It is with a heavy heart that we share sad news, the passing of Gale Gates. Gale served on the board for many years. She will be remembered as a great friend, loving wife & mother, and a fabulous golfer. Mass Live Obituary
Congratulations to this year's winner, Ela Soja!
Thank you to our Chapter President, Linda, for hosting a lovely Holiday Brunch. It was wonderful to reconnect after our local golf season had ended, and a fun way to cap off 2021. We look forward to more gatherings in the new year!
Etiquette review from our Kick-Off night at Chicopee:
Grasping all of the do's and don'ts of golf takes time.
This list is a great start to get you feeling comfortable about the general golf rules on any given course.
Play at a reasonable pace.
Repair ball marks, replace divots, rake bunkers.
Have the player who is farthest from the pin hit first.
Let the winner of the previous hole tee off first at the next tee...
...unless your group has agreed to play "ready golf" in which case whoever is ready can tee off.
Respect the rules and regulations of the course that you are playing.
Move or talk while someone in your group is hitting the ball (or about to hit).
Ask your opponent what club she hit.
Walk across the line of another player's putt on the green.
Hit your shot until the group in front of you is well out of range.
Ever play when lightning is in the area.
Hold up other players.
