PRESIDENT'S COLUMN - Oct 2017
Congratulations to our new club champion – Jim Reynolds – who shot a net 68 on Monday, September 25 at El Macero CC. Well done! Check out the results for this tournament and all the completed outings on the website:
While you’re there on the website, sign up for the two remaining outings for 2017 still open for registration – Eagle Springs Golf & Country Club and Silver Creek Valley Country Club. Remember that for the last three outings each year we award double GOTY points and the top contenders are paired together
It is time to renew your membership for 2018. You can renew online using the Join/Renew On-Line button on the left side of our web page. You might notice that the registration fee has increased by $1 for 2018. That’s because NCGA has raised its membership fees by $3 for 2018. We will be increasing our fees by $1 each year through 2020 to cover their increased fee.
Our club membership is a calendar year membership to align with the NCGA membership. However, qualifying for a special invitation and a tee prize at the 2018 Club Championship at Spring Creek Golf & Country Club in Ripon on October 29, 2018 is based upon tournament results (flight winners) from June 1, 2017 through May 31, 2018. So, if you’ve had good results since June 1 or anticipate good results early next year, you should complete your renewal soon.
One of our members qualified for the Associate Club Net Amateur competition held on October 9 and 10 at Poppy Hills. Congratulations to Charles Evans for finishing 8th in his flight. Check it out at:
That’s just another benefit of membership in the golf club – the opportunity to represent the club at these NCGA sanctioned competitions. It’s an experience like a professional golf event. So, renew your membership for 2018. If any of your contact information has changed, please let us know!
We are running a membership promotion where existing members will get a free renewal if they find three new members. Have your new members include your name on their application when they submit. AND any new member joining by October 31st will be eligible for club benefits through the end of the year.
If you are planning to join the club for our Mesquite, Nevada trip (February 25th – March 1st), please send me your deposit of $400. I have enough signed up for us to go and can still accommodate more. We will be playing at the Falcon Ridge, Casablanca Golf Club and Oasis Golf Club – The Palmer courses:
Rooms are reserved at the Casablanca Resort Casino and the group price for four nights single occupancy and three rounds of golf is $795. The price for double occupancy is $660. This includes a welcome southwestern appetizer buffet and flight prizes of $75, $65 and $55 and CTP prizes on all par 3s with payouts for three places of $50, $40 and $30. There will be no low gross prizes for these rounds and GOTY points will not be awarded. Make your deposit payment to me not to the PSEA Golf Club. My mailing address is below. You are responsible for your own transportation to and from Mesquite.
We have a great schedule in the planning stages for 2018. I am sending out the latest draft and hope to have it finalized by the end of October.
