This & That
On February 2, we held a general meeting. Ellen related information about our the new Course Superintendent, Sylvester Lucas. Sounds like there a lot of good things planned for the future. Welcome Mr. Lucas.
The Most Improved player of the Month for January was Sandra Watkins.
One of our favorite members, Anita Mareschal had knee replacement surgery so we will miss her for a while. Hoping for a quick recovery for Anita.
Our president, Ellen Koury, attended a meeting of Presidents at SDCWGA to discuss coming changes. In 2018 all women’s associations in Southern California will be folded into SCGA. Handicapping will be changed and will be done by SCGA and USGA. Membership dues will increase considerably. SDCWGA will still be operating—just not doing handicapping, rating, rules, etc. SDCWGA will continue to run tournaments and team play for women in the San Diego area. The dues at present for SCGA are higher than the dues we have been paying to SDCWGA. In addition, all members of SCGA will be members of USGA so we will be paying dues to the USGA too. Many changes coming. We can expect the dues to go up in 2018.
Our Women’s Club continues to grow. So far this month we have two more new members. Welcome to Gayle Beasley and Donna Huhn.
