Wow!! I did it...placed 1st in the 2019 AGA Women's State Senior Amateur Stroke Play Championship Masters Flight ages 75 - 79. I won low net. What a thrill. We played in Sun City West near Scottsdale, AZ. Temperature all three days were at 110 degrees. Lots of gator aid & cold cloths around the neck. I won $90.00 & brought the Trophy home for a year. I need to return it this time next year so I will be playing in the last flight (the legends 80 plus). What a super birthday present I gave myself! Who said 80 is old. Looking forward to celebrating my big birthday on Sept. 25th.
Thanks to all of you who gave me encouragement & support during the past month.
Love. Gail 🏌🏿♀️🏌🏿♀️🍷🍷

HOLE-IN-ONE TRAIN STILL ON THE MOVE
The heat of the summer is building and so are the Holes-In-One. Congratulations to Sally Drennen on her fourth HIO. She aced T6 during the Crazy Par 3 event on June 28th. Just a reminder regarding the Hole-In-One program; it is voluntary and a member may join any time during the year but must have paid before the hole-in-one occurs. The HIO may occur any day of the week; it must be during an 18-hole round of golf played on any of the SB HOA#1 courses. It may be counted on away courses if it is part of any SBWGA-18 sanctioned event. When doesn't a Hole-In-One count? Please look at the following link: https://www.golf.com/golf/2019/07/02/21-times-hole-in-one-doesnt-count/
