2022 Club Championship Winners

Trish Hall Daniel Garcon being presented the trophy by Remington Post Alice DeHaas HIO winner

Due to Remington ’ s departure and the failure to hire his replacement, our Farewell Tournament was rescheduled earlier than planned. Over 140 players signed up to play, enjoying donuts and coffee in the morning, a complimentary bar on the course (Thanks, Kristi, our bartender), and a sandwich lunch from Costco. A large box of Cheez - Its was presented to Remington as a farewell gift. This is his favorite snack. It should keep him fed until he gets to Colorado. In the meantime, Management will be searching for a new head of golf operations person. We look forward to working with him or her next season. The Golf Committee will be focusing on a few items next season besides helping our professional with the tournaments. One is pace of play. We want all golfers to have a good time, but golfers need to be aware of pace of play. Your having a good time does not mean the groups behind you are having a good time if holes ahead of you are open because of your slow play. Let ’ s be sure everyone is having a good time. Now that COVID - 19 seems to be in recession, a Player ’ s Assistance Program (formerly Golf Marshal) will be implemented next season, not only to patrol the course in case of any emergency, but to also help slower players maintain a decent pace of play. If you ’ re interested in volunteering, come see us next season. Other items on the agenda—getting tee times, adjusting the dress code, finding my replacement. Oh, the last one was just a joke. I ’ m staying on for another 2 years. Someone needs to take the minutes, provide you with refreshments, and make golfing here at ORPS a good experience. So, have a safe summer. See you when I see you.

However, before I sign off I hope you enjoyed all the photos from the Can/Am tournament. (Thanks, Abby) The Golf Committee would also like to thank the donors to our raffle -- Lupe ’ s Hair Salon , Marge ’ s Cookies, Malcolm from A - 1 Convenience Store and Tahquitz Creek Golf Course . If you were one of the winners, would you let me know. Our Club Championship just took place over two days; and even with the incredible strong winds, we played on. Congrats to Trish Hall our Women ’ s Champ and Daniel Gascon our Men ’ s Champ. We want to thank PGA Superstore for their donation of two $50 gift cards and Mark Frechette for his generous donation of two $100 discount cards. And weren ’ t those hot dogs delicious! Thanks to all of the volunteers (or “ volun - doers ”) for stepping up, esp. Lori Flood for her effort in trying to control the group. But thanks to all the golfers who supported the tournament. You ’ re all winners.
