There will be a Quarterly Meeting & Luncheon at the Wedgewood Banquet Center at the Buenaventura Golf Course on March 12, 2015 right after our Thursday golf tournament. I will be collecting the fee for the next several Thursdays. The price is the same as always, $6.00 per person and we will need at least 30 participants to get our special pricing!

The annual Darrell Downey Memorial Golf Classic will be held April 18th at Saticoy Regional. Attached is a copy of the entry form.
Quote of the week: “Through years of experience I have found that air offers less resistance than dirt”. —Jack Niclaus, on why he tees his ball high
This week’s top golfer was Frank Allison. He had the best gross score with a 79 and also tied Hal Carlson for the best net score with a 59. Good job guys.
Sorry I’m a little late posting the Elkin’s Tournament results. I had about 100 emails come through on my account Monday and the results got buried on a back page. Since they were out of sight, they ended up out of mind. My goal is to get results posted on the same day I receive them which is usually the same day of a tournament. Anyway, the top golfer for this tournament was Ron Laufer with an 84 (gross). Our golfer with the top net score was Eugene Charbonnea with a 61. Congratulations guys.
Quote of the week: “Golf is like a love affair. If you don’t take it seriously, it is no fun; if you do take it seriously, it breaks your heart.” —Arthur Daley
Congratulations to this month’s scramble champions. The foursome of Fenelon, Carlson, Wright and Foss took the win with a 65 gross score/ 54 net. The following information is being posted one more time to make sure everyone receives it. At this month’s monthly SSMGC Board meeting, the subject of maximum-handicap-index as it as it relates to skin money, came up. It was decided (voted on) that the maximum HC index for the purpose of determining a skin-win, would be capped at 36. This means that no one will have a 3-pop advantage (per hole) during a tournament. Higher handicap indexes will still be accepted for the purpose of determining net scores.
Well we made it through another great day of golfing. There’s an old fishing adage that can be tweaked to apply to golf: The worst day golfing is better than the best day pulling weeds at home. Anyway, congratulations to our top scorers this week. Richard Guzik had the best gross score with an 80 and Charles McLaughlin had the best net score with a 59.
Another great Southern California day weather wise. It was unusually warm for this being the 2nd week of February. Not only was it warm, but very windy with the east wind wreaking havoc on all of our long shots made into the wind. Congratulations to our two top golfers of the week. Ron Laufer had the best gross score with an 80. Peter Wright had the best net score with a 58. The monthly SSMGC board meeting was held today and the subject of maximum-handicap-index, as it relates to skin money, came up. It was decided (voted on) that the maximum HC index for the purpose of determining a skin-win would be capped at 36. This means that nobody will have a 3-pop advantage (per hole) during a tournament. Higher HC indexes will still be accepted for the purpose of determining net scores. This advisement will be posted again over the next few weeks to make sure it is read by all.
The next away tournament will be at Elkins Ranch Golf Course in Fillmore on Monday, March 2nd. A fee of $50.00 (check/cash) to be paid to Ron Laufer at least 10-days prior to the tournament. The fee will include course fee plus cart and prize money. If you wish to only play the round, the fee will be $41.00 (also paid to Ron). Sign up sheet will be available starting this Thursday (Jan. 29th) and each Thursday up to the week before the tournament.
Let’s have a good showing – course should be in great shape.
