NewBees Golf News


Are you a golf widow? Have you ever thought about trying the game of golf but it was too intimidating or too expensive? Do you enjoy being outside and getting a bit of exercise? Are you a new Duck Woods member and would like to meet some amazing ladies and gain loads of new friends? Would you like to spend more time with your husband sharing a common interest? If any or all of these apply, have we got a deal for you!

Carol Riggin, having moved to Southern Shores and having joined Duck Woods, addressed these concerns when she started the NEWBEES GOLF program in October 2014. This program is designed for ladies who have never played before and don’t know the first thing about golf. Of course, those of you that may have played years ago or have just a tiny bit of experience are also welcome!

This program has become so popular that last year over 30 women signed up! Unfortunately, COVID19 hit and the starting date was delayed. In June, it was determined that the program could be safely started. There were twenty brave souls willing to move forward and all of our NEWBEES GOLF gatherings were held outdoors with required social distancing. There were two sessions of ten women each once a week. That being said, let’s hope we won’t have to go to those extremes this year! Keep an eye out for more information to come in the next months through the Duck Woods Country Club Newsletter and WADWCC.

My name is Colleen Hummel and my email is…feel free to contact me if you have any questions that I can hopefully answer for you! There are four of us ladies that “graduated” from NEWBEES this past year that will help coordinate the program in 2021. We will introduce ourselves in more detail in the coming months.
