CWGA SHIRTS AVAILABLE

Our popular red logo’d golf shirts are available for new members and those who did not obtain one last season. Most members contributed $20 to the cost of the excellent quality and fit of the Greg Norman shirts. Contact Linda Owen at ls13owen@gmail.com if you are interested. If we don’t have your size, we will ask our wonderful golf pro Chris Bensel to order it for you. The red shirts come in handy on special days’ play events and are worn by all volunteers during the Men’s Invitational. Order yours today!

TIN CUP TOURNAMENT OPEN TO WOMEN GOLFERS

John McClain, president of the Men’s Club reminds us that this year’s Tin Cup Tournament sponsored by the Men’s Club will be open to women golfers. Check in the pro shop or the Mens’ Club section in the Club room for more information.

Golf Clubs’ Mutual Interest in Working Together

There are many schedules and gifting opportunities which are sometimes duplicated which could be shared or done in a cooperative spirit. The Niners, Mens’ Clubs (nine and 18) and CWGA are meeting to explore ideas in which all clubs can participate. More information will be forthcoming.

As we celebrate Earth Month, CWGA is committed to widening its sphere and making a positive impact by treating our community, each other, and the golf course with kindness and respect.

As always, tee it high and let it fly!
