Buckskin Ladies enjoy a day back on the green

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, WA - The time is finally here: better weather, more things to do outdoors...like golf! Reporter Crystal Garcia got to hang out with a group of ladies who just started up their season.

Never having been out to a golf course, Crystal had a lot to learn and also didn't have the right apparel, but nonetheless the ladies took her under their wing.

"This is our first day today, and as you can tell it's a bit windy and chilly but we're playing anyways," said Holly Gould, president of the Buckskin Ladies Golf Club.

It's been a long winter for Gould and the ladies, who are finally able to have league meetings and enjoy a game.

"Everyone gets along, so supportive of everyone else golfing, giving good tips, cheering people on, and that's the fun and the comradery of it all," Gould said.

A comradery that has been around for years. The club is filled with tradition. Charla Casey, a 15 year member, told Crystal the club has been around much longer than that.

"My daughter-in-law who is in her 50s had a grandmother who golfed in this very same club," said Casey. "I believe she golfed in the late forties."

Today, the group is made up of active senior women who want to keep the league growing.

"There are probably 17 ladies, we have a wonderful time, anyone of any age is welcome to join us," said Casey. "We would love to have you come in and join us."

It's all about having fun, no matter what you think your skill level is.

"I'm not good, but I love it."

You can find the ladies at the Buckskin Golf Course every Wednesday morning at 9:00 a.m.
