Ladies Golf News ~ August 2021

July started with the Flag Day gadget.  When players exhausted their handicap strokes, they planted their flag.  Linda Boyle made it into the hole on 18.  JoAn Treskovich ended her game 3” from the 18th hole.

The 9-holers played the same game.  Barbara Sloan and Ann Aungier ran out strokes at the same time on the 17th green.

The Queen Bee ringer tournament was played on July 13 and 20.  Stephanie Trozzo, with a net score of 60, is the new reigning Queen Bee. Thanks to JoAn Treskovich, last year’s Queen Bee for organizing the lunch after the second round.

The Lady Bug tournament for 9-holers was played on July 13 and 15.  Barbara Sloan successfully defended her title with a net 38.

The Pro Shop selected the teams for the Pink Lady gadget on July 27.  Each group was given two pink balls to play with.  Each group had the option not to use the Pink Lady on desired hole(s).  The group with the highest score with the pink balls won. 

1st Place: Darlene Elliott, Enis Cassill, Robin Guinta, Betty Rosa – 85

2nd Place: Cindy Soccio, Jan Litrun, Sherry O’Halloran – 76

The 9-holers played for low gross, with holes #1, #5, and #9 automatically reverting to par.

Barbara Sloan won with a score of 38.

Friend’s Day will take place on August 17, hosted by Betty Rosa and Karen Thompson.  Association members may bring up to three friends.  Members will be responsible for the cart fees for their guests and lunch following play.

The premier event in August is the Ladies Classic, hosted by Enis Cassill.  The tournament is restricted to members of the Ladies Golf Association.  18-holers and 9-holers are eligible to win in their respective groups.

August 31 will be a new Member-Member event with two person teams chosen by the Pro Shop.

Holes 1-6 is best ball of two, Holes 7-12 will be alternative shot. Holes 13-18 is a scramble

From the Pro ~ August 2021

Dear Members,

In my last newsletter, I mentioned after the 4th of July, time flies by and it sure has. It was a very busy July, and it shows with rounds being 2,000 more year to date than 2020.

In the month of July, we partied with our Margaritaville themed Member-Member, had a Christmas in July with our Bucks & Does, crowned our Queen Bee/Lady Bug and named a Senior Club Champion.

August will be filled with many more events and hopefully just as good of weather as we had for July! We can’t wait to glow up the course for our Family Glow Golf, mysteriously hold our Bucks & Does Mystery Night and run our last Intermediate Night of the year, our Drink Around the World Invitational.

Our cart ruling information is posted below but we have seen many instances of improper cart traffic and/or placement on the course. Please be aware the cart ruling for the day and when you drive to the green, drive your golf cart back to the path/yellow markings and have all (4) wheels on the path.

A few examples of improper driving are: The right side of #6, behind the green on #9, to the left side on #11 or anywhere other than the path on #17.

As always, if you have any questions from what is listed above or below, please call the Golf Shop or email me. We hope to see you out on the course!

August Pro News

From the Pro July 2021

Dear Members,

It is hard to believe that the Fourth of July is right around the corner and sadly in my years as a Golf Professional, once this date comes around, summer flies by even faster. June was a pack filled month, kicking off with our Men’s Invitational, crowing a King and Queens, A Parent-Child event to remember and our Junior Camp that was filled with joy of 18 juniors.

Do not think we’re slowing down just yet; July will be filled with many more events and hopefully just as good as weather as we had for June! See below for details.

As always, if you have any questions from what is listed below, please call the Golf Shop or email me. We hope to see you out on the course!

Pickleball Open

From the Board of Directors:

To Ligonier Country Club Members:

As you may have noticed, our new pickleball courts are open and ready for play. Here are some guidelines.

All Ligonier Country Club members are encouraged to use the courts at any time during the day or early evening. We intend to have “open play” on both courts each day from 10:00 am to 12:00 and 4:00 to 7:00 pm. This will be for all levels of play. Reservations are not needed – just show up with your friends and guests and enjoy the competition and comradery. Courts may be reserved for a private group at any other time. Call the pro shop to reserve a court for one or two hours.

Guests of LCC members are welcomed. They must be accompanied by a member.

Typical pickleball attire (tees, athletic shorts, and sneakers) is acceptable. However, if using any of our other facilities, the LCC dress code is still in effect, and a change of clothes will be required. Members will be responsible for notifying their guests of our dress code policy.

For beginners, we will be having an instruction event in the very near future. Until then, we have copies of the basic rules of pickleball in the pro shop. Stop by and pick up a copy. Also, the pro shop will have a limited supply of paddles and balls available for use. Give it a try!

Ligonier Country Club is trying very hard to add benefit to our membership. Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the country and is a sport that can be enjoyed by everyone. So come out and learn the game and give it a try.
