Some quick updates on World Handicap System over the next few months. Our Active Handicap Posting Season runs from March 1 through December 31. Conversely, our Inactive Handicap Posting Season runs from January 1 through February 28. So any rounds played at Lakewood in the months of January or February are not eligible to be posted (unless guidelines are changed by the USGA). Inactive season is more important going into 2021 because our Golf & Handicap Committees, along with Central Links Golf Association, have completed the process of rerating the golf course. Both committees have reviewed and approved all recommendations from Central Links Golf Association regarding the rerating and changing

of Stroke Index Allocations. These changes will go into effect January 1, 2021. This will give the membership two months (although not the best two months to play golf) to familiarize themselves with the changes. As you will see in the following tables, the golf course, course rating, and slope remained relatively unchanged. However, the Stroke Index Allocation (hole handicap ranking) did change drastically.

If you would like to get into the nuts and bolts of the process, please go to https://www.usga.org/content/ usga/home-page/handicapping/roh/ Content/rules/Appendix%20E%20 Stroke%20Index%20Allocation.htm. Brian welcome all questions and suggestions, so feel free to contact him 816.541.2455 or brian@logc.org.

Let’s Play Golf JASON HUSKA, GOLF PROFESSIONAL

Improve Your Game and Limit Injuries this Offseason The weather has turned colder, and the days are getting shorter. This is the perfect time of year for golfers to work on their physical fitness. After becoming TPI Certified (Titleist Performance Institute), it is amazing the improvement golfers can make in their golf swing after fixing problem areas of strength, mobility, and/or flexibility. All that is needed is a 10 minute assessment to identify those problem areas. Lower back pain and injury is one of the most common ailments for golfers. Did you know that according to TPI lower back injuries are not the cause of the pain, but are the source of the pain? For example, poor mobility in a golfer’s hips or thoracic spine (middle to upper back) can lead to lower back pain and injury. Successful offseason programs should focus on improving strength, mobility, and flexibility. You can do short exercises in the comfort of your own home to help you get the most out of your swing for the future and prevent those aches and pains.

If you have any questions, contact Jason at the Golf Shop or at jason@logc.org.

CHEF’S WHIM: RECIPE OF THE MONTH

Three Cheese Shrimp Scampi Dip Ingredients 8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese 1 cup sour cream ½ cup mayonnaise ½ cup grated Parmesan 4 tablespoons plain dried breadcrumbs Kosher sale 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus 1 tablespoon melted unsalted butter 1 pound large, peeled and deveined shrimp, tails discarded, cut into ¼ inch pieces 6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced Large pinch crushed red pepper flakes ½ cup dry white wine ½ cup fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped 1 teaspoon lemon zest Slices of crusty bread and/or crackers for serving

The holidays are a great time to experiment with new recipes. This one takes a little prep time, but very much worth the effort. The Three Cheese Shrimp Scampi Dip is a definite crowd pleaser. Executive Chef Molly Myers

Directions 1. Position oven rack in the top position and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 2. Beat the cream cheese, mozzarella, sour cream, mayonnaise, Parmesan, 2 tablespoons of the breadcrumbs and ½ teaspoon salt in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium high until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until ready to add the shrimp. 3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the shrimp, garlic, ¼ teaspoon salt and the red pepper flakes, and cook, stirring frequently, until the shrimp just start to turn pink – about 2 minutes. Add the wine, bring to a simmer and cook until the shrimp are pink and cooked through – about 2 minutes. (There will be some liquid left in the skillet.) Remove the skillet from the heat and let the shrimp cool completely. 4. Meanwhile, mix together the parsley, the remaining 2 tablespoons breadcrumbs and 1 tablespoon melted butter, the lemon zest and a pinch of salt in a small bow. 5. Stir the shrimp, pan sauce and cream cheese mixtures together; transfer to a 2-quart flameproof baking dish. (The dip and breadcrumb mixture can be covered and refrigerated overnight separately at this point.) Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture over the dip, and bake until hot and bubbly – 15 to 20 minutes. Switch the oven to broil and cook until the top is golden brown – 1 to 3 minutes. Let rest for a few minutes and then serve hot with bread and/or crackers. 6. Enjoy!

