The 2018 Season was one filled with fun, new faces and changes.  

Special mentions for the extra effort! President Biddy Pyle set the tone by announcing "We're going to have FUN this year!", Vice President Ellen Shelley organized Play Days at neighboring courses when Scotsdale closed due to weather-related damage.  Sue Jacobson led the team introducing a new system for Sign Up, Pairings, Scoring & Results for the Club. Patty Walker visited many local businesses and secured a record number of sponsors that may each play day just a little more fun!  

Thanks to everyone who volunteered to help lead our club!

It was a beautiful day and the rain held off. Thanks to the WGC Board for providing the array of breakfast finger food, fruit and coffee. Everyone dug in! The tournament was very well attended with 100 participants. Golf was difficult when you weren't in the fairway, otherwise the golf course was in excellent condition. Thanks to Ruth Hatcher for driving around and keeping everyone on track. Lunch after golf, provided by the Country Club, was a hit with everyone. A special thanks to Vicki Styles and her helpers, the CC Restaurant staff and the golf office staff for making this tournament such a success.

The first date to use the process is August 30, 2018.  The first 'Tournament' available for sign-up is 9/20/2018. Access the new process through the WGC website or on the Golfsoftware app on your smartphone.
