The BCWGA enjoyed a potluck luncheon in March to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the newly established Big Canoe Women’s Golf Association. Happy birthday again to Pam DePetro and many thanks to Carolynn Witt for the delicious desserts! We encourage and welcome new members all year long to come out and play with us, so hurry and join our group this month as we begin another year of golf. The full
membership fee is $70 and a Social membership is $35 that includes Wednesday afternoon Social Play once a month alternating between ascramble and play your own ball. The Wednesday play provides an opportunity for members to gather on the Veranda following golf to socialize and have “fun.”
Also in March, The BCWGA and the Learning Ladies had a fun Meet and Greet at the Beach Club hosted by Joan Delk, one of Big Canoe’s professional golf instructors. At that get-together, we welcomed the new liaisons for the learning ladies and our group, Carol Corbitt and Pam DePetro.
Opening Day and the General Membership Meeting will be at 9 a.m. on April 3 followed by a special salute in memory of Cheryl Jones at 9:30 a.m. All Big Canoe women golfers are welcome to this salute in Chery’s honor.
Anyone who is interested in signing up to be a Big or Little Sister to help mentor or be mentored, please email Carolyn Witt, at email@example.com, in order to be paired with the same person the first, second and third play days of this month. As a reminder, when signing up for play days, please respond with your choice of playing 9 or 18 holes.
Mark your calendars for the following upcoming April events:
April 10 – Play Day #1
April 17 – Play Day #2
April 24 – Play Day #3
April 26 – Afternoon Social Play Day/Scramble
The BCWGA looks forward to another exciting new year of golf while socializing with old and new friends in our outstanding Big Canoe community.
The BCWGA is a golfing organization with a 40+ year history. The group is open to any woman, aged 21 and over, who is either a property owner or a golf amenity member in good standing at Big Canoe. Members are afforded the opportunity to play nine or eighteen holes of golf in a relaxed atmosphere while having fun and simultaneously working to improve their skill set and handicap. The establishment of a USGA handicap is required of all members.
Activities and events are designed to promote a better understanding of the rules of golf and to improve pace of play. Members work together to boost confidence on the course and encourage socialization with other women of similar skills. Integrity, respect for each other as well as the game of golf, and a firm sense of fellowship are key principles of the BCWGA.
We would also like to invite anyone interested in taking advantage of the best value to learn how to play golf at Big Canoe by signing up for Learning Ladies lessons with Joan Delk, one of Big Canoe’s professional golf instructors.
Ladies of all levels of play are welcome to share the spirit and warmth that exemplifies BCWGA – “Ladies who just want to have fun playing golf.” For up to date information, please visit our website regularly, https://bcgc-bcwga.golfgenius.com.
New members are always welcome, no matter their skill level. The contacts for the group are Carolyn Witt (firstname.lastname@example.org), BCWGA President, Elise McBryde (email@example.com), BCWGA Vice President and Christine Flaherty (firstname.lastname@example.org), BCWGA Treasurer.
