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.

The Presidents Cup is Being Played

On Sunday June 29, 28 players entered the "Pairings Competition" to determine who will be paired with whom for the first match-play round of our President's Cup.

All pairings and subsequent results can be viewed by clicking on the    President's Cup  tab at the top of this page.
All competing pairs scheduled their first match to be completed some time before July 6. Winners of the first round move ahead.

This is a Double Elimination tournament this year so first round losers have moved into the loser's bracket with a chance to play through and still win. All competitors are assured of playing two matches.

Walsmith Dominates June Putting Contest

July 2014 Rules Quiz

Gilligan, The Captain, Thurston and The Professor are playing in a Men’s Club Monday tournament. Format: Individual net. On hole #3 Gilligan hits his tee shot into the lateral hazard on the right, beyond the fairway bunkers. Gilligan, The Captain and Thurston search for but can’t find Gilligan’s ball. Gilligan takes relief under the lateral hazard Rule, using his best judgment to determine the point where his ball last crossed the margin. The Captain and Thurston agree with that point. After a ball is dropped, but before Gilligan plays his next stroke, The Professor walks over and says that Gilligan's ball last crossed the hazard margin 20 yards beyond the point judged by the other three players to be the point where the ball last crossed. When they look up there, Gilligan’s ball is then found where The Professor said it would be. It is resting in an open area where Gilligan can easily hit it toward the green.
What should Gilligan do under the Rules of Golf?
1. Continue to play with the ball he dropped, incurring a one-stroke penalty.
2. Put the ball he dropped in his pocket and then continue to play with original ball that The Professor found, hitting it toward the green with no penalty.
3. Put the ball he dropped in his pocket and then continue to play with original ball that The Professor found, hitting it toward the green, but incurring a one-stroke penalty for improperly dropping the second ball.
4. Put the ball he dropped in his pocket and then, following the lateral hazard rule, drop the original ball using the new point where it crossed the margin of the hazard, incurring a one-stroke penalty.
5. Put the ball he dropped in his pocket and then, following the lateral hazard rule, drop the original ball using the new point where it crossed the margin of the hazard, incurring a two-stroke penalty.
