May President’s Newsletter
First, even though it seems like ancient history, I must congratulate the winners of the 2016 Member Guest tournament. First place overall in A flight was Bob Campbell and Jerry Gregory with a score of 119 while first place overall in B flight was Jim King and his son Nathan with a score of 124. Bob and Jerry had a 5 stroke margin while Jim and Nathan won in a three way card off. Congratulations as well to all of you who shared in the generous payouts.
As I stated in my recent email, the 2016 Tee Box decision has been well accepted and appears to have given all members a better chance to enjoy the game of golf here at Trilogy. Playing from two flights with four different tees has and will allow us all to play from a yardage suited to our games. The number of players are fairly even through the two flights. The Hogan flight consisting of the Blue and Blue/Gold combo tees has 74 players (19 Blue & 55 Blue/Gold) while the Palmer flight has 86 players (68 Gold & 16 Gold/White tees). The handicap indexes are distributed evenly as we with the average index per tee as follows: Blue 8.9, Blue/Gold 13.2, Gold 19.9 and Gold/White 27.4. About a 5-6 stroke cap from tee to tee…just a little something for you stat junkies to think about. Along with the new tee box choices we have new hole handicap allocations. These may seem strange at first but numbers don’t lie. Approximately 800 cards were used to formulate these allocations. Relax and enjoy the strokes.
If you haven’t noticed there are now drop zones on holes #6,#9 and #18. These are for shots that have gone through the green and into the lake. They were implemented because if you just drop the ball where it crossed into the hazard you would be dropping closer to the hole.
Finally this Board, as others before it, has been wrestling with the pace-of-play problem. To that end we have formed a Pace-of-Play committee consisting of myself, Secretary Greg Henry and Membership Chair Ray Dorfman. Our goal, through scorecard timing, interviews and review of player comments, is to identify any individual that continually causes a foursome to finish two and three holes behind the foursome in front of them. If and when that individual is satisfactorily identified he will be contacted and interviewed by the committee. If the behavior continues he will be suspended from playing in Monday and or tournament play for one week up to a month. Our goal here is to fairly deal with this ever present issue while promoting and enhancing the enjoyment of all players on the course.
Next time you’re out on the course knocking it around take a moment and give a nod to the late Bob Levings…one of the good ones.
