Après golf for the Ironwood Lady Niners

Après golf for the Ironwood Lady Niners

Vicki Mendenhall and Beth Zdeblick, Publicity

It’s not just about golf. Socializing after golf can be the best part of the day. It’s always fun after nine holes to stop into the Ironwood clubhouse to munch on some snacks and enjoy a beer, a glass of wine or other beverages of choice. The Lady Niners revel in the opportunity to converse about our golf games, which can make us laugh or maybe cry, but we always take the time to fraternize.

We welcome two new members to our group: Colleen Lykken and Sandra Humes.

Gifted Golden Golfer: Speaking of fun, one of our members, Lori Fleschner, gave new meaning to target golf! On her way to the green on Ironwood’s #16, Lori’s drive hit a rock, bounced into the desert and then landed 20 feet from the pin! Who cares how many putts she had; that’s creative golf!

Other Gifted Golden Golfers were out in force on a recent beautiful January day. Out of 49 players, we had 12 ladies who either had birdies or chip ins while playing the back nine of Ironwood. Darn, we’re good!

Birdies: Linda Breitbach #10, Georgeann Bell #13, Rhonda Stanford #10, Denise Weibel #10, Beth Zdeblick #13, Rachel Enloe #10, Shirley Moore #10

Chip Ins: Barbra Johnston #16, Sandy Roach #15, Diane Coughlin #17, Bev Poffenberger #10, Shirley Moore #10

Reminder: March 20 is the IWLN Invitational: It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere! All proceeds will go to the Arizonans for Children organization. The cost for this fun day is $60 per person.
