Hello FLWGA Members!
I hope this email finds you and your family well and safe!
Golf in April was a total bust for the FLWGA due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I really appreciate everyone being very patient as we have tried to navigate the best way to move forward with our schedule.
The board met Tuesday, May 5th via ZOOM conference call! Maybe a first? Certainly something new! Although golf has been a bust, we have been working on a few things!
Volunteers are the heart and soul of the FLWGA. Without all of you volunteering to help, we would not have an FLWGA! Linda Mueller has suggested that we Spotlight our volunteers on the website. Our first "Spotlight On" is Erin Garrison! Check it out on our FLWGA website. Thanks to Erin for all that she has done for the FLWGA and thanks to Linda for a great suggestion.
We will periodically be "spot lighting" another volunteer - so many to choose from. If you have an idea of someone that should be spotlighted - write it up and submit to the board at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our play days are back (mostly)! On April 15th, Frisco Lakes Golf Course was opened back up to the public, but under very strict guidelines. Unfortunately, those guidelines prohibited the FLWGA play days from happening. But on May 1st - those guidelines were loosened just a bit!
For now, we will have play days on Wednesday (9 hole and 18 hole) and Saturday (18 hole). Unfortunately for now, our Monday afternoon 9 hole group is not playing. Sign ups for the available play days are now on the FLWGA Member portal.
Please note - we have a limited number of tee times - and they are filling up fast!. If you sign up and then are unable to play, please cancel as soon as possible so that another golfer may have your spot. If you want to sign up, but sign up is closed, be sure to notify the coordinator to put you on a waiting list.
Wildflower Tournament and Social - Wednesday, May 13th - this may be rescheduled in the fall.
18 Hole Exchange at Westridge Golf Course - Monday, May 18th - has been cancelled.
Social Happy Hour - Wednesday, June 3rd - has been cancelled.
Summer Scramble - Wednesday, June 10th - this may be rescheduled in the fall.
Between the rainy weather and the COVID-19 virus, we haven't had a tournament yet this year! Rosemary is still very positive that we can re-schedule them all for the fall, but that will completely depend upon the environment we are in. The board all agrees that the social aspect of lunch / prizes after the tournaments are a key part of having these tournaments, so as long as we are unable to do that, we will continue to cancel the tournaments and replace with play days.
The next FLWGA Board meeting is Tuesday, June 2nd, 9 am - Westside Village Center, Room 1 or via ZOOM conference. Everyone is always welcome to attend - location / ZOOM information will be posted on the FLWGA website a few days before.
If you have any questions or suggestions, drop us a line at email@example.com.
Hope to see everyone soon on the golf course!
