Sunday, August 26th and 27th. There will be three flights (Championship, A and

OTHER CLUB NEWS
This is a gentle reminder from the Board of Directors. In the past the Board has
allowed players to make up their own foursomes. Players have become lax with
the rules of golf. In an individual stroke play tournament, buddies have have been
giving each other advice. This is a violation of USGA Rule 8.
USGA definition of advice is as follows:
Advice is any counsel or suggestion that could influence a player in determining
his play, the choice of club, or the method of making a stroke.
Information on the Rules, Distance, or matter of public information, such as the
position of hazards or the flagstick on the putting green is NOT advice. In
stroke play, there is a 2-stroke penalty. In match play, there is a loss of hole
THE LAST TOURNAMENT
The first and last group finished in 4 hours and 15 minutes and 4 hours and 50
minutes, respectively. We are getting better.
Please remember if your group is falling behind, the first two players to hole out
should head to the next tee box and hit away. If the two players are in different
golf carts, take one cart. The rider can select a club(s) for his tee shot and take off.
Thanks for your cooperation.
NEXT MONTHLY CLUB MEETING
The next club meeting will be on Thursday, August 17th. We will have the DERBY
before the meeting. The DERBY may be a 4-club, 4 hole event. Remember, the
entry fee is $10. No charge for green fee or cart.
See you on the golf course.
