President's Report
Hello Members,
lease update
Here we are at the 11th hour and East Bay Parks appear to have little interest keeping Willow Park up and running. We, the membership, need to keep the pressure on! We need to attend meetings (CV MAC Board, EBMUD and EBRPD Meeting). We need to email anyone and everyone to get the word out about this situation!

I will update you with any new information that I learn so please check back.

Lease information had taken over the homepage so I moved it to its new home. Click the "Latest News" icon for lease updates.

Lease information last updated: July 23

Tournament Chair Report
Well the 4 club tournament is over with many of you shooting well below your usual score again asking the question “Why do you need 14 clubs?”. As a comparison our last stroke play tournament in April the average gross score for that tournament was 92. The average score for the 4 club stroke play tournament was a 95. As you can see there is not much difference so perhaps some of you may want to consider taking a few clubs out of your bag.

Our July tournament will once again be a stroke play Net flight competition with everyone signed up participating in this completion. It will also be the 1st round of our NCGA and Skins qualifiers. They will be run as separate competitions with sign-up sheets on the first tee. There will be more details on the first tee but here is a brief summary of each. They are still a work in progress so they may have a few changes by tournament day so make sure you read them before signing up and starting your round.

2015 NCGA 2 person qualifying - This is a 2 person net combine best ball competition over 2 rounds. There will be a sign up sheet and more details on the first tee. If you are not signed up you will not be deemed to be qualifying. You will be allowed to pick you partner but must do so prior to the second player starting and before the first player finishes the front 9. If you don’t have a partner sign up as a single and I will pair you with another single that signed up. All players qualifying for this event must play from the Blue Tee area designated for the tournament, complete the required number of tournaments by year end, play both qualifying rounds and be on the active membership roster on January 1, 2015. Those of you who sign up and have an index above 18.4 are welcome to try and qualify but your index will be lowered to 18.4 for the qualifying rounds.

2015 NCGA 4 person qualifying - This is an individual 2 round combined net competition with the team chosen based upon the parameters set forth in the information sheet. There will be a sign up sheet and more details on the first tee. If you are not signed up you will not be deemed to be qualifying. All players qualifying for this event must play from the Blue Tee area designated for the tournament, completed the required number of tournaments by year end, play both qualifying rounds and be on the active membership roster on January 1, 2015. Those of you who sign up and have an index above 18.4 are welcome to try and qualify but your index will be lowered to 18.4 for the qualifying rounds.

October Skins qualifying – It is presumed everyone entered in the tournament wishes to try and qualify so there is no need to sign up for this event. If you do not want to try and qualify please let the TC know as soon as you can so your scores will not be used. Please remember all players must play both qualifying rounds.

Presuming the course conditions do not change dramatically from what they are right now we will be playing the ball down. This could change at the last minute and there will be some exceptions should we play it down so I again suggest you read the rules/information sheet displayed on the first tee prior to starting.

The NCGA 4 person qualifier was held on June 30 and July 1. The team of Al Tuialuuluu, Joe Johnson, Brady Deitrick and Mike Desanto finished in 4th place just 3 shots out of the qualifying spot for the championship round. They played well on the first day positioning them within striking distance of the leader. In the second round they all encounter trouble with a team score of bogey on the 134 yard par 3 15th hole, a double bogey on the 180 yard par 3 16th hole and a bogey on the 323 yard par 4 17th hole. Once again a valiant effort but once again it’s “Wait until next Year”.

50-50 raffle winner: Greg O’Connell

As you know I said I would mention the slow groups who got behind and did not catch up. The identifying of these groups is not just my call but also of your fellow golfers on the course. If a group is reported as “Slow” they will not be mentioned unless it was verified and confirmed. This tournaments “Slow” play group consisting of Robert Henneuse, Ken Mendelsohn, Willie Brown and Hugh Williams. They were observed to be 2 holes behind playing the 12th and again while playing the 15th.

Your TC,
Tony Paniagua
