Though we are quickly approaching February 2021 there has still been much golf enjoyed in the New Year. The 9-hole, Bunker Bee and 18-hole ladies have been on the course as weather has permitted. Yes, ladies are bundling up and hitting the links. The Bunker Bees have averaged 17 players each outing since the beginning of December. They are still living up to their nineteenth hole reputation with a lot of ladies staying for Irish Coffee after! As always if anyone wants to play 9 holes with them on Mondays and/or Thursdays at 1:00 just email Judi Flakowicz at jflakowicz@gmail.com.

Tuesdays, the ladies have a standing block of tee-times starting at 10:00 during the winter months. Sign-ups for Tuesday play should be made to Tisa Head at tisahead@gmail.com or Kathy Curtis at kpc048@gmail.com. They need to know if you desire to play 9 or 18 holes on Tuesday and if you want to be mixed with ladies from the other group or not. Sign up with these ladies by Sunday afternoon so they can get the tee-times and pairings out by Monday afternoon. When weather cooperates, we are averaging 7-10 ladies on Tuesdays.

For those who have weather or time constraints and only wish to play 9 holes, contact either Judi or Tisa, emails above, and they will add you to their respective group emails. For those wishing to play 18 holes on Monday, Wednesday, and/or Friday, contact me, Cherri Wheeler at chcherri@gmail.com and she will set up tee-times a bit later than what is currently slated for February. The 8:45 am time meets with frost delays, so I’ll work with the Pro Shop staff to make those tee times a bit later. Let me know who is interested.

Finally, if the weather is a bit too cold and wet for your golfing tastes, yet you wish to continue to work on your game I can commend to you Aaron’s “YouTube” videos of type of shots and other suggestions to improve your game, even in the off season. Staying active, stretching and even walking helps as well; spring is just around the corner.

Though I may not be golfing due to responsibilities in Texas right now; I hope you are still out there hitting the ball, getting some exercise and some most needed fellowship with other ladies. Please continue to take care of your- selves and look out for one another. These are trying days ahead with this pandemic and our responses to it.

Hit ‘em long and straight and may they always avoid the sand and water.
