February 20th was our annual Kick Off Party for the 2019 Season with our opening day Scramble scheduled on March 6th.  Unfortunately, it was cancelled due to the weather.  We did have our “Opening Day” lunch in spite of the bad weather.  April brought our Member-Member Tournament with the Wildflower Cup in May and then Summer Scramble in June.  Taking a break for summer, we resumed Tournaments in September, with the 9 Hole Tournament and Invitational.  October brought the 9 Hole Exchange and our annual Halloween Tournament.  Our Closing Scramble was scheduled in November, but due to weather again, we were forced to cancel, but we did not let that keep us from having lunch.  Our 2019 Year concluded with the Annual Meeting and Holiday Party on December 11. The 2020 Board was introduced, and the Past Presidents were recognized. We presented our members with FLWGA 2019 tote bags.  We were also able to provide gift cards for the Grounds Crew at the golf course.  We were able to have two Member-Guests Events this year that were enjoyed by membership and guests as well as provided lunch after two of our scheduled/cancelled tournaments. We finished our 2019 year with 130 members.

Our season started with our Kick-off Party on February 6th and a membership of 143 players.  The WGA secured their separate storage unit for the year.   The Golf Club changed our play-days from shot-gun to tee-times to accommodate outside play.  The Wild Cup Tournament was won by the “Sunflowers”.  Team shirts were available to the membership to be worn at the 18-hole and 9-hole Exchanges as well as all our local tournaments.  Many revisions and changes were implemented to our software program regarding sign-ups and emails.  The Golf Course Committee reported they are waiting on irrigation reports, inspection of the wells and natural grass areas to comply with City codes.  Several Golf Rules clinics were held during the year.  By vote of the board FLWGA will no longer be participating in Central Texas Women’s Golf Assoc.  We were blessed with Sponsor’s participation again this year with Joe Washburn Realtors being a new sponsor.  An Invitational tournament was held in September with 122 players representing 26 different clubs.  The WGA purchased cell phone chargers for the entire membership and were given out at the Holiday Party along with a number of gift cards.  New Board members were recognized as well as Past Presidents. Gift cards were also purchased for the Ground Keepers.  Due to rain and cold weather several tournaments were canceled.

Our season began with Monday being our playday which was a change made by   the club’s management.  In April, we were moved to Wednesday but with assigned tee times instead of a shotgun start.  The new Local Rule #7 was added based upon the recommendation of the USGA.  Due to new banking requirements, our Financial Controls and Procedures were amended.  Many revisions and changes were implemented on our website. In May, the Sunflowers won the Wildflower Cup.  Our inagural Invitational was played in September with Home Team Pest Control as our new Platinum Sponsor.  Players from 26 clubs were invited filling the 120 spots including our members.   With the growth and changes of our organization, it was necessary to revise and amend our By-Laws.  The membership voted to approve the recommended changes in June.  The Board of Directors decided that the history of our organization should be documented.  Joyce Braun accepted the role of researching all past minutes and produced yearly facts.  With the assistance of members, the History of the FLWGA was written and posted on our website in October. We had an exciting end of season with two members having a “Hole-In-One” splitting the $940 pot.  Congratulations to Ann Sparks and Becky Rice.  Members received Wine Totes, Wine stoppers and a bottle of wine at the Holiday Party.  Extra year end funds were used for a member drawing of gift cards.  Past Presidents were recognized that evening.  A fun year for all!

In February, Marilyn Colon along with her co-leader, Judy Woods fully implemented the FLWGA Website utilizing the Handicap system, Weekly Sign-up as well as many other programs. Thanks to Dianne Dunn, the enrollment in GHIN was discontinued.  It was only through extensive training of Board Members and later our members that this transition was very successful.  In October, we hosted the 9-Hole Exchange. Membership was formally invited to attend all Board Meetings.  It was a full year of golf activities!

 

Business Issue: The Board considered new timelines for the Nominating Committee with the recommendation that the By-Laws be changed in 2017. 

