The Golf Course is currectly CLOSED but will reopen December 1
Change is not always easy, but with patience and perseverance, we can find good in change. Sadly, Willow Park Golf Course is closed
for two weeks (beginning Nov. 17) during management transition.
The golf course will be back open Monday, December 1 with a new name, new phone numbers, new website and new interim management team
(Touchstone Golf) but the golf course WILL BE OPEN AGAIN.
Monthly News and Highlights…November 2014
Well, I am feeling a bit sad and depressed at the moment regarding the golf course. Here we are at the eleventh hour and very little
has been finalized. EBRPD finally penned out a deal for an “interim management team” Touchstone Golf to run the WP golf course after Nov. 30 although I am hearing that the deal hasn’t
been signed yet. ! I hope you have found my email updates useful. As I know more, I will of course keep you updated.

Tournament Chair Report
Well the end of the year is fast approaching and we are heading into our last 2 tournaments for 2014. While the ownership issue is still
unresolved the East Bay Regional Parks Department has contracted Touchtone Golf to run the course until a permanent owner can be found. I
have a tentative tournament schedule for 2015 but have not had the opportunity to finalize it with the Touchtone Golf Representatives. As
soon as I do I will get it posted on the web site. Thanks to the entire membership for your patience, understanding and continued support
of the Willow Park Golf Club.
Our October tournament is over. We had 6 flights with 5 places winning in each flight. The Gross and Net Skins competition was also played.
In the Gross Skins Charles Bigelow was the money leader winning $110 followed by Mark Hemenez($60), Steve Davis($55) and Mike Grabowski
($45). In the Net Skins Joe Johnson was the money leader winning $105 followed by Mike Goodman($100), Mike Jones($40) and Tracy Watts
($25). Final results on the flights and skins competitions are posted on the board in the spike room and on the web site.
Congratulations to Mike Grabowski for his hole in one on the 3rd Hole. The shot was described as a high perfectly hit 8 iron landing softly
on the green and rolling gently into the cup. I’m sure there will be various other descriptions that might for example describe it as a
skulled 8 iron barely clearing the creek and slamming into the pin dropping into the cup.
Our November tournament will be our annual Red, White and Blue format. Play will be 6 holes from the Blue Ball Markers, 6 holes from the
White NCGA Disk and 6 holes from the Red NCGA Disk. You as an individual will determine which tee to play on each hole and can play them
in any order as long as you do not exceed 6 holes from each tee area over the 18 holes. There is still plenty of room so if you haven’t
already please mail your entries in soon. The deadline is November 5.
Our December tournament will be played as an away tournament at Dublin Ranch Golf Course. We must pay the course 10 days in advance so to
play you must get your entry in by the deadline. The cost is $50 and the deadline is Monday November 24. Entries will be accepted at the
November 16 tournament for those wishing to save the cost of a stamp.
For the foreseeable future we will be playing ‘Winter Rules”. I will evaluate the course prior to the tournament date and determine what
the “Winter Rules” will consist of which may differ tournament to tournament so make sure you read the Rules/Info sheet on the first tee
to see what will be allowed on that day.
Just a reminder, we are now accepting membership renewals and new members for our 2015 season. Renewals are $109 and applicable to those
who were members in 2014. All others are considered new with the fee being $115. These fees will go up by $10 near the end of December
so get your memberships in before then to avoid the extra $10. Membership forms are available on the web site and on the board in the
spike room. I will also have forms available at the tournaments and accept payment for 2015 membership should you wish to save the cost
of a stamp.
No Groups were reported for “Slow Play” during our October tournament. Thank you all for your speed of play and please keep up the good
