A new division has been added but it is not considered when playing a Scramble or a Schamble:

Senior Ladies’ Division for ladies 70 and over. When paying your $5 on the sign up sheet you must indicate “SR” next to your name to be considered in this division. If you did not do so but wrote “SR” on your card, you will NOT be considered for this division.

Senior Ladies’ Closest to the Pin for ladies 70 and over. When paying your $5 on the sign up sheet you must indicate “SR” next to your name to be considered in this division. If you did not do so but wrote “SR” on your card, you will NOT be considered for this division. Closest to Pin for Senior Ladies is played every week.

NEW…EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY…if your ball is hit out of bonds (white stakes), you do not take another shot from the tee off. Proceed to the point of entry, count a stroke and shoot from there. This applies to all holes with white stakes.

TEMPORARY GREEN ON HOLE 3….once your ball lands in the circle, add a stroke and proceed to next hole. No need trying to putt until you sink the ball.

$305 was collected and as agreed upon, $1 from the $5 is kept for our year end wrap up night.

It could be used to save putts if your string was long enough… and no stroke was added to your score…when you used the string, the string was cut and you continued using it until it is too short or there is no string left. Scissors were attached to each flag

pole. The string helped me look good and ladies let me tell you that it’s not easy to dolol…
