LGA News September 2019

Ladies' Association News

Congratulations to our new “Queen Bee” Gayle Smith who bested the field over the two-day ringer event.  Barb Sloan was the 9-hole “Lady Bug” champion.

The annual LadiesClassic was contested on August 20, re-scheduled from the 13th due to inclement weather.  Becky DeMuth (Low Net) and Melane Baraniak (2nd low net) took top honors.  In the 9-hole division, Sheryl Hershock locked up low net, Usha Singh took low gross and Suzanne Lynch had the fewest putts.  Proximity winners included: Hollis Hall (long drive), Darlene Elliott (closest to the pin), Robin Giunta (long putt), JoAn Treskovich (closest to the pin), Enis Cassill (long drive) and Melane Baraniak (long putt).   A wonderful picnic-themed meal, planned by Melane Baraniak, was enjoyed by all on the originally scheduled date.

The calendar might read September but don’t put away those clubs!  There is a full schedule of activities for the month but remember that league play moves to 10:00 am! Please assemble near the pro shop at 9:30 for announcements and tee assignments.  

The closing day scramble and dinner will be on October 1 with a 1:00 shotgun start.  A brief business meeting, presentation of awards and election of officers for 2020 are on the agenda.

Course Updates ~ Aug 2019

Course Updates Now and For the Upcoming Months
 

Currently our main goal is to repair the greens due to accidental scalping at the beginning of July.

We’d like to let the membership know the current plan for the areas and the course in general.

  • Thursday, August 22nd the damaged greens (2,3,4,5,7,8,14) were deep tined and rolled to help drain the anticipated rainfall later today.
  • Beginning Monday, August 26th, there will be temporary pins placed in the fairways of those holes until August 29th while feeding the greens with nutrients and giving them time to grow and heal.
  • September 3rd, 4th, 5th, and (possibly) 6th all the greens will be DryJect; holes will be closed as the process is being done and will be ready to play once clean up is complete.
  • Fall Aerification is scheduled for Monday, October 14th (tentatively), following normal scheduling.

All work is of course weather dependent and may be rescheduled accordingly. Look for further updates via email for changes or updates to the above schedule.

(Updated 8/30/19 to include the 3rd for the DryJect)

Update 9/3/19: The front 9 was completed in one day and will be open with temporary holes begining Wed. Sept 4th; the back 9 will be closed Wed 9/4 and Thurs 9/5.
