The Great Gatsby, her voice fresh and cool

Could you please tell me the meaning of "cool" in this excerpt of the chapter 8 of The Great Gatsby?
Usually her voice came over the wire as something fresh and cool, as if a divot from a green golf links had come sailing in at the office window but this morning it seemed harsh and dry.

Thank you.

Best Answer: It's referring to Jordan Baker's voice usually sounding fresh (young /vibrant) and cool (calm/ feminine).
