The women's golf club holds its first general meeting and luncheon in more than a year with 67 members attending.

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Fourth of July even though this year our state is open, the very unseasonably hot weather made for a quieter one with a ban on fireworks.

Our scramble was played on July 1, and for the first time in over a year, we were able to have our general meeting and luncheon in the Clubhouse. Sixty-seven members attended to enjoy sandwiches and cake provided by Jan Meek and Marja Gillan, who both had made holes-in-one this past month. Congratulations to both of them. At the meeting, new members were introduced. There were 11 this year with our newest member being Yong Semet. Rob went over some new rules that were introduced this year, such as no power carts on the fairway on all par 3 holes.

Winners of the scramble were: Low Gross winning team: 1st Place: T. Gallager, S. Dorney, C. Pitre and J. Beck. 2nd Place: S. Brewer, V. Edwards, M. Gillan and E. Madden. Low net winning Team: 1st Place: C. Baldwin, K. Connolly, J. Heintz and, L. McCall. 2nd Place: M. Coughlin, J. Brown, D. Brosowske and C. Hargis. 3rd Place: L. Gray, M. Lauder, R. Nash and J.

A Consolation round was held again this year. Congratulations to P. Cherrick who is the Consolation Champion. J. Wargo, 2nd Place, S. Brewer, 3rd Place and P. Dufort, 4th Place. There were only enough players for one flight this year.

The Charity Tournament is set for July 15. Sandy Brewer (Charity) and Pam Michael (Golf) are joint chairs and our charity again this year is the Caring Closet. This is such a worthwhile charity that helps so many families in our community.

Sign up for the Club Championship, which remains open until Aug. 4. The tournament will be held on Aug. 11, 13, 18 and 20. There will be teams made up of all four flights- A's with A's, B's with B's, C's with C's and D's with D's. There will be winners in each category but only one Club Champion. Awards will be announced at the luncheon on Aug. 19. Registration for the luncheon is July 12-Aug. 12. Cost is $7.

Thankfully we are getting back to normal and with milder weather hopefully we will enjoy a beautiful summer.
