Rules clinics are also available to all ladies and will be run by Heather Risk, Assistant Golf Professional. These clinics will be scheduled throughout the year, dates to be announced.
As President of the OCCWGA, Donna would like to welcome two new members in the last year: Allene Richlie and Debbie Garrison. Finally, she would like to remind all ladies of an important goal for this year – to create unity amongst all women golfers. Regardless of skill level, we share a common bond of the love of golf. Have fun, and help to make it fun for others!
