President's Newsletter - October 2020




1)  Dues for 2021 will remain at $130. You all will get something shortly from Mike Budd (membership chairman).


2)  Monday play - We will start on November 2nd, shotgun start at 9am.  We are eliminating Hogan and Palmer flights, all games that require a random draw will be determined by handicap not your tee-choices. The new handicap system has made it easier than in the past.  For Monday events we ask that you wear your masks when paying Dennis Asher and as always, exact change is appreciated.  We are currently working on the 2021 schedule.


3)  The Holiday tournament is cancelled, instead we will be playing the Welcome Back Tournament on December 7th.  THIS TOURNAMENT WILL BE FREE FOR ALL CURRENT MEMBERS!!


     There is lots of “bad stuff” going on these days so let’s do our best not to let it drag us down, there are still lots of things we should be grateful for.  You have any questions feel free to contact any board member.

Got Rules?


New Local Rule - Bunker Play 


LIFT, SMOOTH AND REPLACE—When a player's ball is in a bunker, a player may lift his or her ball, smooth the sand to ground level (flat not teed) and replace the ball back on it’s original spot.  The player may clean the ball when lifting it under this procedure.


New Local Rule - Goose Dung


At the player’s option, dung from geese may be treated either as: 

A loose impediment that may be removed under Rule 15.1, or 

ground under repair from which relief is allowed under Rule 16.1.