Lakewood Artists Group Show NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER 2020 Written by Patti Browder, Lakewood Resident

The month of November is usually a time for us to honor the Lakewood Artists who have exhibited in the Argyle Gallery during the year. Due to COVID-19 restrictions on group gatherings, we cannot hold our annual “Meet and Greet� Artist Reception. However, the exhibit will go on! The following Lakewood Artists will be hanging special pieces of their art in the gallery during the months of November and December: Bruno Zwerenz Dick Lacy Grace Rottinghaus Janet Beebe Jennylynne Gragg Marsha Alexander Mike Lewis Rick Scaletty Sheila Borne Bundy Carole Gray Nick Erker (first time exhibit)

The Argyle is open for cocktails and dinner, so plan on seeing some of your neighbors while you view the new exhibit and make it a special evening. Reservations suggested by calling 816.541.2452.

All artists featured in the gallery are Lakewood Residents.

All but one of these artists have held their own individual exhibits in recent months. The next two months will be a time to revisit your favorite works and perhaps make a purchase for your home or a special gift. If you are an artist or know someone in Lakewood who might be interested in showing their artistic talent to the community, get in touch with Carole Gray, cjegray@gmail. com; or Sharon Stackelhouse, s.stackelhouse@icloud.com. We are never surprised and always delighted to find new talent in Lakewood.

Wine of the Month 2016 TRENTADUE OLD PATCH RED BLEND

There is a new wine in town – at least at The Argyle. The 2016 Old Patch Red Blend from North Coast, California. It is predominately Zin blended with Petite Sirah and Carignane resulting in very fruity yet complex and full-bodied Rhone-like style wine. It’s as good as it gets for red blends. The wine is rewarding, yet smooth. We can thank the Trentadue family for this lovely wine. They arrived in Sonoma County long before the region gained a reputation as the “Wine Country”. For over 55 years, they have been growing premium wine grapes, with some vines dating back to 1886. This wine has a dark red color with intense black cherry aromas, blueberries, and cherry cola as an immediate impression with aeration nuances of ripe plums, vanilla and cocoa are showing with a slight dose of oak and toast. On the mouth the wine is fresh and juicy with youthful brightness, finishing long and fruity. This is a wine that will drink well with a variety of foods, especially grilled meats, but it is also very enjoyable on its own.

Stop by the Argyle and try it for yourself. It could become a favorite.

Turf Talk

STEVE GRIESINGER, COURSE SUPERINTENDENT

As the weather begins to turn colder, the carts will be allowed off the paths (weather permitting), however, PLEASE keep the carts in the rough as much as possible, as the zoysia cannot handle cart traffic when it is dormant. We will remain with this program until the zoysia fairways begin turning back to their green color in the spring. At some point in November, we will install two pins on the greens to reduce wear and tear as the greens begin to freeze. The greens freeze sooner and easier than other turf areas due to the sand

base and lower turf height. Please move the flags from one hole to the other as your group plays throughout the winter. We will change the pins as weather permits during the winter months. “The greens are really good right now.” I have heard that comment several times this fall. I hate to say it, but it is directly related to the weather. When the daytime temps do not get any higher than 60-70 degrees, we can do some things to golf greens that can create ball speed. I have also heard, “I wish the greens were like this all year around.” If we

had temperatures just like we have in the fall, the greens could be like this all year around. The problem is, we don’t have weather like this in the summer. The question that always arises is, “How do you create ball speed without changing the height of cut?” There are several different ways - rolling, topdressing, brooming, less moisture, verticutting, growth regulators etc.) So enjoy while the weather is good. Hope to see you on the course.

From the LOCC Golf Club Committee

As the 2020 golf season winds down, we thought this would be a good time to reflect on some of enhancements and improvements that we have seen this year around the club. Here’s a quick summary: • Tree removal and new sod in #2 fairway and alongside the #8 green. Low hanging tree limbs were also removed throughout the course. • New fleet of golf carts with premium seats. • Remodeled the Pro Shop with new carpet and paint. • Repaired the cart path area around the #10 tee box and on the hill down to the driving range with better traction. • Integration of Golf Genius for booking tee times, • Fence removal alongside #2, #6 and #7. • Expansion of food and snack options in the Pub. • Desiltation of pond on #9 to help limit moss buildup. • Increased the size of green tee box on #18.

Throughout the year we have received lots of ideas and suggestions for how we can continue to improve the overall experience at Lakewood Oaks Country Club. We have taken all the input and developed a wish list ranging from small experiential and course maintenance enhancements to more significant projects. The list is being submitted to Mark Reid, Brian Batemen and Steve Griesinger in an effort to prioritize and keep making progress. As always share your thoughts, ideas and topics with the Golf Committee – Jim Lysinger, Val Young, Scott Wall, Donna Round, Chris Johns
