  • Kickoff Highlights from our President, Jeri Phillips

    Connie Schott, Peggy Johnson, Jan Ray, and Julie Piland

    What a great Kickoff Event at Texas Rangers Golf Club on March 4. There were 64 registrations and 32 of those ladies played golf after the event and enjoyed the beautiful weather. We honored our Founders and were so happy that Peggy Johnson, Connie Pollock, Jan Ray, and Julie Piland were willing to be interviewed about the beginnings of our awesome Fort Worth Chapter. The standing ovation they received as they exited the stage was especially heartwarming. 

    All the Chapter Board and Leadership members shared what is coming in 2023 for our members. Watch the website, monthly newsletter, and the weekly updates to keep up with all the activities PLANNED FOR YOU!

    A successful Kickoff Event helps us raise money so that we can benefit and plan some awesome events for our members. There were plenty of opportunities to contribute to our Chapter’s fundraising efforts:
       * Silent Auction of 27 amazing items
       * 10 Raffle items of a large variety of choices
       * 50/50 Pony Up Raffle with 50% of the funds benefitting the LPGA Amateurs Foundation  and 50% of the funds awarded to lucky
           winner Sue Steffen. There were also 2 consolation prizes of cowgirl hats filled with lottery scratch-off tickets won by Patte Lee
           and Kelli Kidd. 

       * M&M Guess Jar filled with teal and white M&Ms. Natasha Hawes guessed within 30 of the total and won a $25 Texas Rangers Golf
        gift card and the jar of M&Ms. 

    National Sponsor Birdie Balou was there with Sheilagh Wilson offering her merchandise for shopping and purchase. We also offered sales of Chapter Logo Merchandise for the convenience of our attendees. They placed orders at the Kickoff, we will receive all those orders, and then deliver those orders.   This offering saved our attendees shipping costs and provided easy shopping. 

    The Southern Brunch Buffet was delicious and Sweet Lucy’s fried pies were a yummy dessert. 

    Thanks so very much to all the volunteers who helped the event run smoothly with their time and attention. And a great big thanks to the Kickoff Committee for all their planning the last 2 months. These ladies - Natasha Hawes, Lynda Duvall, Debbie Schroder, Sofia Maese, Maribeth Fletcher, and Jeri Phillips - deserve a round of applause!

  • Tribute to Kathy Whitworth

    Kathy Whitworth, incredible person, and golfer, who passed away on Christmas eve.  For those of us that have met her, played in her tournament, worked with her as part of the VOA LPGA tournament, and other events; it was an honor and a privilege to be her friend.  This article by Art Stricklin as he talked of Kathy with Cathy Harbin, PGA Master Professional & LPGA Golf Professional, is the essence of Kathy.

    As you think of Kathy, what was the 1st time that you met her?
    For me, Diana Gats, it was in Canton, OH in 2003; when she was at my home and later met with longtime LPGA friend, Rene Powell.
