Forty-six women playing golf. Some for the first time. All of us having a great time. For some of us it was like a reunion – touching base with good friends from previous events. For others it was the very first trip with Women on Course. And to a person, it was memorable.
It was such a colorful weekend. Not just the lush green landscape and the deep red brick of the buildings, but bright shirts and skirts dotted the course. Whether we played the rolling hills of the Old Course, the flatter grass of the Lower Cascades or the challenging terrain of the Upper Cascades, you were bound to hear the shrieks of delight when it went in the hole and the gasps when it rolled so close to the rim. It was so much fun.
We first played a scramble on the old course on Friday and met on the lawn for a cocktail party afterwards. We couldn’t have dialed up better weather as we sat on the patio enjoying our wine and planning our evening dinner. We met new friends and now have more places to play golf. Most of us were from the MD/DC/VA area but we had members from Texas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Florida and California there too!
Saturday was your choice. Play 18 or attend a golf clinic and play nine. If you played 18 you could play your own ball or scramble. No pressure. Simply enjoy the game, the company and the beautiful weather. A few new members of Women on Course played their first nine holes of golf – ever! It was a rousing success.
A reception on Saturday evening in the Library was the perfect place to give out awards. A few late-comers missed the hors d’oeuvres – having extended the day and played 36 straight holes of golf! More talk over dinner and later, some dancing. Who knew we were so talented!
On Sunday, we “passed the tee” at breakfast and reminded each other to sign up for the next Three Day in Las Vegas. It was pretty obvious that this was something we all wanted to repeat. If you haven’t yet attended a three-day Women on Course event, be sure to put it on your calendar for October 26-28, 2012! See you there! http://www.womenoncourse.com/events/vegas-3day.php
