Welcome to 2023 and the Men’s Club at Foothills! Lots of changes to
fill you in on so let’s get started. First off, your 2023 TMC@F board consists of a couple of brand new never served before members, a couple of served before but been off the board for awhile members, a couple of been on the board for at least a year or two and a couple of been on the board since before electricity. All in all a really good mix. And of course me. Some things, like a bum’s underwear, never change. Once again, no one was willing to run for President, so you got stuck with me. Some people never learn.
There are some changes at the golf course as well. District residents
can now make a tee time 10 days in advance. In addition, you can make a tee time 30 days in advance by paying rack rate plus $10 per golfer. Rates are going up $3 per 18.
We are going to tighten up the special request policy for tee times.
We had so many special requests for tee times the last 2 years that it was adding up to an hour or more to set up the tournaments. With a very few exceptions, we are going back to the policy that you must play within your flight. Exceptions to that will primarily be for the benefit of the club, i.e. moving a tee time for a volunteer so we can get certain jobs done such as manning the check in table.
Finally, a reminder that the times printed on your scorecard are the
MAXIMUM allowable times. If you are more than 15 minutes behind the group in front of you, please try and close the gap, even if you are within the matrix. We had several tournaments last year where a group in the first few tee times would come in 20 minutes or more behind the group ahead of them, but still barely under 4 ½ hours. This results in everyone trying to play catch up the rest of the day. There were several times that the only thing keeping us from being penalized as a club were the COVID times being open. At some point the district may no longer allow those times to go vacant.
Well enough for now, looking forward to seeing you all on the course!
Fairways and Greens,
Membership signup for 2023 is now available for all returning members and new members. Membership dues have increased by $8 because of an increase in GHIN handicap fees to the club. As always the sooner you renew your membership helps the board in planning for the new season.
2023 tournament schedule is now set and posted.
