Jim Abrahamson advanced out of a pack of highly competitive, highly skilled (but over the hill) group of 45 Shadow Hills Senior Men golfers and won the prestigious 2019 Shadow Hills Senior Men’s Mason Cup on Friday September 6th. The 11th annual Shadow Hills Senior Men’s tour ended with the two day finals and a dramatic finish by Jim!
He had two excellent rounds of 76 and 74 gross for a two day total of 150 and 82 Stableford points (10 under par net) to finish 2nd place in the Finals and earn enough SHSM points to jump all the way from 8th place entering the final event to claim 1st place!

Christmas came early for a “full to capacity” crowd during the annual Shadow Hills Kids’s Christmas Party. A sumptuous “Breakfast for Dinner” meal was served, with a huge variety of kid activities, games and holiday cheer.
But, as usual, the highlight of the evening was a visit from Santa Claus, and the chance for the kids to let the Jolly Old Elf know what they wanted for Christmas. Each child received a special gift along with their chance on Santa’s knee!

In what has turned out to be the most popular golf/social event for 2018, the Luau had more than 240 participants this year! The best part of the Crazy 8 scramble format, is that it brings together loads of couples who may not play together regularly, for an evening of fun, loose competition, and unforeseen results!

It has been another amazing year for youth golf at Shadow Hills Country Club!
The SHCC Youth Camp had a record number of participants at 102 young golfers with a wide range of ages and experience. The three day camp ran from July 16th – 18th, with every player working on a variety of skills and shots, and playing a “round” on a course set up in the driving range.
Every Participant was awarded their choice of stuffed animal head covers, and from all reports there was loads of improvement at all levels of golfers.
The family atmosphere was evident, with a huge “gallery” of parents and friends gathering to watch the fun. Shadow Hills CC truly lived up to it’s motto of a “Family Resort, Just Minutes from Home,” as a whole new generation of excited golfers was launched.
The final day culminated in a huge pool party (the pool combined with record heat has never been so full) that was the perfect end for intense but fun instruction, while making loads of new friends.
Our Shadow Hills Junior PGA Team had another undefeated year, with a record of 5-0 and the district championship crown.
