Monthly News and Highlights…August 2016
President's Report

Hello Members,

Happy August to you all. I hope you are having a wonderful summer; lots of family, friends and of course golf. The course is showing so signs of stress but I think it has weathered the hot pretty well.

Still bo real news regarding the golf course lease. The EBRPD staff and Touchstone Golf http://www.touchstonegolf.com are still negotiating. I wouldn't be surprised if Touchstone's June signing becomes closer to September.

Your board with be discussing the two items of importance at our August meeting; 2017 Membership Drive and Officer Elections. We would love your input on these or any items you feel would improve the club. I will update this page after our August meeting.

I created a file (2016_wpgc_events.ics) [revised 3/17] that you can use to import our Tournament Dates into most calendar programs. To import it, do an internet search such as "import .ics into....(iphone, android or Google Calendar)" to find directions for your calendar program.
Standard warning...use at your own risk.

Please still make payment to "WPGC/WPMC"
Your Board and our Treasurer have asked me to remind you that while the course has a new name, our club does not. Please continue to make your checks out to "WPMC". The board will be discussing a name change at the next several meetings to address some issues with changing the name. We will keep you informed of the progress and send out official notice if and when the name change occurs.

2016 Membership: 103 Members / Goal 150
We are still looking for more members, so please pass the word. Membership forms are available on the website, above the computer in the Pro Shop and on the Bulletin Board on the wall in the Bar annex.

Steve Falzone, President

Tournament Chair Report
July’s tournament went well. It seems that playing the ball down had little effect as scores did not seem much different than previous tournaments. We will continue to play it down for our August and September tournaments. I will of course evaluate the course conditions prior to each tournament and make any necessary changes as needed.

Our slow play policy appears to help in our quest to minimize and hopefully eliminate slow play. While there were some gaps and I think we can do better at this point the results of the last 2 months are acceptable. I thank all of you for keeping the pace of play moving along and hope you all can step it up a notch more. This policy of an automatic 2 stroke penalty for finishing the 18th hole more than the established gap time will now be a permanent rule for our tournaments with the target and gap times modified from time to time. Make sure you read the information sheet on the first tee for the Completed Round and 18th hole Gap targets established for that month tournament.

The Skins Qualifying is over and the foursomes are set. The Gross foursome will be Craig Pitts, George Pritchard, Brady Deitrick and Dave Harding. The 1st alternate is Joe Johnson, the 2nd alternate is Larry Becker. The Net foursome will be Rob Desanto, Dave Freais, Dave Silva and Daniel Turner. The 1st alternate is Tracy Watts, the 2nd alternate is Jim Derdevanis. All of you have met the play criteria so all that is left is for you to make sure you sign up for the October tournament by the deadline. If you know you will not be able to play in October please let me know ASAP so I can notify the alternate.

The first round of the 2017 NCGA qualifier has also concluded. There are 2 teams tied at 62 in the 2 man Best ball, Mark Christensen and Robert Sellards and Joe Johnson and Rick Bierman. In the Regional Zone the leaders are Craig Pitts, Dave Harding, Rick Bierman and Joe Johnson. The second round is in September so make sure you sign up by the deadline.

The August tournament will have our side event of the Club Championship. The winner will be the 2 round combined low gross player. For those playing both days and feel the championship may be a bit out of reach, do not worry as we will also have an Eclectic Best Ball tournament as well. Those playing Sunday only will be playing a regular Net flight event against only the Sunday only players.

It’s time to start thinking about the 2017 membership drive. We know all of you will be renewing and hope that you will pass along to others that we are a club to join in 2017. More details will be coming out September.

September is also the time for officer elections. If any of you are interested in becoming a part of the Governing Board of the club please let us know. More details will be coming out shortly
