March 2015 CWGA Villager Article

By Cathi McLain


As I write this, the bulbs are already popping up, trees are starting to bloom and bud, and the weather has been amazingly spring-like. The golf course is busy, as the nice weather can’t help but beckon golfers. Of course, we all know that March can just as easily bring cold and rainy weather as it has the high 50’s and low 60’s we’ve enjoyed in January and early February, so enjoy every precious outdoor day as it comes.

We have an excellent board lined up to steer us this season. Here’s the line-up:

Thank you! A great big thank you goes out to the Charbonneau Golf Club’s Grounds Maintenance Crew! They cleaned out the CWGA sponsored garden area! It looks great and the crew volunteered to keep it looking good for us! Thanks so much! The CWGA women are very appreciative of your efforts. See picture attached.
