Captain’s Report – April 2018
Highlights from the April executive meeting:
All members are required to arrive 30 minutes before their tee times as this helps the starters. Also, NO Shows should follow the procedures for cancelling to avoid any playing penalties.
Membership-Daryl Stowe noted that there are now 97 applicants on the Wait List.
Starter-Gerry Galasso said the Starter desk will have John Rogers, Tom Borthwick, and Steve ordey on it for May. Gerry will also invite new members to sit on the desk starting in May.
Rules-John Scott noted that the red stakes near the practice area, between Holes 1 & 18, are a continuation of the red stakes down the tree line between Holes 1 & 18. The ball is to be moved perpendicularly back inside the red stake line with a one stroke penalty.
It should be noted that a ball landing in the sand traps on the other side of the red stakes should be treated in the same way.
John also clarified the rule for Hole #8. When a tee shot lands anywhere on the island green but then rolls back into the water you must go to the Drop Zone, located in the lower right corner, to replay your next shot with a loss of one stroke.
If you go directly into the water surrounding this island green you must play your third shot from the Tee side of the water.
Tournaments-Gordon Thorne noted that the next tournament is the Best Ball Competition May 23.
Gord also noted that where Handicaps are required on the Score cards for a tournament, it will be up to the Card Captain to check the notice board for the list of handicaps. For a handicap all new members must have 5 games entered into the computer to qualify.
Charity-Doug Parmenter noted that approximately $4,400 was raised for the Charity from the Easter Sunday golf proceeds. Country Meadows Golf Club donated all green fees for Easter Sunday.
Nominating Committee -Terry Greenslade indicated the Executive positions that are to be filled for 2019: Secretary; Treasurer; Membership; Rules; Health, Welfare, & Merchandising; and Club Tournaments.
Next Meeting: Thursday, May 31, 2018 at 9:00 am in the tent at Country Meadows.
