Upcoming May Golf Outing

Due to closure of the Pines Course for renovations until September, we have decided to try the Oriole Golf Course as an alternate the last Saturday of this month.

Based on membership feedback, Justine will decide to remain at Oriole or alternate between Pompano Palms and Oriole GC. See this LINK for directions to Oriole.

We encourage all our members to play golf whenever possible.

BUT. . . WHAT IF YOU NEED TO CANCEL ?!!?

When you sign up with a weekend/weekday golf captain, you are committing to show up and play!  Our golf captains do a superb job of arranging the pairings. It's time-consuming to rearrange tee times and notify the golf course of any changes.
Please notify your golf captain at least 24 hrs if you must cancel.

We value our relationship with the golf courses! 
 We want to keep our Chapter in good graces with all golf course management.

MEMBER CELEBRATION IN VEGAS

Two of our chapter leaders, Tracy Nessl and Julie Healy, attended the Member Celebration in Las Vegas earlier this month. They enjoyed the opportunity to learn from Keynote speakers, vendors, and leaders from other chapters.

Attendance was just under 100. The vendor marketplace consisted of five vendors, two of which offered golf-related sports/training equipment and exercise routines,

The Keynote speaker, Debbie O'Connell was fantastic and spoke about "How to Maximize Your Greatness". She is a motivational speaker, life coach, and LPGA's 50 Best Teachers. You can read more about her at https://debbie-oconnell.com/about-debbie/
She resides part-time in Stuart and would love to speak to our chapter.

They also heard from golf and fitness experts, swing training products, and programs such as Orange Whip. Our leaders even found time to enjoy golf and a little gambling!!
