Monthly News and Highlights…June 2017

President's Report
Hello Members,

Going to be a short topic this month.  Too much golf to be played. ;-)

Golf Course Update:
The golf course is in really good shape these days.
- The 12th hole is playing back as a par 5.
- Many down trees have been removed, most notable the ones on the 8th hole.
- Some tree trimming has also occurred, the tree next to 17 green was badly needed.
- Touchstone has a crew out fixing the many irrigation leaks. Though there are still more out there.
- Holes 1 and 9 have many of the dirt patches finally corrected.

Lease Update:
With all the damage to the course from the winter storms, the lease signing has been postponed while all involve bring the course back to a playable condition. EBMUD, EBRPD and Touchstone Golf have all been working hard to made that happen. I wouldn't be surprised to hear that the lease was sign very soon.

There is another leadership meeting planned for July. I will of course update you after the meeting.

2017 Membership: 88 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. We look forward to seeing you on the course next year. Why not invite a friend too!

2017 Tournament Calendar Import:

I created a file ((2017_wpgc_events.ics) [revised 12/17] that you can download & 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.

Steve Falzone, President

Tournament Chair Report
With the 12th hole now being played as a par 5 the course is now officially back. They are continuing to mow down some of the high grass so it is settling back into the course we have become accustom to playing.

Please continue to play the stakes marked throughout the course. USGA or Local rules apply for all other circumstances.

The bridge on the 7th hole that you used to be able to walk over to the 3rd tee area to play a ball hit over the creek while playing the hole is not yet been replaced. The creek is of course a lateral but to speed up play if your ball lands on the other side of the creek you will have 2 options. Option 1 is to walk around locate it and play it as long as doing so does not cause undue delay in play. Option 2 adding a 1 stroke penalty allow you to drop a ball on the 7th hole side of the creek as near as possible to the location where it crossed the creek no closer to the hole.

The May tournament is over and also the first round of the October Skins qualifier. The second round is scheduled for Sunday August 13. Remember that you have to play both rounds for your score to count. You also have to meet the tournaments played threshold by the end of September.

The June tournament is our 6-6-6 two person team event. For those who signed up and did not designate a partner I will pair you up with another unattached player.

Our July tournament will be the 1st rounds of the NCGA 2 person Team Best Ball and the NCGA Regional Zone Qualifiers. You can try and qualify for 1, both or if you wish neither. There will be a signup sheet on the first tee which is what I will go by so make sure you read it and fill it out properly to be considered qualifying.

50-50 raffle winner: Al Tuialuuluu

Your TC,
Tony Paniagua
