Cottonwood Lady Niners had two busy opening months, including a welcome-back celebration brunch and a Turkey Hunt on the golf course Nov. 19. There were 72 players in the hunt, and two grand prizes of $20 were awarded to purchase turkeys. Winners were Cindy Dawson and Laura Carothers.
The annual Christmas party was after play on Dec. 17. Winners of the 2020 Ugly Sweater Contest will be announced in January with photos. A January New Year’s Celebration is planned with champagne and hors d’oeuvres for everyone who plays on Jan. 14, to welcome in the 2021 season. It’s still not too late to join in for golf, friendship, and fun.
On a personal note: I just joined Niners last year, and the Christmas party was one of the first events I attended. When I witnessed the enthusiasm this group displayed for the sweater contest and their enjoyment with each other, I knew this was the right group for me.

In closing, some words of advice from legendary golfer Ben Hogan, “When asked by a golfer for advice on why so many of the golfer’s shots go left, he said: ‘Why don’t you aim more to the right?’”
