GRATITUDE… make it YOUR attitude Did you know that being grateful in EVERY SITUATION you face brings more happiness into your life? Even the not very pleasant ones such as sickness, the loss of someone you love or maybe a change in a relationship. If you stop and look there is always something to be grateful for. It’s all in YOUR attitude. We all know what it is like to wait. We do it all the time. Holly Whitcomb in the “Seven Spiritual Gifts of Waiting” stated that she believes “that we are blessed with insight when life circumstances put us on hold.” She challenges us “The next time you find yourself waiting impatiently and feeling that you deserve better, pause. Your waiting is offering you a choice: Bemoan your circumstances or be grateful for your blessings. Remember what is going well. Breathe in a little gratitude…. When we are waiting, we are vulnerable-and our hearts are open. Therein lies the gift: Our open hearts teach us to notice the blessings of small things we would have never noticed before….” Gratitude can do so much for your life. It turns obstacles into opportunity, it moves us beyond entitlement and it opens our eyes to the blessings of small things. I was chatting with my friend Meg over the Thanksgiving holiday about my Gratitude theme for 2013. We both commented that with everything that is happening around us each day we’ve noticed that people are doing a lot of whining. And that included the two of us! She remarked, “When I find myself complaining I STOP and say, ‘give me five’ NOW!” Yes, I thought the same thing, push-ups. But then I would be complaining about doing the push-ups. And then I would have to do five more and even though my abs and triceps would benefit from this, would it help me to focus on the blessings that I am grateful for? Probably not! We laughed and what she meant was “give me five things you are GRATEFUL for NOW!” This puts a whole new perspective on a situation and you will be amazed at how it changes your attitude. So I am asking YOU to take the GRATITUDE CHALLENGE with me for 2013. When you find yourself waiting, complaining, feeling entitled or challenged by some obstacle – “STOP and GIVE ME FIVE” and make GRATITUDE YOUR ATTITUDE.

Chris Mowers, PGA Director of Golf Chris is originally from Plymouth, New Hampshire, where he grew up and at the age of 12 began working in the golf industry. He worked in golf course maintenance throughout high school, including the construction of the back 9 holes at Nippo Lake. After graduating from the University of New Hampshire with a Bachelor’s Degree in Recreation Management and Business Administration, Chris moved to southern California to attend the Golf Academy of San Diego. Upon graduation in 2002, he began his career at Morgan Run Resort and Club as an Assistant Golf Professional, during which time he completed a three level apprenticeship to earn his “Class A” PGA Membership in 2006. Chris transferred back to the east coast in April 2007 to become the First Assistant Golf Professional at Ipswich Country Club and was promoted to Head Golf Professional the following year. Since becoming Nippo Lake’s Head Professional in 2009, Chris has taken the Member tournaments to the next level and created new events such as the Annual Nippo Lake Cup and the Annual Nippo Lake FourBall. In addition, he introduced the Get Golf Ready Program and has developed a reputation as a highly regarded Golf Instructor. Coming into his fifth season at Nippo Lake and second season at Rochester CC, Chris is eager to continue to grow the game at both facilities through increased playing opportunities and teaching programs. Please let Chris know if there is anything he and/or his staff can do to improve your experience at Nippo Lake Golf Club. Listed below are the PGA Programs available throughout the season and look for more information on the website as the summer progresses: PGA Trade-Up Program - April 2013 The PGA Trade-In Network presents ongoing opportunities for golfers to trade in obsolete clubs for credit to modernize and purchase new equipment more economically. Bring in your used equipment and based on fair market values from the PGA.com Value Guide, the National Standard for Golf Club Value, you will be issued a credit towards the purchase of new clubs for the 2013 season. PGA Free Lesson Day – Sunday, May 19, 2013 Last May, 3,826 PGA and LPGA Professionals nationwide gave more than 61,500 FREE LESSONS. From all indications, 2013 PGA Free Lesson Month will be even better! On Sunday, May 19th, Chris and his teaching staff will be giving FREE 10-minute lessons from 10am – 2pm.

