Greetings Golfers!

We had some welcome rain for the month of July and some cooler days that helped keep the course green with only a few days reaching over 35 degrees. It has been great weather for golf and also gave the maintenance team time to concentrate on finishing up the adjusting of the irrigation system which is nearing completion. We are moving a lot of sprinklers and removing some which will eliminate the algae problems on the greens. Some problem areas on a handful of greens you will notice we are hand coring and spot topdressing. Hopefully in the next few weeks these will heal and we will have 100% coverage.

We are slowly moving forward on our native area that you will notice on the 10th and 11th tee box. The sandy look is how this course was meant to appear and we are getting great positive feedback. Our caddies are also out there assisting in removing weeds.

Greens have recovered well from renovations and the heavy grain has seemed to be removed. We continue to perform regular verti-cutting and needle tinning on a weekly basis but very lightly so as not to disturb the roll of the greens but improve the health of the turf.

The 12th green was extended back to its original design, with the green now running right up to the bunker edge. We thank you in advancefor not walking up the bunker face onto the green; please enter by the lower part of the bunker.

We have started a bunker re-shaping program which will include the faces of the bunkers becoming more concave. At present they are flat faced with a lot of sand. The more extreme ones are mounded and produce plugged lies. The concave shape will cause your ball will roll back to the flat part of the bunker and eliminate plugged lies.

RULE OF THE MONTH
Rule #28               Ball Unplayable
The player may deem his ball unplayable at any place on the course, except when his ball is in a water hazard.  The player is the sole judge as to whether his ball is unplayable.
If the player deems his ball unplayable, he takes ONE PENALTY STROKE and must do one of these three options:
• Play a ball as near as possible from the spot the original ball was played. (which means go back and play a ball from where you hit it into the unplayable lie)
• Drop a ball directly behind the point where the ball lay, keeping that point directly between the hole and the spot where the ball is to be dropped, with no limit how far behind that point the ball may be dropped.
• Drop a ball within two club lengths of where the ball lay, but no nearer the hole.
If the unplayable ball is in a bunker and the player chooses option 2 or 3, he must drop within the bunker.
Good Luck and Good Golf!
Thanks,
Joe Millar, PGA
