Shadow Hills women gathered for our Annual Meeting & Awards Lunch on Wednesday, November 7th. We met the 2018 Women’s Board of Directors, elected the 2019 Officers, and recognized all of this year’s award winners.
Over 50 different awards were presented. Congratulations to all of the award winners!
It is a rare thing when someone quietly, though persistently works in their own way to create change in their world. So often “those who serve,” are motivated by personal gain, or to fulfill some personal agenda. So it is very rare indeed, that a person who has worked tirelessly and selflessly for decades, should be singled out as “The Best” at something, for the simple reason that they work so hard not to call attention to their actions, or brush praise away with a “Happy to do it!” smile.
However, on October 22nd at the OGA annual meeting, recognition was due and given to our own Steve Mason, with his receipt of the “Member of the Year” award. How special is this award? The numbers speak for themselves, as the The OGA represents 170 clubs and 41,000 members.
I wrote about Steve in an article on ShadowHillsExtra.com more than three years ago. And since then, Steve has continued to be “the hub” for an amazing list of club-enhancing actions that have become part of the fabric of Shadow Hills.
He has served on the Membership Committee, is currently co-chair of the Handicap Committee, and is notoriously the “Ticket Guy” for almost any Pac-12 event, providing great deals on all sorts of sports and concert events “in his spare time.”
But, most of us know Steve as “The Commish” of the ever-popular and amazingly fun, Shadow Hills Senior Men’s group. This “Fed-Ex Tour” style of events, with accumulated points being awarded to a leaderboard, ultimately results in the awarding of the “Mason Cup” for the overall winner. However, adding to this, is a huge array of social events, golf weekends, annual trips, and a wide range of community-building fun, that are all made possible by Steve’s generosity of time, and creative spirit.

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!

With a change in format this year, the Club Championships were compressed into a stroke-play competition that allowed some new faces, as well as some familiar, to take honors in this year’s Shadow Hills Country Club Championship competition.
In the Championship Division, Tim Calhoun (148) took Low Gross honors, with Jeff Croissant claiming Low Net (144). Senior Division winner was Rob Johnson for low Gross (150) and Bill Lang was the Low Net winner (136).
