Member/Guest Day.....

The weather turned out just beautiful, once again proofing how often the forecasts are incorrect. Despite the negative forecast, we had 19 members bring out 19 guests to show off their Home course.  We partook in a continental breakfast of Ham sliders, doughnut holes, fruit, home made cookies, coffee and juice, and of course a keg was on the porch.  Members played a two person scramble with their guest, then drew another team for a combined score for a foursome. Prizes were awarded for low score twosome, and low score foursome.
Luck of the draw plays a big part in this format. One can go from under par, to over par easily. But it was all for fun for the members and to showcase the club for potential new members.  A 2012 social membership was awarded to the guest with the low score for twosome. Welcome aboard Devon......
Jeff and the crew worked very hard (as usual) to get the course in great shape for the event. I heard nothing but compliments on the conditions of the course.  So I do believe it was a success. Thank you Jeff.
Your the BEST!

Now it's time to start thinking about the next event.
The 1st annual St. Bernard Skills Challenge will be held this Saturday May 19th.
This event will offer different Skills shots that will award points as to the difficulty of the skill choice.
Sounds complected  I know, but its posted in the club house, and explains the Challenge.
Special prizes, 50/50 raffle, food and drink specials and much much more. Hope your calendar is free that day.

It looks like the rest of the week will be gorgeous. I think the Monday Night Teezers and the Tee Timers will finally get in their first official league rounds with out the threat of/and or rain.......Oy!  The other leagues have been fairly lucky with the weather and have started out just fine. Lets hope the trend will continue.
Here's looking forward to good spring/summer......and a happy GOLF year for all!!!  Ti Aimo......
See You soon....

Personal Note:
I lost a dear friend of mine this last week. Lynell Deviney passed away without warning...She was a kind hearted, beautiful,  loving young woman who many loved. I will miss her dearly. I just wanted to acknowledge my condolences once again on this blog to her family and loved ones.