Friday, August 30th – Monday, September 2nd
Since the launch of Patriot Golf Day in 2007, more than $9 million dollars has been raised and more than 2,100 scholarships have been awarded to children and spouses of military men and women killed or disabled while serving our Great Nation. This year, Patriot Golf Day will be held over Labor Day Weekend. The goal for participating facilities is to collect a $1 donation from every golfer (in addition to the normal greens fee) in support of the Folds of Honor Foundation. Get Golf Ready – in Five Days If you have ever thought about picking up a golf club, either for the first time or returning once again, you can make golf your sport of a lifetime. The Get Golf Ready Program is designed to teach you in five short lessons everything you’ll need to know to step onto a golf course and get out to play with confidence. Get Golf Ready LEVEL 2 – in Five Days This clinic will go into more comprehensive detail in each of the teaching levels. The detailed instruction will include putting strategy, pitching and chipping “controls”, trouble shots, techniques for distance, and course management. The majority of the lessons will be conducted on the golf course while learning how to navigate and “behave” on the course. Junior and Advanced Junior Camps Chris will be conducting 1 Junior Camp for young beginning golfers between the ages of 7 and 11 years old. The camp instruction will be based around beginning golf FUN-damentals, putting, chipping, and full swing, in addition to etiquette and character values. In addition, Chris will be conducting 1 Advanced Camp and although there is no age restriction, these camps are best suited for students who have been in previous junior or advanced junior camps.

General Information This handbook is intended to be a complete chronological listing of Nippo Lake Golf Club tournament events and a description of league activity for the 2013 golf season. We hope that you will find this book informative and helpful in planning your golf activities for the season. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding any of the events, please feel free to contact Management or Pro Shop personnel. All players and their guests are required to register in the Pro Shop prior to the start of their round. PLEASE DO NOT START OFF THE BACK NINE WITHOUT THE PERMISSION OF THE PRO SHOP. Your GHIN handicap is not included in your 2013 membership. There is a $30.00 charge to activate your GHIN. Please see the Pro Shop if you did not initially pay your $30.00 with your membership fee. An active GHIN is necessary to play in certain NLGC tournaments. See pages 19 & 20 for Tournament Policies and Procedures. It is the responsibility of each member to post all scores into the computer system. Please post your scores ONLY when playing by USGA rules. It is important to keep handicap information up to date. It is possible to post single 9-hole rounds, which will help to keep everyone’s handicap current. (WHEN POSTING A NINE HOLE SCORE, please make sure to follow the directions on the computer screen and click the appropriate box – NINE HOLES - and then whether you played the front or back, otherwise your score will be posted as an 18 hole score which will distort your handicap.) The use of handicaps during tournament competition is a vital part of fairness to your fellow golfers. If you are unsure of how to post your score, please ask the Pro Shop for their assistance. Please do your part to maintain an accurate handicap. The NHGA and NHWGA provide a free service to active golfers called eREVISION. GHIN will now automatically send golfers their updated handicap indexes via email. To learn more about this service log on to www.nhgolf.com or www.ghin.com The tee boxes and rating for men, women and juniors are as follows: Forward Tees – (GOLD) men = 62.5/102 women = 65.4/104 Middle Tees – (WHITE) men = 64.9/117 women = 69.2/113 Back Tees (BLUE) men = 66.5/121 women = 71.7/118 U.S. Kids Blue Level 1 Tees – 1893 Total Yards U.S. Kids Gold Level 2 Tees – 3171 Total Yards All New Hampshire Golf Association related tournament applications are available ONLY on-line. Applications can be downloaded at www.nhgolf.com
General Information (continued)
You may play from any tee box that you are comfortable playing from. Please make sure that when you post your score, it reflects the tee boxes from which you played. UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED, DURING ALL
