Monthly News and Highlights…March 2018

President's Report
Hello Members,

Welcome to March Madness!

If you haven't done so already make sure to welcome to Redwood Canyon, James Birchall. James is Touchstones NorCal's Regional Manager. Redwood Canyon will be his home base of operations.

Course Conditions:
The course is in a pretty good condition! In fact, I think it is the best time of year for the course. The fairways are all green and the greens are looking great.

2018 Membership Drive:
I have worked with Touchstone about some course specific incentives for 2018.
Here is what we have so far:
10% on most items in the Pro Show. The will special order practically anything at competitive prices plus a golf club discount.

The NCGA has increased the fees charged to the golf clubs for membership in 2018. Your governing board of the club has decided at this time not to pass this increase on to our membership so our membership fees will not be increased for 2018. Renewal rate will be $115, New Membership rate will be $125 and Associate rate will be $65(limited to only 2 tournaments).

2018 Membership: 93 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!

"Come play with a Board Member":
"Come play with a Board Member” on Sunday Morning for 18 holes of golf. This is an open play format for any member who wants to play on Sunday without the need to arrange your own foursome. This is limited to 6 spots on a first come first server bases for our 7am and 7:08am tee times (not available tournament Sundays). FYI, we usually finish around 11'ish so most of the day is still yours.  Depending on response, we might modify the “first come, first server” to give priority to members that have not play in the prior weeks. Please email “” to reserve your spot. This is a great opportunity to have some fun and to have your voice be hear. If you "Beat a Board Member" think of the bragging rights. ;-)

2018 Tournament Calendar Import:
I created a file (2018_wpgc_events.ics) [revised 09/27] that you can download & use to import our Tournament Dates into most calendar programs. To import, 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

Well we finally got our winter weather. Although there was no rain there was our long anticipated frost delay. I would like to thank those of you who waited through it and played the round. I would also like to thank all of you for the pace of play. It was excellent with every group close if not right on the group in front of them. You proved it can be done so there is no reason to believe that all future tournaments can’t have the same pace as well.

There’s a schedule date change for our May tournament. The May tournament previously scheduled for Sunday May 20 will now be held on Sunday May 6. The deadline will be Wednesday April 25. We will still hold the 1st round of Skins qualifying during the May tournament so please make sure you update your reminders and calendars with the new dates.

Speaking of tournaments the entry fee deadlines are established for a reason and typically 11 days prior to the date of the tournament. I am required to provide the course with a preliminary player count 7 days ahead of the tournament. I am also required to give the course a final count and groups listing 4 days prior to the tournament. Please also be aware that once the groups are final I can only add players to the open spots and can no longer move players around to different groups. Your cooperation in getting me your entries on time or shortly thereafter is greatly appreciated.

There have been some questions on player tee assignments. These assignments are not cast in stone so if you feel you should be playing from a tee different than the one assigned please come see me and present your case. Your tee assignment is based on but not limited to age, handicap and your ability to play the course from the tee location. My goal is to have everyone playing from the tee location where they will enjoy the round as well as hopefully for the most part play reasonable well. However also keep in mind that I also must consider fair play for all and make sure that no player or group of players receives an unfair advantage.

The course continues to be in pretty good shape. While some of the greens have some rough spots they are rolling extremely fast. Some of the pins are being cut in locations they have no business being in which has been mentioned to the course with assurances that the problem will be corrected. The course is also in the process of obtaining new equipment so more improvements should be on the way soon.

Barring unforeseen events the aeration of the greens will take place on March 19-20 and October 22-23.

50-50 raffle winner:No Raffle was held

Your TC,
Tony Paniagua
