President's Report

Hello Members,

I will be updating my article but I wanted our TC's information to be posted. Steve Board Elections
We will again be having our board election after our October Tournament. We are looking for members interested in running for the board. It is a two year commitment but duties are light.   Vice President, Treasurer and 2 Directors positions are up for election.

2017 Membership Drive Beginning!
Beginning October 1, our 2017 Membership drive will begin.
More information to follow.

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.

2016 Membership: 103 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.

Steve Falzone, President

Tournament Chair Report
We will be making a major rules change for our tournaments. Starting with the October tournament we will use the Red, Yellow and White stakes the Course Management has placed throughout the golf course to determine play. This will mean some changes to how we previously played certain areas but upon review over the past month there doesn’t appear to be any instances where the change will present an unfair advantage or disadvantage to any player or group of players. We will conduct a trial period during October, November and December. We will then conduct a review and determine how we will proceed in 2017. If during this trial period you have observations or want to make suggested changes please feel free to do so. Only observations or suggestions from members who identify themselves will be considered. I am only interested in constructive observations and suggestions and promise to keep the members name a secret unless they say otherwise.

The October tournament will be a regular net flight tournament. In addition there will be side events also taking place that will have no impact to the regular net flight competition. We will conduct the Annual Gross and Net Skins Competition. In the Gross foursome will be Craig Pitts, George Pritchard, Brady Deitrick, and Dave Harding. In the Net foursome will be Rob Desanto, Dave Freais, Dave Silva and Daniel Turner. Remember that you have to be signed up by the deadline or be subject to losing your spot in the competition. The Alternates are waiting.

The greens were aerated on September 26-27. The method they used appears to be making the recovery time quicker. I played the course on October 1 and while the greens as expected were a bit rough and bumpy in some places they were in better playing condition than in past years and very puttable. It appears they may be close to all the way back by our October tournament.

I’m sure you have observed that many changes to the course that have taken place in the past several months. There is a list of some major changes to the course that are scheduled to take place over the next several months such as the new irrigation system that will impact the play of the course to some degree. Please be patient and understanding during this time of renovation and construction which should improve the overall condition and playability of the course.

As you know our Tournament prize fund is based upon the number of members in the club, the more members the bigger the potential prize fund that can be budgeted. As we enter our membership drive please take a moment to not only renew your membership for 2017 but pass along the information to any friends or neighbors who might be looking for a golf club to join. Membership forms should be available soon.
