September’s TLQMC President’s Letter
Even though the season is winding down, TLQMC is still active. Considering it is summer, it can be said our club has been very active. Monday play continues to have 36-44 players each week and the Dry Heat Tournament had 38 players.
Speaking of the Dry Heat Tournament, congratulations to the following overall winners:
A-flight – 1st, McGregor and Vanderploeg, 2nd, Compton and Hirsch, 3rd, Owens and Pignato
B-flight – 1st, Arends and Stephenson, 2nd, Rutherford and Erskine, 3rd, McKenna and Prosenjak
Closest to the pin winners – Day One; Hines, Erskine, McKenna, Hammond
Closest to the pin winners – Day Two; Mercatante, Sweet, Vanderploeg, McGregor
Horserace winners – Carranza and McKenna
Between the daily payouts for first through third place, the horserace and the KP’s, 25 of the 38 entrants walked away with some sort of winnings.
The tournament and the horserace would not have gone off so smoothly without the planning and administration of Monday Events Coordinator Steve Prosenjak (filling in for the vacationing Tournament Coordinator) and Trilogy at La Quinta Golf Professional, Ed Montgomery. As usual, both of these gentlemen ran fun and efficient events.
While TLQMC continues to be very active due to the interest and participation of our members, our members would not be so active if our golf course was not in such great shape. Key Golf continues to work hard on maintaining and improving the course. The fairways and greens as close to mid-season shape as the current grasses allow. Additionally, Key Golf has established a real rough adjacent to the fairways. Unlike last year, when we were purposely hitting into the rough to avoid the fairway, that is not a good idea this year.
As for the status of the change of ownership, the process is continuing, albeit with the occasional obstacle still being raised to be overcome. However, it is still on track. If you have any specific questions about the status, please contact Tom Brown or Colleen Wick at the golf course.
In the meantime, we are looking forward to another three weeks of fun Monday Play golf events before the course closes on September 22. Besides a full over-seeding, Key Golf will also be making some repairs to cart paths and curbing. It is anticipated the course will reopen on or about November 4th.
Enjoy the rest of summer.
See you on the course,
