Gentlemen of the BTC April 29, 2021

 

.

 

 

 

What a great day for golf boys! We had warm temperatures and lots of sun, no rain, and no snow. The scramble was definitely a way to get some winter rust off to start the season. I was plenty rusty. After playing with young Jack Garetto, I realized I can’t hit it as far as I used to, man, he can whack it. I also learned a great putting tip from Tommy Krygowski, come 30 minutes late for tee time and pull your putter out and sink every putt. It seemed to work well. Hopefully everybody had fun, it was a good day and the waitress was thick in all the right places, just saying.

 

Here is some member news…Dennis Samoska played in the Northern Illinois Amateur Golf Association, made a hole in one at The preserve at Oak Meadows and won the tournament as well. He told me he’s been trying 27 years to reach that goal. Congrats to Dennis. But, I believe in our bylaws that any hole in one requires that person to buy everybody in our club a drink. Sorry Dennis, rules are rules.

 

Sanctuary this week gentlemen, don’t go to the wrong course and pay attention to your tee time….Lol.

 

 

Sincerely,

Scott Lee

An update from Dick Kamin:

I hope everyone is healthy as can be and getting vaccinated as soon as possible.

Some comments and explanations about the 2021 golf schedule in this newsletter (click to print the golf schedule)

1.  A new returning golf course - Odyssey Country Club. There will be new scorecards with new handicaps and yardage for 2021, but they are not available yet.

2.  Ravisloe Country Club - because of the purchase of new golf carts with GPS and other amenities, the pricing will be increased to all players, groups and outings. Our pricing for either a shotgun start or our 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. tee times starting on holes #1 and #10 would be $65 per person for double riders and there would be an extra charge for single riders. Due to the new pricing, the Officers and the golf committee have decided to not play Ravisloe this year. The Ravisloe powers to be and we have amiably agreed to look at this again next year.

3.  Silver Lake Country Club - We have been told that the golf course will remain open for all of 2021 and possibly 2022. We will also revisit that subject next year.

4.  Italian Day - Rich Schroeder will once again be running the Italian Day outing again this year.

5.  Due to the unknown pandemic regulations, out-of-town trips will be replaced by 2-Day Scrambles on those Mondays and Tuesdays this year. The format will be as follows:

         a. 2 divisions (A & B as always) 4 men per team. Same teams both days.

         b. 1st day prize list - $30 entry per person. 2nd day prize list - $30 per person. Overall prize list - $40 per person. Total cost is $100 per person.

6.  On scramble days we will not be taking scorecards from anyone not playing in the event, but all are welcome to play.

7. 2 Man Event - We will be limited to 32 teams again this year with 16 teams in each division. So get your partner and sign up as soon as possible. Entry fee will be $50 per person or $100 per team. This is a members- only event.

8.  President's Cup - All members are eligible to play. No entry fee - same rules as last year - with handicap.

9.  Club Championship - All members eligible to play. No entry fee - same rules as last year - No handicap.

10.  Calcuttas - Entry fee $50 per person. Members and applicants with BTC handicaps are eligible to play.

A & B Divisions for these tournaments also.

11.  Daily Game - $20 per person - $5 for skins, $15 for blind 2 Man partner draw. Same as last year.

A division: 0-18 handicap. B division: 19-36 handicap.

12.  Opening Day - Sign up for opening day (April 20th) as foursomes, threesomes, twosomes or single by calling Dick Kamin and leave a message at 708-359-9000 as soon as possible.  Also signups for April 27th scramble, President's Cup (May 4th) and 2 Man (May 11th) ASAP.

When calling and leaving a message please make sure to state your name and phone number, so I can identify you and call you back if I have any questions.

Thank you for all your help and I hope to see you soon.
