WARWICK WOMENS GOLF
We are heading into the end of our year events and we all are starting to have Xmas on our minds (only 6 weeks to go). Firstly we would like to congratulate our President Judy Lester on having an article she wrote to the Inside Golf Magazine published in the November edition which arrived at the clubhouse today. Make sure you get your free copy and read p89 - it’s all about us achieving the Australian Golf Vision 2025 of having 30% of club membership as females - and we’ve achieved it already! You can also read it online - Inside Golf November Issue. Secondly before I list or recent results I would like to remind you all of the upcoming events.
The present committee would love to see as many members to be involved in the AGM on Sunday November 25th at 1.30pm (your contribution is important). Wed 5th Dec is the Medal of Medallists for those competing. Now for those that have exceeded their expectations and made it into the “SHOOT OUT”( 9th Dec) (2 more opportunities to qualify 14th and 17th Nov) please add name and your shirt size to the list in Ladies Club Room. The Xmas Party planning is now in full swing for Wed 12th Dec and a 9 hole fun morning with a partner is planned following a luncheon on the deck. (see flyer sent out by Mary) So get your partner organised and sign up in Club Room. That wraps up the housekeeping so to the results.

Adding a little humour for you to read before I sign off : It was a sunny Saturday morning, a little before 8 a.m. He was on the second hole at Warwick Golf Club and beginning the pre-shot routine, when a piercing voice came over the clubhouse loudspeaker: "Would the gentleman on the woman's tee back up to the men's tee please!" I could feel every eye on the course looking at me. I was still deep in my routine, seemingly impervious to the interruption. Again the announcement: "Would the man on the woman's tee kindly back up to the men's tee." I simply ignored the guy and kept concentrating, when once more, the voice yelled, "Would the man on the woman's tee back up to the men's tee. please?!?!" I finally stopped, turned around, cupped my hands and shouted back: "Would the jerk with the microphone please keep quiet and let me play my second shot!"
