“This is like total GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) status to me. To win three times in a season, be world No. 1, going for gold.” -Jessica Korda about her sister Nelly winning gold at the Olympics
How is it already August? Have I played enough golf this season? The answer to me is most likely … no, but there’s still time to get out there! If you are looking for women to tee it up with near you, be sure to check out our Tee Sheet directory. Also, don’t be shy about reaching out to someone new on the Tee Sheet and setting up a foursome!
Late July and early August gave us some amazing competitive golf, too. Annika Sorenstam won the U.S. Senior Women’s Open, which gives her an exemption into the U.S. Women’s Open at Pine Needles (a championship she won at that SAME COURSE in 1996). Nelly Korda has had an epic run, just winning Gold at the Olympics and maintaining her No. 1 spot in the world. Lydia Ko won ANOTHER medal at the Olympics and Minjee Lee of Australia finally won her first major at the Evian Championship. It’s been a season to remember.
And of course, here is my monthly reminder about Hearts & Darts, our second FTL Golf Getaway happening this November at Streamsong Resort. This two-night, three-day event is going to be epic, full of golf and off-course activities, and I can’t wait to see familiar faces while meeting some new ones. Oh yeah, and play Streamsong Red and Black, too. We’re about halfway full, so if you’re at all interested, I’d highly recommend you securing your spot! Find all the details HERE.
If you’re going to be at the Solheim Cup, email Abby as she would love to see you either at Inverness or a little BBQ!

I saw a friend wearing this skirt and was shocked to learn she found it on Amazon. It is super cute and breezy - perfect for late summer golf. Needless to say I ordered one immediately and I know some other newsletter contributors followed suit! -sara (abby second’s this)
