NORWICH The Canasawacta Country Club in Norwich has expanded its offerings to be more inclusive and inviting to its female members.
It was Karen Mortensen, long time member of Canasawacta, who inspired me to put in silver tees for the senior women here, explained owner Tim Carson. The men had gold tees that they used if they were over 70, why can't the women?
As a result, the club has expanded to include these tees for women and made alterations to the course in order to make it more friendly for female golfers of all ages.
Every Monday morning the club hosts a group so women members can congregate, drink coffee and pair up for golfing.
It's nice to see... happy customers for sure, said Carson.
Kassie Golden, Banquet Manager, also reached out to the female members. We asked if there was anything we can do to the menu and anything else to the club house to be more welcoming, she said. I think we've incorporated those suggestions.
