Anyone who would like to step back in time and read the old newsletters

that unfortunatly is a thing of the past now that the author has past...

Enjoy .....    2018     2019    2020



It's with a heavy heart that today 1/22/2021 that I have to report that we
lost our President David Stern (Sternzie, Commish) to Covid.
It was so quick, only a couple weeks.
Please take a moment and look around at the friends you have around you and how special they are,
because they can be gone in what feels like a second.
I can't put into words how much this wonderful man will be missed.
Sterzie, it won't be the same without you ......

Our leader will forever be missed........




To Our 2020 Champs

After the vote, all weeks that were canceled due to rain will not be counted,

(after they notified the other team that they couldn't make it)

A couple of rules for the new guys in the league

that they might not know:


USGA rules apply unless otherwise stated, but we roll it thru the green.

You can move the ball a scorecard length while keeping the integrity of the shot.

Example: If you’re on the edge of the rough, you must keep it in the rough.



If you cannot find your ball and it was not heading for a hazard or OB and everyone

in the group agrees that it is on the golf course but cannot be found,

drop where you agree it should be, no penalty.



If you go OB, you have the option to drop in the area where

it went OB but count stroke and distance.

For example, hit your drive on #3 up the left side, when you get up their it is OB, pull it back

inbounds and play your 4th shot. You always still have the option to re-tee hitting 3 if you want.




Don't forget about the weekly skins game:

Sign ups are at the end of the counter at the snackbar
