This week there is NO SWEEPS PLAY at Balboa due to THANKSGIVING. You may make your own tee times through the City's Website. The following week, December 3, is "DECEMBER ACE DAY". This will be the first Ace Day for the 2021 season, so all members are in the running again! Ace Day Winners are the Low Gross and Low Net over the field. Please go over your score card with your group. Remember to have your group take a photo, straight on, of your 4 player card and send it to Colleen Bolger - or text to 206-930-8663 for RINGER. After you have posted your score, go to the SIGN-UP page and record your game score beside your name, and any Birdies, Chip-ins, or CTP on the sheet. For CTP you need a measuring tape, and have someone in your group confirm your distance. Record you distance on the Sign-In sheet.

Our Tee Time Chairs have added "TIME of PLAY" next to the sign up sheet. Please look at the times. If you can play in 4 hours, head for the top of the tee sheet. If you are a 4hr 15min, sign up in the middle. If you need more time, sign up in the 4hr 30min section. We all need to aim for NO MORE than 4hr 30min! If you have a hole open, please let the group behind you play through. Play READY GOLF!! Your slow speed affects everyone behind you! Let's speed it up!
If you are having difficulty finding the tee time sheet on the On-Line sign up, use your curser to move to the right at the bottom of the sheets until you find the date you are looking for.
Thanks, Jennie Russ
