Play day opens Cottonwood Lady Niners’ season

Cottonwood’s Lady Niners open their golf season with a Play Day and meeting Thursday, November 5.

“We’ll be playing for Low Net honors on the back nine,” announces President Bette Lu Buchanan, “but having fun will be the order of the day!” That, however, is not unusual as the membership of about 85 ladies are known for enjoying golf, fellowship and laughter.

Play begins at 1:00 p.m. each Thursday with a short meeting on the Pro Shop patio preceding the action. A sign-up sheet will be posted in the Pro Shop’s outdoor bulletin board with registration deadline being 5:00 p.m., Tuesday, prior to Thursday play.

Membership is open to Sun Lakes property owners.

Assisting President Buchanan will be Co-Vice Presidents Dixie McQuaid and Barb Schmoekel with Cathy Kinnick serving as Secretary and Lynn Tanner, Treasurer.

McQuaid and Schmoekel will chair the 2016 Member-Guest Tournament, always the highlight of the year’s golfing season.
