If you look up the risk of playing golf in our present Pandemic, you will see golf rated as quite a low risk activity. Although it’s difficult for 23 women to not chat closely or outright hug each other, we are very happy to report that our golf club is adhering to the guidelines for safe Pandemic golfing. We are staying 6 feet apart and wearing masks into the pro shop while the pros are greeting us behind a Plexiglas shield. We are each in separate carts (just like the men’s club have always golfed) and we are feeling safe and well taken care of by our golf course.

This week’s competition was Mystery Nine where our pro shop draws 9 random holes after we tee off and we take the gross score of these holes less ½ of our handicap.

The winners were:

  • Division 1: First place, Jaclyn Starr-Evans, 36. Second place was a tie between Linda Reister and Candace Farnsworth, 36.5.
  • Division 2: First place, Julie Allison, 38. Second place, Maggie Stalcup, 39.
  • Division 3: First place, Nancy Parker, 35.5. Second place, Jane Storms, 39.
  • Jacklyn Starr-Evans had a spectacular chip-in/birdie on hole 12 and Jane Storms had a chip-in on hole 2.

Next week the competition will be Medal Play (low gross and net of field, low net by division).

Tee time is 8:00 am; please check in by 7:30 am and remember to wear your mask into the club house in consideration of others.
