The theme for the member-guest golf event held by the Lake Mohawk Women’s Golf Association was all about “Fun and Games,” on August 24. Lori Healy and Carol Gordon, chairs for the event, created a whimsical day. Golfers and their guests were greeted by bubbles in the air as they drove up.

Golf carts were decorated with the theme in mind. Some of the creative design themes included Candyland, Let’s Make a Deal and Games of Chance. Players also got into the fun with their themed golf attire.

After a hearty breakfast, a shotgun start set the duffers off to a scramble game with lots of ruses along the way. Favors in the carts provided each participant with a cooling towel and glove.

Eighteen holes later, golfers were treated to a lunch of Asian stir fry, sautéed seafood, pasta and salad. The piece de resistance was a martini glass filled with pudding and a brownie decorated to look like dice sitting on top. Cookies made to resemble monkeys hung from the rim of the glass.

A variety of contests were held for course performance as well as creativity. A list of winners for each contest can be found below.

Some of the golf event’s prizes included jumbo games of Connect Four, dominoes, dice and Jenga. Following lunch, more games and awards, Healy led the members and their guests in a game of Trivial Pursuit.
