Re-Release of Hawk an extension of Audubon Commitment


photo credits – S J HUNNICUTT
Here is a picture of the Rough-legged hawk that was released Oct 18.  The bird had been in the care of the Raptor Center since last December with a broken leg.  These hawks summer in Alaska and winter here in the valley.  The timing of the release was both upon a fully-healed bird, as well as the fact that these birds are now appearing in the valley.While the bird was not a “native to Shadow Hills,” she is a welcome addition to birds and wildlife found here, and a testament to the trust the local Raptor Center has in our commitment.

GREAT JOB TO ALL!! Our team “represented” Shadow Hills magnificently!! 

SHCC Youth Camp and Youth League a Huge Success!

July 17th -19th, Shadow Hills was the “epicenter of the future of golf” with another huge turnout for the Youth Camp!  Almost 80 of the finest future golfers turned out for the three day camp, that featured instruction, competition and loads of fun!

In addition, the PGA Golf League, which features more than 30 SHCC youth golfers, is concluding their competitive season, with a list of SHCC players being selected as “All Stars.”

This from our resident teaching pro, Pat Fitzsimons:

The PGA Junior Golf League regular season came to a close Saturday July 22nd after an eight week schedule.  Shadow Hills presented 31 golfers forming three teams and each team played 7 matches against Eugene CC., RiverRidge, and Laurelwood as well as each other.  Shadow Hills team 2 tied for the League championship with a 6-1 won- lost record.

A ten player all star team now moves into regional competition on August 6th in Corvallis at Trystying Tree.  Shadow Hills will field four All Stars of the team; Cal Potter from team 1, Brock Nelson and Tyler Mikel from team 2 and Carter Schmidt from team 3 were chosen to represent the Greater Eugene League.  Congratulations to all our young golfers.  Much improvement and maturity was gained by all.

An awards barbecue will close out the regular season this Saturday July 29th at RiverRidge.

As the big member tournaments begin to round off the golf season at Shadow Hills, there is time to seek a tune-up for the Men’s and Women’s Invitationals before football, fall and cooler weather prevail.   It has been a very pleasant experience in the company of a truly great staff at this fine country club and I thank all for making it so!

Raptor Center Visitation Awes and Educates


Audience Rapt with the Raptors
by Betsy Ovitt 
More than 60 members and staff with their kids and grandkids enjoyed an hour show with the Cascades Raptor Center on July 26.  The stars of the show were Tino, a Great Hormed Owl and Taka, a Swainson’s Hawk.  The  birds brought along Zach and Laura, their human coaches, who entertained and educated us about raptors in Oregon and specifically about them.
We learned that if we had eyes comparable to an owl’s they would be the size of our fists.  Since owls can’t move their eyes, they can turn their heads 270 degrees!  The reason they are raptors is that they grab their prey with their talons and that talent distinguishes them from other birds.
We got to see artifacts like owl and hawk wings and Osprey talons.   All in all, it was a good time.
Thanks goes to the Audubon Club for making this happen.
