Presentation of the 2013 End of Year Awards was made by Events Chairman Suzanne Tinsley. This year was a record year for 100% participation with twelve ladies receiving the award….

To qualify for End of Year awards, you must have at least five stroke-play event scores. If you have more than five, the lowest five scores are used in figuring the winners. All winners got gift cards from Dick’s Sporting Goods.
The Low Gross score average went to Mary Lynn Stuart (ERCC) with an average 81.4 and 2nd Low Gross scorer was Lillian Granger (STCC) with 83.8.
There was a tie for the Low Net score of 71 and that was shared by Gayle Gansfuss and Martha Lawhorne (BWGA). Third place was Shirley Pettitt with a 72.2 and 4th place was Bobbie Jo Almond (PCC).
The best putting average for the year was 31.4 putts by Kathleen McCoy followed closely by a tie for second place with 31.6 for Suzanne Tinsley (WGAS) and Vicki Cella.
The most improved handicap index award went to Suzanne Tinsley who went from a 14.6 to 10.2. That’s some good golfing!
Congratulations to all the winners! Let’s try to make a new record for participation next year!!!
Mary Moore at Fox Run announced that Fox Run has been opened to the public. She provided forms that must be completed and returned to the Base. Once the security clearance is done, you will be notified to go to the visitor’s center at the West Gate of the Base. They will take your picture and give you the pass.
After you have the pass, you can get on Base to play golf anytime you want by simply showing the pass. Every person entering for that reason must have a pass. The cost of play is $30 and they are offering the first day you play for FREE! Can’t beat it!
If you were not at the meeting or did not get a form, CLICKHERE to download the form. Information regarding the rates is included in THIS DOCUMENT. After you complete the form, you can scan it and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Another change for 2014 is an increase in playday fees from $20 to $25. We really can’t complain since it has been eight years since our last increase.
