SUBMITTED PHOTO - Women are invited to join in a S.O. (Scorecard Optional) Fun Golf group to be held at 9:30 a.m. every Thursday at the Lake Oswego Golf Course.  This group is a really fun way to play golf, in a relaxed and friendly way, said Gail Horner, an organizer of the program. No competitions, just a congenial way to spend a round with your old friends or new friends. Drop-ins are encouraged. We wont let the hard rules bother us - if you need a mulligan, take one. Or throw or kick the ball out from behind that pesky tree. Or hit that putt again. She said the only rule that will be enforced is that players need to finish holes in 10 minutes or move on to the next tee. For more information about playing S.O. Fun Golf contact Horner at gailehorner@gmail.com or call 503-675-5702. Reservations are not necessary but will help coordinate play. Call the club house at 503-636-8228. Lake Oswego Golf Course is located at 17525 Stafford Road in Lake Oswego.
