July Rules Quiz

Happy 4th of July ladies and enjoy the quiz. From your Rules Guru – Hilary:

Ladies: Answer YES or NO to the following questions: (see below for answers)
1. A player’s ball is just off the green but 10 yards closer to the putting surface than your ball, and it’s on your chipping line. She voluntarily marks her ball to allow you to chip without interference. OK?

Yes

No

2. Your playing partner hits her ball in the woods. The ball is lost, so she drops a ball next to the point where the ball entered the woods, takes a penalty stroke, and plays on. OK?

Yes

No

3. Your opponent uses tees which are 4.5 inches long. OK?

Yes

No

4. After you sink your putt in Match play, you concede your opponent’s one-footer for par to halve the hole, but she taps in anyway. OK?

Yes

No

5. Your partner’s ball is on the green. She wants to clean it, so she puts a tee down to mark the ball’s position and picks the ball up and cleans it. OK?

Yes

No

6. You’re about to putt out for a bogey on a par 4, and you ask your match-play opponent how many strokes she has taken. She says “five,” and waits until you make the putt, then says; “No, I meant four,” which is correct. OK?

Yes

No

[scroll down for the answers]




























ANSWERS:
1.) No. The ball was lifted without a request from you. It’s a one-stroke penalty for the player, and the ball must be replaced (15.3b (2)).

2.) No. She should have taken a one-stroke penalty and played from the spot where she took her last shot (18.2b).

3.) No. A tee must be no longer than 4 inches (Definitions).

4.) Yes. In match play, this type of practice is OK, but remember a concession cannot be declined or withdrawn. (3.2b).

5.) Yes. You can use a tee to mark the position of a ball but be sure it will not interfere with the other players’ line of putt. (Definitions).

6.) No. She must not give wrong information about her score. She loses the hole (3.2d).

Advisory Board Notes

Here are my notes from today’s Advisory Board meeting:

There was a conversation about ForeTees and how currently we book one day at a time. There’s a possibility of being able to book a week at a time. Still to be decided on which method is best for the membership.

Talked about the walk-on’s – still not decided if that will be used in the future or not.

Discussed having sand bottles back on the carts – they could be sanitized each time the carts go out. This would help repair divots on the course. Of course, if people aren’t comfortable handling them, that’s fine too.

Course conditions are very good. Due to the different soil conditions on the front vs. the back different waterings are required. The clay soil needs a lot of water.

Maintenance staff is down 2 workers. Hope to hire soon.

Cart path on #7 will be repaired on Monday.

Restaurant – Hoping to do inside dining starting July 1. We don’t know what the restrictions will be yet. Mark will adjust as necessary. Workers have been informed that they may be able to come back then. Alex and Angelica are not coming back. A new snack bar person has been hired.

Membership – there have been lots of inquiries but Mark is not taking any new members for now.

Hoping to get the organized groups (18-holers, seniors, 9-holers) back in July. Not sure what the limitations will be yet.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Regards,
Donna

Not a quiz, but hopefully a few smiles!

Ladies Golf update

Hi all,

I hope you are all doing well and keeping busy. We don’t know yet when we will be back to playing golf but as far as our schedule goes, whenever we resume our normal Tuesday play days, we will pick up the schedule from that point forward. That means that anything we’ve missed in March/April will NOT be rescheduled. So the Spring Tournament is cancelled for 2020. If you already put a check in the drawer it will be shredded once I can get to them.

It has yet to be decided how play will resume at Discovery Bay. it is possible that for the first month we will not have organized groups playing (9-holers, 18-holers, seniors), and group gatherings will most likely be restricted. Nothing is decided yet and we don’t know when we will get back to our organized play. As soon as I know anything I will pass it along.

In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
Donna

WGANC FIFITIES-SIXITIES TOURNAMENT

Good Morning Ladies,
I do not know at this time if this event will be a cancellation due to COVID-19, but please review if interested.

Stay safe and healthy…
