“Please welcome the hosts of our show Pat Sajak and Vanna White” and we were off for our day trip to Water Valley themed Wheel of Fore-Tune. Mondays this June have seen all kinds of rotten weather so we had our fingers crossed. We couldn’t have asked for a better day, the sun was shinning, the temperature was great and there was a slight breeze, who could ask for more?
Nadien, the events coordinator did a fabulous job and our clubs were efficiently managed and placed on our carts. When the participants checked in they received a “money bag” which contained not money but golf balls which was another very generous donation. We were a shot gun start and our great parade of golf carts, commenced stopping at the teeing ground of our assigned holes and the fun began.
The golf course was in wonderful shape and it is certainly a hidden gem and great fun to play. Water Valley Golf & Country Club offers terrific views and challenging play for golfers at every skill level. Well-groomed fairways and greens keep the course difficult yet friendly.
Following our round we were treated to a very tasty meal, the protein consisted of smoked brisket, pulled pork and chicken drumsticks served family style at each table, this was paired with a nice selection of salads from the salad bar. During dinner the captains of each team came up to spin the wheel which determined their final score. We had a wonderful selection of prizes and everyone had the opportunity to go home with something. We thank the sponsors for being so very supportive, we had wonderful baskets, great outerwear, golf shirts and sun glasses and a beautiful hand made quilt, and of course a girls best friend many bottles of wineas well as a variety of other items.
It has been a long time since we have been able to get together at a tournament and this outing was well worth waiting for, we all had a great time.
