The 2019 Ladies Nassau season is now over for Team Breezy Bend, and although we did not make the playoffs this season, I believe it was still a very successful year. We began the season back in A Division for the first time in many years and we managed to accumulate points in all of our games leaving us in 5th place overall. This also means that we will remain in A Division for the 2020 season!
I would like to express my thanks to the Breezy Bend Board and all the staff and membership for their support of the Nassau League. You make it possible for us to represent our course and we greatly appreciate it.
A big thank you to the players who qualified to play this season and contributed to our success in 2019: Charmaine Mackid, Cathy Greer, Leslie Olson, Jennifer Finch, Roz Moore, Ruth MacEachern, Colleen Kleysen, and Shelley Muir.
Well done team!
