Monthly News and Highlights…Febuary 2016
Here we are in the dog days of winter. Although the much needed rain is great for the area and state, it has put a damper on the course.
For the most part the course has been pretty playable. The creek has been flowing within its backs, with only one exception. Carts
have been allowed most days with a few exceptions and the greens have been rolling well.
Great to see when have gained some new members. I look forward to seeing you at our tournaments. I am hoping the last few members
who haven't renewed yet will get those checks in soon.
The EBRPD hasn't given us any update as to the RFP. Hopefully, we will have some news regarding the long term leasee sometime this
month. Of course I will let you know when I hear anything.
Our TC created a survey to gauge your interest in an Away Tournament this year. You should have received an email with the link to
the survey. Another reminder will be sent out a day or two before the survey ends. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey,
as the results will determining if we will revise our "Away Tournament".
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: 93 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.

Tournament Chair Report
Well we started the New Year much like we ended the old year with a cancelled tournament. As the vast majority of you will
not play without a cart our policy is that if carts are not allowed then the tournament will be cancelled. Well for January
the weather was acceptable to play in but the course was so wet they did not allow carts so we had to cancel it. Hopefully
we will have better luck in February.
The players who have credits from the December tournament and those that signed up and paid for the January tournament will
automatically be entered in the February tournament. It is presumed all of you will want to play in February so unless you
contact me otherwise I am including you in the February player count. Let me know at the email address below if you wish to
be excluded for February and have your credit applied to March. There is plenty of room for those with no credit on the
books and wish to play so send in your entry by the deadline to get in.
I have made a format change for the February tournament. Originally it was scheduled to be our 2 person 6-6-6 team tournament.
As we haven’t played in a while I decided to make the February tournament a regular individual Net flight tournament and
move the 6-6-6 team event to April.
A survey went out in a broadcast email recently to gauge your interest in an away tournament sometime this year. I hope you
took a few minutes to take the survey as the results will go a long way in determining if I should look into putting one
together or not.
As I mentioned in last month’s newsletter I have come up with a “Tournament Index” that will be used to compare against your
NCGA index each month. The tournament index is based on your scores from the tournaments you played in a rolling 12 month
period. What is calculated will be a contributing factor into what handicap you will be assigned for each month’s tournament.
While you won’t necessarily play using your “Tournament Index” the difference if great enough may result in your NCGA index
being lowered based upon a formula for the resulting differential. As I mentioned other clubs are starting to do something
along these lines and the NCGA recommends it as well.
Pace of play for our tournaments will be 4:25. We of course have no control over the groups put out in front of us so if
that contributes to us not able to meet the target time then there is of course no issue. This however does not mean you
can fall back several holes from the group in front of you. No matter what the situation is you are still held accountable
to do whatever is necessary to minimize gaps and be in the proper position to the group in front of you. This includes the
option to let the group or groups behind you play through so if applicable please do so. Don’t expect a warning for slow
play as there won’t be one.
There are still quite a few of you who have not renewed for 2016. I presume this is an oversite and your check is in the
mail. Renewal in now $119 and New Membership is $125
