Don’t forget about the club barbecue taking place tomorrow at the Mountain View Golf Course. Happy hour and the live music start at 5PM with dinner starting at 6PM. It should be a beautiful afternoon and evening. If you haven’t signed up already, come on out and pay at the door. Also, if you have a piece of golf equipment, or a golf-related item that you no longer want collecting dust in your home, you can donate it for inclusion in our raffle. If it’s a nice warm day, I’m going to try to set up the music equipment outside in the patio so as to keep the noise level down inside. Hope to see you all there with your golf “fish” stories.
The top gross-score golfers of today’s tournament were Frank Allison and myself. We both had an 81. I was doubly lucky today in that I had the best net score of 58. I’ve been steadily improving since I purchased a new set of “fitted” clubs from The Bunker golf store. Plus I bought a laser finder too.

I wasn’t able to post Thursday’s results until now (Fri. 3:30 PM) because I didn’t have time this morning.
At Thursday’s Board meeting we passed a resolution which has to do with the prize money that is won during tournament play. Anyone who is not a current member, or any member who has not paid his annual dues by the required deadline, will not be eligible to win prize money.
We will be having a club luncheon on May 18th following our Thursday tournament. It will NOT be held at the Wedgewood. It will be held at Domino’s Pizza, 9410 Telephone Rd. It’s located at the intersection of Telephone Rd. and Petit Ave. in the S/W corner, which is same corner where Ralph’s used to be. No need to pay anyone up front. If you go, you can pay for your own lunch when you get there. I hear they also have a banquet room for our meeting.
Don’t forget about the club barbecue on the 28th of this month. I agreed to play music on that day, but I have to go in for a colonoscopy in the morning, so if for some reason I can’t make it, you’ll know why.
This week’s top golfers were Ron Laufer with the best gross score of 80. Both Ron Laufer and Don Walker tied for the best net score of 63. Way to go guys

I like this quote as it applies to golf. “Don’t wish it were easier. Wish you were better.” — Jim Rohn: American entrepreneur, author, and global motivational speaker who mentored such notables as Mark R. Hughes (founder of Herballife), Tony Robbins (Life Coach), and Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup book series).
I thought my knees would be the first thing to go, but it was my wife.
It looks like we only had 20 golfers turn out today for the tournament. Hopefully everyone is staying healthy. Its no fun being “red-tagged” and out-of-service. On another note, Jack Fenelon informed me that George Rose shot his age for the second week in a row. Way to go George. I didn’t know you were 61 years old. Maybe he meant his gross score.
The top golfers of today’s tournament were Smokey Yanez (that would be a cool name for a jazz musician) with a gross score of 83. The top net score was shared by George Rose and Dom Dinielli (61). Way to go guys.

Dear fellow gofers,
Sorry for the delay in getting the scores posted this week. I had a kidney stone attack in the afternoon and was in ER all night. It’s still on-going. If I end up back at the hospital I’m going to take my putter and some balls so I can practice.
I just heard that I posted the skins results twice by mistake. Must have been the drugs. Here are the missing results.

The winning team of today’s scramble was the team of Merriman, Jones, Dinielli and Karas. They had a 67 gross score and a 55 net score. Way to go guys.
When I received today’s scores from Jack Fenelon, he wrote, “At the last minute this morning we discovered we left Ron Moon off any team. Phil had him play with my foursome, so we played as a five-some. After the game I added Ron to my group so his handicap was used to calculate our team handicap.” I have a couple of questions regarding this which I’ve sent to Jack for clarification.

Here are a few announcements: The Darrell Downey Tournament is scheduled for March 25th. It’s a fundraiser for scholarships, so if your not busy on that day, sign up and come out and play. The Ojai Valley “away” round is scheduled for Mon March 27th. It won’t actually be a tournament. You just sign up per the previous instructions and show up and play. Our club barbecue is scheduled for April 28th at the Mountain View Golf Course. Our club luncheon is scheduled for May 18th. The location is to be announced.
This week’s top golfer was Jack Fenelon with the best gross score (85). We also had three golfers that tied for the best net score (71). They were: George Rose; Charles McLaughlin and David Soriano. Way to go guys.
Dick Kohnmann emailed a new club roster to me. I had a little trouble opening the file, but I finally got it posted in the members page of our website. Let me know if you have trouble seeing it.

NOTE: I just received the results of the Mountain View Tournament today (Wed) at 11:05am.
Regarding last week’s results, Jack Fenelon sent me a revised version which I’ve already added to last week’s post with an explanation.
The top golfer of Monday’s away tournament was Frank Allision with an 89 gross score. There were too many golfers that tied for the best net score of 71 to list individually. Way to go guys.

Sorry for the delay in getting the results out this week. I got a little busy this morning. The top golfers for this week’s tournament were Patrick Reeves and John Gonzales. Patrick had the best gross score with an 80 and he also tied John for the best net score of 62. Way to go guys.
Jack Fenlon sent me revised versions for the regular results and the skins results because there were a couple of discrepancies in the first versions. He left out the scores for Chuck McLaughlin and Ron Carpenter. This affected the final outcome for the “C” flight. He also gave Phil Youker a skin by mistake. This also changed the skins outcome. I left the old versions as a reference.
