Women’s Golf – Why should you never iron a 4-leaf clover? You don’t want to press your luck!

The most important information is that Niguel Shores Women’s Golf club will meet at Aliso Creek Golf Course on Monday, March 11, at 9:00 a.m. for a ‘Fun Day.’ Also, on the second Monday of every month, April 8, May 13, and so on, your friends and neighbors gather for a friendly nine holes of golf followed by a lunch/meeting at the golf course snack bar and you are invited to join them. A sense of humor and just a bit of a competitive nature are the only requirements for membership. A Calloway System is used for scoring, so a golf handicap is not necessary. If this interests you, you might call Gretchen Rask (489-2259) or Pam Strayer (499-4737) who are planning the game-of-the-day for March. They will add your name to players for the day. If you want to know more about the club, you might call Marlene Lynch (493-6494) or Lee Sweeney (661-5924) who are president and vice-president respectively.

In February, hearts and flowers reigned. As a Valentine gift, each player was told to circle three holes before she teed off for her round of golf. The gift part: after she turned in her score card at the end of nine holes, those scores were deducted from her total score. This allowed Judy Boitano to post a gross score of 24 and win the game of the day (a birdie on hole #6 helped). Brenda Tuckley took the prize for the lowest number of putts for the day with 15. Gretchen Rask took the prize for being closest to the flagstick in two shots on the 4-par hole #9.

The weather cooperated beautifully and about 20 members showed up at Aliso Creek for the day. Some came especially to bid farewell to one of our most loyal members who moved to Texas the end of February. May Gramer expressed her delight in the friendship she had enjoyed in the club, “Since day one,” as she said. She will be missed.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
