SWGA Championship

This year's championship will be hosted by Stonebridge on September 15 and 16.  Please mark your calendars and make plans to participate in this SWGA event that will "crown" our champion for the year.

The two-day tournament is stroke play.  The first day will be tee times starting at 8:30am and the second day is an 8:30 shotgun start.  The tournament fee is $50 which covers green fees for three days, prizes, and the awards luncheon.  The cart fee will be $16 each day.  Practice rounds are available September 7-9 and September 14.

Entry forms are being distributed to your club in the next few days, so be on the lookout for them.  If you have any problem finding an entry form, click on this link and you can print one:  https://docs.google.com/fileview?id=0B9Dc03NrT_AXMjZmMTljZTgtNzE3Yi00OWE2LWJkNTctODg4ZTc1YjFjYzAw&hl=en&authkey=CMLa2xg
This posting will be updated as more details are available, but we want to be sure you block the days on your calendar so that you can be there.

Insect Repellent/Sunscreen

This may be old news to you ladies, but I just had a revelation today. I had recently been looking for a product that was a bug repellent AND sunscreen so that I wouldn’t have to mess with both. Today, my cart mate offered me some of that exact product!


Avon makes a product called SKIN SO SOFT Bug Guard Plus IR3535® EXPEDITION™ SPF 30 and it comes in an aerosol or pump spray bottle. Right now, the product is on sale for 50% off at $7.99 for the aerosol or $6.99 for the pump (both are 4oz bottles).

I did a little research and found that there is another similar product made by SmartShield but it is more expensive unless you can find it on sale.

If you have an Avon Representative already, you may want to contact her before this sale ends, as I understand that it will not be offered again this year. If you don’t have a representative, you can go to this address www.youravon.com/byarbrough and order online. If you buy $30 right now, the shipping is free. If less than $30, it’s only $3 to be delivered directly to you.

I’ve ordered mine already. I figure there’s still plenty of mosquitoes out there that need to get starved.

Thank You

Joanna Ward (PCC) asked that we post a huge "Thank You" on this site for all the cards, calls, and text messages of support she received due to the loss of her dad, Charles Ward, on June 11th.  He was a frequent visitor to this site as he liked to check up on how his lady golfers were playing.

Our prayers remain with Joanna and her family.

SWGA Playday Stonebridge

Wow!  What a day!  A nice wind helped keep our temperatures down alot for the forty-one ladies who braved the temps and made it out to play today at Stonebridge, where they hosted a "bargain" day of golf for $15.  Our many thanks to Stonebridge and those who made it happen.  The course is beautiful and in great shape, and I KNOW because I visited ALOT of the course.

Today was the first day we tried using "gimme" putts for the SWGA playday and it seemed to work great.  Anything to speed up play is a help when we're in these hot summer months.  Lots of putters got taped-up at the 15" mark.  It's really amazing how a two-foot putt begins to looks like a 15" putt, so the measuring aid was of great help.

And in case you think you had a BAD day, the average NET score for all players was 74.4 and the average number of putts was 35, so maybe it wasn't so bad afterall.  We had a low gross of 83 and a high of 117.

Our next SWGA event will be hosted at Querbes Park Golf Course on Thursday, August 12th, with another 8:30am shotgun start.  The BWGA ladies extend a special invitation for you to come out and see our newly-decorated locker room that is moving from the dark ages into the current world.  More to come on that event.  Watch your email.

For a few pictures and a list of winners, see the right column of this blog.

SSWGA Playday Querbes

Twenty-six ladies turned out for our SSWGA Playday at Querbes on July 1st.  Except for the wet conditions, it was a great day for golf and the course was in great shape.  In addition, the newly remodeled locker room was an enjoyable change for everyone.  If you missed the event, you missed a great day of golf and fellowship.  Check the right column for a list of all winners.
Because our Fox Run playday scheduled earlier in the year was rained-out, we have another SSWGA event on Thursday, July 8th at Fox Run.  Tee times start at 8:00 am and you should be receiving an email notifying you of the time.  Hope to see you there.

2010 Nikki Invitational

Stonebridge Country Club hosted the 2nd annual Nikki Patterson Invitational 4-lady Scramble on June 30th, with 116 ladies participating on 29 teams.  It was a great tournament with some of the coolest weather we've had this summer.  Although it was cart paths only, the course was in great shape and those in charge of the tournament did an outstanding job of organizing it.  Once again, Nikki would have appreciated it.

Winning top honors, the Overall Low Net winners was the team of Granger, Cason, Darnell and Trichell with a net score of 54.  

Plans are already underway for next year's tournament which is scheduled for June 28-29, 2011.  Mark your calendars.  You won't want to miss the fun.  The list of all winners and a slideshow presentation is located in the right column of this blog.  Just click on any picture and they will be enlarged to give you the entire group of pictures.
