Monthly News and Highlights…November 2015
President's Report

Hello Members,

Wow...November.....winter is here.....Thanksgiving....and nearly years end.

With the uncertainty and major transition beginning at the end of last year, this has certainly been an eventful year. For the most part, we (the club) have come through it pretty well. I think the course is looking better than ever, with major improvements in many areas of the golf course and facilities.

Update:  EBRPD released the new RFP for the property on Nov. 13. EBPark's RFP link

The club's 2016 membership renewal period is underway. The fee is the same as last year. $109 if you are a club member this year, new membership is $115. This fee will increase to $119 and $125 after December 28, 2015. Your early renewal helps your board with budgetting for the upcoming year. Plus why pay more if you don't have too. Please also remember that checks should be made out to WPGC.

I created a file (2016_wpgc_events.ics) that you can use to import our Tournament Dates into most calendar programs. To import it, do an internet search such at "import .ics into....(iphone, android or Google Calendar)" to find directions for your calendar program.
Standard warning...use at own risk.

Please still make payment to "WPGC/WPMC"
Your Board and our Treasurer have asked me to remind you that while the course has a new name, our club does not. Please continue to make your checks out to "WPMC". The board will be discussing a name change at the next several meetings to address some issues with changing the name. We will keep you informed of the progress and send out official notice if and when the name change occurs.

2016 Membership: 68 Members / Goal 150
We are still looking for more so please pass the word. Membership forms are available on the website, above the computer in the Pro Shop and on the Bulletin Board on the wall in the Bar annex.

Steve Falzone, President

Tournament Chair Report

The skins competition is completed. The big winner on the Gross side was Dennis Klein with 10 skins. The Big winner on the Net side was Robin Paniagua with 7 skins. The rest of the field played the usual Net scoring with 4 flights. Congratulations to all the winners and condolences to all the losers (yes I was one of them).

The October slow group award goes to the second group consisting of Robin Paniagua, Joe Johnson, George Pritchard and Ron Haslam. Frankly I expected the group to fall behind a bit but was shocked that it was 3-4 holes for the whole back nine. The second group finished 45 minutes behind first group and finished the round in around 4:35. The early groups are expected to set the pace of play and finish much sooner than that. The scores did not indicate they were in much trouble so I can only presume they thought they needed/could take extra time on each shot. It is expected that every group is to play “ready” golf and make an attempt to catch up and finish within 10 minutes of the group in front of them.

Hopefully you all noticed the Red(Lateral Water Hazard), Yellow(Water Hazard) and White(Out of bounds) stakes throughout the course as well as the new Blue tee area on the 9th hole. As I mentioned in last month’s article the stakes were put out with the intent of identifying the various situations. They will continue to be used for the foreseeable future.

The course has aerated all the greens October 19-20. I played on October 24 and they were still rough but playable. It appears that barring any unforeseen complication they might not take as long as in the past to get back to normal.

Our November tournament will be the Gold(Red), White and Blue. You must play 6 holes from each tee in any order you wish as long as it’s only 6. More details to follow.

The 2016 schedule is completed and on the website. Should something unforeseen occur and necessitate a change to date, time or format I will notify you as soon as it occurs.

Remember that this is the renewal period for our 2016 season. The renewal(a club member in 2015) membership fee for 2016 is currently $109. The new membership fee is $115. This fee will increase to $119 and $125 after December 28, 2015. This allows us to get everyone in by January 1 for as you know the increases is a result of the NCGA chargeing a “late” fee of $10 after the first of the year. We look forward to seeing you all in 2016. Please also remember that checks should be made out to WPMC and mail to the address below.

50-50 raffle winner: Lou Lozano

Your TC,
Tony Paniagua
