Summer may have been late this year, but she is here to stay with hot and humid days standard fare. For those who missed it, we had a great time the end of June over at Sea Scape playing with their newly formed LGA. We had 24 ladies from all our many groups play either 18-holes or 9-holes on a sister course just a few miles up Croatan Hwy. Nancy Dod, Sea Scape LGA President provided bags lunches for each player as well as bottled water. Rain caused a slight delay and made things much more humid, yet we did get off and had an awesome time and met some wonderful golfers, playing a delightful course. Please watch your email and the September article for the announcement of our hosting of the Sea Scape ladies in September. Tisa Head and Carol Blaha will be our hostesses for the event.

The big event coming up in August is our Power of Pink Quarterly, August 10th. This is our yearly fundraiser for Breast Cancer Awareness. We will again support our local OBX Hospital Development Council who provides screenings, counseling and support for breast cancer patients and survivors. We ask that each of you consider donating to this worthwhile local charity (suggested gift is $25, but please give as you feel appropriate for your family’s situation). Each team can buy tickets for one of our Golf Professionals to hit a shot for the team on #3 and #8. Your team will also get the opportunity to buy string to use on the putting surface to save a shot. (Example: your team has a 5-foot putt, it is your 4th shot, no one makes it, but one of you got within 4 inches of the hole, you may use 4 inches of your string and card a 4 on that hole. Tie a knot at the 4 inches point, that length of string is no longer available for use.). You can continue to use the string until you finish nine-holes, or all the string has been used. No refunds on unused string! All proceeds from the string and tickets for the Pro’s shots on #3 and #8 go directly to the Development Council. As normal we will be playing a Super Ball tournament with a 9:00 am shot gun start followed by a short business meeting and lunch at 11:30 am. By the way last year, we raised over $1100; hopefully, we can break that record giving year. Checks can be written to the LGA noting the Power of Pink in the memo or you may write your check directly to the OBX Hospital Development Council. There will be an envelope in the ladies’ locker room in which to place checks (to either organization), Sandy will collect all proceeds and send to the Development Council after the event with a letter from the LGA.

An important piece of business will be presented to the membership regarding the LGA leadership for 2021-2022 season. The nominating committee will present a slate of officers that they have spent the last quarter “wining and dining.” In November, we will vote on the slate and any nominations from the floor. If you have been contacted by the nominating committee, I hope you will give considered thought to serving next year.

Please stay hydrated on the course, hit them straight and enjoy golf among our guests who are spending money at DWCC.
