CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR

WEEKENDER CLUB CHAMPIONS!

 

It's summer and that means TOURNAMENTS are happening all over the place.  Our Weekender members just wrapped up their 2021 Club Championships and the big winners were Carrie Campbell-Wood (Gross)  and Sue Wilson (Net) !  Congratulations to everyone who participated.  

COMING EVENTS:  RED, WHITE AND BLUE

JUNE 24TH

Be it far from our group to run short on holiday spirit!  On June 24th, we are putting on our RED, WHITE, and BLUE Thursday best and celebrating with a little friendly competition on the links.  Choose your tees for the round before you start and see the course from a new point of view!  And remember, with risk comes reward!  Choose the White tees and you could knock another 2 strokes off your net and don't feel blue about the Blues!  That's about 6 strokes more to deduct that our usual Reds. GHIN will help you figure out your course handicaps for each option so have fun and try something new.

And here's some added incentive to venture out of your comfort zone - if you are the winner of closest to the pin on either 13 or 17 and do it using the White Tees, you'll win $3.  If you win closest to the pin from the Blue Tees, we'll up that prize to $10!  Only one CTP winner on each hole, but the longer your shot, the bigger the prize!  And for birdies, you can use your extra handicap from the White or Blue tees as pops (e.g. if your handicap is +2 from the Whites versus the Reds, a PAR on #7 or #16 from the White Tees will count for a birdie prize this week)!

When you report your score on the tee sheet, make sure to note the tees that you used.  And for CTP and birdies, make sure to add Red, White or Blue to the usual info.

 

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR JUNE ACES OF THE MONTH!

Mariko Sakakibara shot a cool 88 to win low Gross and Terumi Kohama took home the low Net honors with an excellent 69 to earn the title of June Aces of the Month!  Congratulations girls!

BUNKERS

If the rakes are out, play your bunker shots as they lie.  No free relief.  Life IS getting back to normal and so is golf.

BPWGC TEAM IS IN THE PLAYOFFS!

Congratulations to our Team for placing first in Net score in the South Division and second in Gross.  The Team now moves forward to the Playoffs!   

Kudos to all of our BPWGC Team:  Karen Bridges, Chonga Broder, Crystal Burr, Joan Holliday, Judy Holliday, Linda Holmgren, Patti McCormick, Kay McElrath, Stef Olow, Jennie Russ, Lisa Schmidt, Christy Smiley, Cindi Velazquez, Stephanie Watson, Sue Wilson, and Margaret Yip.

GOOD LUCK IN THE PLAYOFFS!

CANCELLATIONS

We've had quite a few last minute cancellations lately and I'm asking you all to take your names off the tee sheet as soon as you know that you won't be playing.  Not only does it help when we have to consolidate our tee times, but it's very disappointing for anyone to show up and find that all of their playing partners have cancelled without notice.

AB 672

If you care about the future of CA's municipal golf courses and the availability of affordable golf to residents, please get educated about AB 672, a piece of legislation that the Southern California Golf Association has described as "the most damaging piece of legislation re golf to be filed in a generation".  

MULTI-CLUB SCGA REBATES

If you belong to multiple women's clubs, see the information to the left of this column about getting rebates from SCGA!        

DROP ZONES

You may have noticed that the drop zones on #6 and #13 are now marked in white paint.  If you haven't noticed, the #6 drop zone is now located in front of the cart path on the left side of the fairway.

OUT OF BOUNDS? YES, IT REALLY IS

On #16 (as if 16 needed to be any harder, right?!), we recently learned that the OB line doesn't stop at the end of the chain link fence.   Oh no, it continues all the way to the green.  For most of that way, it drops way down to the fence below and probably none of us will ever be THAT far afield, but then it comes up the hill almost all the way to the cart path.  Next time that you are on the course, check out the white line in front of the bushes to the right of the green.  OUCH!  That's stroke and distance, or two strokes to play it where it goes out.  

IF YOU ARE NEW TO OUR CLUB, WELCOME!  If you have questions, send them to me at bpwgc.kay@gmail.com or ask a member from your foursome for guidance.  We are a friendly bunch, and we know that when you’re new to the club, it is natural to have questions, so don’t be afraid to ask!

SUGGESTIONS?  Let me hear them!

 

HAVE FUN AND ENJOY THE BEAUTIFUL WEATHER!
