There were 28 ladies that made it out to enjoy a beautiful day on the Fernie Golf and County Club course and we hope everyone had fun. Thank you to Ray and the grounds crew for all their continued hard work on the course. With the course maintenance punching the greens on Tuesday morning we were all thankful not to have to count our putts for the event. Course conditions continue to improve every day and the wonderful weather continues to be a bonus. Staying dry, though not necessarily warm, for a June 10 event made it very pleasant. As always a special thanks goes out to the Ladies’ Day sponsors, including Fernie Chiropractic, Freshies, Overwaitea, Park Place and The Tipple for their continued support of Tuesday Ladies’ Golf.
A big welcome back goes out to Kay Chesley and Bredget Hemsted. It’s great to have you two back on the course with us Tuesdays and it will certainly tighten up competition in the low handicap flight. We look forward to having many of you out on the course next week. Remember, you do not need to play in one of the organized tee times to play in the event or be eligible for the attendance draws. All you need to do is have a Tuesday tee time, sign in and pay for the event in the pro-shop and complete your scoring in the binder located in the ladies locker room. Event winners are determined from the binder details after 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday nights or when the pro-shop closes (whichever is earlier).
There are organized tee times for June 24 at 8:57 a.m., 2:57 p.m. And 5:48 p.m. Our event June 24 is a flighted event with 2 KP’s and event winners for the low putts for each flight (with any luck our greens will be in spectacular condition after the work completed this past week). Come on out, have some fun and meet some new and wonderful ladies.
Remember our mid-season Ladies’ Golf Special will play July 8 and will have a Bedrock/Flintstones theme. Save the dates on your calendar for Golf Fore the Cure July 22 and the Fernie Ladies’ Open Tournament August 19. Special thanks goes out to Aysha Haines who had to do all the scoring June 10 as I was away at the Mens US Open Golf Championship volunteering for the Wellness Team and helping treat players and family during the event.
