Dear Nine Hole Golfers,
So good to see many of you on the Zoom call! Missing meeting in person...
For several years at holiday time we have gathered at Sue Brodbeck's home to bake fresh cookies for the pro shop staff and our dozens of wonderful groundskeepers. This tradition is fun for our members and the resulting gift baskets are heartily appreciated by their grateful recipients. There are about 30 people who work on the grounds and in the pro shop.
As with all things in 2020, this year will be different. Nine Holers are asked to bake at home and drop your cookies at Sue Brodbeck's home on either December 14 or 15. Please package them so that the recipients can select an assortment from the smorgasbord that Sue will deliver. Please wrap your cookies, singly or a few. Of course you can use plastic bags, but wax paper bags are available, in two days from Amazon et al., and more earth-friendly. Sue has generously offered to transport the wrapped items to the course—she is transporting them but not creating the baskets we would normally assemble. If you have baskets to contribute for recipients to use, they are welcome. Please look for the 2 cards to sign on the bench outside the front door. (Lynn has posted this on the website also.)

Looking forward to happier days next year! Have wonderful holidays and enjoy golfing!
Some 30 members and SO's gathered at Beth and Ron Lyon's home for a delightful holiday party last Sunday. Thank you to our gracious hosts, to the awesome Social Committee (Ellen, Diane, Joan), to Tom Barton for leading the a capella carol sing, and to everyone who brought delicious eats and left the place spotless. (And Michelle Tsui shared her much requested recipe for Chocolate Carmel Twists here.) A grand and fun success!
Winners of the Partnership Eclectic tournament were announced:
Finally a special event was saying goodbye to our dear member Clare Glynn, who is retiring and moving to a golfing community in southwest Florida. The photo below shows Clare coveting her new "tree" club head cover, our gift to reminder her that she is loved by a bunch of golfing buddies back at Stanford. Good luck in your new life, Clare -- we will miss you!
