President's Message

     Fall is still a great time for golf in the high desert. If you haven't had much time to play this summer don't worry - we still have 6 weeks of golfing activities planned. Go to and get signed up!!

     I would like to clarify the use of "League" on our website. Our weekly 9 hole golf events are not competitive but rather the complete opposite. These events are organized to provide a come when you can opportunity to play and learn more about golf and make new friends. Please note that we use the word "League" very loosely.

     Remember September is Chapter elections month. You will be receiving a ballot via email. Voting will be Sept 9 through Sept 20. I am very excited about the list of candidates and sincerely hope you will take the time and vote.
