Now is a good time to join the Lady Putters

Peggy McGee
“Summer time and the living is easy” It’s also a great time to join the Lady Putters and get a feel for how they play. The crowds are smaller since the winter residents have gone to cooler climes and even some of the year-round residents shy away during the hottest months. To avoid the intense heat that summer sometimes brings, the Lady Putters start putting at 8:30 a.m. rather than 10:00 a.m. as they do during the winter and early spring. Check-in time is 8:00 a.m.
The group’s by-laws allow interested women, both renters and owners, to try out the Putters twice before making a commitment by paying the $15 annual dues. There is a $1 weekly greens fee to putt. Part of this money is returned in the form of a gift card for those who putt the minimum number of times in a six-week period and who attend the brunches or luncheons. Optional visors, hats, shirts and Putters name tags are available for purchase.
In order to protect the putting greens, only rubber soled shoes should be worn. Tank tops, short shorts, athletic shorts and blue denim are not considered acceptable attire. With the heat, all ladies are encouraged to bring a bottle of water with them. Bottles can be refilled from the containers in the practice range area.
