Jacky Dunn is the third person to win the Charm day event, May 19 and earn a spot in the playoff. She states that she was shocked with the win as she only plays occasionally and with the same Costco golf clubs purchased 25 years ago. Having taken her first private lesson from Jacque Vigil two and a half years ago, Jacky states, ”There were plenty of bad habits to undo and still are, but this shows that anything is possible.” Congratulations to Jacky.

The Handicap Tournament, one of the elite women’s events, is June 9, 14, and 16. Players compete with 100 percent of their handicaps and play stroke play for two qualifying rounds. The top Net winners go on to compete in Match play in order to determine the overall Handicap Champion. This is a great chance for anyone to rise to victory if she can play to or better than her handicap and show the grit necessary to conquer an opponent in Match play. Rewards are money, her name on the perpetual troph,y and bragging rights. Everyone is encouraged to participate. Players should sign up online and may compete from the Red tees or Combo tees. Questions can be referred to Theresa Kim, Handicap Committee Chair.
