After days of unrelenting rain, the weather broke open into a gorgeous Fall day, with blue skies, moderate temperatures and some low scores, due to soft, receptive greens.
A record turnout showed up for the final “game of the day,” with Pride, Pro Shop Credit, and Thanksgiving Turkeys on the line.
In the end, a super low 63 for Gross, and a 4-way tie for Net at 55, ended up being the deciding factor for victory.
And when it came to a “KP for a Turkey,” one player hit a bullseye with a HOLE IN ONE, that kept any other contenders from “claiming fowl” on Hole #4. Great job, Scott Hoffine!

We had a full field of 128 golfers for our 43rd Annual Shadow Hills Women’s Tournament. The players represented 35 difference golf clubs from four states. The four flights were divided into two team divisions – A/B players and C/D. We also had long drives, kp’s, closest to the line, etc., so everyone had a chance for the many pay outs presented at the luncheons.
It was another successful year thanks to the Invitational Committee and the many Shadow Hills employees that enriched the experience for our guests.
Overall winners: Low Gross of the Field- Leilani Norman (72/74), Low Net of the Field- Leslie Misensol (68/69) and Low Gross Super Senior- Nettie Morrison (77/84)

The picture above is an actual image from the Glow Ball Scramble played on the evening of October 2nd. It is an accurate portrayal of how difficult it is to see the ball at address, but in no way reflects (because it is so dark) the fun of watching the ball after impact, as it goes in the general direction intended, or climbs a tree (looking much like a pinball) or falls into a water hazard, where it glows mockingly out of reach. The circles you see are glow-stick necklaces, required so that those who were in carts, knew where to dodge while maneuvering the fairway (and occasional sand trap).
Yes. This was my first attempt at glow-balling, and I have to admit that it was something I will not likely miss in the future. There is nothing more humbling than realizing just how poor your depth perception really is, as you tunnel a driver deeply into the turf on your first swing (don’t worry Randy, we sanded the trench). By the third hole, I had a better sense of swing, making my best effort to “be the ball” while wearing a cowboy outfit with a large, rigid cowboy hat affixed to my head, (did I mention it was a Halloween theme?). I surprised everyone with a couple of good shots that were at least as good as I could produce in the light of day, then watching my putts streak by the cup, or lip out (did I see sparks?) bringing me back to the reality of my nocturnal skill level.
Our team placed well out of the money…but there were some AMAZING (I hesitate to use the word “unbelievable”) scores posted! What a great way to cap one of the most memorable golf seasons in recent years! We will not miss this event next year, and have set up a putting green in the laundry room, where we can practice with the lights out. We shall be redeemed!

Two recent events brought out another huge contingent of Shadow Hills golfers, with an equally wide range of winners on the leaderboards.
The Luau had a record turnout this year, with many teams stacked to “Crazy 10” levels to accommodate the long wiat list. The weather, which was threatening some of the first rain in months, held off to provide clear, and temperate climes that made the event fun, without a trace of the blistering heat that had proceeded the event during the week.
Our Folds of Honor special game of the day on Labor Day, had a large turnout, with the added bonus of honoring those who have served our nation. A wide range of prizes were awarded, even though nobody was took home the $10,000 hole-in-one prize.
