Monthly News and Highlights…March 2014
Although I am disappointed that we had to cancel our February tournament, we all know the course and the state needed
the rain. As our TC will tell you below we had a great turnout ready to play in the tournament. I hope we will see
all of you out there in March.
Last month we added the ability for our members to receive Txt updates to their phones. Since many of you have already
signed up, it looks like this is something you wanted. In case you lost or deleted the signup email, I will be “resending”
it again this month.
No more news on the lease expiration and possible new ownership. I sent a letter introducing myself and our club to Jim
O’ Connor, Assistant General Manager at East Bay Regional Park District. In the letter I made him aware of many of our
concerns and offered our assistance.
2014 Membership: 120 Members / Goal 150
Our 2014 membership signup is progressing nicely. We are slightly ahead of last year’s count at this time. I sure would like
to see it get back up around 150 so please continue to put out the word.
Speaking of membership, the renewal fee is now $119. You have to have been a member in
2013 to get this rate. New or transferring member fee is now $125.
App of the Month
With more and more of us getting smartphones I thought it would be nice to start an area on our website that highlights some good golf apps.
I will try to pick two or three a month that might be helpful. I have an android phone but I think most of the apps I will be choosing are
in multiple formats.
The Masters App
This mobile app is free. Follow the 2014 Masters—up to the minute, wherever you are—with the Official Masters iPad™, iPhone® and
Android apps. You'll have access to the latest scoring, stories and footage from Augusta National..
This mobile app is $3.99. The United States Golf Association is pleased to present the official Android application for the 2012-2015
editions of “The Rules of Golf” and “Decisions on The Rules of Golf,” as well as “Rules of Amateur Status.” The Rules of Golf app is
for you if you are an avid golfer looking for instant access to the official Rules and Decisions so you can play the game by the
Rules and resolve disputes quickly.
In the coming months I will have a lot more apps for you including some local courses, some stores and some odd apps. FYI,
just a quick search of "golf" in the android store gets you 6807 hits. I am sure there are just as many (if not more) in the itunes store.
Please feel free to drop me a note with your "just can't live without" golf app.

Tournament Chair Report
Our February tournament was going to be our biggest player count in many years. We had 80 golfers including 20 guests
signed up. Unfortunately the weather has finally caught up to us with much needed rain. Cancelling our February tournament
ended our streak of consecutive tournaments at 13, just scheduled it for the wrong weekend.
We will roll our Member/Guest into our March tournament. For the 80 who signed up for the February tournament, you will
be automatically rolled into and signed up for the March tournament. This includes your guests so if you and/or your
guests are not able to play you need to let me know ASAP.
If a guest wishes to sign up to become a member at our March tournament the cost will be $120. This $5 reduction is good
only on the day of the tournament and expires when the tournament is over (a check is also required tournament day).
For those of you who did not sign up for February there is room to play in March so get your entries and fee in by the
Our March tournament will also have a special second competition. We will still have our usual Net flights but will also
have a second competition consisting of a 2 person net best ball. The wrinkle is that teams will be decided by a blind
random draw. The teams, specifically your partner, will be posted after the first group has completed their round so you
won’t know who your partner is until you finish. This means you should be nice to everyone as that person may be your
partner. The number of winners is as yet to be determined.
As many of you already know the WP Bar is “Temporarily” closed on Sundays. I’m told that they will open it up for our
tournament dates so we should be ok. I’m also told that this may be only a winter thing and it will be opened again once
we get to warmer weather and more play on the course. It doesn’t make a great deal of sense to me as most of the play on
the course is during the weekends.
Remember to redeem your certificates. With this year being a transition to new ownership it would be wise to spend what
you have as soon as you are able. The current lease expires on November 30, 2014.
50-50 raffle winner: "No One" as the tournament was cancelled.
