Welcome to the Southern Nevada Golf Association for Business Women
Club Championship: June 1st & 2nd, 2019
Club Championship will be happening on June 1st and 2nd at Bear’s Best with a 7:00 a.m. shotgun both days. I am attaching the current points list through today showing who is qualified to compete. If you are not already qualified, please see what you need to do to make that happen. Many newer and some other members will not have sufficient opportunities to complete the requirements before June 1 and 2. You are welcome to play for fun on either or both days if there is room.
To be eligible to compete in the Club Championship tournament, a participant must be a member in good standing and have participated in a minimum of ten (10) club events during the calendar year June 1 through May 31. Normally, three of these events must have been attendance at a general membership meeting. Because we have moved up the competition from August to June this year, a proposal to reduce the meeting requirement to two meetings was presented at our General Meeting today since the membership has lost the ability to attend meetings in June and July this year. This proposal was approved. Any member in good standing who does not meet the requirements of attending two meetings due to prolonged illness or work schedule obligations may be allowed to participate at the discretion of the Tournament Chair and Board Members. This request must be in writing sent by email or regular mail to the Tournament Chair.
The tournament will consist of two rounds. Flights will be established from the overall participants based on established handicaps as of May 15. The Club Champion will come from the overall field and will be awarded on low gross for the combined scores for the two days of play. Awards will be given to the club champion, overall low net, and low gross and low net winners in each flight based on the combined scores for the two days of plays. The Overall Net winner will come from the overall participants in the field and will be that person who has the lowest net score for both days of play.
In the event of a tie for Club Champion, a sudden death playoff will determine the winner. In the event of a tie for all other flight gross and net scores, a scorecard playoff, using the USGA method for tiebreakers will be used to determine the winner.
Our awards luncheon will be held after play on Sunday, June 2ndd at Bear’s Best. Our defending champion is Debbie Love.

Jingle Balls: November 27th, 2018
Well gang, we did it again! Another successful Jingle Balls Tournament. Whew!
My heartfelt thanks to all of you who played, contributed, solicited raffle prizes, helped on “work day”, and volunteered yesterday morning to keep things running
smoothly! We have already received many compliments about a well-run event, including the staff at Bear’s Best. They told me we are the easiest and most organized group to work with of all the tournaments they host. This is a tribute to all of you.
Our raffle ticket sales were outstanding!
Grand Prize Raffles $1,025.00
Regular Raffles $2,237.00
Split the Pot sales for our charities were $783.00. Half of this amount went to charities and the other half was split between three people drawn from the pot. One of the winners donated her winnings back to the charities which was very generous. This resulted in a total of $521 going to the charities, plus most of the raffle ticket sales.
After all expenses have been accounted for, I anticipate we will be able to send our two charities, Little Miss Hannah Foundation and Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation, approximately $1,800 each. We will keep you posted on the final amount.
Again, thanks to you for our success!

Loss of our friend, Mary Tucker
It is with a heavy heart filled with sadness that I inform you all that Mary earned her wings to heaven on Wednesday, February 21st, 2018.
As her daughters said, please find solace and peace knowing that she is no longer suffering and in pain. She was a great friend and will be sorely missed.
Rest in peace Mary and remember to shine your light on us once in awhile. We miss you!
