Valley team reports

Updates on the Windermere Ladies Golf Club, the Fairmont Ladies Rosebud Golf club and the Slo-pitch Softball club.


Now that we are playing in the afternoon the weather is supposed to be cooler.

However, on September 8 19 ladies played Bingo Bango Bongo on a very hot day. The winner was Carole Stanford, second was Cathy Howard. Three people tied for third: Gail Wilfley, Gail Cole and Sharon Schmidt. Helga Boker and Susan Nikirk shared the Deuce Pot and Carole Stanford won the Putting Pot. I think that all were very weary at the end of the day.

The  slo-pitch softball co-ed and men’s  leagues have finished up for the 2011 summer season. The winners for each night are as follows: Thursday night went to B.W. Spokes (co-ed), Wednesday night was won by Dream Team (men’s), and Tuesday night glory went to the Mighty Blumpkins (co-ed). A weekend tournament was arranged by the Humdingers and Fundamental Events, and brought in funding for the improvements of ball diamonds. Great fun was had by all who participated.

A special thanks to Phil and Kirby Burk for maintaining the ball fields all season. We hope to see everyone next again season!



We held our annual Ladies Club Championship on August 24 and 25, with 26 ladies participating.

Overall low net gross champion is Loretto Keenan, and overall low net champion is Nelda Harker. We had two great golf days, and the weather was fantastic.

Thursday evening we enjoyed a salmon dinner at Dapper’s Landing. Margot Kalmes donated a Kobo reader which was won by Deb Esler.

Remember: the club’s fall meeting is September 22 at 10 a.m., tee time 12 p.m. The annual turkey shoot is September 29 at 12 p.m. After golf we will have our annual wind up dinner.
