Divots February 2, 2017 From the Pro Kim Griggs, PGA Golf Cart Rules and Regulations Please remember that during the hours of play, players MUST arrive and depart the driveway from Rancho Vistoso Blvd. Cutting through is strictly prohibited. This is not only very dangerous; it is distracting to players on the golf course. Tee Times Please try and provide the pro shop with the most accurate list of names for tee times (in advance). This will help us to provide everyone with the excellent customer service that you deserve in a timely manner.

Also, please be aware that our golf course is very busy this time of year and that everyone must comply with the pace of play policy. This is completing nine holes in 2 hours and 5 minutes or less, 18 holes in 4 hours and 10 minutes or less, but at the very least maintaining your position with respect to the group in front of you. Golf Tip from the Pro: Greenside Bunker Play: Make a splash!! Learn how to throw the sand onto the green. Because the clubface doesn’t contact the ball (the ball rides out on a cushion of sand), the key to success is to splash, or displace, sand. To get comfortable with this sensation, get in the bunker (no ball) and swing away. Splash the sand as far out of the bunker as you can. Feel the club being grabbed by the sand and keep the club moving to a full finish. You can have the biggest backswing in the world, but if you don’t follow


through, the ball isn’t going anywhere… except back at your feet Calendar of Events 18 Hole Men’s Club Feb 1 – Governors Cup & Low Net Feb 8 – Heartless Scramble Feb 15 – 2 Man Better Ball Feb 22 – Step Aside Scramble (Bash) TVWGC – 18 Holes Feb 3 – Solheim Cup Rd #2 (Chili Party) Feb 7 – Solheim Cup Rd #3 Feb 14 – Low Gross/Low NetState Medallion Feb 21 – Cure For Cancer Tournament 8:30 SG Feb 28 – Low Gross/ Low Net State Medallion 9 Hole Ladies Feb 2 – Trifecta (Meeting) Feb 9 – Player’s Choice Feb 16 – N.O.S.E.
