"I used to have friends that just just hung out together." She sighed. " We didn't have to make plans or anything  We just hung out".  The woman on the other end of the phone continued, "I think I just gave up trying years ago."  Can you relate?

Where did our social circles go anyway? Years ago it seemed we easily congregated in some one's apartment or dorm room. Young moms might gather occasionally at the neighborhood Starbucks, but eventually work environments become the main social environment.  How few of us work with groups of people who are genuinely supportive and kind to one another.  On good days ambivalent and on bad ones down right hostile, no wonder we isolate ourselves more and more as we get older.

Where can we go to find an environment where women can get together and have fun getting to know each other.  That is what WomenOnCourse.com is all about. I am, what WOC calls an "Avid" so I am considered near expert, a nice ego stroke I am not embarrassed to admit.

During my first event, I had the best time playing golf that I have had in many years. Playing a nine hole scramble in years past would have had the appeal of a luke warm bowl of watery oatmeal.  I would never have gone out of my way for such a thing.  But now, after having been on sick leave for a couple of seasons and just getting back into the game, Women On Course is bringing real entertainment and new friends back into my life.

We were hosted by the Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego. Andrea, the tournament director greeted us personally and even carried my bag around to the golf cart staging area.  I was warmly greeted by Patty Adkins,  an area teaching professional called an Ambassador by WOC.

After the round we were served a beautiful array of appetizers and our choice of red or white wine.  The setting was exquisite.  From our terrace table we could see the rose gardens and the golf course at sunset.  All of this for only $35 per member and $45 per guest.

I couldn't wait to sign up for the next event. It is delightful at this point of my life and career to meet such interesting and diverse women.  As Oprah Winfrey says, everyone has a story, and Women on Course attracts the most fascinating people.  You learn a lot about a person when you play golf with them.

I have met financial advisers, attorneys, accountants and other interesting professionals.   It is certainly not my father's networking.  We laughed and enjoyed one another's company even though the experience level of the players was widely varied.  The events are relaxed and easy going, the company is great, the food and wine exquisite and all details are taken care of seamlessly by the onsite WOC volunteers.

For more information including scheduled events in your area, go to [Link Removed] Membership fees as of this writing are $125 and that includes a pair of Callaway Golf Shoes as a bonus.  There are great benefits for members including discounts on clothing, merchandise and wine with more sponsored goodies appearing all the time.

Women on Course rocks! If you play golf and want to meet new, vibrant interesting women, come to an event and see for yourself.  You will love being treated like an honored guest and having your every need taken care of.

    • Well I used to have tons of events that circled around my family and coworkers. Since I moved out of state and n o longer work I have had to look elsewhere. It’s slow going but it’s good in the process.

    • My new best friend will be doing something else besides playing golf, but to answer the question haven’t had a woman that close to me since high school, many moons ago. I can’t wait to meet her.

    • Same here, 47.  Not since high school have I had such a close relationship with a female.  Apparently, though, not as close as I thought.  Turned out girlfriend was “bi!”  HOW could I have missed THAT?!!!  (well maybe if she’d made a play for me, I might have known!  Hey, what was wrong with ME?!!)

      AAAANyway...I have resolved that I shall once again have a girlfriend that I can tell absolutely EVERYTHING to & she the same.  Honestly, I have women “friends” that tell me all and their bedroom intricacies (as if I care!!!) and know that everything is safe between my ears, but, I haven’t been there - for my part- in a long time.

    • I am very blessed to have many close friends. Some of them are close friends with the other and some are not.  I have one close friend who happens to be my boss but we were friends before the working relationship and we love to go treasure hunting to see what we can find to make better or use for our homes. She and I also love to scrapbook together.  

      Then I have other close friends that we just hang out together...not really do anything in particular...but our time together is always an adventure.

      My childhood friends....they are special too.

      My church friends....we do stuff together too.  Some of them know about my life than most people.    

      Then there are my work friends that I’m very close to as well.  We are big cut ups...and love to laugh and just act silly and stupid.  Great stress relievers by the way.  

      I love all my close friends..and the ones that are not as close. It’s great having different kinds too. They all play an important role in my life and I am so grateful for their friendship.

    • I think I need to join a womens group here in NY. I love to meet new people, but it definitely is hard to make friends outside the job.  I work 10 am to 6 pm, so don’t really have too much time during the week to meet new friends.  That WOC group sounds fantastic, I wonder if they have a chapter in NY state? I’ll have to check into that, I do like to play golf, and have my own clubs.  As far as close friends I have 2 right now. One I hardly see, but we email back and forth, and the other is a girl I met at one of my jobs, and we’ve been close friends ever since, and we now work for the same NYS agency, but not in the same area.  We‘re both animal lovers, she’s divorced but has a BF and I have never been married and live with my BF of 21 years.  We talk about everything.  I would definitely like meeting some new females around here, but it is tough unless you join some kind of social group, so I better get going!  Glad I have my Fab40 girlfriends!estatic

    • I have a good frien now that I talk to regularly and she calls me her best friend, but I don’t feel that she is my best friend because I can’t really confide in her because she tells everyone everything, even when I ask her not to.  We never hang out other than going to lunch together every now and then.  She always goes out to comedy clubs or whatever, but I am never invited and if I invite myself, she forgets to tell me the date or what time to meet.  And she makes it clear with comments she says that she doesn’t think I dress as well as her and her other friends.  So, she calls me her best friend because I try to always be there when she needs me and she confides in me, but no I don’t think that she is my best friend and I can’t remember the last time I had someone that was really close to me.
