Well our streak of good luck with beautiful weather has come to an end. Thanks to everyone who made it out to Deer Creek on Tuesday and even more thanks to everyone who stuck it out in the rain, it sure was a wet one. Good old Deer Creek another course that I feel is getting a little too familiar but hey drastic times call for drastic measures. I’m just glad they’ll have us.

I must apologize to those members playing ahead of or behind my foursome because the breaks on my cart were so loud and annoying. Heck, I may have even considered driving my cart into a pond to put it out of its misery, although not an original one. I must confess the thought actually crossed my mind around hole 9 when my squealing breaks ruined the tee shot of the guys on the hole over. Anyway, did anyone else find it weird to putt into holes without any noodles or plastic in the cup??  On some of the holes it felt like I was reaching all the way down to my elbow. Then no matter how hard I tried to get my ball out without touching the pin, I failed and touched the pin. I went through a whole bottle of hand sanitizer and every time I thought about all you guys touching the same pin I used an extra pump. I hope everyone has a great weekend and stays safe.

 

GOLF TIP OF THE WEEK – When pulling up to your golf ball or anytime you wish to exit the golf cart it is strongly recommended that you apply the parking brake. To engage the parking brake press firmly on the brake pedal until you hear a click. To disengage the parking brake, apply pressure to the gas pedal. To ensure a safe ride please keep all hands and feet inside the cart at all times. Enjoy

GOLF NEWS - Dick Kamin

 

1.    Masks are required at ALL golf courses we play when paying your greens fees.

2.    Also, when paying for/collecting from the Daily Game, wearing a mask would be greatly appreciated.

3.    Congratulations to all the winners of their matches.

 

 

Due to the rain and lack of completed rounds on Tuesday, once again there is no Daily Game results.

 

The Club Championship starts shortly and you must be signed up by next Tuesday or else you are not in. See Kamin Tuesday or call him before then to sign up if have not done so.

 

Once again, next week we need help with volunteers to walk and/or ride together in a cart due to Tuckaway having a shortage of carts available for us.

 

After golf, only 25 people are allowed to convene inside of the clubhouse and bar. Seating will be available outside as usual.

 

Congratulations to the President Cup winners and also good luck to those playing 2 - Man matches next Tuesday.

 

Reminder: If you cannot play your match as scheduled, you MUST call your opponent. NO CALL NO SHOW WILL RESULT IN A FORFEIT!
