This popular invitational draws women from Shadow Hills and beyond. Registration, practice rounds, and the two-day competition were August 21-23. Fortunately the weather was the best this area has experienced in several weeks. The Rock & Roll theme was carried out through the décor, including a jukebox on the patio to pick and play favorite oldies.
There were 83 golfers making new friends as they enjoyed light breakfasts, fabulous lunches, desserts and prizes galore!! More than 30 raffle prizes lined the ballroom walls just waiting to be whisked away by lucky ticket winners.
Michelle Kottas caught loads of action from the recent Women’s Invitational Tournament. It is evident from the pics, that these ladies had a ton of fun!

With a number of familiar names on the leader board, one would have to ask how many are actually of Irish descent? Carmen, Johnson, Jensen, Abrahamson, Hill, and Bokn all collected money from the tournament “Pot of Gold,” and represent the melting pot of cultures that meld when the drinks are green, the golf is fun, and the weather is spectacular!

Hello Shadow Hills Senior Men (SHSM) Golfers,
Signup for the 2023 SHSM season opening event at Shadow Hills on Friday April 7. This will be our 15th year for the group, and we are expecting another good turnout again this year. We are planning to have 15 events this year with points (9 at Shadow Hills and 6 away) plus several bonus events. Players in the group annually participate in about 10 of the 15 events on the average and only a few players participate in all 15 events. We do a random draw to set up the groups, so it gives us all a chance to meet and golf with
other Senior Men at our wonderful Country Club.
Our events are low key, relaxing but competitive. We will have two events per month at Shadow Hills in April, May, and June, followed by three events at Shadow Hills after July 1 until the season ends on September 1st with a season ending finals and luncheon. The six events away courses this year include events at Eugene Country Club, Tokatee and Emerald Valley plus we will have some bonus events. The annual fee for our group is still only $100 (same as 15 years ago) or players may pay $10 per event. Away events have an additional fee. Please open the attachment for the 2023 schedule, rules, sign up procedure and a 2022 recap.

On February 21, 2023, Shadow Hills lost a long-time employee and friend, with the passing of Jake Witherspoon. Jake was the Assistant Superintendent on the golf course maintenance team for the many years, who began working at Shadow Hills in 2002. Jake began his turf management career maintaining baseball and sports fields. This experience led him to golf, where he also worked at Middlefield and Tualatin Country Club. Jake was instrumental in helping to improve the course conditions at Shadow Hills, and in his 20+ year tenure, was part of significant upgrades, while serving as Assistant Superintendent.
Jake was well-liked and respected by his coworkers, and will be greatly missed.
A Celebration of Life for Jake Witherspoon will be held Thursday, March 9th at 4pm at Shadow Hills.

It was a “Winter Wonderland” at the 2022 Holiday Charity Luncheon Wednesday, December 7th. Christmas trees, seasonal quilt projects, snowflakes and snowy centerpieces decorated the ballroom. Nearly 90 Shadow Hills women and guests mingled as they listened to the Northside Clarinet Quartet play Christmas favorites.
This year the event was dedicated to the memory of Cindy Anderson, a long time Shadow Hills favorite of anyone who knew her. Betsy Ovitt presented the back-story to this lovely women telling how her closest friends rallied around her during her illness. Green Hill Humane Society was the obvious choice to be this year’s beneficiary representing Cindy’s love of animals and support of pet adoption. Cindy’s own dog, Buddy, a Green Hill rescue, was the guest of honor along with his new parents.
Attendees donated over $2500 through direct donations and the purchase of raffle tickets. Kudos again this year to the Shadow Hills quilting group for the amazing creations they donated.
The Hearts for Hospice resale “store” was able to collect $450 through sales and donations. Their participation is appreciated.
Amy and Rob Bennett funded all the desserts for a new event this year – The Dessert Dash! Although no running was involved it was fun for reps to chose a special dessert for their table. Thank you Bennett’s for your generosity.
And finally thank you to our amazing staff: Stacy and her team, Amy and the banquet crew and those behind the scenes that made this event a success.

