Laurel Course New Record Holder
Managers Message —by Anthony Chelena
Over the years it has become a familiar conversation at the Club. A Member will say, “I heard from a friend that recent event was a lot of fun, but I didn’t even know about it. Why didn’t the Club promote it?” I smile and think, “Members aren’t looking at our communications anymore. We featured it in the newsletter for two months, put up signs around the Club, sent email notices and they still didn’t see it.” So this year we have overhauled our communication techniques, changed to a variety of new sign formats, and reformatted the newsletter. There has been an overwhelming positive response but some negative- and I understand it. The goal is to communicate in a format convenient and interesting to you, so you can take advantage of activities that are of interest to you. It is a new communication age and it requires new communication strategies, but it is still all about communicating with you. Speaking of communications, are you receiving email messages from the Club?
We typically send one or more emails a week, and the open/read rate is about 46%. Often Members have many email accounts and we aren’t sending messages to every decision-maker/interested-party in the household (You know who I am talking about). Message Beth Edwards at firstname.lastname@example.org to add all the important email accounts in your household. If you are like me, you may have a spam filter on your email account. You may need to change your settings to accept bulk emails from hendersonvillecc.com. Take a look at our Membership Map below. We dropped our membership database into a map program to see where our Members live. We can zoom in to see how many of our Members live in a subdivision or even on a given street. For instance, when I zoom in I can tell that we have 55 Members living inside one nearby gated golf course-centered development and 38 Members living nearby in another. We also have clusters of Members living in Brevard, Asheville, Columbus, Lake Lure and beyond. Total Membership in May 2014: 545 A, 170 B, and 343 C for a total of 1058. The Clubhouse Sunday Brunch won’t return until after Labor Day. Instead, the Clubhouse is offering a Sunday Night
Cookout every Sunday (except July 6) until Labor Day. The Sunday Night Cookout will have a rotating menu each week, but will always feature hamburgers, hotdogs, a fresh fish, two other entrée choices, salads and desserts. Make it a part of your weekly Sunday wind down. How about the news on the Score cover? Juliet Townsend shoots a 64 from the Laurel Tees. The truth is that it was all set up. Soon after we installed the new Laurel Tees, I called Skip & Tracey Townsend to ask if their daughter would come out and play the first round from the new tees and set the first course record. I didn’t know she would shoot a 64! That’s 9 birdies and 1 bogey for the 15 year old sophomore at HHS. It was really a brave thing for her to do knowing that I was going to publish her score and give everyone a target to shoot at. Coincidentally, a few weeks later, Tom Hadley goes out and fires a new record 66 from the green tees. Great job Juliet and Tom!

Accelerating the putter with a square club face at impact will allow you to make more putts. Unfortunately many golfers have the face of the putter open through impact causing inconsistent distances and unwanted backspin on their beginning roll.
Sam France had a holein-one on the 122 yard 13th hole using a wedge. John Frier scored a hole in one on the 122 yard 13th hole using a 7 iron. Chris Lance scored an eagle 2 on the 364 yard 14th hole. Jerry Rice made an eagle 2 on the 378 yard 15th hole using a sand wedge on his second shot. Col. Bob Smith shot his age and also 1 better his age in April. Nick MaGro bettered his age by 3 shots.

A practice drill to help you see if your clubface is open at impact would be to putt two balls at the same time. Place two balls together ahead of your putter. If you have an open clubface at impact, the ball closer to the heel of your putter will start off the clubface first and go further. It does this because you are making contact with the heel ball before the ball that is closer to the toe of the putter. Now try to release the putter through impact until the ball that is closer to the toe of the putter starts off first and goes further. You are now slightly releasing the putter head through impact. By having a square clubface that slightly closes through impact, will allow the ball to hug the ground nicely as it rolls into the hole.

WGA 18-Hole —by Sandy Sessoms It’s hard to believe that we are well into our tournament season! Spring Shoot, with a total of 7 play days (including 2 rain-outs) produced 15 winners from 3 flights.

There is more information for you on the web site that includes tee times, breaking news, and future scheduled events, etc. May has included several flighted and team events, State Play Day, Interclub at Kenmure CC, and a Western Tournament at Champion Hills CC. The Western at Holly Tree in April was rained out.
Here’s what to watch for: • Interclub at Connestee Falls CC on June 10th...this being the first event at our new Interclub location that is taking the place of Cliffs Valley. • Western Carolina at Catawba CC on June 27th • Member/Member on June 3 • Member/Guest June 11th and 12th with a rain date of the 13th • A team event on the 17th • A flighted T and F event on the 24th

The Golf Course Maintenance Department is hitting full stride maintaining the golf course. Once we received more summer like conditions, we were able to evaluate the health of our turf. This past winter was a tough one for turfgrass. We did lose some Bermudagrass on our collars. All of the areas sustaining damage had a recurring theme, shade and drainage issues. Since the winter was wet and cold, these areas did not have the ability to dry out, staying perpetually wet. This is what caused our winterkill. We were able to save a good majority of damaged turf through fertility, sunshine, and cultural practices. All areas have now been re-sodded and are looking good. As always, it takes the golf course to a bit of time to fully awaken, which takes patience.
Join us for our 9-Hole Twilight Mixer on Thursday, June 19 at 4:30 pm. Sign-up sheet will be posted in the Ladies Lockerroom.
SMGA —by Dick DuRose June brings us to the heart of the season, with five Monday competitions, and our 2nd Interclub match with Cliff’s Valley on Wednesday June 25. Don’t forget to sign up early as this one fills up every year. At the first Interclub at Pebble Creek in May, we fell slightly behind in the overall Club standings. But, the good news is we are only out of third place by nine shots. The bad news it is 36 shots out of first. Congratulations to Rick Price whose foursome came in first. Hopefully, our team will make up lots of ground when we play the Interclub at HCC in August.
I continue to appreciate numerous members giving me their “two cents’ worth.” Your opinions, positive, negative, or constructive, are valuable to me. Please feel free to contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
