Sun Lakes Lady Niners news


Sheila Barton

The Sun Lakes Lady Niners are looking forward to starting their 2019 season with a fun year of golf and friendship. Golfers are givers, on and off the course, giving advice about swings and rules to enforce. Golfers are givers, helping to organize events, giving their time and effort and writing checks. Golfers are givers, offering friendship and support to others who also love the sport.

At our January 15 monthly meeting, we gladly welcomed six new members: Beverly Dur, Ann Hegney, Lea Horn, Fran Kleinsteuber, Sue Parmenter and Karen Torrance.
