This is a tournament you will not want to miss.  It not only honors the current president, but all the past presidents we can round up for the event.  It is a 3-day tournament; take your best two days.  It is always fun for the past presidents to see everyone, so please make an effort to play.  Ties for the President’s Cup will be decided by a sudden death playoff starting at Hole #1.  Gross and net winners will be awarded in all flights.

TRIPLE IF - THREE TIMES THE FUN!

 

Our game this Thursday, April 15th is Triple IF.  Choose three holes to throw out that stinky score you'd like to forget and replace them with pars!  Voila!  After completing your round, verify that you agree upon the game scores and then designate one member of your group to send a copy of a signed scorecard to Dorsey Gale for ringer.  Each member is responsible for posting their own hole-by-hole score to GHIN and the game score on the tee sheet where you signed up to play.

Birdies, chip-ins and closest to the pin are also reported in the space provided below the tee sheet.

CTP

To speed up play, a small disposable marker is being used on #13 and #17 for closest to the pin.  The purpose of the marker is to minimize the number of us who have to pull out our tape measures.  If you see that you are further out than the marker, you can skip measuring.  If you are closer, move the marker to your spot.   If you were closest when you played and took your measurement, continue to report that measurement on the tee sheet to be eligible for closest to the pin prizes.

If you are in the last group, just remove the marker from the greens after putting.  Thanks!

                

GO TEAM, GO!

Congratulations to the BPWGC Team on their second straight win in team play.  Thanks again to Patti M. for organizing our first home meet.  We're so glad to have our Saturday members joining us for these matches!  

 

THANKS TO MATTY, NATE and the whole BPGC Crew!

We are so grateful to Matty, Nate, and the whole BPGC crew for their support of our Team events on our home course.  The green conditions are steadily improving on the entire course and the marking of the Penalty Areas and drop zones are so welcome.  We know that it was a lot of work, and we appreciate it!

CONGRATULATIONS TO MEGAN PARK AND MARY DAVIS!

Congratulations to our April Aces of the Month!

SOMETHING TO ALWAYS KEEP IN MIND

When you're using a motorized cart, please remember that as you are approaching the green, make sure to park your cart where it won't be in the path of the foursome behind you.  Find a place to park on the cart path that is well outside the fairway so that there is ample room for approach shots to be made while your group is putting.

RINGER

To report the scores for Ringer, send a photo of your scorecard (one per foursome) to Dorsey Gale by 3 PM on the sweeps date by either:

Please have the scorer sign.  No additional signatures needed.  Include each member’s last name, first initial and your group’s tee time.  

ABNORMAL COURSE CONDITIONS - GREENS - LOCAL RULE

As you've undoubtedly noticed, there are areas on many of the greens where there is no turf, or spotty turf.  The areas that I'm speaking of tend to be found close to the edges of the greens.  You may treat that area as Abnormal Course Conditions if your ball comes to rest on such an area or the position of your ball on the green requires that you putt over the affected area.  You may lift, clean, and place your ball at the nearest point of relief, not closer to the pin.  You may choose to take relief or simply play the ball as it lies. 

BUNKERS - TEMPORARY LOCAL RULE

While rakes are removed from bunkers, you are allowed relief in a bunker IF your ball comes to rest in a disturbed lie (example - in a footprint).  You may lift your ball from the disturbed lie and move it to the nearest undisturbed sand, staying within the bunker, no closer to the hole.

--------------------------------------

NO SHORTHAND REQUIRED

We have a vacancy on our board.  We need to recruit a Secretary.  We only meet a maximum of six times per year.  Our meetings are currently being held remotely, but we hope to resume face to face meetings at the golf course later in the year.  If you are interested, please let Jennie Russ, our Parliamentarian (and past President), know.

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!
