“Golf is a game where your greatest opponent is yourself. It’s about self-improvement; about being better today than you were last week.” — Wise golf sage

golf #33 USED

At our last Board meeting, we discussed the “closest-to-the-pin” award as it relates to a hole-in-one. It was decided that when a golfer makes a hole-in-one, he will only receive the $ 100.00 award and not the $5.00 closest-to-the-pin award. Nobody else will be eligible to get the closest-to-the-pin award on that hole.

Today’s top golfers were Richard Guzik with a 79 gross score and Peter Wright with a 62 net. Way to go guys

Don’t forget about our next away tournament on June 21, to be held at Navel Base Ventura County, formally known as the Sea Bee base in Port Hueneme. You will need a permit to get on the base, so if you haven’t applied for one yet, it may be too late since it takes about 3 weeks to get one. You can always check with James McShea, the Civilian Golf Pass Liaison @ (805) 982-4602, to see if there’s still time. Last week’s post has the cost to play (I think it’s $ 45.00). Payment goes to Ron Laufer.

Our next luncheon is scheduled for July 21, at the usual place: The Wedgewood. Due to the fact that we go in the hole (money wise) on every luncheon, and the fact that our coffers are running low, we need to increase the cost of the luncheon to $ 10.00. This is still a good deal since we get a great deli-sandwich with potato salad, a pickle, those pink onions, a drink and seconds as long as the food holds out.

For those of you who belong to another golf club in addition to Saticoy, if you paid SCGA dues at the other club you can apply for a rebate from SCGA in October. Get on the internet and go to the website: scga.org/rebate

During our Board meeting today we learned that the SCGA is going to be raising their membership costs. For this reason, beginning July 1, our club membership fees will be increasing from $ 55.00 to $ 65.00. A portion of everyone’s Saticoy membership dues are used to pay the SCGA dues. The rest is used for the benefit of the club.

Today’s top golfer was Ron Laufer. He had the best gross score with a 75 and the best net score with a 58. Way to go Ron.

RESULTS FOR ELKIN’S AWAY TOURN. 05-23-16

I’ve probably got everyone used to seeing our tournament results by the evening on the days that we play. Unfortunately I didn’t get these results until 10:30AM today, but here they are. I really like the Elkin’s Ranch course for the way it looks, but you have to watch out for those birds in the outdoor patio area by the snack bar. When Phil Youker, who was sitting at a table eating his hamburger, momentarily looked away, a bird proceeded to peck at the burger even though he was holding it in his hand. Those birds are pretty brave.

DSC_6950(sm..) This is Ron Laufer avoiding a water hazard on hole #3 on his way to becoming the top golfer of the tournament with the best gross score of 87.

DSC_6958(sm) This is the foursome of (L-R) Bob Cole, Phil Youker, Ron Laufer and me posing for a photo at hole #17.

The top golfer of our Elkins away tournament was Ron Laufer with the best gross score of 87. He also tied for the best net score of 68 with John Gonzales. Way to go guys.

Golf is won or lost one stroke at a time; much like peeling an onion one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep. (Inspired by Carl Sandburg and his quotation on why life is like an onion).

Golf 7 USED

Greetings from downtown Vernal, UT. I just got back from my granddaughter’s high school graduation in Denver, CO. It was slow going on highway 40 coming back because of all the deer that were hanging around near the roadway. I’d like to share a couple of pics with you. On the shot of the deer, I grabbed my camera as I was driving but I didn’t have time to increase the shutter speed, so it’s a bit blurry. The second pic is of highway 40 taken yesterday en route to Denver (click to enlarge).

Here’s the correct results for the 19th. I had some computer problems and when I finally got it working, the 19th results were gone form my files and I inadvertently clicked on the most recent results displayed, which turned out to be from the 12th. My apologies to all.

Golf #36

The next club luncheon is scheduled for July 21st. If you’ve signed up to play Elkins on the 23rd of this month, the last day to pay Ron Laufer is next Thursday.

Every so often, while playing in our tournaments on Thursdays, someone will bring up the subject of politics. I get enough politics from the news and from Facebook, especially during this emotionally- charged election year. I don’t know how all of you feel about this, but I’d rather just play golf and leave the politics off the course, especially when the topics deal with race or religion.

Today’s top golfers were Earl Clark with the best gross score of 85. The best net score was posted by
Don Walker with a 63. Way to go guys.
