President's Report
Hello Members,

Well, the new era for Willow Golf Course is here! As you know by now East Bay Park District (EBRPD) had hired Touchstone Golf to be the interim management team.

I encourage you to go on out to the course and play. Introduce yourself to the new staff and Course General Manager, Jake Stewart. Tee times can be made with the Pro Shops at (510) 537-8001 (Please make note of the NEW PHONE NUMBER). The new website is willowgc.com.

Here is some of the most current information that we have:
- The Spike Room will not be serving food/liquor, both will be out of the bar.
   Coffee, other breakfast items will be available in pro shop.
   The Bar hours M-F 10am - Sunset • Weekends 6:30 - Sunset.
- New carts will be available Dec.1 but not until 12 noon
- Bernie Holloway will continue as Course Superintendent.

2015 Membership Drive News:
We are excited and look forward to seeing you for our 2015 season. We are accepting membership renewals and new members. Renewals are $109 and applicable to those who were members in 2014. All others are considered new with the fee being $115. These fees will go up by $10 near the end of December so get your memberships in before then to avoid the extra $10. Membership forms are available on the website and on the board in the spike room.

2015 Tournament Schedule:
Our 2015 Tournament Schedule has submitted and approved. You will find it on this website in the left column. I think Tony has created a fun and interesting schedule.

December Tournament:
Dublin Ranch Golf Course is going to be the location for the December tournament. I think you will really like this venue and even better, the price will still be $50! I looking forward to seeing you there!

Lease information last updated: Nov. 26

Tournament Chair Report
Well the end of an era has arrived. Willow Park as we knew it has officially changed hands. Touchstone Golf will be operating the course on an interim bases until such time that the parks department can send out another revised RFP and a permanent lessee found. Steve and I have met with Touchstone and they have assured us that our status on the course will not change.

Our November tournament seemed to go off well in spite of the uncertainty of whether the Bar would be open or not. As usual everyone was a winner with all players who took the time to come in all receiving a $25 certificate to Al’s Market. The barbeque was from all appearances a huge success. As you know we had it scheduled then cancelled because the Bar was to be opened. Well on Saturday they did not open it so we just figured the heck with them and decided to put it back on. It took a lot of last minute coordination and scrambling but as you witnessed it went well.

As you know our Sunday December 14 tournament will be played at Dublin Ranch. I have finalized the player count to the course and cut a check for the full payment as they have required. Thank you all for getting your entry fees in by the deadline. In addition the club has decided to also include a boxed lunch to all the players most likely available at the turn. I will provide more details as we get closer to the tournament date.

Don’t forget to renew for 2015. Renewals are $109 and applicable to those who were members in 2014. All others are considered new members and the fee is $115. Remember that the fees go up $10 near the end of December so get your memberships in before then to avoid the extra $10. Membership forms are available on the web site and I will also have forms at the tournament and accept payment should you wish to save the cost of a stamp.

The 2015 tournament schedule is now posted on the web site for your viewing pleasure. We plan on playing them all at Willow Park. Please mark the dates down on your calendars.

50-50 raffle winner: Jim Derdevanis

Your TC,
Tony Paniagua
