Sister's tournament

I received an email that the 18ers are looking for at least 5 more 9ers to pair up with 5, 18ers.

The Sister's tournament is October 16th, at 9am. The sign up board is located in front of the proshop.

If you have been on the fence whether or not to play, come on out and join us. It will be a great day! We will be playing 13 holes and it will be a fun game.

Mary Heaton

Ballots/Club Tenewal Forms/Volunteer Forms

I want to remind you of a few things:

1. Tomorrow, Sweeps begin at 9am.

2. Please call the proshop the Tuesday mornings to check on frost delays or cart path only conditions.

3. Please remember to call the proshop AND the other members of your golf group to let them know if you are canceling, ASAP.

4. Return your ballots before October 8th. Please put them in the large Lady 9er ballot box, not the small Lady 9ers box. Ask the golf attendant if you aren't sure.

5. Please put your renewal forms and volunteer forms in the regular small, Lady 9er box.

6. The next general meeting is October 8th, after Sweeps, at approximately12:15.

Thank you, Mary Heaton

Christmas Luncheon date change

The 9er board has changed the Christmas Luncheon to Friday, December 13th. We changed it because the SIR's Christmas party and the Men's 9er party were conflicting with our luncheon.

Please add it to your calendar.

Thank you, Mary Heaton

TOC Championships

I would like to announce that our three representatives from LOP Lady Niners: Toni Boyer, Cassi Bassolino and Mona Stolz, did very well at the TOC Championships, at Castlewood Country Club, today. Toni placed 2nd, in the third flight, Cassi placed 5th place, in the first flight and Mona was in a tie breaker for 5th place, in the second flight, but did not win the tie. I am extremely proud of these ladies and I am sure you are, too!

Team Play Championships
Lady Niners,

I am very pleased to announce that the LOP Lady Niners team won 1st place, in the River Valley Region, at Almaden Country Club, this past Thursday. We not only won our region, but we also placed 2nd, in the WNGHA overall championships! Thank you to Suzie Estes, our team captain and Cathy Sulinski, our co-captain for taking us there. The team members who played in the championship were: Lauren Dummer, Cassi Bassolino, in 1st flight; Carla Conyer, Mona Stolz, in 2nd flight and Toni Boyer and myself, in 3rd flight. Suzie Estes played in the captain's flight. The weather was beautiful and the course was wide and the fairways smooth. A great job by ALL the team members who helped get us there: Sandy Malin, Terri Rooney, Mary Maguire, Rochelle Calderone, Sharon Cowles, Kim Lane and Terry Roberts. Thank you, ladies!

Mary Heaton

This Sunday the 25th is the deadline for spending your sweeps winnings until after the transition to our new system is completed. I expect that will be the end of September. Any balance left in your account after August 25th will be issued to you later as a pro shop gift card. Below is a link to the July Pro Shop Ledger file - please check to see if you have a balance.

2019 Lady Niner Pro Shop Ledger
Good News! We are changing how our club handles payment of sweeps winnings. As of August 31, 2019 we will no longer be utilizing the “credit ledger” system that connects to LOP accounting and tracks all earnings and purchases. Starting in September, we will transition to a Gift Card system whereby your previous months’ winnings will be issued to you in the form of pre-paid money card. These cards will be available for pickup at the next month’s Lady Niner meeting. For example, your total winnings for September will be put onto a money card and held for you for pick up at the October club meeting.

As your Pro Shop Ledger Manager, I will continue to record all winnings onto a spreadsheet and post that to the website at the end of each month so that you can keep track of your own sweeps earnings. In order to implement this transition, YOU MUST STOP SPENDING OF YOUR CURRENT CREDIT BALANCES BY AUGUST 25, 2019!

Any balance left in your account after August 25th will be issued to you later as a pro shop gift card.

Once this new system is in place we will explore the option of issuing Food and Beverage Gift Certificates.

Please contact Cassi if you have any questions or concerns. Click on the link to access the July 2019 Pro Shop Credit Ledger.

Follow the below link to download the Bag Tag Rules sheets with the latest rule changes. For future reference, these will be forever available on the rules page of our website.

Corena Green
Dear Lady Niners,

I want to personally thank all of you for volunteering for Corena Green. It was a successful tournament because of all your help and from the help of the Lady 18ers, Men's 18ers, Men's 9ers, Firebelle's, friends and neighbors. What an exciting day!

Lauren, you wished upon and par and looked what happened, your wish came true! You pushed for the last several years to host Corena Green and it finally came into fruition. It was your belief in us as a club that convinced the WNHGA directors to consider LOP as a host course. Lauren, you worked tirelessly and we are all in awe of you!

