Presidents Newsletter April 2021



       For those of you who already know and those who don’t there was a fairly serious golf cart accident this morning crossing Trilogy parkway.  Our past president and esteemed member of the men’s club Pat Martin was hit by a car crossing the parkway.  I’ve heard from Pat and he is Ok with just a few cuts and bruises (there was some stapling involved) but more important, he didn’t break a single golf club although his cart is totaled.  Seriously, we are all thankful Pat is Ok and will be back with us shortly.


      Hole in one’s were scarce this month, as far as I know Al Clark was the only ace for the month.  I apologize for not mentioning an ace by Pete Jenson a month or two ago, way to go Pete!


       There have been some changes to the Monday schedules so please check out the web site for those changes.  Sadly, we have been told there will be no shotgun starts until further notice so we will continue with t-times and money distribution as we have been.  The board is working on a possible new system for distributing winnings, stay tuned.


     Have a Happy Easter and stay safe.
