Recent Actions by the Board of Directors

Over the past few months the Men’s Club Board has made a number of changes in the ways the Club does things. The primary goal of these changes has been to make the golfing experience of our members more enjoyable. Significant changes so far in 2014 include:

  • Changing the President’s Cup competition to be double-elimination.
  • Keeping the entry fee for the President’s Cup at $25.00.
  • Determining that, in any tournament, all players will play from the same tees.
  • Designating three Sundays a year during which the Club will buy lunches for members.
  • Identifying players who do not properly adjust their reported scores and educating them as to the rules that they should follow.
  • Organizing events such as monthly summer “horse races” and putting contests
  • Endeavoring to find a format for a “skins game” that will be fair and attractive to all.
  • Identifying players who have a pattern of reporting net under par scores in our tournaments and reviewing their handicap index.
  • Reaching out to members who haven’t played in the past year and encouraging them to play.
  • Exploring the possibility of implementing an electronic method for yearly registration and dues payment.

August 2014 Rules Quiz

Curley and Moe are marking each others cards while playing in a Men’s Club Monday tournament. The format is individual net. Curley’s tee shot on Hole #13 hits in the closely mown area about two feet in front of the green and the ball embeds itself in its own pitch mark. Referring to the “Embedded Ball Rule”, Curley lifts his ball. He cleans a dollop of mud off it, repairs the pitch mark, and then drops the ball as near as possible to where it had been embedded, careful to insure that it is no nearer the hole. He then uses his putter to strike the ball towards the hole and sinks it.

What should Curley tell Moe to mark for his score on the hole?

  1. “Put down a birdie 2! I did everything by the book.”
  2. “Put down a par 3. I have to take a one-stroke penalty for cleaning the ball.”
  3. “Put down a par 3. I have to take a one-stroke penalty for using a putter after lifting my ball in a closely mown area not on the green.
  4. “Put down a par 3. I have to take a one-stoke penalty for repairing the pitch mark before dropping my ball.”
  5. “Put down a bogie 4. I have to take a two-stroke penalty for repairing the pitch mark before dropping my ball.”
  6. “Geese, I don’t know. Just put down what you think is right.”