The Long-Term Planning Committee and the Membership Committee are seeking your input. The Membership Committee is tasked with acquiring and keeping members for the club, as well as determining member satisfaction. The Long-Term Planning Committee is tasked with making recommendations to the Board of Directors for capital improvements and projects that benefit the club and its members. These responsibilities require both committees to have one foot in the present by, maintaining the programs and facilities that meet our current member’s needs, and one foot in the future by planning for programs and facilities that will appeal to the next generation of members, keeping Shadow Hills a successful and viable operation well into the future.
The projects listed below illustrate our commitment to both the present and future. Some of these projects enhanced existing facilities to provide more efficient operation, while other projects provided amenities that will improve the long term operation of the facility.
An example of recent projects that have been completed include:
- Filbert Orchard (which will provide long term annual revenue)
- New cooler and storage facility to enhance banquet services
- Greenside bunker replacement and improvements
- On-going fairway bunker replacement project
- Lighting the trees along the Sovern entrance
- Security cameras for the facility
- Paving access roads and improvements to the cart barn
- Grounds maintenance equipment purchases
In the upcoming budget, we will be building a new bathroom on the back nine, as well as purchasing new mowers and other grounds maintenance equipment. In addition, there are countless smaller projects that are part of the maintenance of our facility, but do not fall under the purview of either committee.
However, larger projects often exceed available funding sources and require a longer-term plan to successfully design, develop and fund the project. The largest of these projects was the construction of the current clubhouse, completed in 2012. Planning for this project began in 2008-2009 after Membership Committee data indicated that the old clubhouse was a detriment in gaining new members and a continued decline in annual membership was likely to lead to a membership level that would not be capable of financial support of SHCC. The new facility is unquestionably the major component in the ongoing success of Shadow Hills.
At the present time, The Long-Range Planning Committee and the Finance Committee are looking at the prospect of replacing our existing golf course irrigation system. There is no indication of an eminent failure of the existing system, but the complexity and high cost of this project requires a multi-year plan to identify scope, costs and develop ways to pay for the project.
Before any planning is done, any budgets discussed, or any further discussion takes place, both committees are seeking the input of the membership regarding what is most important to the future of the club.
PLEASE NOTE. The following survey is NOT A VOTE on any item, but is merely a way to gauge the interest of our membership on possible directions for our future.

At the annual meeting, held October 20th, the new board members were announced. Each member will serve a three year term. Returning for a second term (only two concurrent terms allowed by the ByLaws) are our current President, Marilyn France, and Phil Burns. Elected to his first position on the Board was Chris Looney.
Thanks to all who ran, and all who serve the club with their time and commitment to making Shadow Hill our “home away from home.”
This was the first “live and in person” Annual Meeting held by the club since 2018. In an effort to share the information with as many of our members as possible, we are posting the video recap as well as the supporting documents for our members to see or download.
Thanks to all who came out in person, and the amazing management and staff that make Shadow Hills our “Home away from home!”

It was truly a “Family Effort” with her husband on the bag, and her Mom taking care of her two-year-old son. But, the great golf was all Krissy, as she became one of just a handful of players to win the Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship in their first try! The U.S. Mid-Am is a USGA event and one of the most prestigious amateur tournaments in the world. It is open to all amateur golfers age 25 and over.
Krissy advanced through the stroke play portion of the tournament and then won 6 matches to become the Champion.
Quoting from the story on the USGA website, “Krissy Carman will have plenty of stories, photos, articles and videos to share with her son in future years after Thursday’s 2-and-1 triumph over Aliea Clark in the 18-hole final of the 35th U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship, as she became the first mother to win this title since Ellen Port in 2011.”
It is rare to win, but even more rare to be a young Mom, who only recently returned to golf after discovering that her son, Conner, enjoyed being in a jogging stroller while Mom was walking and playing 18 holes.
We are excited at this amazing accomplishment, and even more excited to know that Shadow Hills was part of her story!
The annual Couple’s Classic was played on September 11th, 2022, under smoky skies that could have been brought about by hot scoring! Gross winners, Matt and Crissy Carman led the field with a 69, while perennial Senior Champs, Robb and Trish Johnson hit the top of the Senior Division with a 74. Net Champions for Regular and Seniors were Vinny and Ellie Tami, and Terry and Connie Green, respectively.

