NINE-HOLE LADIES’ LEAGUE
“Nothin’ could be finer….” November 9th proved to be a grand and glorious day for our 2004 season finale. Everything was perfect: good golf, good food and good friends! Thanks to all who made it happen.
Our special thanks to Jane Walling, our out-going president, for an outstanding job this past year. And after our successful closing event, we forgive all the other rain-outs. You were a great president and inspired us always to play our very best! Thanks, also, to the other out-going Board members who performed their duties with such faithfulness and diligence.
Our newly elected 2005 Board is as follows:
President – Barbara Rueb, Vice President – Sue Rantala, Secretary – Carol Palmquist and Treasurer – Sheila McLester
Tournament Committee…Cathy diDonato, Mary Jane Hegedus, Diane Koltunovich and Fran Mellios
The winners of our November Scramble are:
1st Place: Judy Block, Alice Demastus, Judy Eater, Dolores Flashman
2nd Place: Maureen Fowley, Diane Koltunovich, Fran Mellios, Darlene Schultz
3rd Place: Bobby Mertens, Nancy Reutter, Jane Walling, Antoinette Weirich
Closest to the Line: Nancy Gray, Closest to the Pin: Julie Jones and Best Attendance: Judy Eater & Maureen Fowley
We “tore up the course” in 2004 with 38 birdies and 572 pars. Looks like Hole #8 was our favorite with 9 birdies and Hole #3 our nemesis with 0 birdies.
Our Birdie ladies are:
One Birdie…Joann Blessing, Judy Block, Anne Cornell, Marti Derleth, Nancy Reutter, Linnea Sadd and Anne Warren
Two Birdies…Ginny Beers, Cathy diDonato, Julie Jones and Barb Rueb
Three Birdies…Nancy Anders, Maureen Fowley and Ellen Wiese
Four Birdies…Geri Kanaley and Sue Wisniewski
Six Birdies…that’s right…Six Birdies…Louise Clifford
But the best award, certainly the most unique award, should be given to one of our members who showed up for our final Scramble without her clubs!! All she had was a ball and a tee, and even though she took a lot of teasing, she had a great time!!!
See ya’ll next year!…Anne Warren

As was the case last year, we will be doing some renovations in the clubhouse this winter.

With this in mind, the restaurant and all dining and bar service will be unavailable from Monday January 31st through Friday February 4th. Lunch and regular service will then start back on Saturday the 5th of February.
The Snack Bar will then be closed on Monday and Tuesday February 7th and 8th for the necessary renovations.
Additional information will be forthcoming.
I trust that all had a safe and joyous holiday season, and the Ownership, Management and Staff wish you and yours a peaceful and prosperous 2005.

SPECIAL TEE TIME REQUEST POLICY
We have reviewed the “special request” policy for tee times, and after careful consideration, are going to set forth a new policy with regards to this procedure. The reason for this change is because members have come to rely on this “Special Request” policy as a way to circumvent normal tee time procedures. Please bear in mind, when this was originally set up, it was intended to assist members whose guests had travel plans hinging on advanced tee times. Unfortunately, this is a very difficult issue to monitor, so we have come up with a new policy that we feel better suits the membership as a whole. The following is now the guidelines for using the “Special Request” procedure:
- Members may make three (3) special requests for tee times annually. This will be tracked by the Head Professional. Once this limit has been reached, no more advance request will be accepted.
- Requests for advanced tee times must be submitted by email or type written.
- Members will list which courses, times and dates they would prefer. We will do our best to accommodate the request.
- Only two (2) tee times will be issued for a special request. Those members having guests for an extended period of time will have to follow the normal seven (7) day tee time procedure for the remaining days of play.
Thanks for your understanding…Sean Desmond
