the ultra-package.

 

Most everyone came away with at list one tip or drill what would help improve their games.  Our thanks to GolfTEC Rocklin for hosting this free demonstration.  It was a great two hours of learning and socializing in a relaxed indoor setting.
