President's Letter


September 3, 2022

   Well, as our summer comes to a close with some very rather warm days throughout much of the state, here are a few items of interest:
  At this point in the year, we have already completed three of our four major events.  The winners of those completed events are:
  • The Bullwinkle Tournament held at Pajaro Valley on June 23rd
               Winners:  Monica Cooke and Mark Worden with a better ball score of 57.
  •  The Ken Peterson Invitational held at Laguna Seca on July 14th
               Winner:  James Tinney with a point par score of 40
  •  The Eclectic Tournament held at Seascape on August 11th and 14th
                Winner:  Bob Postle with an individual better ball score of 59
Please join me in congratulating these 2022 major event winners.
  Our last remaining major event for the year will be the Club Championship to be held at Ridgemark on September 22nd and 29th.  The Ridgemark course is doing a much better job than in some years past in maintaining the course in good condition while still keeping very reasonable prices.  I would encourage you all to participate in this event.
Our annual club meeting, luncheon and prize raffle will again be held at our home course of Spring Hills.  Similar to last year, luncheon will include a steak sandwich, salad and beverage.  This event tends fill up quickly so plan to sign up early. 
  The NCGA recently released the following statement: “The myNCGA App will be discontinued 10/1/22. In its place, we are recommending the USGA GHIN app, which can be found at the App Store or on Google Play. In addition to score posting, handicap lookups and stats tracking, the GHIN app has golf course GPS and Apple Watch compatibility. A significant portion of our membership has already made the switch - pass the word.”
  If you have been using that NCGA cell phone application to post your scores, as many of us have, now is a good time to load that recommended USGA app onto your phone.
  That’s all for now.  Stay well and stay safe.
  That’s all for now.  Stay well and stay safe.
