What a great turn out for the 2023 Jingle Bell Open at
Cypress Woods Golf and Country Club.
It was great to see so many new members participate in this annual FUN event.
We had 100+ players participating this year, trying their luck putting with a Candy Cane, hitting a tee shot with a baseball bat or tennis racket, trying to hit the same club from tee to green, trying their luck hitting the tee shot with oven mitts on or making Eagles or Birdies with Santa's Helper hitting the approach shot.
In the Net Division scores were very close & a few required score card playoffs:
We paid out 8 places, these are your top 3 winners
1st place – Paula Congiu, Vickie McGregor, Mary Ford, Carol Felner

We saw some great costumes in the Spirit of the Season -
In the end "Elf" Vickie Hill and “Maria” (Barb Murtagh) and the “3 Wise (Wo)Men” Patty Gift, Jennie Taylor and Kerstin Koenig were chosen by the CW staff for the merriest outfits.
Another highlight was the Heads and Tails "competition" to win a Summer Foursome at Cypress Woods. Congratulations Kelly Viviani and a big Thank You to Jennie Taylor for facilitating.
Players, thank you very much for your participation and your support of the Pace Center of Girls.
Not only did we send the Pace Center for Girls representatives home with a car full of items from the girls wish list, gift cards and member cash donations, but we were also able to donate a total of $3000 to their Holiday Fund! Your generosity makes such a positive difference to the girls, and we greatly appreciate it.
A special thanks to ALL the volunteers that helped to make this event such a success and to Cypress Woods for hosting the 2023 LPGA Amateurs SWFL Chapter Jingle Bell Open.