The Senior Men’s Group of Shadow Hills CC held an “Employee Appreciation” golf event, with SHSM members playing a scramble event with several of our Golf Shop and Outside Employee Staff members. It is a small token of appreciation for the great job they do all year to support the club, as well as the Senior Men’s group. We are blessed by the talented group of staff who make Shadow Hills an important part of our daily lives. This letter was posted by our “Commissioner” Steve Mason.
Hello Shadow Hills Senior Men and Staff,
We had an outstanding day to show our appreciation to the world class staff at Shadow Hills today. A full field of 40 golfers/10 teams (29 Seniors and 11 staff) enjoyed the friendly but competitive 9-hole scramble competition after a wonderful lunch outside. 14 Senior Men won golf shop credit from a prize pool of $335. The Seniors paid for the staff lunches plus the staff will split well over $1,300 in prize money generously donated by the Shadow Hills Senior Men.
Jeff Smith’s team had the best score of 29 (7 under par) and Jeff had both long drives. He will be well rewarded with a $250 check for his success and each Senior on his team will get $30 in golf shop credit. But I think what might be more important to Jeff is the bragging rights he will have for the next 12 months with the staff until we do this again. Everyone who participated today were the real winners with a great day of golf and fellowship!
Speaking on behalf of us seniors, we sincerely appreciate the wonderful work of our world class staff and greens crew. We are looking forward to 2023 for our 15th year of Senior Men’s golf at Shadow Hills!
Commish Steve Mason
Shadow Hills Senior Men’s Golf Commissioner

A View from “Inside the Ropes” – Colin Inglis Insight from Playing In a Major PGA Tournament- Extended
Playing in a PGA Major tournament event, as a working club assistant pro, with a family to raise, and limited practice time, is tantamount to being a “local hero,” nightclub band, guitar player, and then being asked to share the stage in an arena concert with the Rolling Stones. Exciting, fun, and terrifying don’t begin to explain the range of emotions that even the best club golf pros would experience. But our own Assistant Golf Pro, Colin Inglis had that very opportunity, by earning a slot in the recent PGA Player’s Championship, in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
I have known Colin since his days in High School. To say that he is “super competitive” would be an understatement of epic proportions. So, he wasn’t pleased with his final scores, even though a huge range of very well-known, long-time tour pros also had similar scores below the cut line. Kim, Poulter, Westwood, Stenson, Johnson, Yang, Garcia, Scott, Cantaly, and Harrington, are just a handful of tour professionals who also didn’t make the cut to “play on the weekend.”
But, this article isn’t about the outcome, it’s about the experience. One that none of us SHCC member-golfers could ever imagine. What follows is a short list of experiences related to me in a casual conversation upon his return to “normal life.”

