GOLF TIP: The Sand Shot By Stuart Smith—PGA Director of Golf

O

3) It is also imperative that you finish facing the target with your weight on your left foot, rolled up on your right toe. A very common mistake is to finish on the back foot or flat-footed, which often happens when you try to lift the ball out with just your arms.

1) The sand wedge is weighted and

Remember, a soft splashing of the sand and weight on your lead foot at impact will get the majority of your shots out of the bunker.

ne of the most daunting shots in the game is the sand shot. I hope that these tips along with a little practice will give you a new-found proficiency out of the sand.

designed to lift the ball out of the bunker. The first thing to remember is that you do not have to help the ball up and out.

2) My best advice when practicing out

of the bunker is to draw a box around the ball—about the size of a normal divot, approximately 4 by 6 inches—then take your swing and splash the sand out of the box. The visual of splashing encourages a relaxed motion allowing the club to do most of the work. It is important to allow your wrists to hinge and unhinge.

RED HOT

Priority: 1) Out of the bunker 2) On the green 3) Close to the hole 4) In the hole Finally, practice, practice, practice. The more you practice with the box the more you will be able to imagine the box around your ball when you are playing. If you are having trouble, we have an excellent team of instructors here at the country club ready to help you with your game. Call us at 757-787-1800, ext.2.

Coming Soon!

Somersett West Park

“PLEASE consider donating now so that we can include as many features as possible in the first phase of construction!”

DONATE HERE:

S

omersett will soon have another park to enjoy! The SOA Board approved the final plan for Somersett West Park and the City of Reno plans to put in a request for bids this summer. If all goes well, construction of Phase 1 will begin in the fall. West Park will be conveniently located off Hawk Meadow Trail, across from the Fire Station #19. The park is sure to be popular with dog owners, as it will have two dog parks—one for large and another for small dogs—and with gardeners, who will enjoy its raised garden beds. There will also be a family play area and a pavilion with picnic tables, an exercise trail, a large grassy area and access to a trailhead. Although this is all good news, park planners are currently quite short of the funds needed to provide all of the planned and approved amenities. To that end, the SOA’s Somersett Parks Committee has partnered with Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation to accept donations to fill this gap. PLEASE consider donating now so that we can include as many features as possible in the first phase of construction! You can donate to the General Park fund (the committee’s preferred option), or you may select one of the specific amenities—Dog Park, Community Garden, Family Area—or purchase a memorial paver to be placed in a special area near the park entrance.

Jack Coons HOW LONG IN SOMERSETT? Five years. I live here with my wife, Diane. WHERE ARE YOU FROM? Cupertino, California WHY SOMERSETT? It’s a great community—good people. FAVORITE ACTIVITIES? I ’m a beach guy. I’m a sun guy. After a career in software design, I promised myself that when I retired, I was going to be outside. So, I play tennis and golf as much as possible. In the winter when I can’t play sports, I paint. WHY DO YOU PAINT? Painting gives me the opportunity to be creative. I graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from Berkeley and have been painting for 40 years. For many years, I sold my work out of an impressionist gallery in Newport Beach, California. Lately I have been giving informal classes. I’m teaching my neighbor, Joe Capotrio, how to paint. GOALS: To exhibit at the Stremmel Gallery in Reno and to work as a full-time artist for Ferrari-Carano Vineyards and Winery in Healdsburg, Calif.

L

ooking for an affordable art class for your 7-year-old? Ready to do a little Paint and Sipping with a girlfriend or two? Looking for a non-profit where you can volunteer—or make a donation to?  Researching places for your 10-year-old child’s birthday party or affordable venues for a wedding, bridal or baby shower?  Interested in seeing, touching and hearing about Reno’s history in one of the oldest buildings in Nevada? Arts for All Nevada (AFAN) is the answer to all of these questions. The organization provides arts opportunities for people of all ages and abilities while operating and maintaining the historic Lake Mansion, which was built in 1877 and is listed on the state and national Registers of Historic Places.

And each year Arts for All Nevada conducts close to 3,000 art workshops and camps for children and adults throughout the state in schools, hospitals, nursing homes, afterschool programs, and additional locations. AFAN was founded as Very Special Arts Nevada in 1986 but changed its name in 2015 to better reflect its mission. In 1996, AFAN moved into the historic Lake Mansion then located on the grounds of the Convention Center. In July 2004, the mansion moved to its current location, at the corner of Court Street and Arlington Avenue in downtown Reno.

