THIS AND THAT
A bit of news from our general meeting held on July 13. We welcome our latest new member, Brenda Vatsndal.
Janet Dopp announced the winners of the Ringer for the first four months. The winners were, Mary Jo Moore, first place; Elissa Hamilton, second place; and Dorothy Aleshire, third place. However, there was then much discussion about how the ringer rules will have to be changed to accommodate using three different tees. Janet and Ellen will have further discussions and come up with a solution. So for now temporary the above winners are “temporary”.
Our President, Ellen, introduced our special guest, Sylvester Lucas, the new Course Superintendent and an unexpected special guest, Mike Scala our new Director of Golf, who just started 3 day ago.
Sylvester stated that the renovation of #12 is 80% done. He has increased the number of employees working on maintaining the course from 4 to 8. The crew has been spraying for insects, working to improve the fairways, greens, and tee boxes. He also stated that in a couple of weeks the yardage markers should all be replaced. No date has been set to reseed at this time.
Mike said he was hired to bring in new business and increase play. He asked for our help and suggestions. Ellen stated that the yardage on the score cards for the women is wrong as well as the hole handicaps, and needs to be corrected. Mike said he would work with her to get it straightened out.
