Presidents Newsletter May 2021


I was just thinking, here it is May 2nd and I need to write a “newsletter”, only problem is there is not much news worth talking about.  First of all, I would like to thank Angel and Kevin for the tremendous condition of the golf course, so when you see them, please acknowledge their efforts.  As a men’s club let’s continue to help keep the course in good shape by filling divots (not just yours but others as well), fixing ball marks on greens and just generally helping out where we can and remember, range balls are for the driving range not your garage.

Only one hole-in-one that I know about in April.  Vern Moore had an ace on hole # 11 on the 19th—Congratulations Vern!! Most of the snowbirds have left and are back enjoying the cooler weather up north.  As for us " desert rats" we should have no interruptions in our Monday events for a while and I hope you are all happy with the variety of Monday formats. Lots of thought and effort has been put out to make everyone want to participate.

Everyone stay safe and enjoy the warmer weather.


God Bless!!
Rich Mercatante-President TLQMC