 

Business Issue: The Board considered new ideas for play-days due to the Golf Club’s concerns about speed of play and allowing public access earlier.  These included ideas like tee times and playing on different days.  Though the Board decided on one approach, the membership elected to stay with the current play-day procedures as long as possible.

Software was purchased for the development of our FLWGA Website which began with Marilyn Colon and Judy Woods.  Many of our members were involved in the initial input and trial implementation of the new website.  Our first Handbook with pertinent information including Board names, Committee & Event names, Local Rules and much more was written by Kathy Stillwell.  Applications for Membership Renewal and New Memberships were combined to streamline this process.  Membership renewal was increased to $50/$40.  The Sponsorship/Partnership program was developed by Toni Jenkins and Barbara Pickelman.  Toni, as Sponsorship Director successfully recruited Brandt Travel, Betty McKean, David Meadors and Frisco Travel as participants.  Though the Charity Tournaments had been very successful in prior years, the Board elected  to discontinue this event. The 2014 recipent of the Charity Tournament, City House purchased a van with the donated funds.  The Golf Director increased the number of Rules and Etiquette meetings and added The Eclectic and Member/Guest  as new tournaments. Jenny Blackwood began publishing the President’s Monthly Message to provide important and up-to-date information to the membership.  Judy Litty was instrumental in having our course rerated from the Ladies tee boxes.  In August, the Social Mixer at One 2 One Restaurant was enjoyed by our members and guests. Our Christmas charity supported Hope’s Door.  Since there was not a Hole-in One, the fund carried over to 2016.

Our Local FLWGA Rules were written by Charolotte Ashworth and adopted by the Board.  She also organized informal rules meetings to educate our players.  Handicaps were implemented in all playday activities and were used to determine winners.  The Charity Tournament chaired by Petra Vandergriend raised $13,963 to benefit Children’s Medical Center.  Our records indicate the Scramble and Pool Party were held in September and the Holiday Party in December but does not reference the Kick-Off Party.  The Inaugural Wild Flower Cup was played in November with Bluebonnets winning the match.  Notes reflect that Central Texas Golf Association was started.

Equitable Stroke was implemented this year with a maximum handicap set at 40.  The golf program established record keeping for all players having a “First” Par, Birdie, Eagle and Hole-In-One for year-end awards.

Our organization joined El Dorado, Heritage Ranch and Lantana in the Exchange Program.  The Charity Tournament, chaired by Linda Mason was played in October raising $11,700 for the Susan G. Komen Rally.  In February, the Kick-Off Party was held, the Scramble and Pool Party were organized in September and the Holiday Party was celebrated at the Golf Club in December.  Play-day Scrambles followed by organized Socials were played in March, May, July and November.

The “Chip In” pot was introduced this year with a buy-in of 25 cents.  Money was also collected for three-putts used to plant Bluebonnets on Holes #9 and #18.  Handicaps were not used to determine playday winners.  Putters were measured and marked with tape to institute the “gimmie” program. The first Wednesday of each month found members enjoying meals after golf at the Amenities Center.  The Social Committee prepared the meals charging each member $3.00.  The Inaugural Charity Event raised $8,043 for the Susan G. Komen Rally.

 

The first Play Day Scramble was organized this year.  9-Hole members played an Away Scramble at Stewart Peninsula.  The first Halloween golf play-day used orange balls and special holes.  Activities for the year included the Kick-Off Party, Evening at the Pool, Awards Evening and Holiday Party.

 

Business Issue:  FLWGA considered having different play-days for the 18-Hole players and 9-Hole players due to the number of golfers participating each week.  The board decided to keep the groups together, playing on the same morning.

The clubhouse was located in a trailer on old Hole #2.  Organized play was planned once a week with groups starting on Hole #2 and finishing on Hole #1.  Handicaps were not used to determine playday winners.  Tournaments were not played the first year but there were three organized social gatherings.  The Kick-off Party, Pool Party and Holiday Party were all held at the pool, as Meeting Rooms were not available at that time.  A black golf purse was given to the members at the Holiday Party.  The committees provided food purchased at Costco or Kroger’s.
