December 2017

What a super Shamble and "Silver Bells" Christmas luncheon we had on December 5th! The weather started off a little chilly, perfect for our yummy breakfast of homemade muffins, (thank you Sharon English!), Cuties (thanks to Veronica Knippler!) coffee, and a "wee" shot of Baileys or Kalua to warm us - a perfect start to the day!

Lots of fun during the Shamble, with challenges galore, and many laughs along the way! Some spectacular golf, some dreadful shots - but we can all agree that we were in excellent company and good spirits throughout!

The luncheon was delicious, the table decorations delicate and gorgeous, (thank you, wonderful Jan Okun!) the members' gifts perfect! So much work goes into to making such an event so easy for us to enjoy. Huge thanks to Sharon English, Linda Reagan, Jan Okun, Karen Yoshihara, Veronica Knippler, Linda Healion and Charbe Benvenuto, for everything they did to make the luncheon and the Shamble so wonderful for us!

A big thanks to Vi McMahon for updating and printing the Members Booklet, and having it available for us at the Luncheon. And thank you to Kathy Clark, our superwoman of 2017! Not only did she head up the Invitational, but she took ownership of our cabinet photos and plaques, the event photographs, the membership name printing on all our envelopes, books and bag tags throughout the year, and was a wonderful support to all! People like Kathy do NOT grow on trees - how lucky we are to have her!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all, and let's plan on a wonderful 2018!



October 2017 - SCWGC President's Cup

Congratulations to Linda Healion, our 2017 President's Cup Champion! This was a hard fought, 4-day event, and Linda played magnificently! Congratulations too, to our runner up, Stacie Howren, for giving her a run for her money!

Our two Consolation Bracket competitors were very competitive too, and congratulations to Sonia Shalhub for her victory over Vi McMahon!



The SCWGC Invitational, "Fairways by the Sea"
September 26th, 2017

What an incredible day! Such efficiency and enthusiasm of our wonderful San Clemente women. The ladies came from everywhere to be greeted with smiles and a well-oiled "Bag Tag/Cart" team, headed up by Linda Healion. Our very own Vi said, "I've been doing this for years and this was the best run beginning to an Invitational that I have ever experienced." The smiles continued with the Registration team, headed up by Lucy. Great job.

Veronica and Mary conducted their Raffle Ticket sales fast and efficiently, using the "button method". Our guests were quite impressed. Bet you'll be seeing that idea copied! The continental breakfast- a feast - was excellent, as always. Thank you, one and all, for your contributions and participation. Dawn, you are, hands down, the best! Thanks to Jamey for bartending. The ladies loved it!

Did your group make comments regarding the décor on the golf course? Mine did. Kate and Betsy, you're hired! Hobbsie, you are the "bom.com" as Sponsorship Chair. She was Guardian of our signs (never shall they disappear again). Our Jell-O Jelly Fish shots were a huge success, with Debbie's help. Oh, not that she drank any of them!!

Beautiful day in San Clemente for our golf outing. Ladies got to enjoy the "Fairways by the Sea" and understand why we have "Pride of the Pacific".

How about those centerpieces?!! The tables for our luncheon looked awesome. Thank you, Jan, for your creativity and talent. The ladies scooped up our tee prizes and even asked if they could have more than one. Great job, Marianne. Know you spent a lot of time on them.

Hope every one of you and your guests had to go poddy at least once. "Bathroom Décor by Vickie" is the ultimate. Thank you, my friend.

I, for one, was so proud to be a part of the Raffle Reef drawing. With Karen's insightfulness in creating an awesome reef, her organization skills, and Marianne narrating, it was so much fun. A big thank you to Karen Yoshihara and Carol Duda for their help with the payouts for the winners. Made a lot of women happy yesterday!

Sharon English, I would personally like to thank for her cooperation as Treasurer. The end of this big of an event can be a headache to the Chairperson. You relieved me of that.

Thank you to Wedgewood, the Men's Club, the Pro Shop, the photographers, and the Superintendent of the Course, and of course, to all who participated! Please CLICK HERE to see the photos!
