Great To Have Golf! While we'll continue with Weekend Play while the  weather permits, our 2020 season officially ended with our Oct 3 outing at Meriwether National. We're thankful to have been able to play as much as we did in this year that altered lives--first because of the pandemic, and in September the wildfires and smoke.

Through it all, we've had each other--a welcoming community of women who love to golf and enjoy the camaraderie it infuses. Planning for 2021 is already underway, including activities for the off-season to keep us engaged. And we have some great membership deals in the pipeline. We hope you'll join us!

 
 
 Election Results Election Results. We're pleased to announce the election of Judith Sachs to a one year-term as President; Linda Dennis to a two-year term as Golf Events Director; Julianne Matzell to a two-year term as Membership Director; and Gale Wallmark to a two-year term as Marketing Director.

As of Nov 1, they join John Chan (Finance Director) and Cheryl McGinnis (Golf Programs Director), who are continuing two-year terms.

Our gratitude to each of these members--and to Susan Weiner, our president for the past two years--for their willingness to take on important roles in our Chapter's governance. 
 
 Collage3  Must-Have Apps. If you don't already have them on your phone, USGA's Rules of Golf app, along with your handicap provider's app--GHIN or GolfNet--should be on your phone this season. Find them in the App Store.
