Women’s golf at the Stettler Golf Club has come to a close for another season, one that volunteer co-ordinator Winnie Bissett said was a success.

“About 36 people (were in the league) this year,” she said, explaining that while the number fluctuates back and forth annually, the number is about on par with where it has been in the past several years.

The women’s’ league runs from late spring until the end of summer, with women meeting every Tuesday night to golf. According to Bissett, while the night is about golf, it ends up being much more.

“It’s golfing,” she said, “but it’s still a lady’s night out.”

The season starts with a potluck feast and ends on a high note as awards are handed out to members, from qualifiers as simple as perfect attendance to more competitive qualifiers such as league champions.

“The league is open to all ages,” Bissett said, saying she’s neither the youngest nor the eldest, and that there’s room for more women who enjoy or want to learn to play golf.

“Stettler is a great learning golf course,” she said. “It’s not too hilly.”

She complimented the groundskeepers who created a wonderful playing pitch this year, noting that the golf course greens were “in great shape.”

With the women’s’ league done for the year, they won’t meet until late April or early May to plan out the next season, which gets underway in May 2015.
