Joyce simply emanates joie de vivre. She loves her life and helping others live their lives to the fullest. She works as director of marketing for an in-home health care company to keep senior citizens in their own homes for as long as possible. This Las Vegas resident also makes time for tee—she hits the links at least three days a week. Keep reading to find out which golf god she’s dined with.
I’ve been playing for 35 years. My handicap is 18. I was club champion, and I used to play in state and city tournaments and was always in the first flight and in the money.
Go "fore" it
In Vegas we can play year-round. I play three times a week, and sometimes four. I love being out of doors with nature: fresh air, fun friends and lunch afterward. It’s the greatest form of therapy. Can’t get much better than that.
Sun City Summerlin Courses in Vegas—Highland Falls, Palm Valley and Eagle Crest. Any of the courses in Vegas are great; there are just too many to list.
Best golf memory
While playing at Doral Park Country Club in Miami, I hit my ball close to a pond, and while I was getting set up, the partners in the other cart quietly said, "Joyce, wait to hit your ball; just stand still and wait." They pointed behind me at a gator ready to enter the pond. Needless to say, I hit the longest ball ever to get out of there.
Dinner with Arnold Palmer
Six of my friends and I worked the U.S. Senior Open in Pennsylvania. We had dinner with Arnold Palmer and his brother. The pros are so nice—true gentlemen. Any time someone can work a pro tournament, I suggest they do.
Keys to staying youthful
Stay in style, stay healthy, keep and adore your friends and family. Stay positive with God in your heart. And keep that sense of humor!
On feeling beautiful in your own skin
Confidence is hard to hold on to as we age, because people lose respect for the elder generation. What a woman needs to do is keep herself looking, feeling, acting sharp at all times. We must stay healthy, mentally and physically, with attitude adjustments every day. If we do this, people will love us because we are fun to be around.

Besides playing golf, what are your other interests and hobbies?
I like playing pool, swimming, walking and loving my new kitty.
Who are your beauty icons?
Raquel Welch for beauty; Cameron Diaz for personality; Marilyn Monroe for her story.
What is your all-time favorite beauty look?
I loved the shag haircut. Natural sun-kissed color for skin and makeup that doesn’t look overly done, with a lot of accent on the eyes.
Do you like to cook, and what is your special dish?
I love to cook when I have the time, and I like to cook everything. Coconut cream pie from scratch is my specialty. The recipe was handed down from my mother. I’m from a family that loves to cook and loves to eat!
