Monthly News and Highlights…November 2013
Now that Halloween has come and gone, another golf season (and year) is quickly coming to an end.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Before the craziness of the season hits, I wanted to take a moment to thank the Board, Directors and members
for helping me through my first year as your president. I wanted to especially thank our TC (and former president) Tony Paniagua for his help and
guidance. He has made my job very easy and enjoyable.
With the World Series done and gone (baseball should never be played around Halloween!), football is in full swing. Will we see the 49er's in the
Superbowl again? Will the Raiders have a winning season or at least an entertaining one? Can Stanford beat Oregon? All good questions but here is
one of greater importance.....Will we see you next year? Before you shut your golf season down, please remember to renew you 2014 membership! That's
right, our 2014 membership drive is in full swing. We hope all of you will renew and please pass the word around to new members. Don’t forget to mention that if they sign up now, they get full benefits for the remainder of this year and
all of 2014.
Again, for those of you who have not done so, please make sure you get your 2014 membership form and payment in before the December 23rd deadline. Renewals up to
that date are $109. After the deadline it will be $119. New members' fees will be $115, becoming $125 after December 23rd. They are also
entitled to play the remaining tournaments this year and all of next year. The more members we have the more we will be able to offer in 2014. Membership forms with all the details including the December deadline date are available in the spike
room, Paradiso Bar and here.
2014 Membership: 78 Members (7 new) / Goal 150
Sadly, it was pointed out to me that if we hit my orginal 2014 goal of 5000 members
(up from this years, 126), and only 1/5 played (1000) in our Sunday tournament, we
would need 250 tee times. At the current 9 tee times an hour, it would take 27 hours to get everyone tee'd off. Boy, what a nice problem to have!
Oh well, I have revised the 2014 Membership goal to a more optimistic 150. But one can dream.
Steve Falzone, President
Tournament Chair Report
Well another tournament is in the books. The weather sure took a turn from nice and pleasant conditions on Saturday to cloudy and cold on Sunday.
Well it is that time of the year when we shouldn’t be surprised with cold temperatures. We only have 2 tournaments left on our schedule moving ever
closer to a perfect 12 tournaments played for the year. I can’t recall the last time we were able to play all 12 tournaments in a year. Of course
now that I said it the weather conditions will change with heavy rain on the horizon.
The greens appear to be almost all the way back after this last round of aerification. There are a few spots here and there but overall they are
in pretty good shape. Hopefully they can do something about the tee boxes soon but until they do we will continue to alter the tee areas during
tournament play. We are entering our winter conditions and may start Lift, Clean and Place as early as the next tournament.
Here is a pretty good article: "Aerification is a Necessary and Highly Beneficial Golf Course Practice"
The Skins competition is over. In the Gross match Mark Hemenez was the big winner with $180 followed by Brady Deitrick with $100, Mike Desanto
with $60 and Dave Freais with $20. In the Net match the big winner was Tom Canterberry with $140 followed by Daniel Turner with $120, Al
Tuialuuluu with $60 and Walter Zwirek with $40. Congratulations to all!
Side Note: For the first time(and the last time) on the net card I indicated the holes were each stroke
would be applied. Well I missed one hole for one individual so when I input his score from the score card it turned out that his par on the
hole actually was a net birdie winning the hole rather than a tie and carryover. I do apologize for the error on my part. My scoring file
was correct but missed the omission during verification. As I stated in the rules/info sheet the Official and Final results for the Gross
and Net competitions will always be from the input of the score cards.
The 2014 tournament dates are final. A copy is posted on the board in the spike room and is posted here on the website.
50-50 raffle winner: Steve Falzone
For those of you who have not yet renewed please do so soon. Your participation and support in 2013 has been greatly appreciated and we
look forward to having all of you back for 2014.
