The winter weather is finally behind us and the golfers from the Graeagle Meadows Golf Course Men’s and Women’s clubs are on the course in full force.
There have been several very nice golf tournaments in the last month to report on. The annual Men’s Golf Invitational, which allows the club to help some needy originations, saw a good turnout for these tough economic times. Then two nice smaller events occurred: one by the Women’s Club — the Mini Ha-Ha — and one by the Men’s Club — the Two-Man Scramble & Ladies’ Night.
Most recently the Women’s Golf Invitational was followed by a small event — the Jack & Gill tournament. There are always new winners in every tournament; but the real winners are everybody who shows up and plays.
The season is still young and there are many more golf events scheduled for the year, so grab your clubs, check the bulletin boards at the clubhouse and fill out an entry form to enter the next available tournament.
Hope to see you at the next golf tournament.
