Lady Putters Keep on Putting Despite the Heat

Peggy McGee

Even with high temperatures and high humidity because of monsoons, every Wednesday morning about 45 ladies show up on the putting green by 7:45 to start putting at 8 a.m. Though many may be getting one or two holes-in-one each week, no one has earned the coveted Quail Pin in the past month for scoring at least five holes-in-one in a single outing. Blame it on the weather!

Frannie Vanselow did get a hole-in-one on the Money Hole in late July and got a $5 reward for her accomplishment.

With the weather cooling and humidity down, this is a great time for newcomers to give the Lady Putters a try. New putters will have the advantage of getting putting tips from the more experienced members without feeling rushed. Before the winter visitors return, putting sessions generally run about 45 to 50 minutes.

Newcomers may try out the Lady Putters twice before having to commit to join. They just need to bring $1, one ball, and a putter to the back patio of the clubhouse between 7:30 and 7:45 a.m. every Wednesday. It’s a great way to make new friends while having fun and being out in the fresh air.
