EGA Tournament News

Over two days, July 23 & 24, eleven Mill Woods ladies participated in the EGA Amateur, Senior and Super Senior Tournament . The tournament was played at two courses, Blackhawk on Sunday and Devon on Monday. Out of the total of 74 ladies that finished the tournament, 14% of the total were from our club, by far the largest percentage of any club in the EGA, including either of the host clubs!
The Mill Woods Ladies Club was represented by: Doraine Awid, Bev Boersma, Kathy Borden, Cheryl Doucet, Lynn Drozdiak, Mary Lou Fitzgerald, Nancy Gall, Jan Loree-Symon, Janice Martin, Jo-Ann Pethybridge and Elaine Shannon.
The ladies that won in their respective flights were: Lynn Drozdiak, Mary Lou Fitzgerald, Janice Martin, Jo-Ann Pethybridge and Elaine Shannon.
Of special note – Jo-Ann Pethybridge had a hole-in-one on the 6th hole of the Blackhawk course on Sunday, July 23.
Congratulations & thank you to all who represented Mill Woods Ladies Golf Club.

Spring Social Recap

2016 Fall General Meeting Minutes, 2016 Financial Statements and 2017 Budget were all approved.

  • We are welcoming 28 new members this year with league totals of Day 94 and Business 111. There is still room in the Day Ladies League. Registration cut-off is April 23.
  • Business Ladies tee-times will start at 3:30 p.m. again this year but the first 1/2 hour is for 18 hole players only.
  • The City Amateur, Senior, and Super-Senior Golf Tournament will be played in July this year on Sunday, July 23 at Blackhawk Golf Course and Monday, July 24 at Devon Golf Course. It is hoped that this change will encourage more business ladies to participate. This change has also allowed us to spread out the dates for Marshall and Podersky Interclub play and possibility make it more accessible for more ladies.
  • Pro Shop staff remains the same as 2016 as are the green fees. No changes are planned for the course for 2017. Construction of the LRT may impact the course but it is not known yet to what extent.
  • Important dates for April: New Member Orientation is April 18 @ 7:00 p.m. at the course; Rules and Handicap Meeting is April 25 @ 7:00 p.m. at the course; Tee Time bookings for May 2 open on April 25 @ 7:00 a.m.

Spring Social/General Meeting – April 4, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.

With Spring just around the corner many of us find our thoughts turning to golf and wondering when and what will be happening with the Mill Woods Ladies Golf Club this year.
All members, new and returning, are invited to join us at the Mill Woods Clubhouse (aka Woodvale Community League), main floor, 4540 – 50 Street, on Tuesday, April 4th at 7:00 p.m. for the Spring Social/General Meeting and official start of the 2017 Mill Woods Ladies Golf Club season. We are very excited to see everyone again and share plans for this upcoming year.
The Spring Social is the kick-off but we are required to do some review of last year’s business (minutes from the fall meeting and 2016 financials), and then we can look forward to 2017 (budget, sign-ups for the Marshall and Podersky Interclub play, New Member Orientation, Rules & Handicap Clinic and Group Lessons with Bruce Hardy).
There will be light snacks, a cash bar and lots of information to share. Looking forward to seeing one and all!
And finally, the Spring 2017 Newsletter is now available. Click here to read.
