Goodbye University Club

The SWGA had it's final meeting/luncheon at the University Club on Friday, Jan. 14th, when forty-three of our ladies attended our Annual Business Meeting and Luncheon.  As usual, the Club's service was exceptional and we will all miss this meeting place.

The meeting ushered in the new slate of officers for 2011 and highlighted our past year in words as well as a slideshow presentation of the year's activities.  The new officers and reps are listed in the right hand column.

One of the highlights of our meeting is the announcement of winners of the special year-end awards that are presented to ladies who had a minimum of five SWGA golf scores, using the lowest five scores to determine averages.  

Joyce Middleton (ERCC) averaged the lowest gross score of 85.8 while Shirley Pettitt (BWGA) received Honorable Mention for her 86.6 average.  Lowest net scores went to Marge Snyder (NHGC) with a 67.6, followed closely by Kathleen McCoy (BWGA) with a 67.8, then Gayle Gansfuss (ERCC) and Donna Phillips (STCC) who tied with a 69.4, and Donna Cobb (BWGA) with a 70.4.  Low Putts awards went to Donna Phillips with her average of 31 putts, followed by Kathleen McCoy with 31.8.

The Most Improved golfer was Theresa Kruse (PCC) who improved by a whopping 5.7 strokes!  Theresa was followed by Martha Lawhorne (BWGA) who was no slouch with her improvement of 4.1 strokes.

Six ladies received 100% Participation awards:  Donna Cobb, Gayle Gansfuss (ERCC), Paulette Lee (WGAS), Kathleen McCoy, Joyce Middleton, and Phyllis Ryan (ERCC)

Congratulations to everyone.  We are hoping to increase the dollar amount of the end-of-year awards and/or the number of awards in the coming year, budget permitting, so keep up the good work!
