President Pat Dermody called the meeting to order. The new slate of officers was introduced, Leslie Plifka-Vice President, Carol Kozy-Treasurer, Ester Kashkin- Secretary. Lynne Kanofsky will be 18-hole Chair and Nina Booth will be 9-hole Chair. Joe Fulco, the new General Manager, addressed the group and relayed the exciting plans for the season. After the meeting, golf professional Steve Demmer set the golfers off for a shotgun start scramble format under a glorious, sunny sky.
The ladies locker room has undergone a major transformation. Under the decorating direction and suggestion of Julie Killen, Dana Nolan, Nina Booth and Darlene Randazzo, the space now has a bright, updated look. They also added their design touches to other elements of the clubhouse.
The Margarita League, a social/golf lesson on Wednesday afternoons for new golfers has been well received and many are joining the 9-holers group. Both 18 and 9-hole women golfers will be playing on Wednesday mornings.
Barbara Wortmann and Ester Kashkin, Chairs for the Ladies Member-Guest Golf and Social, described their creative ideas for the June 25 event.
