It is hard to believe that 2015 is more than half over. What an outstanding year it is proving to be at Dellwood! Our club has risen to be one of the premier clubs in the Twin Cities with exceptional new amenities and a great course; this combined with a amazingly beautiful summer has created a marvelous combination! Our strong faction of women golfers is out there playing the course and enjoying the club at every opportunity.
July 14th we hosted our “Red, White & Blue” 9-hole Guest Day. We had a beautiful evening with approximately 50 members and guests participating. A special thank you to Cathy Poechmann, Roxanne Nelson, and Judy Kishel for putting together a spectacular event! Congratulations to our winners!

In closing, I want to share some fun facts regarding women & golf. I recently I read an article by the National Golf Foundation that women golfers are the fastest growing segment of new golfers. There are more than 6 million female golfers in the United States. Women have had an impact on the game from the start:
1550 Mary Queen of Scotts commissioned the construction of St. Andrews, considered the true origin of the sport & the first golf course in Scotland.
1867 St. Andrews formed “The Ladies Club”, the first women’s golf organization.
1893 Issette Miller invented the first golf handicap system.
You go girls and have a great August! I hope to see you on the course!