TOURNAMENTS, THE MEN WILL PLAY FROM THE MIDDLE (white) TEES AND THE WOMEN FROM THE FORWARD (gold) TEES. The definition of an active current GHIN handicap for the 2013 golf season is considered to be ten (10) 18-hole SCORES POSTED DURING THE 2012 and/or 2013 SEASON. Scores prior to 2012 will not be considered when determining an active current GHIN handicap. State law prohibits any member, guest or non-member from bringing alcoholic beverages to the restaurant or onto the course. There will be no coolers allowed on the course. A beverage cart is available and will provide alcohol, beer, soda, sandwiches and snacks. Also a reminder, according to State Law NO ALCOHOL can be on the golf cart or person when crossing from the 1 st to 2nd hole and the 9th to 10th hole. NO ALCOHOL is allowed in the parking lot. For your convenience receptacles are located leaving the 1st green, 9th green and 18th green. Please drink responsibly and obey the law. Thank you for your cooperation. Tee times are strongly recommended. To keep our green fees and membership rates affordable, we need everyone to be more responsible and considerate when making their tee times. Members may make starting times up to seven (7) days in advance. When making starting times either on the phone or at the Pro Shop, the Pro Shop staff will ask the names of the persons you will be playing with. Tee times are at a premium. If you make a tee time for four (4) people, please bring 4 people. If you are unable to provide 4 players or unable to make your scheduled tee time, please give the Pro Shop at least 24-hour notice so they can make adjustments. Proper golf club attire is required and will be strictly enforced. NO short-shorts, cut offs, muscle shirts, halter-tops or bathing suits. **Jeans can be worn but must not have stains or holes. NLGC is a public golf club. We ask that our members demonstrate exemplary behavior when on the premises and we expect them to be an outstanding example for the general public. Please refrain from foul language, throwing clubs, excessive drinking and PLEASE adhere to the dress code. METAL SPIKES ARE PROHIBITED. If you have not already made the change to spikeless shoes, please stop by the Pro Shop. For a minimal charge, they will be happy to change them for you.
General Information (continued)
Nippo Lake Golf Club WILL NOT be responsible for loss of personal property by members or their guests. CARTS will be available as daylight permits, based on the time of sunset. All members playing in non-sponsored Nippo Lake Golf Club tournaments (Barrington Chamber of Commerce, Federal Managers, Navy Shipyard, Musto Memorial, etc.) will be required to pay the total tournament entry fee and will not be able to deduct the cost of the green fees or cart fees. All suggestions, other matters of concern and complaints should be addressed to Management or Director of Golf. A suggestion box is located in the hallway outside the Pro Shop or visit our website to let us know how we are doing. Your suggestions & comments are GREATLY APPRECIATED! There is a plethora of information available to all of us and unfortunately, not enough time to digest it all, so…ONCE AGAIN WE ARE ASKING, if you read or hear of a new idea, we would greatly appreciate you sharing it with us. Read it, CUT IT OUT… Hear it, WRITE IT DOWN… an original thought, SHARE IT… then drop it off in the Pro Shop. WANT THE KUDOS FOR YOUR IDEA? Don’t forget to include your name and phone number. In an effort to “go green” the NLGC updated monthly calendars can be found on our website. Please reference these calendars for any updates, sign-up dates and scheduled outside tournaments. This membership book will be available online as a PDF file ONLY. We have printed a limited number of 2013 books for those of you who like the “hands on” approach or do not have computer access. Tournament evaluation sheets will once again be available in the hallway outside the Pro Shop. YOUR FEEDBACK IS EXTREMELY HELPFUL so… please take the time to fill one out after each event.
DRIVING RANGE: Due to the proximity of the back nine, ONLY SHORT IRONS (with a maximum distance of 175 yards) will be allowed on the driving range. The driving range is closed Wednesdays at 5pm to Thursdays at 9am for maintenance and periodically for clinics and junior camps during the season, so please check with the Pro Shop before use. No more than four (4) players per group will be allowed on the course at any time, unless permitted by the Director of Golf and/or Pro Shop staff.
