President's Report

Hello Members,

I hope everyone has a fun, safe and wonderful 4th of July long weekend!
I have no report this month.

Lease Update:
With all the damage to the course from the winter storms, the lease signing has been postponed while all involve bring the course back to a playable condition. EBMUD, EBRPD and Touchstone Golf have all been working hard to made that happen. I wouldn't be surprised to hear that the lease was sign very soon.

There is another leadership meeting planned for this month. I will of course update you after the meeting.

2017 Membership: 88 Members / Goal 150
We are still looking for more members, so please pass the word. Membership forms are available on the website, above the computer in the Pro Shop and on the Bulletin Board on the wall in the Bar annex. We look forward to seeing you on the course next year. Why not invite a friend too!

2017 Tournament Calendar Import:
I created a file ((2017_wpgc_events.ics) [revised 12/17] that you can download & use to import our Tournament Dates into most calendar programs. To import it, do an internet search such as "import .ics into....(iphone, Android or Google Calendar)" to find directions for your calendar program. Standard warning...use at your own risk.

Please still make payment to "WPGC/WPMC"
Your Board and our Treasurer have asked me to remind you that while the course has a new name, our club does not. Please continue to make your checks out to "WPMC". The board will be discussing a name change at the next several meetings to address some issues with changing the name. We will keep you informed of the progress and send out official notice if and when the name change occurs.

Steve Falzone, President

Tournament Chair Report
The June 6-6-6 tournament has concluded and once again appears to be a popular format. It will continue to be a regular event on our tour as everyone seems to enjoy the variety the format brings. I was glad to see many single players signing up putting their trust in me to find them a good partner. I hope I was successful in doing so.

The course is coming back nicely from this winter’s flooding. There are still some rough spots that are being addressed. There were also some stakes that were lost in the flooding but they are being replaced as well. We will continue to play the course stakes to speed up play and simplify the rules of play.

Pace of play has been pretty good so far this year. There are still some gaps that need to be closed but overall not too bad. Please play ready golf, be ready to hit when it’s your turn and if not stepping in someone’s line putt out when possible. Think of it this way. If you finish the round in 4:20 and take an average of 1 minute to hit your shot once you reach your ball that means you are taking 1:15 to 2:00 hours on the shots and 3:05 to 2:20 hours on traveling around the course.

For our July, August and September tournaments we will be playing the ball down. There will be exceptions that will be defined in the rules posted on the first tee but otherwise you will play it as you find it for at least these three months. Course conditions will be monitored which could result in changes or modifications to play up to the day of the tournament. You are advised to at least glance though the rules before starting.

Our July tournament will be the 1st qualifying rounds of the NCGA 2 person Team Best Ball and the NCGA Regional Zone. You can qualify for 1, both or neither. In order to declare you are qualifying you must place your name and/or team on the appropriate signup sheet located on the first tee. There will be two signup sheets one for the Best Ball and one for the Regional Zone. Those who sign up must play both rounds with the Men required to play from the Blue and Women required to play from the White. If your name is not on the signup sheets you will not be qualifying.

Our August tournament is fast approaching. As you know this is a 2 day Saturday/Sunday event with an option to play Sunday only. If you send in a fee of $100 it will be presumed that you want to play Saturday and Sunday. If you send in a fee of $50 it will be presumed that you will play on Sunday Only.

Also in August the Club Championship 2 round competition will take place on Saturday and Sunday with any player trying to be club champion required to play from the Blue Tee. There will also be an Eclectic format for those playing Saturday/Sunday but not competing for the club championship. There will be a Net flight tournament for the Sunday only players.

The walk over bridge from the 7th hole to the 3rd tee area has not yet been replaced. To speed up play you will be given 2 options should your ball clear the creek and land in the area between the creek and the 3rd tee. Option 1 is to walk around locate it and play it as long as doing so does not cause undue delay in play and exceed the 3 minute search time. Option 2 will allow adding a 1 stroke penalty and dropping a ball on the 7th hole side of the creek as near as possible to the location where it crossed the creek no closer to the hole.
