Women’s Club Holiday & Charity Luncheon
Sue GraVette, Chair
Once again the Holiday luncheon on December 7th was a huge success. From the wonderful food, excellent service, many volunteers and interactive entertainment to the rewards for our beneficiary, Courageous Kids, the staff and 106 members and guests out did themselves.
There were several ways to give to the charity and, as usual, guests were very generous. You could buy a bottle of wine from the wine grab table thanks to those many members who donated wine. You could take a chance via raffle tickets for two quilts and two wall hangings donated by Shadow Hill’s own creative and talented Club House Quilters, or you could just place a donation in a tabletop box. Courageous Kids, a grief support program for youth, does not charge for their services, but depend solely on grants and donations. They were presented with a gift of $2866 from this event.
Patric Miller stepped up once again to provide entertainment. Not only did he lead a sing-a-long of some golf related Christmas tunes, but he also starred in a Radio Play called An Unlikely Foursome, which he wrote. A few good sports helped out with that: Melinda Rausch, Suzi Creech, Nancy Moore and me.
Corrie Gelardi and Ryan McDonnell provided complimentary wine and holiday spirits tasting. Hearts for Hospice for set up a little shopping corner. The sale of their treasures brought nearly $900 to that charity.
It wouldn’t have happened without a great committee. Thank you Lori Reynolds, Amy Bennett, Shawn Bokn, Jeri Kessler, Sharon Bowers, Connie Green and Nancy Moore.

It is with a great sense of gratitude that the SHCC Women’s Club stages an annual “Employee Appreciation” party at the end of the season. This year’s party was held on Monday, Sept 20th, and the weather cooperated to make it a fun and rewarding event for all all who attended.
There were games of skill, games for fun, prize drawings and loads of food and beverages, with two lucky employees winning the “grand prizes” of $100 cash each!
The Women’s Club would like to thank all who donated to the prizes, as well as those who volunteered to help stage the event. Our employees work hard to keep the members happy, and the course and facility looking great all year. This is a small token of our gratitude for their efforts!

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)

Wednesday, August 17 – Daily Play – Olympic Gold
by Sue GraVette
This is the opening day of Women’s Golf at the 2016 Summer Olympics and we have a day planned honoring those women participating. This is the first time golf is included as an Olympic event.
But wait. It isn’t the first time. Flash back to the 1900 Paris when women were first included in the Olympics. Margaret Abbott from the USA was in Paris with her mother studying art. They both entered a nine-hole golf event that they believed to be the Ladies’ Championship of Paris. Margaret won with a score of 47 and her mother came in seventh.
It wasn’t until after Margaret’s death that it came to light that she was, in fact, the USA’s first female Olympic Champion.
This year golf will be included at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro for the first time since 1904 when the United States and Canada were the only two competing countries. It’s likely to be quite a spectacle, as many of the world’s best players (men and women) will battle it out for gold, silver and bronze over 72-holes of stroke play.
For all the questions being asked around golf’s inclusion in the Olympics, there is no question it is vital to golf’s growth. Countries without strong golfing traditions are suddenly pouring money into player development. It will be fun to watch!

Someone once said that Life is too short NOT to play from the Tips. So 18 of us did it again. Annika Day 2016 was a great time for laughing, crying, begging and relief when our drives went past the Red Tees. We had two women tie for Low Gross….Carla Glasgow and Carolyn Townsend. Carolyn was also the Low Net winner.
Many thanks to Ryan and the grounds crew for setting up the course, Gary and his staff in the Pro Shop, and Melinda and Chef Diana for the fabulous lunch. This is our Annika Day Swan Song and we are going out with grace, joy, and appreciation.
