President's Letter

 

July, 2017.

Welcome to Summer. This month we have the Ken Peterson Invitational at Laguna Seca on July 13th, Pacific Grove on July 20th, and Pajaro on July 26th. The club championship will be at Crazy Horse on August 30th and September 7th. Crazy Horse is a very nice course just outside of Salinas in the country and a good test of your golfing skills. We welcome all members to attend.

Santa Teresa previously scheduled for December 7 but has been cancelled due to much higher prices for MBSGA than what is offered to the general public. We are looking for other courses to take the place of Santa Teresa for 2018 plus other courses that you think the members would like. Please email me back with your suggestions.

Slow play has come up again so just a reminder there are a couple of things to speed up play. If you are a high handicapper then move up to the forward tees, just mark on your scorecard that you are using the forward tees. If a member is in the bunker or off the green for some reason then the others in the group can putt out before all the players are on the green. If the group gets 1 hole behind the group in front of them then have players in the slow group tee off on the next hole as soon as they have holed out on the previous hole. The good news though is that most groups at Delaveaga this last week played in less than 4 hours.

Alex comes home after his regular Saturday golf game and his wife, Amanda asks why he doesn't include John Gumby in the games anymore. Alex asks, 'Would you want to play with a guy who regularly cheats, swears outrageously over everything, lies about his score, and has nothing good to say about anyone else on the course?'
'Of course I wouldn't,' states Amanda.
'Well,' mutters Alex, 'neither does John Gumby.'
Thanks,
Rick King
