The number of OLGA members decreases dramatically during the summer, increasing the odds for those who brave the heat and come out to play. Some weeks, as few as 14 or 15 play, but now that the weather is moderating toward perfect, the numbers are resuming toward the mid-winter highs. It’s always a congenial group, although sometimes, depending on the results, some sip their beverages with a bit of grumpiness at how many balls roll off the fairway, and how many putts don’t fall in the hole! Still, that’s golf, the game we love to play, but never seem to conquer completely.

10/04. Beat the Pro – 10 ladies managed to beat our pro, Eddie Renio, who last played golf in May or June (so they caught him rusty but still good). Winners were Mary Dryseth, Beth Ebmeier, Deb Foster, Eleanor McCann, Deb Horner, Colleen Ritter, B.J. Schuller, Candy Watkinson, Judi Sloan and Shirley Weaver.
Shall we call them our “almost pro” ladies? Congratulations, all.
