March 2022 Oracle

Starter Shack

Enough with the rules of golf. If you don ’ t know how to repair a divot by now, you didn ’ t click on the video we provided on the Daily Planner. The season is in full swing and the weather has been good for playing on either the Big 18 or the Small 9 (as it is now known).

Hours of Operation 8AM - 4PM DAILY

Early opening on Tuesday & Thursday 7:30AM

Just sign up on ForeTees or see Remington at the Starter Shack by noon the day before. I ’ ll be selling 50/50 raffle tickets. One of the biggest events is CAN/AM week . Golf CanAm photos and reporting will appear in the April issue of the “ Oracle ”. Tuesday and Thursday morning golf will continue through March. Lastly, we are sad to say good - bye to Remington, our first Director of Golf. He ’ ll be leaving us to continue his job in Colorado. We certainly want to thank him for his hard work the past 3 years getting us through the software systems of making tee times and entering handicaps, and also helping the Golf Committee set up the teams and payouts for the many tournaments. He even ran the Golf Committee meetings during COVID. I have to admit, there were some hiccups, but his handling of the tournaments and the Starter Shack duties were unwavering. Thank you and good luck, Remington. We ’ ll miss you. Until next time …. Submitted by Deanna Joe, Secretary

As you can see, it was a fun and colorful Sweetheart Tournament held over 2 days that had 280 golfers trying to score low. You can find the results at the Starter Shack. Thank you Virginia & Alan Gayken for your help in organizing this event. And of course, Krystal and Sean, Ernesto, Angela and Debbie and Lisa McKay and her decorating crew. However, the most exciting yet tense golf has been the end of January and beginning of February whereby the Tuesday Fun Scramblers and Thursday Best Ballers were hoping for a Hole In One. 144 players (8 on a team) were trying for that magic drive. If you heard the screaming on the course Tuesday, the 8th, Phil Sanstrum aced hole 5 and won $1300! It costs $5 to play with $1 going toward the HIO pot and $4 to payouts. Come out and try it some time.

Phil provided anyone who wanted to indulge, in a celebratory drink! Thanks Phil!

Upcoming MARCH Tournaments are: Club Championship on March 4 & 5 Farewell Tournament on March 17