Welcome to Our New Course Superintendent
Eric’s professional experience also includes time at California Golf Club and Chambers Bay. We are excited to have Eric join the team here at Shadow Hills and believe he will be a great fit with the staff and membership. He will begin in early May.
Eric will no doubt continue the great legacy of work and course improvements done by our previous Course Superintendent, and new Gm, Ryan Wyckoff.
Look for a more expansive introduction article on Eric in June’s Newsletter and here on ShadowHillsExtra.com.
An overflow crowd attended Dave and Jenny’s retirement reception on April 3rd, to recap an overwhelmingly successful 16 years of service to Shadow Hills CC.
Starting off with an introduction by current Board President, Marilyn France, it was officially MC’d by longtime board President and committee member, Jim Creech. After several brief stories about Dave and Jenny’s work at Shadow Hills, the event was turned over to Patric Miller, who presented a “History of the Shelton Era” video (see link below).
Following the video, several members spoke of their gratitude, and personal stories of Jenny’s helpfulness and creativity, as well as Dave’s dedication to making significant changes to Shadow Hills that will last for generations to come. And before Dave gave his closing remarks, new General Manager Ryan Wyckoff voiced his appreciation for working with Dave, as well as his beliefs that the club will continue to improve on the legacy that Dave and Jenny created.
Several, “Thank you gifts” were presented; by the board (a generous bonus check), several of the GMs who worked with Dave (a signed Aaron Rodgers Superbowl MVP Jersey) and a gift certificate for Jenny to Gray’s Gardens, a well as a signed SHCC flag from the staff, and a framed Register Guard article from Jim Hukill, from the huge interview done when the new clubhouse opened.
It was a wonderful day, with gratitude, laughs, and a few tears abounding.
We all wish Dave and Jenny success in their “newly retired” state, and look forward to seeing them on the course, as members!
CLICK BELOW for the Video and the PowerPoint presentation.
Greetings to all members of Shadow Hills Country Club,
After an extensive search process, beginning in December, with a large number of qualified applicants, it was decided that the best fit for the future of our club was our very own, Ryan Wyckoff!

We congratulate Ryan and thank all those who worked hard to make this decision. We look forward to this exciting new transition!

In light of increased reports of Covid-19 cases in Lane County, as well as across the state, and the nation, it is important to understand our role in keeping our staff and members safe. It is also important to understand the role that our County plays in tracing and reporting cases that may be associated with members and staff. The following procedures are to be followed in the event of a reported case at SHCC.
- Lane County is responsible for all contact tracing for those living within the county. If a case is reported, it may include club members as part of this tracing for someone who tests positive for Covid-19. The club is informed if this happens.
- Individual members who test positive are automatically reported to Lane County Health, and contact tracing begins, alerting others who may have been exposed.
- Lane County will call SHCC for recommended actions involving the report, but unless an employee shows symptoms and tests positive, the case remains private between the member and Lane County.
- All information regarding contact tracing, isolation and recommended procedures between members are private and confidential.
- If an employee is identified for testing positive, further actions may be taken by the General Manager and Board of Directors, to isolate or shut down aspects of SHCC operations.
- For more information on Lane County Contact Tracing- CLICK HERE
It is important to note, that the safety of our Members and Staff is paramount. However, all members and staff must do their part to follow the guidelines and restrictions set by Lane County and the State of Oregon, as well as the policies set by SHCC.
- Masks are to be worn indoors, including locker rooms, club house, Pro Shop, or any other area where social distancing is difficult to manage.
- Reservations are required for ALL DINING, as an aid in contract tracing. This includes indoor and outdoor dining.
- Use Common Sense with clusters of people. You are only as safe as the people you trust to be safe around you.
After rescheduling twice due to Covid/Weather/Fires and anything else 2020 could throw at us, the Shadow Hills CC Couple’s Classic Championship was finally played on Sunday, 9/20 (take that 2020!).
Bruce and Cheyenne Burbank took the overall Couples Club Champion Honors, with Rob and Tricia Johnson claiming the “Senior Club Champions” title.
The weather was almost perfect (if you don’t mind a bit of smoke with your air), and some great, low scores were posted.

They came, they gathered, they social distanced, played and were fed. And in the end, another entertaining “Covid-Altered” golf event was held at Shadow Hills.
From all reports, everyone had a blast, and came away well-fed by the feast put on by our restaurant staff. While there was no after dinner dancing or organized entertainment (some would say trying to eat with masks is entertainment enough), there was a lot of fun golf played, with new and old faces on the winner’s leader-board.
