(Golf Etiquette)

Unlike many sports, golf is played, for the most part, without the supervision of a referee or umpire.  The game relies on the integrity of the individual to show consideration for other players and to abide by the Rules.  All players should conduct themselves in a disciplined manner, demonstrating courtesy and sportsmanship at all times, irrespective of how competitive they may be.

A special thank you to SNGABW members and friends whose generosity, time and talent made this a success.  Without your tireless efforts to solicit donations, make raffle baskets and be willing to volunteer when needed, we would not be able to deliver a quality tournament.

April 4th, 2022

It was an 80 plus degree beautiful day as the sunscreen was sprayed on those winter legs.  Today's match against the first place overall team, Las Vegas Muni, proved to be as tough as expected.  Our first team, Brittany Bronson and Gabriele Buonacorsi, together racked up 23 pars and took 4 1/2 points.  Congrats to Brittany for shooting a 75.  Team two Danielle Kaylor and Margie Cashwell, had some excitement when Margie chipped in from 50 yards out for a birdie and added another birdie by sinking a 20' putt.  Danielle add to the birdie list as well.  They took 2 1/2 points.  Team three Kim Bazzelle and Theresa Summers, added to our overall score with 1/2 points.  Team four, Donna , on a par 3 landed the ball 6' from the pin and rolled in the putt for a birdie.  Christine assisted with 4 pars in a row.  Collectively, the team took 13 1/2 points moving them into first place overall by one point.  Our next match is April 18 against Chimera at Muni.

​Business Women vs Sun City Summerlin

Round 3 at Bear's brought strong winds and cold temperatures but that didn't seem to phase the team as they took 22 1/2 points.  

Team 1 Margie and Gabriele, made a statement early with a birdie on the first hole.  A few more birdies in the match lead them taking 4 1/2 points.

Team 2 Theresa S and Karen killed it as they won 14 holes gross and 12 holes net.  They took all 6 points.

Team 3 Donna R and Christine, took all six points as Donna rolled in a 30 foot putt for a birdie on the last hole.

Team 4 Nancy ad Trinh , gave up the first hole but on the second hole the rookie Trinh sunk a putt for a birdie and that led to them taking all 6 points.

With today's success, the team is back in first place overall.

Team Play News:  

The season kicked off on 1/24 at Red Rock Country Club.  The weather was absolutely delightful for golf and everyone was ready to defend our title.  The BW played one of the new teams, Conestoga from Mesquite.  We sent our 7 veterans and one rookie and they got it done.  The team took 23.5 points out of 24.

Congrats to Kim Bazzelle and Karen Huckabay who both shot a 75.  Flawless!

I was fortunate to play with Huck and watched her sink two 25+ putts for birdies which led our team to taking 6 points.  Unbeknownst to me, Danielle hurt her ankle the day before yet played and played well with Margie, they took 5.5 points.  Our rookie, Donna Roush, played lights out after ditching the early round jitters.  Nicole said they kept saying "limit the damage" and took all 6 points.  After turning off her heated vest, Theresa Summers turned up the heat on the course and they took 6 points.

Next match is 2/7 at Chimera against BC Dam.

Most Improved Golfer 


About me.  I started playing golf 8 years ago, my first 18 hole score was 164 at Apple Mountain Golf Course in California.  Golf really makes my life much more fun and interesting.  Before golf I had no hobby or fun thing I enjoyed to do.  I'm an accountant working in an office; golf gives me something to look forward to on the weekend.Being outside on green grass and socializing with other golfers are great.  Im grateful for the league and honor to win the 2021 most improved golfer.

     I'm also grateful to live in the US where common people can afford to play golf.  When I grew up in Vietnam, there were only one or two courses in the country and only super rich people can play the game.

COVID-19 Restrictions

Hard Card Addendum


A flagstick must not be removed from the hole for any reason. A player who removes a flagstick from the hole will be given a warning. If that player removes a flagstick from a hole again it will be a 2-stroke penalty. Any player who commits this offense for a third time will be disqualified from the competition. The act of removing a flagstick will trigger these penalties regardless if the player realizes it and puts the flagstick back in the hole before they make their stroke.


For Tournaments not using live scoring.

Each player will keep their own official scorecard. Each player will have a marker in their group who oversees keeping track of all scores for the player they are assigned to as a marker. The player must sign their official scorecard, but the marker will not sign it. The Committee will require a verbal confirmation from the marker at the scoring table as to the validity of the player’s scores.


Rakes in bunkers are not available. A player whose ball comes to rest in a bunker will have to play the ball as it lies unless these situations arise:

  • Their ball comes to rest in a footprint.
  • Their ball comes to rest in an abnormal condition that was caused because the bunker was unable to be raked by a previous group.

If one of the two above situations occur, the player will be afforded two options. They can lift the ball and place it within one club length, no nearer to the hole from where their ball came to rest, in a spot where the bunker has not been altered. The player’s second option will be to mark the spot of the ball and lift it. They can then smooth over the area with their foot or equipment to eliminate the abnormal condition in the bunker and then place the ball back where it originally came to rest.

NOTE: Not all lies in a bunker will be good lies. The player must be virtually certain that their ball’s lie is affected by the inability to have rakes in that bunker. Just having a bad lie with no real evidence that the bad lie was caused by a previous group not being able to rake the area is not in itself grounds to lift the golf ball and proceed under of one of the two above options. For example, a ball that plugs in the bunker is not caused by not having rakes present. If a player’s ball plugs in the bunker they will have to play that ball as it lies and are not entitled to free relief in that instance.

Pace of Play:

The Tournament Committee understands that we may have more players who choose to walk the golf course to do their best to adhere to social distancing guidelines. While this is encouraged for anyone who wishes to do so walkers will be held to the same pace of play standards as every other player in the field.

There is something for everyone!

Karen Herness Most Improved Golfer 2020

Congratulations Karen Herness!

This terrific golfer managed to drop her handicap from an 8 to a 4 over the 2020 year. We can all appreciate what a feat that is. Karen has called herself a "very passionate golfer and the first thing after moving to Las Vegas was to seek out places to play golf." Karen belongs to several clubs and enjoys the social aspect but really enjoys the competitive aspect.

Karen wears many hats. Besides being an avid golfer, Karen serves as the President of the Women's Southern Nevada Golf Association, shares role of Captain for the Southern Nevada Silver Cup Team, and is the Team Captain for one of Chimera's Team Play teams. Karen takes all of her roles seriously and hopes to bring the same dedication to help all women in Las Vegas.  

Congratulations to

I enjoy playing with SNGABW and appreciate the acknowledgment of my handicap dropping by awarding me the Most Improved Golfer for the 2019 year.
