We were all winners this past golf season, lead by our wonderful captain Barbara Hochman. So that is where I will begin. This newsletter, was Barbara's vision for us and although it is much later than I would have liked to get it out, I hope this meets with her expecatations and that you enjoy reading. We all agree that the members themselves should select the name for the newsletter so write your suggestions down and pass them on to Trish at the opening banquet. The winner will be announced in the next edition of the newsletter.
In future issues, this Player Profile section will be dedicated to the stories about individual members of our team, who would like to share those stories with the others in our group. As a newcomer to the community it is so interesting for me and others like me to discover who the other members of our little community are and what stories they have to tell.
Our first profile will be Laura Hatch, who else could it be? Don't you agree?

Once again Diana McGillivary hosted a fabulous Christmas luncheon..

Rules Clinic: Monica Rauch
What to do when your ball lands in a water hazard: If your ball is in a water hazard (yellow stakes and/or lines) you may play the ball as it lies or, under penalty of one stroke:
• play a ball from where your last shot was played, or
• drop a ball any distance behind the water hazard keeping a straight line between the hole, the point where the ball last crossed the margin of the water hazard and the spot on which the ball is dropped. If your ball is in a lateral water hazard (red stakes and/or lines), in addition to the options for a ball in a water hazard (see above), under penalty of one stroke, you may drop within two club-lengths of, and not nearer the hole than:
• the point where the ball last crossed the margin of the hazard, or
• a point on the opposite side of the hazard equidistant to the hole from the point where the ball last crossed the margin. see Illustration
