We are very saddened to hear of the passing of long-time member Susan Barrett. Sue enjoyed many years as a member of the FEGC and the Ladies League. She was a great golfer and a great lady. She will sorely missed. RIP my friend.
An addition to the FEGC family is our new Border Collie, Goose Dog in training, Mulligan Sherwood. She is delightful and has already started working!!
Happy Birthday this week to The Big Guy, Larry Gibson. Gibby turns 62 on September 3rd.
