MESSAGE

President, Kay McElrath

                                 

 

 

                                        

 

RINGER!

Ladies, we have our 2021 Ringer Winners!  See all of the results at the link above.  Congratulations to Terumi Kohama, whose Gross Ringer score for the year was a spectacular 61, and to Donna Evans, whose 37 was the best Net score of the year.  So many winners and so many great scores.  Well done!

For 2022, we will have TWO ringer cycles.  The first begins January 1 and will conclude June 30.  The second begins July 1 and ends November 30.

COMING EVENTS

December 9 - ACE OF ACES / MODIFIED BEAUTY & THE BEAST - Ace of Aces winners will compete for Ace of the Year prizes!  Everyone gets a chance at this week's Sweeps.  Take your total gross score, subtract the best hole and the worst hole from each nine and then subtract full handicap.  Don't forget to post to GHIN and record your game score where you first signed up for your tee time.  Record birdies, chip-ins and CTP in the space below the tee time grid.

December 16 - HOLIDAY TOURNAMENT AND SCRAMBLE!!

December 23 & 30 - NO SWEEPS - A limited number of tee times are now available.  Sign up no later than December 15th.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

SWEEPS ACCOUNTS - Any Sweeps account with a balance of $50 or more will be automatically paid out at year end.  Please allow until January 15th to receive your checks.

 

2022 SAN DIEGO CO WOMEN'S GOLF ASSOC CALENDAR

As a member of BPWGC, you are eligible to play in SDCWGA events.  This is a great opportunity to play new courses and meet women from other local clubs.  See the calendar at the link below.

CART UPDATE

The management of the BPGC has graciously agreed to allow BPWGC members who have paid for carts to take them into the parking areas to unload their clubs.  Please proceed cautiously whenever you are on a cart as we want everyone to be safe.  This exception applies only to cart usage during BPWGC events.

CANCELLATIONS

 

As a club, we have to release any unused tee times to the course management eight days prior to our game day.  That's so the course can make those unused tee times available to the general public.  And, if we are using any more than the minimum number (e.g. 35 players can be fit into a minimum of 9 tee times), we have to move people around to reduce the tee times to a minimum.  

If you sign up early and fail to remove your name before we have consolidated the tee sheet, you could be causing other members needless inconvenience. 

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! 

Keeping It Together

***The message below was added in late August to this page.  Since that time, the tee sheets have gotten noticeably more compact.  THANK YOU and keep up the good work!

When you sign up, if you are a single or twosome, please add your name(s) where you can fill out a foursome even if there is another tee time with no one signed up.  Not only is this a great way to meet other members, but it makes it much less likely that you will be affected when we go to consolidate the tee times for the course. Thanks!

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!

GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP is expected at all times!  Please do not throw your clubs, slam them into the ground, or use bad language.  We all get disappointed with bad shots, but poor sportsmanship is unacceptable!

Thank You to everyone who participated in the Turkey Trot scramble!  It was a lot of fun and we really enjoyed seeing so many of you turn out for this annual tradition.  Did we rock Tobey's or what?  The fish tacos did not disappoint and anyone visiting Tobey's who wasn't part of our group must have imagined that they just dropped in on the best party in town!
