Gentlemen of the Builders Tee Club:
 May 28, 2020

  

The State of Illinois has adjusted their rules and guidelines for re-opening some businesses, including golf courses starting at the end of next week. Therefore, it appears we will be able to begin our golf season on June 2nd with restrictions. I will try to detail what Dick Kamin and Tom Ollenburger have come up with, so that golf can begin. The first 3 weeks are outlined as follows:

 

June 2nd - Tuckaway Golf Club

 

         Tee times starting at 9:00 a.m. on the 1st and 10th holes

         Carts will be used with single riders ONLY - Kamin is looking for volunteers to walk the course to ensure golf cart availability, but all golf clubs will be on a golf cart in their foursome.

         You will be able to pay your greens fees in the Pro Shop prior to golf

         There will be a Daily Game ($20) on that day, but no other event.

         THERE WILL BE NO CLOSEST TO THE PIN THIS YEAR DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS.

         Daily Game entry allocation will be skins and blind doubles partners. Blind doubles will pay 4 spots each week.

         Food will be available outside of the clubhouse, but not inside the clubhouse.

         Call or text Kamin with your name and/or foursome to get a tee time. Tee times will be listed in next week's newsletter.

 

June 8th (Monday) - Pottawattomie Country Club (Michigan City, IN)

 

         11:00 a.m. SHOTGUN START Chicago time.

         $80 per person, includes Daily Game

         Guests are welcome to attend

         Golf carts will be used for all golfers

         Food available outside, but not inside.

 

June 9th (Tuesday) Broken Arrow Golf Club

         East and South Courses will be played

         Tee Times starting at 9:00 a.m. (Both courses)

         1st Round President's Cup - Kamin will be scheduling matches

         Members need to call Kamin for President's Cup sign up.

         Others not in President's Cup will need to call Kamin for tee time

 

June 16th (Tuesday) Gleneagles Red

 

         Tee times starting at 9:00 a.m.

         1st Round 2-Man Tournament

         Due to limited timeframe this year, limited to 32 team entries (16 each division)

         4 spots will be paid out.

Sick & Vigil

John Guarnieri suffered a stroke about three weeks ago which required some emergency surgery. John is now home and recovering slowly. Please keep Guido in your thoughts and prayers.

Please send any sick & vigil to Larry Garetto at larrygaretto@beggarspizza.com

Also, get well wishes to Peter Garetto, who has been absent for the last 3 weeks with an unknown condition and has been unable to contribute his words of wisdom to the newsletters. Will update everyone if I'm able to find out anything.

Sincerely,
Andy Zilis

COVID-19 Prevention

Click to read the Phase III golf restictions-rev 5/24/20.

 

Interrupting our regular programming, for an urgent announcement.  All information is taken straight from the CDC website, the following is not fake news or a Dem hoax despite what many of you might think.

 

Who is at Higher Risk?

Early information out of China, where COVID-19 first started, shows that some people are at higher risk of getting very sick from this illness. This includes:

Older adults (over 65)

People who have serious chronic medical conditions like:

Heart disease

Diabetes

Lung disease

 

If a COVID-19 outbreak happens in your community, it could last for a long time. (An outbreak is when a large number of people suddenly get sick.) Depending on how severe the outbreak is, public health officials may recommend community actions to reduce people’s risk of being exposed to COVID-19. These actions can slow the spread and reduce the impact of disease.  If you are at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 because of your age or because you have a serious long-term health problem, it is extra important for you to take actions to reduce your risk of getting sick with the disease.

 

If you are at higher risk of getting very sick from COVID-19, you should:

         Stock up on supplies.

         Take everyday precautions to keep space between yourself and others.

 

When you go out in public, keep away from others who are sick, limit close contact and wash your hands often.

         Avoid crowds as much as possible.

         Avoid cruise travel and non-essential air travel.

During a COVID-19 outbreak in your community, stay home as much as possible to further reduce your risk of being exposed.

 

         Watch for symptoms and emergency warning signs

         Pay attention for potential COVID-19 symptoms including fever, cough, and shortness of breath. If you feel like you are developing symptoms call your doctor!

 

If you develop emergency warning signs for COVID-19 get medical attention immediately. In adults, emergency warning signs*:

         Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath

         Persistent pain or pressure in the chest

         New confusion or inability to arouse

         Bluish lips or face

*This list is not all inclusive. Please consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.

 

And lastly What to Do if You Get Sick

Stay home and call your doctor

         Call your healthcare provider and let them know about your symptoms. Tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help them take care of you and keep other people from getting infected or exposed.

         If you are not sick enough to be hospitalized, you can recover at home. Follow CDC instructions for how to take care of yourself at home.

         Know when to get emergency help

         Get medical attention immediately if you have any of the emergency warning signs listed above.
