PINEWILD WOMEN’S GOLF ASSOCIATION
Spring jumped into Summer overnight! We will all have to keep our cool on the course and lather on the sun screen. Now that the summer is here and we are playing on Thursday afternoons every other week, we need to take extra precautions with the heat to avoid heat exhaustion or worse. The signs of heat exhaustion include paleness, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, fainting, and a moderately increased temperature. The best prevention is to keep yourself well hydrated, so drink plenty of water when you’re on the course and other times as well. If you develop any of the above signs (or notice your playing partners exhibiting any of the signs), GET OFF the course, go inside to cool down and re-hydrate!
Our third and fourth ‘Ace of the Day’ are Shelly Rhone with a net 62 and Nanette Prosser with a net 64. Adrienne Oxendine and Linda Critzer are the alternates. Jean Greishaber toppled the Magnolia course record setting a new record of 79. How low can we go before we cast it in stone at the end of the year? Additionally, a ‘Hot Shot’ round of 84 was posted on the Holly Gold by Marie Gilbertson, Nancy Keel posted 78 on the Holly 1/Mag 10 Red, Jody Young had a Hot Shot 85 on the Holly Red during the Rally for a Cure, and Carol Smith shutdown Magnolia Red with an 89.
We had a great day for Rally for a Cure. Our Summer Meeting went off without a hitch thanks to Carole’s capable leadership. Sorry I couldn’t be there but the NCUSTA scheduled the Senior Tennis Championships in conflict with our meeting Congratulations to Mary Ann Smith and Pat Gannaway for being closest to the pin. Thank you all for raising $1610 for the Cure.
After 3 matches Interclub I is currently in first place by 2.5 points. Interclub II is in 4thplace after 2 matches but only 2.5 points out of first. All of our Interclub ladies are doing well against tough competition. Their next match is the beginning of August.
Our final ‘Ace of the Day’ qualifiers will be identified in the August Perspective. Sorry the submission deadline doesn’t allow them to get in the July Perspective.
Sign-up for Tarheel at Pine Valley July 11. Don’t forget Pinetop at Southern Pines on July 20th.
Remember, the PWGA only functions through the efforts of its membership. Chairing a committee or a special event is not only your way to help, but a great way to support the organization and meet and work with a lot of great women. Let Carole Roth (or any board member) know what you are interested in volunteering to chair/co-chair.
Everyone get out there and swing it. Whether the shot is straight or errant, just have fun.

NEWS, NEWS & MORE NEWS…

Thanks to all for their support of the events.
The Golf Professional Staff are again hosting the Pinewild Junior Golf Camps. The three-day camps run from 9 to 11am and cover all the basics of golf, as well as rules and etiquette.
The dates are as follows…
July…6th, 7th and 8th…18th, 19th and 20th…24th, 25th and 26th
August…9th, 10th and 11th…14th, 15th and 16th
More information can be found on the web, or by contacting the Golf Shop.
The Renovation of the front nine of the Magnolia is going well and thanks again for your patience as we implement the 27-hole rotation.
Please see the following information that may answer some questions that you may have…
Throughout the renovation of the front nine of the Magnolia Golf Course, the facility will operate in a 27-hole rotation. The 18-hole courses will be comprised of…Front 9 Holly & Back 9 Holly [Holly 1 – Holly10]…Back 9 Magnolia & Front 9 Holly [Mag 10 – Holly 1]…Back 9 Holly & Back 9 Magnolia [Holly 10 – Mag10]
So, for example, when one tees-off on the Back 9 of the Holly, and you complete the 18thhole of the Holly, proceed to the tenth tee of the Magnolia and complete the back 9 for your eighteen-hole round.
The Slope and Course Ratings for the above referenced configurations are outlined on the back of the new scorecard, and will also be posted in the Locker Rooms.
All three nines that remain open are Handicapped 1 through 9. Should one be playing a match and need to allocate strokes in the match, it should be done as follows…
The first nine that is played will always encounter the odd handicapped holes, and the second nine that is played will always encounter the even handicapped holes.
If an individual is a 13 handicap…they will receive 7 strokes on the first nine and 6 on the second nine…allocate the seven strokes on the front as they fall on holes handicapped 1 through 7, and allocate the six strokes on the back as they fall on holes handicapped 1 through 6.
For Club Events and Association Play, scorecards will be provided with the appropriate stroke allocations.
Tee Times will run in a “split tee” format, with tee times running from 7:30AM to 9:20AM, and then again from 11:50AM to 1:40PM off all three nines. This “split tee” configuration is basically designed around a two-hour pace of play for 9-holes. Please ensure that you complete your “nine” in as close to two hours as possible to facilitate a smooth transition between nines.
The Handicap Computer System is configured to accept scores based on the courses outlined above.
Posting can be done as normal, but please be careful when selecting the course configuration that you played.
The Golf Operations Staff has worked with some area clubs to provide reduced rates should one want to play elsewhere. A list of these courses and rates are available from the Golf Shop. Please note that the Golf Shop staff must make the necessary tee time reservation in order to get the reduced rate. Members must be prepared to provide Pinewild Country Club of Pinehurst membership identification at the respective Club, and are expected to conduct themselves appropriately at all times.
On Monday and Tuesday of each week, one nine may be closed for Maintenance, and to “rest” the nine. As demand for tee times increases in the fall, this schedule may change. Tee Times will be at a premium, so please ensure that “NO SHOWS” are not an issue. Club Management reserves the right to take action with respect to members who reserve tee times and do not utilize them. Additionally, as best we can, Starters will be “pairing-up” groups to ensure that 4 golfers are in a group. When reserving a tee time, or once all the players in the group are known, please let the golf shop know the names of the individuals who will be playing in the respective group, this will assist in a quicker check-in process on the day of play.
For those members who do play late in the evenings, the first tee on each of the nines will be available for play at approximately 4:00PM each afternoon. Please ensure that one checks-in with the Golf Shop prior to any play on any of the courses.
Please let us know if you have any additional questions related to the Renovation.
We once again want to remind members, their family and accompanied guests, of some of the existing Pool Rules…the Full set of rules are posted at the Pool Facility…
Proper pool attire required at all times.
– “Cover-up” required for window/snack bar service, which is located at the clubhouse. The clubhouse, including veranda, requires proper attire at all times.
