NEWSLETTER DECEMBER 2013 Vietnamese

Dear Golfers,

December looks to be a very nice month of golf weather with the temperatures cooling off and hopefully more sunshine than we saw last month. We are all very thankful that we dodged the full force of Typhoon Haiyan though we did get a lot of rain and the golf course has been quite wet and playing a little bit slower because of it. Despite the rainy weather, we were still fairly busy during this past month of November and we expect to be even busier in December. The tourist season is upon us so we are seeing a lot more players coming in from the cold regions. Because we will see more and more play as we move into the winter months, we encourage all members to booktee times in advance so that we can ensure that you get to play at the time you wish and that we can provide you the high standard of service you expect. We have reserved blocks of preferred tee times on the weekends and weekdays exclusively for the membership to even further ensure that there are times available for booking. A list of those times will be provided. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in booking tee times and assisting us in the proper management of the golf course.

Danang Golf Club is proud to announce that we have won two prestigious awards from The Asia Pacific Golf Group! We have won "Best Golf Course in Vietnam" and "Top Ten Golf Courses in Asia Pacific" by Asian Golf Monthly. To be in the Top Ten alongside such famous courses as Nine Bridges in Korea and Kingston Heath in Australia, is truly an honor that we can all be proud of!

Happy Holidays everyone!

Sincerely,
JOE MILLAR

From the superintendent

Dear Golfers,

Last month's priority was to improve the putting surfaces by increasing turf grass density and coverage. With the greens now close to 100% recovered, the maintenance schedule over the next few weeks is to promote true, firm and faster greens. All putting surfaces are in good shape heading into the cooler months.

The clean up from Typhoon Nari is very close to completion. This will allow the Landscape team to concentrate more closely on the finer details that may have been missed due to the devastation of Nari.

The heavy rains of the past couple of weeks have caused a couple of headaches due to blocked drainages lines and sunken areas around selected drainage outlets. Unfortunately these areas can't be identified until after the damage has occurred.

The water table is very high at the moment, hence quite a few areas of water laying around, mostly in the sandy wasteland areas. Less rain and more sunshine will help return these areas to their normal environment.

Please introduce yourselves when you get a chance and I welcome all feedback.

Good golfing.

Thank You,

Dan Brown
Golf Course Superintendent.

RULE OF THE MONTH
Rule #13 Ball Played as It Lies
Rule #13 states that a ball must be played as it lies. The penalty for breach of the rule is two strokes in Stroke Play and loss of hole in Match Play.
It seems a fairly simple rule but it can get complicated depending on the circumstance.
For example, rule #13-2 states that a player may not improve his lie, area of intended swing, or stance.
This would include pressing the club on the ground behind the ball, removing or replacing divots or loose soil; or moving, bending, breaking anything growing or fixed.
This means that if a player is in the trees, he cannot bend or break any branches with his hands in order to play his ball and neither can his caddie. He can however, back into the tree to take his stance and have the branches bend or break while doing so, but he cannot do it with his hands. (Decision 13-2/1)
Good Luck and Good Golf!
Thanks,
Joe Millar, PGA
