The City's Golf Advisory Committee (GAC)

The new water use tiers have wreaked havoc on the water budget for the course.  Tier 1 was reduced 50% seemingly arbitrarily and we are into Tier 2 way sooner every month.  Each month we're spending more money for Tier 2 water and as of the half way mark, we have used 90% of the water budget.  Staff will be asking the Water Board...

Big Change in Skins Game this Sunday

For the April 13th Sunday Men’s Club tournament, players entering the $5.00 NET Skins Game will be divided into two groups – those with handicaps of 13 and below and those with handicaps of 14 and above. This is a major departure from the past practice of dividing players at 18 & Below and 19 & Above.
This change is the latest effort by the Club’s Board of Directors to make the Net Skins competition as fair as possible for all players. (read more)

April 2014 Rules Quiz

The U.S. Golf Association (USGA) and the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews (R&A) try to cooperate, whenever possible, to make the Rules of Golf the same worldwide.
In last January’s rules revision, the USGA announced the adoption of a rule, strongly supported by the R&A, which would “suggest” the manner in which wagers should be handled during golfing competitions.
Which of the following is the rule, currently only put forth as a “suggestion”, which was adopted by the USGA?
  1. Adult players should not engage in wagering that involves money with players who are under the age of 18.
  2. Following a round of golf, the payoff of any wagers should be completed within 10 minutes of the players leaving the last green.
  3. While the amount of a wager should be sufficient to insure spirited competition, that amount should be not so much as to impose an undue financial burden on the looser of the wager.
  4. When a wager made during a Club-sponsored event is not paid in full within 72 hours of the completion of the event, the non-payment should be brought to the attention of the Club President.

Your Golf Improvement Fund

The city allows $1.00 from every round played at our Golf Course to be places in the "Golf Improvement Fund" and used only for projects that improve play on the course. 

The Golf Improvement Fund Sub-Committee continues to investigate opportunities to improve the club.  With the completion of the tee box project we have proved that the Fund is setup correctly and will accomplish what we envisioned.  We are accepting input from everyone and would like your feedback as well.  Tell us how and what you would do to improve Muni!