The decorations were beautiful and the food was tasty. I have never seen so many golf carts transferring people back and forth. It truly took a village to pull this tournament off. Ladies, you are amazing!

It was wonderful to witness these young women play the game of golf. I got to personally speak with a few of these girls and they shared with me that it was the most fun tournament they had ever experienced and that everyone was so nice.

So, thank you again, Ladies. You all helped to make it a special day for these promising young golfers!

Gratefully yours,

Mary Heaton, Captain


It appears that someone hacked my email. If you get a request to send a gift card to the Veterans Association, please do not do it! They know my name and that I am the captain of the Lady Niners! Mary Heaton

June 2019 Lady Niner Pro Shop Credit Report
The June 2019 Lady Niner Pro Shop Credit Report is ready and is posted to the website for your viewing until the July ledger is posted. I just received the pro shop ledger statement from accounting yesterday which explains why this is so late.


Fall Twilight Update
Lady Niners,

I tried to get the date changed for the Fall Twilight, but each date I tried, the clubhouse and the sport lounge were in use. So, I know there are some of you who won't like the Fall Twilight and the Sister's Tournament, back to back, but my hands were tied.

The Fall Twilight will be on the original date of October 15th. Let's make the best of it Ladies!

MAY 2019 Lady Niner Pro Shop Credit Report
Hello everyone! The MAY 2019 Lady Niner Pro Shop Credit Report is finally ready and is posted to the website for your viewing until the June ledger is posted. The reason these are posting so late into the following month is because the accountant at LOP Admin is still undergoing training and sometimes she does not get to our ledger documents for 2-3 weeks. Hopefully this will get shorter. Thank you for your patience and understanding, Cassi

Spring Twilight--"Tee Time Through the Tulips"

A few reminders regarding the Spring Twilight: registration is at 2:30pm, where you will get your cards and tee assignments.

Mulligans can be purchased at the registration table. Two Mulligans, per person, maximum. They cannot be used on the greens.

A briefing of rules at 2:45pm and then, head to your assigned hole, with a shotgun at 3pm.

Once you finishing playing nine holes, head to the CLUBHOUSE, where you will turn in your scorecards in the entry way.

While you are waiting for the other golfers to come in, maybe purchase a drink. Once all the teams have returned, the Uke of the Pines, ukulele group will entertain before dinner is served.

Lauren, Mona and I have worked hard to plan this tournament. We hope you enjoy yourselves!

See you, tomorrow afternoon! Mary Heaton

Spring Twilight--"Tee Time Through the Tulips"

I forgot to mention, again, that this is a 3 CLUB, scramble! Please, only bring 3 clubs with you to the tournament. You can only use YOUR clubs. Do not bring your big bag of clubs. Use a buddy bag.

Thank you, Mary

Spring Twilight

There are a few reminders regarding the Spring Twilight. The first is, remember to bring only three clubs to the tournament.

Also, if you do not have an annual golf course membership, you need to pay the green fees before you register for the tournament.

Let's have a great time out there, Tuesday!

Mary Heaton

Problem with email sending
You may have noticed a delay in receiving reminders and announcements. The issue is being worked on. Thank you for your patience. Cassi

from Janet Trimble
In case you haven't noticed, it's wet out there. So if anyone chooses to play tomorrow, you're on your own, there will be no sweeps. Let's hope for some sunny and dry weather for next Tuesday, April 23rd.

Spring Twilight

Trish Miller signed up for the Spring Twilight and would like to be in a womens only group. Are there any of you who would like to join her? If you want to be in a ladies only group, head on down to the sports lounge and sign up with Trish!

Lady Niners Golf Field Trip to Auburn Valley GC
Lady Niners,

Yesterday, at the general meeting, I informed the ladies that we will NOT have a general meeting in the month of April. The reason being is the golf course will be closed for maintainance, on April 9th, the meeting day. It was my idea to still golf and have some fun doing it at another local course.

I called around and the best deal I could find was at Auburn Valley. We can get 9 holes of golf and a cart for $25, per person. It would be a shotgun start and 8:30, playing the front 9 holes. Since it will be a shotgun, we can then meet in their cafe and have lunch together. Of course, that would be optional.

Ladies, in order to make this fun day happen, I need an immediate response from you. If you would like to participate in this event, please email me and let me know ASAP, I have to get back to the manager, John. My email address is: missmary007@gmail.com

I think this would be a great day and I hope you will join me!

Mary Heaton, Captain

General Meeting, March 12, 2019
Ladies, Sweeps will be at 9:30, March 12th and there will be a general meeting following, at 12:30, in the Sport Lounge meeting room. I hope to see you all there!

Mary Heaton, captain
