History

The Sun City Shadow Hills Classy Niners golf club was established in 2006. The founding members of the club were Barbara Price, Barbara Rodin, and Marty Cohen who worked diligently to secure the 15 signatures required to become a charter club.  A contest was held in 2009 to name the club, and Joanne Gageby won with the name Classy Niners.  Vivian Chertok suggested the club’s logo design of the vintage lady golfer that was adopted.  In the beginning, pairings were done by hand for only 20 members, an impossible task today without computer software for the club’s growing 190+ members.

There have been many changes over the years as the club has grown and evolved. The Classy Niners golf club converted to a Handicap Index requirement for new members effective January 1, 2019 with a majority vote of the membership, and is affiliated with the Southern California Golf Association.  Golf getaways at other courses, social events, and invitational tournaments are now an integral part of the club’s annual calendar.  However, what remains constant is the opportunity for club members to enjoy the game of golf and camaraderie with other club members.

The Website

 

The first Classy Niners website was created in 2011.  Requirements for website were determined by past presidents Sue McClure, Cory Stevens, and Linda Doom.  Website development was completed by a non-member.  Cory Stevens served as the first Webmaster advertising upcoming club events and news, but it was not used for pairings until 2019 when Julie Sandoval assumed the Webmaster position.

Julie welcomed the first use of Golf Genius during her time as Webmaster.  The website was integrated with Golf Genius and automated golf registration, pairings creation, and tee sheet posting.  Julie served as Webmaster from 2019-2021.

Denise Wolsieffer assumed the Webmaster role in 2022.  In 2023, Denise led a Technology Committee through the creation of a new website replacing the original software which had become obsolete.  The Technology Committee assumed responsibility for managing and maintaining both the website software and Golf Genius providing fully-automated operations for the club.  Denise served as Webmaster from 2022 - (?).
