PRESIDENT’S REPORT

Hole In One- Congratulations to Bill Cloud who scored an ace in the July 7th tournament on Mesa Linda.   Bill aced number 12 with a shot that paid him $300 in prize money.  August Tournaments:    First Thursday August 4th Mesa Linda.  White tees, individual low net.   Send your entry to Jack Price or drop in the locker room box.  August 18th tournament will be on Los Lagos, white tees.  Birdie or Worst team play.    Jim Thornton always puts an explanation for each tournament on the registration table.    We encourage you all to read when you check in so when you get on the first tee you won't wonder why you are there.  Membership Chairman:   We have an opening on the board and are seeking a member to come forward and serve your club.    It is an important job, a couple hours a week max.   Contact John Smith or Mike Supple for details or if you choose contact any board member if you are interested. The Annual General Meeting & Board Elections is on September 15 during the General Meeting.   Club members will approve the new board.   By popular demand we will once again have the BBQ lunch buffet.  Following lunch we will have a raffle with prizes exceeding $1000.  Club Championship:   Qualification to compete are a player must have played in three regular CMSGA events during the last 12 months.  This two day (Low Gross) tournament will be played on September 14th and 15th.   The 2011 club champion will have the opportunity to play in the SCGA Tournament of Champions later this year.   If you are going to compete in the Club Championship drop a envelope with your $10 (entry fee) in the box in the locker room ASAP.   One round will be played on Mesa Linda and one round on Los Lagos from the white tees.    September 15thwill also be the regular September (low net) tournament.   Three flights are planned.   Club Champ and the Flight Champs will be awarded trophies at the General Meeting and entered in the CMSGA Hall of Fame.  Remember to get all tournament entries in 8 days prior to every scheduled tournament.    We are limited to 48 players for the first Thursday tournaments on Mesa Linda.    First 48 entries get to play.  

John Smith

President

TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR’S REPORT

August 18:  Los Lagos.  Team Play.  Birdie or Worst Ball.  Team score is Two Best Balls Net, BUT, if one is not a net birdie then your team score is your BB plus your worst ball.   White monuments.

Entries: Get it in early.  Single entries received last might not play if I cannot form a team with your entry; first in, first served

Check-in:  Do not assume that I know you are here.  Check in.

Ball Winners:  We do not keep sleeves past 3 months.  Please pick up your sleeves!

July score cards.  Six cards did not show Net Scores.   Four cards had a total of 12 errors!

Hole in one:  Bill Cloud got an ‘ACE’ on #12 last month and earned  $300 from our pool.

Scotch Cup: Your club players finished our 6th annual event with Laguna Woods and they beat us good!  They lead the annual event 4 -2.  It's fun and I can't wait until 2012.

Pace of Play:  Are you using ESC, Equitable Stroke Control method to finish out your hole for all non-qualiying scores.  Ex:  Your ESC number is 7 determined by your handicap.  You lay 5 just off the green and chip on.  At this point if you know your score WILL NOT be counted for your team/partnership score, then pick up  and record a 7 ‘x’.   Don’t understand?  Ask someone.

DO YOU LINE UP YOUR PUTT WHILE OTHERS ARE PUTTING?  ARE YOU READY TO PUTT IMMEDIATELY WHEN IT’S YOUR TURN?
