January Thaw - Cooper's Hawk Easton

It was a CHILLY evening but the Columbus LPGA Amateur ladies warmed up the venue and made it a fun night. Thanks for braving the cold!

It's the Season to GIVE...


We presented a check to Cheri Jenkins, Executive Director of the LPGA/USGA Girls Golf Program at The First Tee of Central Ohio! The $800 gift was a season-long effort of selling tickets for various events prize drawings.  Thanks Columbus, for supporting a great program.

From leadership to healthy living, Girls Golf uses the Five E’s to Empower, Enrich, Engage, Exercise, and Energize through the game of golf. Let's get more young girls out on the course!  To learn more about LPGA/USGA Girl's Golf,  go to: www.thefirstteecentralohio.org.

2018 Women$ Open Challenge

What a great event!!  The inaugural Women$ Open Challenge was an outstanding success.  Seventeen scramble teams took on the challenge - both the course AND Mother Nature!  The hard-fought challenge was won by Team McCarthy with a score of 62!  Teams Cook and Geyer were second and third respectively following a scorecard playoff. 

You can see the photos of the day here.
