Women’s Division Message
I am wearing a pair of rose coloured glasses to write you a message on behalf of the Women’s Division and the 2021 season. Although we cannot predict what lies ahead, the Women’s executive and monthly hosts have the 2021 season’s special events, tournaments and weekly Tuesday schedule lined up. As always, the Women’s executive encourages female golfers of all levels to come out on Tuesdays to play a round of 18 holes, respecting the rules, developing and improving handicaps and meeting new golf buddies who equally enjoy the game of golf.

TOP 10 REASONS YOUR JUNIOR SHOULD PLAY GOLF
- Enjoy the outdoors:Young people should play golf because it is an opportunity to spend a few hours in the fresh air. While playing golf, kids and teens can experience all types of animals and plants.
.9. Develop lifelong friendships: You never know who you will meet on a golf course and interaction with others allow kids to develop social skills.
- Practice personal responsibility: Sometimes the ball doesn’t always bounce your way, but regardless of the outcome, there is no blaming your teammates for what happens.
- Have a safe place to play:The golf course is a safe place and facilitates mentoring relationships in a safe environment. Even in the Covid-19 world.
- Manage emotions:Golf closely parallels real life as one experiences the highs and lows of the game. This range of experience from birdies to triple bogeys rewards a young person’s ability to keep each shot in perspective, manage one’s emotions, maintain a positive outlook and focus on the shot at hand.
- Appreciate diversity:Golf is a game that can be played for a lifetime by anyone regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or skill level.
- Prepare for life:Golf is a sport that helps prepare kids and teens for careers in business and other professional arenas.
- Learn etiquette:Young people should play golf because it is based on characteristics that are missing in our society. Golf places an emphasis on etiquette. In golf there is no judge or referee; instead, players govern themselves and fellow competitors.
- Spend time with family:Golf is a game that encourages family participation.
1B. EXCERSISE: Golf is a sport that helps young and old people get off that couch. When you play golf, walking the golf course and carrying your bag, a 150-pound person burns 350 calories and walks more than 10,000 steps.
1A. IT’S FUN: What can be more fun than being at the golf course?