General Information (continued)
The practice holes for the junior camps and adult clinics will once again be located at the bottom of the driving range. The driving range will be closed when Chris Mowers and Rick Rogers are using the area for instruction which will be marked by a sign. Thank you for your cooperation. Any gift certificates won during tournaments cannot be applied to your membership fees and yearly cart rental. Gift certificates CAN BE USED towards merchandise, daily green fees and daily cart fees. PLEASE try to use your gift certificates by the end of the current year. If lightning is in the area, all play should cease. You should immediately head to the clubhouse. Golf carts are not lightning proof. The Pro Shop staff will make a reasonable effort to inform you (blowing air horn) of impending dangerous weather. We do not expect our employees to endanger themselves in attempting to notify you to seek shelter, so please use your own discretion. Under no circumstances are the regular greens, tees or fairways to be used for practice. The Golf Professional in conjunction with the Golf Course Superintendent shall determine times when course conditions prohibit play as well as restricting the use of carts. All membership fees are non-refundable. Please be patient with the maintenance crew. They take pride in their job and they work hard to keep the course in beautiful condition. They deserve the same courtesy that you would expect from them. Information in this handbook is subject to change. For detailed information regarding each tournament, please consult the Pro Shop staff as the event approaches.
Please remember this PACE OF PLAY RULE: Your position on the golf course is behind the group in front of you, NOT in front of the group behind you. Keep your pace of play according to the times on the scorecard. Slower groups must follow the direction of the Pro Shop Staff or Course Ranger. This may include picking up golf balls and skipping play until your group is correctly spaced behind the preceding group.

Tournament Policies and Procedures Information about upcoming events and announcements will be posted in the hallway at â€œInformation Centralâ€? no later than two (2) weeks prior to the sign-up deadline. Sign-up deadlines for all club tournaments have been established to aid in the smooth facilitation of these events.

9-HOLE LADDER TOURNAMENT TOURNAMENT DATES: Begins Saturday, May 4, 2013 Ends Sunday, September 1, 2013
Men 9-Hole Ladder - $10.00 one time charge Women 9-Hole Ladder - $10.00 one time charge
FORMAT: Individual stroke play – 9 Hole Net Score – 100% handicap HOW DOES IT WORK? The first time you want to qualify for the ladder, you must sign up for the tournament and pay your ten dollars ($10.00) unless you paid for the ladder when you paid your membership. Play your round or rounds, and drop your dated, signed and attested scorecard along with the tee boxes you played that day, into the ladder score box located by the computer. Don’t forget to post your score before you put your scorecard in the box. Each ladder score will NOT be considered a “tournament score” and should be posted to the computer without a “T”. The Pro Shop will calculate your best 9 hole net score (RELATIVE TO PAR – plus or minus) for that round or rounds based on your current GHIN handicap. That will then determine whether you make the ladder.
HOW MANY RUNGS ARE ON EACH LADDER? There are ten rungs on each ladder represented by the 10 lowest net scores (RELATIVE TO PAR – plus or minus). Names ONLY will be listed alphabetically, (NOT SCORES) so you won’t know whom you are going to “push off the ladder.” Only the Pro Shop will know and they have been sworn to secrecy. You will need to check the ladder list periodically to see if someone has “pushed you off.”
CAN I BE KNOCKED OFF THE LADDER? Once all the rungs are filled, your position on the ladder can be altered if another player posts a net score that is lower than yours. If you were on the tenth (10 th) rung, (the highest net score of the 10) yes, you would come tumbling down.
CAN I TRY TO GET BACK ON THE LADDER IF REMOVED OR CAN I TRY TO MOVE HIGHER ON THE LADDER? Yes, you can qualify as many times as you would like, at any time during the week or weekend, at no additional cost. Just remember you must drop your dated, signed and attested scorecard along with the tee boxes you played that day, into the ladder score box located by the computer. The object of this season long event is to stay on the ladder until September 1, 2013. At the opening of business on Tuesday, September 3, 2013, the top 10 scores and ties will be posted. These players will meet in a 9-hole shootout tournament on Sunday, September 8, 2013 at 3pm. See Ladder Shoot-out Tournament page 37 for explanation of prizes.

The survivor is the winner.
