Women’s Holiday Luncheon Recap-Pictures and Song Lyrics


The Holiday luncheon was Wednesday, December 2nd and was a huge success, with more than 120 in attendance!

The event included wine tasting, holiday cocktail samples, entertainment, and amazing food from Chef Diana!

The festivities included a quilt raffle (compliments of our own SHCC Quilters!), Hearts for Hospice shop and the annual wine bag grab (lots was grabbed).

All proceeds support this year’s charity Kid’s FIRST.

Pictures and Song Lyrics from the “Entertainment” are available by clicking “Read More” Below!

An amazing time was had by all. As the “Entertainment,” Patric Miller led the room in several renditions of “Golf Themed” Christmas Carols.  Several requests to reprint those lyrics have been made. You will find them by scrolling to the bottom of the page!

Song Lyrics for a Golfing Christmas

Deck The Halls at SHCC
Sung to the Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly
lyrics by Patric Miller

Deck the halls with boughs of holly
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
‘Tis the season to be jolly
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
Don we now our golf apparel
Fa-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la.
Gather for Some Christmas Carols
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

See the Open Course Before Us…
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
Come and Join Our Happy Foursome
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
Playing On through Rain or Chills
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
The Women Here at Shadow Hills
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

Silent Swing Thoughts
Sung to the Tune of Silent Night
lyrics by Patric Miller

Please hit the ball…Let it go straight…
Set up low…Don’t turn late…
Stop that twitching, Don’t act like a child
Make good contact, You’ll hit it a mile…

Roll your wrists and pronate…
Roll your wrists and pronate.

Swing almost there…Feeling them stare…
Just ignore…A little more…
You won’t shank, like you did the last time…
Hook and slice, please get out of my mind…

Why Do We Play This Game?
Can’t wait to do it again!

Golf…It Drives Me Insane…
Can’t wait to do it again!

Jingle Balls
Sung to the Tune of Jingle Bells
lyrics by Patric Miller

Dashing to the tee, just a little late,
My foursome’s set to go, chill out for goodness sake!
Finally get my turn, to start the round off right…
Tee up and take a mighty swing, good golly what a sight!

OH… Hook the Ball, Slice the Ball, Dribble off the Tee,
This isn’t how I pictured it, And now it’s in the Trees!
Hit it Fat, Hit it Thin, I really came to play…
If I can just relax a bit, Today Could be my Day!!

Halfway through the round, no pars or birdies yet…
a beverage at the turn, and then I’ll be all set…
Just keep my head quite still, and keep my left arm straight…
I’m sure this is the perfect time, to make the back nine great!

OH… Hook the Ball, Slice the Ball, Dribble off the Tee,
This isn’t how I pictured it, And now it’s in the Trees!
Hit it Fat, Hit it Thin, I really came to play…
If I can just relax a bit, Today Could be my Day!!

We’ve reached the final hole…I’ve hit the green in three…
And if I sink this putt, the day will turn for me!
A solid stroke I take…the ball is right on track!
WoooHoo I sank a birdie putt…it keeps me coming back!

OH…Hook the Ball, Slice the Ball, Dribble off the tee…
It’s all a fading memory… A Birdie Sets Me Free!

Never mind the rotten score, It isn’t why I play…
Because I got a birdie putt, This is a PERFECT DAY!!

Joy to the world.  A Hole in One
Sung to the Tune of Joy to The World
lyrics by Patric Miller

Joy to the world…a hole in one!
I can’t believe my eyes!
I kept my left arm straight…
And didn’t lift my head….
And now the drinks on me…
Yes now the drinks on me…
And Now…the Drinks…
Are All On Me!!

Joy to the world it all paid off…
The hours out on the range!!
The endless repetition,
The Blisters and the Back Aches…
And now the drinks on me…
Yes now the drinks on me…
And Now…the Drinks…
Are All On Me!!

A Lady Golfer’s 12 Days of SHCC Golf
Sung to the tune of 12 Days of Christmas

On the **** day of Christmas my true love sent to me:
12 Dozen Pro Vs
11 Quilters Quilting
10 Special Foot Rubs
9 Lady’s Lunches
8 Summer Golf Shirts
7 Stretching Sessions
6 Geese a Layin’
5 Lessons Free
4 Early Times
3 New Woods
2 Colored Socks
A Big Bag Full of Golf Tees

Explanations and Disclaimers

1st Day: A Big Bag Full of Golf Tees

This is the kind of thing that non-golfers or last minute shoppers get for golfers. They don’t realize we get free tees at Shadow Hills. Meh!

2nd Day: 2 Colored Socks
We all know how you like to match colored socks to the rest of your ensemble. But a warning to husbands and significant others…don’t buy these online, as the color and size rarely match the description.

3rd Day: 3 New Woods
Really??? NICE! Who wouldn’t want three new woods? Especially after the first two crappy gifts.

4th Day: 4 Early Tee Times
We all know what that means at SHCC. A nice 9:30 or 10AM tee time, when you aren’t clumped in with a bunch of men intent on playing fast so they can go have breakfast, or stuck behind a lot of slower players in the afternoon.

5th Day:  Five Lessons Free!
And these are NOT from your spousal unit or significant  others, as we know that more relationships have been tested to the limits by one trying to “help improve” the other…especially when “the one” is a high-handicapper himself! These are with a real golf professional!

6th Day: Six Geese a Layin’
This one is dedicated to the Audubon Certification at SHCC. We love our geese. Mostly.

7th Day: Stretching Session
A session with Nick produces results on the course that increase stamina, strength and flexibility. ‘Nuf Said.

8th Day: Eight Summer Golf Shirts
This allows a full rotation of colors and styles without repeating each week. You never where the same thing on Tuesday this way!

9th Day: Nine Lady’s Lunches
This is where the real action happens. Men not allowed. If we were there, there would be nothing for them to talk about. Right?

10th Day – 10 Special Foot Rubs
These are Special…because your spousal unit or significant other will give you a “no strings” foot rub. Just the feet. Get it?

11th Day- Eleven Quilter Quilting
This is just a shout out to the Quilters…who always come through with an amazing quilt to donate to any worthy cause!

12th Day – 12 Dozen Pro Vs
At first, this seems like a bad gift. But, let’s remember that a dozen Pro V1s goes for about $40 a dozen.  So…a DOZEN/Dozen would be about $480 worth of golf balls…that you could sell on EBay, to get the money for you to buy whatever you REALLY wanted for Christmas!
