Girls Golf

Thank_you Card IconThank you

We would like to say thank you to a couple of ladies golf organizations.

The Women's Golf Association of Northern California gave us a grant to get new golf bags for the girls golf team. Actually there has NEVER been golf bags designated for the girls golf team. So... Thank you.

And the Pacific Women's Golf Association gave us a grant to get a new set of starter clubs for the team.

Coaches Murray and Smiley

Tired of paying for your shirt and hat? Range balls? Practice sessions? 

Here is a very cool fundraiser for us.

We will be doing parking at the EXPO at Haggin Oaks

Saturday April XX, 2019 at 7am - 12noon

Sunday April XX, 2019 at 7am - 12noon

You are all expected to come and help with this, if you remember that we said so at the beginning of the season, to put into the bank so we don't have to pay for range balls, practice sessions, etc.

Golf_Attire Card IconGolf Attire

This year you will be providing your own bottom part of your uniform. We will be providing the top and the hat.

For the bottoms. . . you may wear black skorts, black shorts that reach mid thigh while standing up straight, or black slacks. At no time will anything else be acceptable (NO leggings at all!!!)

You do NOT have to get them at a golf course. In fact I would suggest to you NOT to as they are quite pricey.

Your team captains have told me that they are available at Target for a much more reasonable price.
