PRESIDENT'S REPORT

CMSGA plays Tournaments on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays every month.

April 5th Mesa Linda Individual Stroke Play from the White tees.

April 19th  we play Los Lagos SILVER TEES…the club will provide your CART (everyone rides) and a BOX LUNCH FREE!  The greens will be punched before we play but the course will still be playable so come out and enjoy the day.  President’s Cup:  Congratulations and $100 go to Ron Plummer winner over Gerry Schomberg ($70) in our annual Match Play competition.  Pace of Play:   We had some gaps in the last tournament.   It’s everyone’s responsibility to keep up with their group and the group in front of them.  We can do better.  Jack Price ACED #8 on Mesa Linda in the last tournament and picked up a $300!  Jack said “this was my first hole in one. All I wanted to do is get over the water. I didn’t even see it go in”.  Member/Guest will be played May 17th so be thinking who you will invite.   No Index required for your guest.  Ask a friend, family member or anyone you want.  Scrip Revisited:  If you have any problems using scrip when making a purchase in the pro shop see Brad Booth.  Brad will make it right for you.   Occasionally someone makes a purchase and doesn’t get change back if the purchase is under the value of the scrip.   This is because the computer and course policy does not allow the person behind the counter to make change.   Brad will take care of you should this happen.  You have to ask for his help.    The other thing we can do is add more merchandise to our purchases and if needed pay the difference out of our pockets.  

Play well

John Smith,

President

TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR’S REPORT

April 19.  We will play Los Lagos SILVER TEES…and the club will provide your CART (everyone rides) and a BOX LUNCH FREE!

President’s Cup:  Congratulations and $100 go to Ron Plummer winning over Gerry Schomberg ($70).   For you low handicap skeptics who don’t think you can win (you can’t if your index is not accurate), these two men were in the top 4.   More proof?  It took Tom Anderson 20 holes to beat Jack Price with a 25 spread!  These two guys have honest indexes.  What’s my point?  Next year if we can find 32 competitors we can have two brackets (low and high) with winners in the finals and a payday for the top 4 finalist.

To quote Ron Plummer: “…enjoyable and positive moments…meet 4 new members…a unique twist to the game and very enjoyable…handicaps were even, so it was straight up head to head…everyone involved will come away with a positive experience.”

Put it on your calendar for next January and sign on.

Pace of Play:  Sorry to harp on this but all of us need to look at our own play.  We had some gaps today.  I will continue to post the top three reasons for slow play at the check in table.  Read it and apply it !  Tks.

March results:

Jack Price ACED #8 and picked up a cool $300!

Hardest holes on ML:  #1 of course.  Only one net birdie!  And #4 with only 5 net birdies and 2 net eagles.

HANDICAP REPORT

A review of the March 1 scorecards revealed another quality job of tournament posting by the members of Costa Mesa Senior Golf Association.  With a nice turnout of 64 golfers, there were only four errors in score posting.  That is about a 6% error factor which would be more than acceptable for just about any club in the SCGA.  The errors have been corrected by your handicap chairman.

Here are the four culprits and the type of error made:

Mike Bekins - Posted Home instead of Tournament

Jim Ortale - Failed to adjust, posted score too high

Tom Moore - Failed to adjust, posted score too high

Mike Casey - Failed to adjust, posted score too high

As always, if you have any problems posting or have any handicap questions, please call me at (714) 536-6211 or email me at msupple1944@gmail.com.

Mike Supple

Handicap Chairman
