Our Own Krissy Carman Wins the 35th U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur Championship!
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!

Shadow Hills Senior Men “Thank You” Staff Event
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
