Our 2024 Chapter Championship Recap

Another Superb CHA CHA!


Thank you to all our members who played in the 2024 Chapter Championship "CHA CHA" at Singing Hills Golf Resort at Sycuan. It was a resounding success because you all showed up in force to experience the friendly competition, followed by a delicious barbecue buffet luncheon and an exciting prize presentation.


Congratulations to all our flight winners, especially our newly crowned Gross and Net Champions. We were extremely happy to return to the Willow Glen Course at Singing Hills after a two-year hiatus while the grounds were under construction, getting extensive upgrades. The wait was worth it! The fairways were in beautiful condition, and it paid for players to stay out of the lush rough and trees. The greens were well-manicured and challenging, which led to tight competition at every flight level.


On behalf of our entire Chapter, I would like to thank Stacey Hayashi for her creative vision for our premier event of the year and for leading a dedicated team of volunteers to help execute her plan. Another outstanding Cha Cha is in the books!


Jen Faye - Chapter President


We had 48 players who showed up, wanted it & went out to tackle Willow Glen at Singing Hills Golf Resort for two days at our most prestigious chapter competition, our Chapter Championship! 

Great golf weather, a challenging golf course, and an early shotgun start on Sunday – all put together to make for a grinding competition for two days and many winners!


It's the collective effort that makes our Chapter Championship a success. Thank you all for your participation and dedication to this event!

  • 48 players with five flights of play
  • 6 First-Time CHA CHA competitors 


A special shoutout to our Chapter Championship Planning Committee for their exceptional work this year. Karen Bridges, Nanette Circo, Brenda Scarth, Beth Davidson, Jane Langdon, Paula Smith, and Jen Faye-your contributions were invaluable! 


Big thanks to Mary Shepperd & Michelle Schmidt for their help in developing our tournament rules & rulings. 


Thank you to our event volunteers – Lisa Schmidt, Pam Pongratz & Lois Spence.

Chapter Championship Sponsor

Vessel Golf Wins the Day...

Congratulations to all the winners, as the 2024 CHA went off without a hitch! As a Chapter, we are extremely fortunate to have several wonderful companies and businesses supporting us this year, but none better than Vessel Golf.

This year, each CHA CHA participant was given a Vessel-branded golf towel valued at $40.00. The overall Gross and Net winners will be awarded a customized Vessel golf bag of their choice.

I can’t say enough about Vessel’s generosity throughout this year. So please consider Vessel FIRST when purchasing a new golf bag or lifestyle accessory.

In addition, I would also like to thank the Singing Hills golf staff for their attentiveness and professionalism. Everyone took great care of us throughout the weekend with all our requests and needs. Singing Hills is another supportive Chapter sponsor that keeps on giving.

Again, congratulations to all participants and winners, and I hope you enjoyed being a part of the 2024 Chapter Championship.

Nanette Circo, Sponsorships Director
