MIMI ESCABAR

On this date in 1811 the first women’s golf tournament was organized in Scotland at Musselburgh. Before that Mary I, Queen of Scots, is believed to have played on the Old Course of Musselburgh Links in 1567, prior to her surrender to the Confederate Lords. The first recorded account of a woman playing golf is Mary Stuart. She is also credited with coining the term “caddy” having brought the French tradition of an entourage of on-course assistants to Scotland and calling them “cadets” after the French fashion.

 

Tip a toddy

After a round on the links in the United Kingdom a warm drink is most welcome and many golfers will probably being celebrating their golf scores with a warm one on National Hot Toddy Day on Friday, Jan. 11. Actually Hot toddies are great after most winter activities.

 

Comedy night

A nice place to have a hot toddy is Wedgewood Sequoia Mansion, 643 Bee St. in Placerville, and a perfect time could be the kick off to the 2013 comedy season on Wednesday, Jan. 9.

There is a dinner and show package starting at 6:30 p.m. and then music by Tamra Godey and guests is at 7 p.m. The comedy show starts at 8 p.m. in the Empire Ballroom. Show only tickets are $15 by reservation and $20 at the door. To make reservations call 530-622-5222 or go to sequoiaplacerville.com.
