A note about Posting scores

Hi all,

Just a reminder, as we are all getting used to the new Maximum Score Hole – when submitting your Tuesday scorecards, we need you to put your postable score under MHS.

If you don’t stroke on a hole you can take a double, if you get one stroke you can take a triple and if you get 2 strokes you can take a quadruple. Or, Par plus two, plus your strokes (pops). I will pop the scorecards so you can easily see where you get your strokes.


Info on the new World Handicap System

I have attached a document that the Trilogy golf group put together. It is another well written explanation of how to determine where you get your strokes using the new World Handicap System.


Silverado Open Day on March 17 & Villages Open Day on March 19

Hi Ladies,

See attached for information. I’m not sure how long the Open Day program will continue as attendance has been dwindling. Take advantage of these great deals while we still have them!

The Open Day at the Villages is an event where you can be paired with a friend, or sign up as a foursome. Being paired is an option, not a requirement. Let me know your preferences when you get back to me.

Please reply by Feb 24 if you want to attend either or both Open Days.

Notes from the January Advisory Board

Here are my notes from the January Advisory Board meeting.

Janet McCleery | janmccleery

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” ~St. Augustine~

  • #6 bunker, new fabric, drain fixed, sand replaced
  • #4 front bunker – the next project for drains, then #15 on the right.
  • #12 has a high water table. Will try to raise the soil (with a top dressing, though this process takes a while).
  • Club has purchased a new 72″ John Deere mower.
  • Approximately 73 rakes have been purchased, about 70 more to go. Have tried to keep the best of what we have until those arrive.
  • Our web host provider is going out of business, looking for a new vendor.
  • We have a new sous chef
  • State of the club letter should be coming out soon from Mark.

We had one birdie today by Amelia Thornton on #6.

Closest to the pin winners:
Cindy Aafedt on #7 at 31’4″
