President’s Newsletter – January 2021
Happy New Year, at least we all hope so!! This year has been a challenge to say the least, the good news is the golf course remains open and we are all grateful for that.
This Monday the 4th is our first annual Ed Montgomery Memorial Tournament, if you haven’t signed up please do so, it should be a lot of fun hitting from the tips on the 14th hole. There will be a special prize to any team that gets a gross birdie on the 14th hole. Remember when signing up for a Monday event write your first and last name on the sign-up sheet (we have lots of new members).
There is still room to sign up for the President's Cup Tournament, it’s a match play event and really lots of fun.
Lastly, we need your feedback as to what games everyone prefers to play on Mondays. Every year the board and our Monday coordinator do our best to line up games that make everyone happy, so if you would, please e-mail Dennis Asher (email@example.com) with the top 3 games you like the most and we will see what happens. We can “tweak" the 2021 calendar if necessary.
Here’s to a better year than 2020! Stay healthy and safe.

New Local Rule - Goose Dung
