June Advisory Board minutes

June Advisory Board meeting minutes.

The trees and bushes have been trimmed outside the Fairway room and the dead one will be removed soon.

“Handicap access only” signs will be placed on certain fairways where cart traffic is not normally allowed. Instructions on how to drive on these
areas will be given to the members who are allowed to have handicap flags. It is estimated that less than 6 members will qualify.

Ed Turman has generously made holders for the pins with American flags so it will be easier to avoid laying the flags on the greens.

Drought problems. Wetting agents are working well and will be re-applied in a month. In areas the Poa grass is stressing and
sod will be replaced in certain areas close to some greens. Due to this extra work the leveling of tee boxes has been postponed.

The 30 hp pump in the pump house needs replacing. Cost approx. $10,000.

Zak has left to go back to college and has been replaced with Frank who has previous Pro shop experience at Deer Ridge/Shadow Lakes.

The water fountain on hole #5 has been repaired.

The Corena Green event will be next month.

Membership inquiries are up this month.

Jenelle is looking for replacement for Mary in the bar and has employed a new server.

Water will be only given to diners upon request only.

Sick leave accrual will begin July 1st for employees with over 90 days of service.

Mouse pads are being given to members who play liar’s dice in the grill to attempt to reduce their noise level.

A new counter will be installed in the Ladies locker on June 29th.

It was requested that new faucets be added as well or at least the existing ones be cleaned better.

It was requested that the faucets, sink, grout and soap dispenser in the ladies bathroom outside the Pro shop be cleaned better.

Mark wanted to let the Sunday couples’ group know that the Management is extremely willing to accommodate them eating at the Club after their play but they must
co-ordinate their plans with him or Jenelle. The dining room may be previously booked with events that day making efficient service difficult or impossible.
Joanne Leete said that she will communicate this to the group as she is a participant.


Central Valley Team Play report

From Bonnie – Way to go girls!

As I’ve stated in meetings, we have a tough time in this league, but you sure wouldn’t know it by our last two matches. Playing against Del Rio June 2, we won 4.5 points (out of 6 possible), and this past Tuesday our opponents were Spring Creek. We won 5.5 points, the most points by any team for the day, and each of us took home the winnings – a sleeve of balls. Fun! We are now right in the middle of the pack, ranked 5 out of 9 teams. See attached spreadsheet for the nitty gritty. The latest spreadsheet is always posted on our website for future reference.

Players this year, in no specific order, have been Gay Wold, Jeanne Zwemer, Jill Chase, Patty Uyeno, Frances Shipilov, Hilary Frigillana, Rochelle Baxley, Peggy Schuitemaker, Deborah Veatch, Charlene Kleiner, Shelly Morgan, Becky Frazier, Chris Myall, Myra Buckman, Sandy Smith, Joann Smith, Cathy Houston, Dana Wardstrom, Cindy Renshaw, and myself. Thank you all!

We have 2 more matches, both on Mondays, July 13 at Elkhorn and August 31 at Oakdale. Let me know if you’re interested in playing and I will make every effort to fit you in.

Thanks, Bonnie

No matter what flight you were in, I think the scores were close for all the ladies.

We had 36 ladies sign up and one had to pull out due to medical reasons. But only 5 ladies played two out of the three days and I believe it was for some unforeseen reasons. So THANK YOU for scheduling these three days to participate. It was wonderful to see all the ladies play in this tournament.


Special Guest Day Info – Sept 29th

Below are 2 flyers for the Special Guest Day Sept 29th. I included one flyer to send to a guest(s) or a group and one flyer is for you.

All guests must have a ghin number, if their handicap is higher than an index of 33.8 (USGA) or our course handicap of 36, they will play at a 36. When registering you will be asked for their ghin # so make sure you get it from your guest.

My ultimate goal is to have members mix it up with other women so you get a chance to meet other lady golfer. If your guests only want to play with you, that will be allowed, I will not say no to anyone, this is a “for fun event”!

Any questions you can give me a call or Barbara Mensch the Co-Coordinator.


Diablo Team play update

WE have had our first 2 matches of the season. April 9 at Orinda and April 14, we hosted at Discovery Bay.

Our opponent at Orinda was Rossmoor. Our player were Annette, Lin, Cathy Houston, Jenny, Patty, Shelly, Cathy Fancey and Jeanne. Weather was really nice and we did ok. Patty and Shelly played played great and won 21 total points. Annette and Lin 18 points, and Cathy F and Jeanne 16 points and Cathy H and Jenny 11 points. We wish we could have done a little better but that’s golf!

On April 14 at Discovery Bay our opponent was Castlewood. Players were Annette, Lin, Dana, Cathy H, Becky, Jenny, Patty and Shelly. Dana and Cathy and Becky and Jenny had great matches and won 22 points and 21 points. Patty and Shelly did ok and won 15 points but Annette and Lin had a rough day and only won 12 points. Those Castlewood A girls could not miss. I did almost get into a fight with them on the 15th green. I was putting for par and they were in with par so they asked me why I was putting, they thought I was laying 5 and they had won the hole. I told her no i was laying 4 and explained my 4 shots to get there. She told me there was no way I could be there in 4 because she had hit two great shots and I couldn’t have possibly been as far as she was. Really!! We argued for about 45 seconds and she kept giving me this look like I was a big cheater. Then she said oh ok whatever, I hope you make the putt. I did make the putt and I won that half point!!!

Our next match is at Castlewood on April 30th and we have to play against Castlewood again. You play the same team at your course and at their course. So I will be seeking my revenge.

Right now we are in 5th place gross, and somewhere near the bottom in net. There are 10 teams in our league, Orinda, Discovery Bay, Castlewood, Moraga, Round Hill, Crow Canyon, Rossmoor, Diablo, Contra Costa and Blackhawk.

thanks Annette
