Lake Fairways Ladies Golf League
The ladies 18-hole golf league held their annual Christmas Luncheon on December 7th, the first time in 3 years due to Covid. The luncheon is usually a catered affair at a cost of $15 each. With all the hardships of others, due to the hurricane, the ladies opted to still gather for their annual lunch but do a potluck lunch instead. They still paid the $15 and raised $660.00. They purchased 4 bicycles for some older children and a couple toys to donate to the CERT toy drive.

Lake Fairways 18 Hole Ladies League
2022-2023 Ladies Golf Season Has Begun! Membership Will Soon Grow.
Well ladies, at the time of this writing, the first Wednesday Golf League play has occurred. Ten members are registered in our league. We know that our numbers will grow as the fall approaches. The summer heat played a role in our debut round. However, our friends prevailed and played. As you’ve heard from Dede, there has also been play this summer and early fall with several members from the Pine Lakes Ladies League. The shootout qualifier round is September 21st with our first shootout on September 29th. That feels great, doesn’t it? Not much else to share now, but as we all start arriving, joining and start playing, while also beginning to be part of our activities, I’ll report more good stories. Until then, my friends, be well.

2022-2023 Ladies Golf Season Begins!
Well ladies, at the time of this writing, we are all looking forward to the start of the 2022-2023 Ladies Lake Fairways Golf Season. We know that our numbers will grow as the fall approaches. I think we can anticipate a few new members too, which is just terrific. So as the fall migration approaches, our thanks to those faithful league members who endured the summer heat, played and held our league together. I also expect that we’re all looking forward to seeing and playing on the course with its improvements captured for us by Dede Martin. Thanks Dede. We expect that playing in the summer required a sense of humor. As they say…. “Keep your sense of humor. There’s enough stress in the rest of your life not to let bad shots ruin a game you’re supposed to enjoy.” - Amy Alcott
SEA GOLF: This column feature is based on a Floridian's attitude toward the game we all love. Apparently, saying “Swing Easy” is good luck, so this new “Advice column...aka SEA GOLF is designed to capture some “good luck advice” or story that we can all appreciate. This month, as we begin the season, success is the theme. Our President, Annie Souza has noted for SEA GOLF Advice: “Let’s make this a successful season. Let’s get back to having fun and enjoying each other’s company while we play and improve our golf game.” So, as we plan for this upcoming season, here’s a thought to share for our contemplation: “Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.” - Napoleon Hill
In future articles, we’ll capture plans for: golf games, annual festivities, our annual charitable event and its theme. Looking forward to being with each of you.
One parting thought: “Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots–but you have you have to play the ball where it lies.” -Bobby Jones. See you all soon!