Stuart Smith PGA Director of Golf Somersett Golf & Country Club

WHY SOMERSETT? It was a big decision for my wife Cecile and I to leave the Rocklin/Roseville area. I was well established at Granite Bay Golf Club—starting there prior to its opening in 1993 and working my way up to lead the golf operation as Head Golf Professional in 1998. In golf, you never know when opportunities will arise and at the urging of John Stebbins, who was with East West Partners (the company managing all of Somersett at the time) I drove up to meet Blake Smith. The decision was made quickly and I was offered the head golf professional position and started in April 2007. As for the Why? We loved the community and the thought of getting our boys engaged in winter sports was exciting. The outdoor lifestyle suited us. The golf course was fabulous and we were welcomed with open arms by the membership. A perfect match! WHERE ARE YOU FROM? I am originally from just over the hill in Rocklin. My parents moved there from Los Angeles in 1966 wanting to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city. It just so happened there was a new golf course there and a home located on the 15th hole came available that was formerly the assistant golf professionals. My love affair with golf began. YOU RECENTLY STUNNED THE GOLF WORLD BY TOPPING THE LEADERBOARD AFTER DAY 1 IN THE SENIOR PGA CHAMPIONSHIP, SHOOTING FIVE UNDER PAR. TELL US ABOUT THAT EXPERIENCE. First, I was grateful and proud to have qualified for my fourth Senior PGA Championship, representing Somersett, Reno and The PGA of America. It is an annual privilege for 35 PGA club professionals from across the country to compete with the best of the best. We earn those spots by competing in our 72hole PGA Senior National Club Professional Championship held late in the prior year and finishing in the top 35 of the 276 participants. This was my third time to play at Harbor Shores Golf Club in Benton Harbor, Mich. Although I get limited playing and practice time in comparison to Champions tour players, I was playing well heading into the event. I like the golf course and it suits my game. In my two prior times there I survived the 36-hole cut and played the weekend—the goal for most of us club professionals.

24


I teed off early on my first round—7:40 am on hole #1. It is always comforting to have familiar faces rooting you on. My son Jordan caddying and eight Somersett G&CC Members and residents were in tow. Curtis Chan and Marina Kitamura were attending their fourth Senior PGA with me while Gary and Cheryl Fisher, Ron and Carol Zarcone, and Steve and Lori Bigham were there with me for the first time. My preference is always to play early—I am a morning guy. A nice start with an early birdie on #2 set things going the right direction. To be on the house’s money early is always a great stress reliever. Hole #7, situated just off Lake Michigan with a treacherous elevated green, is perhaps one of the hardest holes on the course. A great 5-iron approach set me up for my second birdie. Following were four more birdies in a row all set up by good wedge shots and converted short putts. I have had five birdies in a row before but not often. Every hole from then on showed my name on the leaderboard which was exciting. Picking up another birdie at the tough 13th put me at seven under for the day. By far and above a spectacular day to this point. The only blemish was a bad double bogey on the 18th where I tried to get a little cute with a pitch shot after hitting up against the screen guarding the bleachers. Still a 5 under 66—a great day!

I was whisked from the scorer’s tent to the Media room where I was introduced to four television cameras and 16-20 inquisitive reporters interested in who I was. A half-hour later I was live on the Golf Channel. My motto has always been “ice cream tastes better on Saturday,” meaning I survived the 36-hole cut. Now I can say that ice cream tastes superb as a first-round leader. I am the first club pro to lead or co-lead in the last 15 years. Friday was the exact opposite as nothing went my way. I shot the highest nine-hole score I can remember—45. I settled down playing the last five holes one under par but too much damage was already done and I finished with an 83 and my first missed cut at Harbor Shores. Still a great week. If I had to endure Friday to experience Thursday it was all worth it! HAVE PEOPLE BEEN TREATING YOU DIFFERENTLY SINCE THEN? I have received many congratulations for the great day but I don’t think people have treated me any differently. I have always had the support of the membership and my peers and most importantly my family. I haven’t let a round of golf go to my head nor have I hung my head from Friday.

can strive for perfection, but it has yet to be reached. It has been said that you can just borrow good golf for a while. I have been so lucky to play all over the world and experience so many things. Since I started playing at the age of 3, I have not known life without golf. WHICH IS YOUR FAVORITE HOLE ON THE CHAMPIONSHIP COURSE? I have always been challenged by our Signature 5th hole. I anticipate the drive off of the elevated tee a couple holes before I get there well aware of what awaits. The par 5 is beautiful with its elevated tee, double water hazard and panoramic view. After negotiating the water hazards a difficult green lurks. All pars are a great score here. FAVORITE ACTIVITIES (OTHER THAN GOLF)? Family, skiing, outdoors.

WHY DO YOU LOVE GOLF? I love the beauty of the golf course. I love that you are always controlling your own destiny—the ball is always in your hands. You 25

Assessment Reminder

Assessment Payments Submitted Online (via Paylease)

Assessments are due on the first of each month. A late fee of $25 will be posted to accounts not paid by the 30th of the month. Accounts 60 days past due will lose clubhouse and/or Canyon Nine privileges. Accounts 75 days past due will be sent to collections.

You can pay your monthly assessments online from the FirstService Residential website through ClickPay, a third-party payment processing company. Payments submitted through ClickPay typically take up to three business days to be credited to your assessment account. Please keep this in mind since payments received after the 30th are subject to a $25 late fee. ClickPay charges a fee for its payments made by debit or credit card. There is no fee if you pay by e-check. For an extra fee, you may arrange to have a payment posted within one business day. You may also submit payments to the SOA office, via check or money order only.
