Monthly News and Highlights…June 2013
Well, the year is almost half over....wow.....but there is still a lot of time for some good golf. The nights
are really beginning to work in our favor. You can get to the course by 5pm and just about make it before it gets
We has another good turnout for the May Tournament. Thanks everyone. AND if you haven't made it out to a tournament this
year..... WHY NOT. You can't ask for nicer weather or group of golfers. Remember, we have multiple flights for multiple
I would also like to thank everyone who donated equipment and balls to the Creekside Middle School golf team.
I talked with Pat Love and any additional items will be passed around to other teams that might be in need.
The next WPMC meeting will be held on Thursday June 6 at Willow Park at 6:30pm. Hope to see you all there.
2013 Membership: 125 currently / Goal 125 Good job...lets keep on going
It’s not too early to start thinking about our October elections. There will be several positions available
(Vice-President, Treasurer and 3 Directors). Please consider running for one of them. Remember the board votes on
club policy so if you want a hand in determining club policy and direction?...run for office.
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.
This is for the 2012 US Open but I suspect they will be updating it very soon.
LIVE video from the U.S. Open Championship, including exclusive marquee group coverage. On demand highlights will also be
available throughout Championship week. All video will be viewable with Edge, 3G, and Wifi connections
San Ramon Golf Course
Download the San Ramon Golf Club App to enhance your golf experience on the course. This app includes: Interactive Digital Scorecard,
GPS Yardage Markers for Each Hole, Hole Descriptions & Playing Tips, Book Tee Times, Course Tour and Food & Beverage Menu
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
The May tournament went well. The weather was near perfect and the course appeared to be in good shape. Scoring was a little
more in line with what I expect with playing the ball down. While there were some low scores there wasn’t nearly as many as
last month. Our first group finished in 4:25 with the last group finishing in 4:50. Overall everyone did a good job which I’m
sure will continue throughout the remainder of the year.
With time on my hands I decided to monitor the transition times of the groups coming off the 9th green and teeing off the 10th hole.
I also kept track of the gaps of each group to the group in front of them when they came off the 18th green. On the turnaround from
front to back there were 7 of the 15 groups that took more than 10 minutes (13, 15, 12, 13, 13, 14, 15) to tee off the 10th tee. On
the gaps coming off the 18th green there were 5 of the 15 groups who finished more than 10 minutes (12, 14, 14, 24, 16) behind the
group in front of them. There were 4 of the 15 who took more than 10 minutes at the turn and finished more than 10 minutes behind
the group in front of them.
50-50 raffle winner: ??
Our May tournament was the first round of the skins competition. The second round will be during the Sunday round in August. The
early leaders in the Gross are Cameron Kisst, Dave Freais, Mark Hemenez and Mike Desanto. On the Net side the early leaders are
Wen Tung, Gary Thomas, Daniel Turner and Ron Haslam. There are 11 players within 5 shots of the 4th position on the Gross side
and 17 within 5 shots on the Net side.
Three of the Four who are the early leaders on the Gross side also were in the top 4 of the net but as you know if you qualify
in both you will receive the gross spot with the net spot going to the next qualifier. In this case this moved the early leaders
all the way down to the 7th position for now. Don’t forget that this is a 2 round qualifier and you must play both to qualify.
You must also remember that in order for you to keep the spot you may have earned you will need to complete the specified number
of tournaments by September 30 or your spot will go to the alternate.
Our June tournament will be the 4 club challenge. This is one of my favorite formats as it gives everyone a chance to display
their creativity and shot making skills. There will be no play from the Blue NCGA Markers for this tournament. You will be
assigned to the White NCGA Markers, White Ball Markers or Red NCGA marker. You are allowed to play with any 4 of the 14 clubs
but only 4. The only exception will be if your age is 80 or higher you will be allowed a 5th club if you want.
Skins: 5 tournaments by September 30
2014 NCGA qualifiers: 6 tournaments by December 3 & on 2014 membership roster on Jan. 1
Club Championship: 4 tournaments by August 31.(To win the title)
