Monthly News and Highlights…May 2013
WOW, what happened to Spring? We have moved right into Hot Summer nights!
I think the greens are coming back nicely but some still need a bit more time. I like what they have done to Hole 11, not cutting the area that has
some damage. I hope that will allow it to heal some.
Was that not a great Masters? I was pulling for the "old" guy but I can't be disappointed with the outcome. Was that not a GREAT shot on 18,
for the tie!
I hope with the Masters over and the weather great, we can get a couple more casual golfers to join the club.
For those of you that were wondering, the Scoring Computer in the spike room is back up transmitting every night. We had some wiring issues
that I was finally able to resolve. You should also see the scrolling marquee back in the spike room in a bit.

App of the Month
With more and more of us getting smartphones I thought it would be nice to start an area on our website that highlights some good golf apps.
I will try to pick two or three a month that might be helpful. I have an android phone but I think most of the apps I will be choosing are
in multiple formats.
The is one of many but I enjoy it. Golf Jokes is an easy-to-use application. Simply press the next button to obtain the next random golf
joke. Share the funny joke with friends and family through the easy Share button on Facebook, Twitter and more! New jokes added constantly
through updates. Perfect while waiting at the tee or after a great round of golf. A must-have for all golfers!
Golf Logix GPS
#1 Golf App Worldwide - 4 Years in a Row. FREE Golf GPS, 3D Courses, Scores & Stats. Golf Digest Personal Round Analysis/Lessons. Exclusive
Equipment Deals from Golfsmith. With over 2 Million Members, join the World’s Largest Golf Club for FREE! Battery Tip: To save battery
life, under App Settings set "GPS Live on Auto-Lock" to OFF and you will have no issues with battery life on the course.
In the coming months I will have a lot more apps for you including some local courses, some stores and some odd apps. FYI,
just a quick search of "golf" in the android store gets you 6807 hits. I am sure there are just as many (if not more) in the itunes store.
Please feel free to drop me a note with your "just can't live without" golf app.

Tournament Chair Report
Well we played the ball down for the first time this year and the scores came in lower than I expected. Not quite sure the reason for the
lower scores but I would have thought playing the ball down would have resulted in some higher scores especially from the higher
handicappers. They on the other hand for the most part scored well. We will be playing the ball down from now on.
Just a Reminder, DO NOT POST your Willow Park Tournament round. As I’ve mentioned in that past and indicate on the Rules/Info sheet at
each tournament, I will post all scores from our tournaments. If you post it by mistake please let me know so I can delete the duplicate.

As I had nothing better to do I monitored the pace of play of all the groups making the turn. There was one group that was 1 1/2 holes
behind making the turn. They did close the gap by the 18th hole finishing 15 minutes behind the group in front of them. I know we have
said several times that we will access for slow play but putting a plan in place was difficult. Well guess what, I have nothing to do
until I’m cleared to play again so look out. We have qualifiers coming up and you don’t want additional stokes. There will be no warning.
Our May tournament will be the 1st round of the qualifier to win a spot in the October Skins competition. The second round is scheduled for
the Sunday round in the 2 day August tournament.
Speaking of qualifiers don’t forget that for you to keep the spot you earned in the Skins or upcoming 2014 NCGA qualifiers you will have
to complete the required number of tournaments, if you don’t your spot will go to the alternate. You can of course play in any of the
designated qualifying tournaments; you just can’t qualify unless you meet the criteria. Here is the estimated criterion for each.
• For the Skins you will need to complete 5 tournaments by September 30
• For the 2014 NCGA qualifiers you will need to complete 6 tournaments by December 31. You are also required to be on the 2014 membership
roster on January 1, 2014
• To win the Club Championship you will need to completed 4 tournaments by August 31.
Some of you sent in your entry forms late and did not get in the April tournament. Please remember that the deadline is defined so I
can gather the entries and report a player count to the course 1 week prior to the tournament. There is plenty of time allowed to mail
in your entry. I usually make a last check of the mail the Saturday after the deadline so I can meet the 1 week notice to the course
on Sunday. If for whatever reason you mail it near of after the deadline please send me an email at GOLF4TCTONY@gmail.com. I will
then add you to the player count and look out for the possible late arriving entry. If you’re not sure email me.
On the other side of the fence if you have to cancel, you need to notify me as soon as possible. If you do I will roll your entry over
to be used in a future tournament. If I get no notification I will consider you a no show and you will lose your entry fee. I make my
last check for email messages at 6:00pm on Saturday. If you have to cancel late call the course early Sunday morning at least 1
hour prior to your scheduled tee time and leave a message. If you are not sure call the course Sunday morning. Better to have 2
notifications then none.
