Aerifying Greens We will be aerifying greens one last time this summer. Monday August 1, the back 9 greens will be done, and on Tuesday Aug 2, the front 9 greens will be done. If you choose to play 18 holes, you will play the same side twice on those two days.
Sept 19 – Oct 10 – Course Closed (Over -seeding) If any members would like to play at another golf course during over-seeding. Please let me, Tim or Sean know and we can call and reserve a tee time for you. Handicap Flags Please check your garages and see if you may have one of our handicap flags. We are getting very low on them. Thank you Checking in the Pro Shop We ask that everyone please check in the pro shop prior to playing. It is very important that we know who is on the golf course at all times. This is not only for our benefit, but in case there is an emergency and we need to contact you, we will know approx. what hole you will be on and we can notify you faster. Lost & Found Our lost & found is now located next to the ice machine. Eyeglasses and smaller items can be found in the golf shop.
Lost Clubs & Ball Retrievers These items can be found down in the cart barn in the rubber basket. It is a very good idea to buy shaft labels for your clubs, so that they do get returned to you. Please stop by the pro shop to purchase your labels. Pro Tip: Hybrid Putting: If you miss the green and your ball ends up in a closely mown area or a wet area, don’t forget about the hybrid putt: Approach the shot like you would a putt. Use your putting grip, stance, pre shot routine and stroke. With a little practice you could get really good at this shot. Heat Exhaustion With the triple digit temperatures we have been experiencing, I want everyone to be aware of the signs of heat exhaustion: Nausea, heavy Sweating, muscle cramps, dizziness, confusion, clammy moist skin, pale or flushed complexion, fast and shallow breathing, extreme weakness or fatigue, slightly elevated body temperature. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please do not push it. Get out of the sun and in a shady area, drink water (not alcohol) and if possible get a cool towel and put it on your head to get your body temperature back to normal. Update on Frank & Rick: Frank is doing fine in Goodyear with his wife PJ. Frank & PJ are now caregivers for her parents and this
keeps them quite busy. They are doing well. Frank says he is coming this way for an appointment of some sort in the next month or 2. If I find out when, I will let everyone know. Rick is doing well in Utah and seems to really like his job. However he does miss everyone in Sun City Oro Valley. He will be glad to have his wife and child join him in Utah after selling the house her in Arizona. They both say hello New Employees As everyone is aware of, we have new employees in our golf shop. Please make sure you introduce yourself to them when you come in and let them know if you are a 9 hole or 18 hole player until they get to know you. Thank you for your cooperation. Divots Calendars In the past I have attached 2 months’ worth of calendars to the divots. Moving forward, there will only be the current month attached. I am doing this to avoid and possible miss communications that may occur. Things change and I want to avoid mistakes from happening. Assistant Pro Articles When Sean returns from Oregon, I will have he and Tim take turns writing articles in the divots as they are both assistant golf professionals.
