When you lip out several putts in a row, you should never think that means that you're putting well. When you're putting well, the only question is what part of the hole it's going to fall in, not if it's going in.

Mn Metro Open Results
Thanks to everyone for participating in the first MN Metro Open on July 19th!  We managed, despite a pandemic, to have a wonderful time on a beautiful day and many members got to meet and golf with some new people. There was a lot of input provided from members on what they would like to see in future opens like adding scramble play. We'll keep those in mind for next year. We want to thank River Oaks for accommodating us in the short time frame we had to pull this together. Here are the prize winners:

Stroke Play Winners:
  • Low Gross:  Emma Johnson with an 85 > 2 rounds of golf at River Oaks complements of River Oaks
  • Low Net:  Mary Setre with a net 76 > 2 rounds of golf at River Oaks complements of River Oaks
Blind Scramble Winners:
These were 4-person groups selected at random.  There was a three-way tie for first. The decision was made to award prizes to all.  First, second and third were based on lowest group score on the most difficult holes, #1 (18) and #2 (2).  Winners as follows:
  • First Place team: Janette Schull / Anita Nelson / Rose Njakara / Kay Rasmussen > LPGA Amateur's Logo-ed Thermal cup  
  • Second Place team: Pauline Whelan / Susan Speetzen / Kymberly Eide / Mary Setre > LPGA Amateur's Logo-ed Divot tool with magnetic marker
  • Third Place Team:  Alice Heath / Laurie Stanek / Jamie Meilhan / Emma Johnson > LPGA Amateur's Logo-ed hat or visor
Bingo Game Winners:
Four winners from the list of players who had not won in stroke play or the Blind Scramble were picked and will receive an LPGA Amateur's logoed hat clip.  The winners were:
  • Trina Chernos, Pat Hegenbarth, Jill Skogheim, Lisa Lally
A big thank you to our Events team, Terry Fraser and Sheila Muller for creating this fun event. Also, thank you to volunteers Laurie Stanek, Angie Christo and Mike Muller for their help.
Coming Soon: Elections
As an all- volunteer organization, it's very important our members step up and serve because our Board makes all the Chapter golf and social events, communications and sponsors possible. 

For our upcoming new year, there will be 3 open positions: President (1 year term), Director of Golf and Director of Marketing (2 year terms). Please consider running for one of these positions. The Board would be happy to give you information regarding these positions. Just email us at:  

Remember: Unless someone steps up to make it happen, nothing happens.
