SWGA Annual Meeting and Luncheon

SWGA 2014 President Lillian Granger welcomed over forty ladies who attended the Annual Meeting and Luncheon at Southern Trace Country Club.  After a very tasty lunch, the past year’s activities were discussed with successes all-around.

Events Chairman Marge Snyder presented the End-of-Year Awards.  This year we had only five ladies who achieved 100% participation:
Congratulations, ladies!  Also commendable are five others who missed only one of the eight events: Hui Bordelon, FRLGA; Martha Lawhorne, BWGA; Kathleen McCoy, BWGA; Suzanne Patton, BWGA; and Alyce Wyche, PCC.

There were twenty-three ladies who qualified for the other end-of year awards, meaning they had at least five stroke-play scores in required events.  Winners were:
4th Low Net (Avg. 70.6): Marge Snyder, NHGC
3rd Low Net (Avg. 70.0): Suzanne Patton, BWGA
2nd Low Net (Avg. 69.4): Vicki Cella, NHGC
1st Low Net (Avg. 69.2): Kyong Lee, BWGA
2nd Low Gross (Avg. 83.8): Kathy Davis, STCC
1st Low Gross (Avg. 80.6): Mary Lynn Stuart, ERCC (and 2014 City Champion)
2nd Low Putts (tie) (Avg. 32.6): Vicki Cella, NHGC/Debbie Magee, WGAS
1st Low Putts (tie) (Avg. 32.2): Kathy Davis, STCC/Marge Snyder, NHGC
The most improved Handicap Index was Kyong Lee, BWGA, who lowered her index from 25.1 to 20.7.  Good job, Kyong!!  And just behind Kyong was Joan Day, FRLGA, who decreased from 22.4 to 18.3.  Great golfing, ladies!
Lillian then introducted the 2015 Officers:
President:  Kathleen McCoy, BWGA
1st Vice-President: Joyce Middleton, ERCC
2nd Vice-President: Suzanne Tinsley, WGAS
Secretary: Jill Litton, NHGC
Treasurer: Mary Moore, FRLGA
Events: Moise Allen: STCC

The Club Reps for 2015 are listed in the left column of this blog.

Incoming President McCoy reported on a few changes being made for 2015.  One significant change involves the End-of-Year Awards for 100% participation.  There are seven “required” events to achieve 100% participation, and that doesn’t include Team Matches.  The Board of Directors decided that if a member missed only ONE required event during the year, but played in at least ONE day of Team Matches, she would still achieve 100% participation.  That makes Team Matches your “insurance policy”.

The new SWGA message logo was also introduced and pretty much describes our group:
The loss of Palmetto Country Club caused the re-organization of the SWGA Board and some of the duties, which therefore caused a change in the Constitution.  It will also affect the make-up of Team Matches which will be handled by Suzanne Tinsley this year.  The format will remain the same, but the East/West concept may have to change to some other type of division.

Dates of this year’s events are listed near the bottom of the blog for your convenience and has been sent out to all SWGA members via email.
