LWMGA Guest Day -- June 2006
Here we are enjoying another fine day of golf with
the ladies of the LWMGA and their guests at the Highlands Golf
Course. This event is special because we not only get to share
our club event with friends but this is our "Rally for a Cure" event
where we raise funds for the Susan G. Koman foundation in support of
breast cancer research. Players can donate to the cause and take
a shot at a significant prize on a select par 3. This year our
Rally hole was the #4 hole at Highlands.
Michelle Hinton organized the Rally portion of the event with her two
helpers (daughters, Melissa and Lauren).
As always THANKS MICHELLE for all your hard work, and to those ladies
who donated generously.
As our day began the winds were an early factor. The Highlands
course is Lincoln's example of links golf. Very few trees to
contend with but many other obstacles to challenge our golf games.
Who said there were no
trees??? OK, so there are a few right off the first tee but Linda
Perry's group managed to avoid those little problem
children. These next few images are more reflective of the
wide open spaces and long prairie grasses that greet us.
So, with that, the ladies are off. Of course, there were many
smiles and fun times on the course as Jean and Carol demonstrate.
While Bev and Denise focus on the next hole and forge ahead. Of
course, Tammy and Carla are showing that walkers can hold their place
in the cart vs walker race. Tammy by a nose with Callen coming in
a distant 3rd.
Early on there was an incident where a player had to call for
assistance because of the dive bombing birds. Jenny has it under
control however, but she really should have one hand on the wheel don't
(JENNY, BIRD ON YOUR SIX!!!)
OK, call in air support.....
course you never knew if there
was a spy hanging around or just an onlooker. Looks shifty to
me...don't you think? OK Joy focus. :>
Ah, ladies, no off road activities, or maybe it was easier to lean out
of the cart to get a better view of the little flags in the fairways to
show us the way. OK, does it seem funny to you that there
are no little white balls among the flags in this fairway???
However, some gals had very nice shots as these next image
attest. There are two ladies who are going to be very happy when
they get to the green.
And all day long there were conversations going on amongst the groups
to see which ball is in the best position. How should they
approach the next shot, etc.
Tammie really got into this putt but I'm not sure she can see that far
back...can you? Or, from the look of things it is it giving her a
Then there were other ladies who couldn't believe they were going to
have to hit their next shot from some of the places they ended
up. But they hiked up their pants and got down to
business. Another group appeared to be stalking the hole as
they paced every which way. I guess it shows there are any number
of ways to attach a shot.
And of course, when all is said and done these gals all appeared to be
having a great time. Here are just a few:
