President’s Message

Mar 29, 2021

lauren dummer profileIt’s incredible to think that one year ago this month we suddenly were thrust into the profound reality of the pandemic. As we start to emerge from a year of uncertainties, I keep in mind that spring is the season of new beginnings. Flowers don’t worry about how they’re going to bloom. They just open up, turn toward the light and are beautiful.

Like so many other organizations, WNHGA was forced to call a halt to in-person meetings and events. But this spring we turned to the light and found a way to bloom. We brought you the Spring Area Meetings and Rules seminar via online presentations. The Rules seminar, led by Linda Minehan, CGA/WGANC Rules Coordinator, provided a lot of information that I’m sure you’ll find useful especially if you will be competing in Team Play. You can view the Rules Seminar at your leisure on the WNHGA website under the “Rules” tab, “Rules Seminar.” Enjoy!

Spring is also the time of plans and projects. WNHGA has a full schedule of Open Days starting with the back-to-back Open Days at El Macero and Yolo Fliers Club. Look for the announcements and registration coming your way soon. We hope that you will join us for these relaxed and fun events.

The 31st Annual Corena Green Classic for Junior Girls is in full spring planning and will be held on Monday, July 26, 2021, at Valley Hi & Country Club, Elk Grove. This year’s theme will be “Lady Bugs”. The field will be limited to the first 52 applicants in the 8 through 13 age-group, and to the first 52 applicants in the 14 through 17 age-group. So, if you have interested girls’ please have them get their registration in as soon as possible as we expect the tournament to fill quickly.

It’s wonderful to be back on the course, playing with friends and participating in life again. With much of our time last year focused on what we were unable to do I’d like to look forward to what we can do. Let’s look at things a different way and if you have any thoughts on how that might look, please feel free to reach out to me or any of our board members.

Lauren Dummer,
WNHGA President
