Monthly News and Highlights…February 2018

President's Report
Hello Members,

On behalf of our board let me wish each of you a very “Happy New Year”!

Course Conditions:
I think the course is looking in a pretty good condition considering what time of year it is.
- The greens show damage in spots. I hope that will be an area of focus this winter.
- #9 a bit concerned about the drainage ditch across the fairway. One good rain and the fairway will be flooded. Also, another wet area from irrigation leaks at the 100 yard marker.

2018 Membership Drive:
I have worked with Touchstone about some course specific incentives for 2018.
Here is what we have so far:
10% on most items in the Pro Show. The will special order practically anything at competitive prices plus a golf club discount.
Now until the end of the year, anyone who renews will get a free weekday (Monday-Thursday) round. You will get a certificate to your email.

The NCGA has increased the fees charged to the golf clubs for membership in 2018. Your governing board of the club has decided at this time not to pass this increase on to our membership so our membership fees will not be increased for 2018. Renewal rate will be $115, New Membership rate will be $125 and Associate rate will be $65(limited to only 2 tournaments). Sadly, please remember that if your membership is not received or at least post marked by December 26 you will be deactivated from the club membership.

I would like to take a moment to ask for your help in getting our membership back, invite a friend, spouse or associate to join the golf club.

2018 Membership: Renewal of 2017 members for 2018 - $115
New memberships - $125
Associate Membership (limited to 2 tournaments) - $65
"Come play with a Board Member":
"Come play with a Board Member” on Sunday Morning for 18 holes of golf. This is an open play format for any member who wants to play on Sunday without the need to arrange your own foursome. This is limited to 6 spots on a first come first server bases for our 7am and 7:08am tee times (not available tournament Sundays). FYI, we usually finish around 11'ish so most of the day is still yours.  Depending on response, we might modify the “first come, first server” to give priority to members that have not play in the prior weeks. Please email “info@willowparkgolfclub.org” to reserve your spot. This is a great opportunity to have some fun and to have your voice be hear. If you "Beat a Board Member" think of the bragging rights. ;-)

2018 Membership: 65 Members / Goal 150
We are still looking for more members, 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. We look forward to seeing you on the course next year. Why not invite a friend too!

2018 Tournament Calendar Import:
I created a file (2018_wpgc_events.ics) [revised 09/27] that you can download & use to import our Tournament Dates into most calendar programs. To import, do an internet search such as "import .ics into....(iphone, Android or Google Calendar)" to find directions for your calendar program. Standard warning...use at your 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.

Steve Falzone, President

Tournament Chair Report

The January tournament is in the books. Unlike last year the course and weather cooperated. When I arrived at the course at 6:15 the temperature was actually cool but comfortable. The closer we got to starting then once we started it seemed to get colder especially when playing holes 4, 5, 6 and 7. Oh well it is winter and cold weather does go along with winter.

The course is in pretty good shape with the greens running faster than they have in years. We can sure use more rain so I do have to hope February and March are a bit wetter months than December and January were.

As you know on the 9th hole the Blue Tee box was temporarily moved to the White tee box area for our tournaments. This was due mostly because of the 9th fairway having water main breaks and flooded most of the time in what is usually the landing area. Although they have fixed the leaks and the weather has been dry we will continue using the temp Blue tee location for the time being. I have not made up my mind yet if we should return or make the current Temp area permanent. It does add substantial yardage to the hole and is a disadvantage to the short/medium length hitters who must play from the blue tees and have to hit 3 really good shots to get to or near the green. I’m open on the subject so if want to voice your opinion let me know next time you see me.

There were lots of comments regarding January’s pin locations. I will say that some were in some challenging places but I thought the only truly unfair placement was on the 6th green. The course has been notified and has promised to be more understanding when choosing the pin locations in the future.

Slow play is still an issue. I thought after December’s tournament where pace of play was pretty good that things would be great in 2018. Apparently I was wrong as it appears the only reason play was good in December may have been that I did not play and was monitoring play throughout the day. Remember you will be judged on where you are in relationship to the group in front of you when you completed your 18th hole. The expectations for pace of play will be set at a higher standard for 2018. If you don’t believe I will penalize you guess again.
