Kathy Zumbro inducted into the WGC Hall of Fame!

Congrats to Kathy Zumbro, who is the 2022 recipient of the WGC Hall of Fame. What a great tribute to the one who “was the force behind the creation of our Hall of Fame! She gathered some members and solicited input on how the Club might recognize the women” who had generously supported the Club over the years. You can read the full write-up on the 2022 News Page here.

Looking forward to a new 2023 season next spring! See you on the course this winter!

WGC Donates $600 to the Animal Shelter

The WGC gave the Animal Shelter $600 in 2022 from our charity fund. The main source of our money raised for charity is from the Closest to the Pin opportunity on play days.

The BV Animal Shelter was very appreciative for our donation. They have several pressing needs at this time of year, one of which is for Purina One Dry Puppy food. They have about 20 new puppies which they need to feed for 6 to 8 weeks before the puppies can be placed. If you would like to help the Animal Shelter further, please consider donating these items as well as the puppy food: OnoBan, Bleach, Purina One Dry Dog Food, Purina Kitten Food and Cat Flea and Tick prevention.

Final 2022 Club Report - by Jean Meadows

Thursday, October 27, 2022 – The season’s end has arrived just as the fall leaves are changing colors and scattering to the ground. Looking back at our 2022 WGC season we reminisce about our friendships, the laughter, our favorite rounds of golf, and maybe that special shot of the year. From the Golf Genius workshop at Highlands in March, the cold beer and snacks on the breezy patio at Dogwood, to the fall breakfast and meeting at the Country Club – what a great year! Fun can put a smile on your face! The WGC welcomed 14 new members in 2022. There were three holes-in-one, which reminds us all to sign-up for next year and contribute to the hole-in-one pot. You’ve got to join to be in the money, and sadly one member missed out. You just never know! Congratulations again to our Club Champions Penny Williams, Barb Tiedemann, Rhonda Dutton, and Janet Swafford. Special congratulations and hugs to Kathy Zumbro, our newest winner of the Hall of Fame. We have amazing ladies in the WGC. Yes, the 2022 season has drawn to a close, but now we can order those new clubs, sign-up for lessons, and grab a tee time. Practice is not just for piano players, so as we navigate life, the holidays, and colder weather, let’s remember spring always comes and so will our 2023 season. See you all around the Village and on the golf course.

Rules Corner

There have been several questions over the last few weeks regarding how to play the water hazard on #5 of the Country Club (over the creek hole). The water hazard is not marked but it is a water hazard. I have spoken with Daryl and it will be marked for the BVWGC club championship but may not be marked before then because of the frequency of flooding on that hole. According to Daryl, the hazard begins at the tall grass cut line. Therefore, if your ball rolls into the tall cut line or up to or into the rocks, you are in the hazard. BVWGC does have a drop zone on this hole. If you roll into the cut line you may choose to hit from the hazard or take relief across the creek on the drop zone. If you take relief in the drop zone, it is a one stroke penalty.


Please feel free to share this information with other groups that you may play with if there are questions on where the hazard actually begins.
