SWGA at Eastridge

I apologize for the delay in getting the results of the playday posted for everyone; however, I haven't had internet availiability since that day. 

We had a really good turnout with 49 ladies playing.  I also need to apologize for the misunderstanding of how to play Hole #10.  I had made arrangements when it was scheduled in March to have the rules printed out, but it just slipped my mind until I arrived on Tuesday, so we thought that announcing the rules would be adequate.  Apparently some ladies didn't hear how it would work.  I feel really bad about that.  You can bet that it won't happen again, not that it helps anything for this time.

Just so you'll know how it was SUPPOSED to work:  after hitting a ball into the ditch, whether it was your first, second, or ANY shot, you could walk around to the drop zone and take an extra penalty shot.  Once again, I sincerely regret the mix-up.  Please check out the right column for a list of winners and a small slideshow.

The next SWGA playday will be at Southern Trace on June 15.

The term "Caddie"

Ever wonder where the term "caddie" came from?  One of the most popular stories about the origin deals with a "lady" golfer.

When Mary (later Queen of Scots) went to France as a young girl (for education & survival), Louis, King of France, learned that she loved the Scottish game 'golf.' We are told that he had the first golf course outside of Scotland built for her enjoyment.

To make sure she was properly chaperoned (and guarded) while she played, Louis hired cadets from a military school to accompany her. Mary liked this a lot and when she returned to Scotland (not a very good idea in the long run), she took the practice with her.  In French, the word cadet is pronounced 'ca-day' and the Scots changed it to 'caddie.'

SSWGA Playday Palmetto CC

In addition to our SSWGA playday at Palmetto CC, it was also Marie McFarland's birthday.  Hope it was a good one for her!

We had forty ladies participating in today's event on a beautiful, warm day.  The course was in great shape and everyone enjoyed the day....especially Grace Ireland who shot her all-time low score of 83.  Congratulations Grace!

SWGA Crooked Hollow Playday

Northwood Hills GC hosted our May 3rd playday at the Crooked Hollow Golf Course on a beautiful, sunny day.  Thirty-eight ladies participated and enjoyed the day.  The greens were a bit rough, but that was offset by extremely long "roll" in the fairways.  Hope everyone enjoyed the great breakfast and warm hospitality that John Graham always provides at Crooked Hollow.   For list of winners, check the right column.
