2014 Fast Trackers Celebrate -- Jul 21

This past Monday, 24 members and guests enjoyed the Fast Tracker 9-Hole Scramble at Woodcreek Golf Club.  This tournament was the final "lesson" of the 10-lesson series for the 13 Fast Tracker participants.  Several of the 11 volunteer mentors were on board to lead the teams and help them with course management. 

 

The competition was fierce, as six teams fought for the first place prize of a 9-Hole round of golf at Woodcreek.  Even the last place team got a prize: home-grown grapes that were not sour and tomatoes that were not rotten!   

 

Congratulations to the first place winners:

  • Krista Wilder, Team leader
  • Sunny Mills, Honorary Fast Tracker
  • Connie Clark, Fast Tracker and Brand New Member
  • Paula Forman, Brand New Member

After playing, everyone gathered at the 19th hole for food and festivities. Fast Track Leader Clare Payne presented each of the eight Fast Trackers in attendance with a certificate and a gift that one just cannot have enough of - water balls!

 

In a surprise move, the class led by Nancy Lyons and Mary Lou Azevedo actually left Clare speechless.  You might see a little tear in Clare's eye as Nancy gives her a gift certificate and card signed by all the 2014 Fast Trackers.  Mary Lou presented each volunteer mentor and Laura Espinoza (Clare's volunteer assistant) with a sleeve of balls.  So what is a graduation party without cake?  Yummy chocolate cake for all - what a way to end the day!

 

Congratulations Fast Trackers!  A special thank you to Clare, Laura and the mentors for your time, expertise and dedication!

Darkhorse Play Day Results -- Jul 19

It was a Train Wreck!  Yes, 15 players tried not to have one but Tyra Jarvis was the one who figured out how to prevent a wreck by ending up with 27 points.  For her efforts, she was the recipient of a round of golf at Darkhorse.  

 

Winning the scramble competition with a score of 77 was the team of Deanna Frandsen, Carol Wilkenng, Fern Lukka, and Shelley Van Drimmelen.    


But the most fun was watching these cute little critters play "hide and seek".

Teal Bend Women's Golf Month

 

Our Home Course Pulls Out the Stops!

 

On Friday, June 27th Sacramento EWGA members attended a Teal Bend's Women's Golf Month event.  Golf Pro, Geoff Podgorny, gave a free "Full Swing Clinic" filled with personalized swing advice.  Member Del Sayles-Owen says "he reinforced for me that the key to hitting your target is to have one! Thank you Geoff for the great driving range pointers and demonstrations."

 

Next ladies found themselves in golf fashion heaven at the GG Blue Trunk show.  At 50% off - no one went home empty handed! 

 

   

 

Farewell ...  Come Back Soon martha

We Will Miss You, Martha!!!

 

This week's Monday Night Casual Golf was especially festive.  After golf, a group us gathered for dinner at Timbers Restaurant to honor and say good bye to our very own Martha Messineo.  Our Chapter has been so fortunate to have this creative, fun, skilled and committed lady to serve as our webmaster.  Martha is moving to San Luis Obispo (lucky gal) and hopefully she will come back to golf with us occasionally.  Our thanks to Martha for all she has done to help make the Sacramento Chapter a warm and welcoming place!

PUtting Clinic -- Jun 23

We had seven ladies participate in the class with amazing results.  They learned proper alignment and how to control for both distance and speed.  They even know how and when the speed of greens is measured... just ask them about the Stimpmeter.  Congratulations to Connie Clark, the winner of the surprise closest to the pin contest who received a one hour lesson with our esteemed instructor, Don Pottle! 

 

This was the final clinic of the Haggin Oaks Short Game Series and it was unanimous that we should do it again next year!  A big thank you to volunteer Nancy Lyons who helped in the coordination of this event. 

 

 

  

Yocha Dehe Fun, Fun, Fun -- Jun 22

You Should Have Been There On June 22

 

We had 29 ladies and one lone gentleman enjoying another fabulous golf event.  Yocha Dehe is one of the premier golf courses in the area, and they treat you so well.  The best part is after you turn in your golf cart, there is a cold, wet towel waiting for you.  Heaven after a hot day.

 

The game we played was called David & Goliath.  You took the gross scores on the five longest holes and added them to the scores on the four shortest holes to come up with a nine-hole score.  You then subtracted half of your handicap for your adjusted score.  It was a close race with three people tied for second at 32:  Kathleen McKilligan, Vicki Philpott, and Cindy Merral, but Kayleen Kott came in with an amazing score of 28.  She won a round of golf for two generously donated by Yocha DeHe.  Funniest moment was how fast Theresa Stamey jumped up to stand next to Kayleen when she found out it was a round for two!!
