Fourth of July Winners
All Facilities will be closed Tusday, July 5th.
The course will be open for member walkers only as we top dress greens.
Not much happened in June. The Mystery Hole event was cancelled on June 7 due to a lack of quorum. The same problem plagued the 9-holer low putt contest.
The King & Queens event, scheduled for June 14, was rained out. This is a fun event which everyone looks forward to playing. Fortunately, with Pat Warren’s determination and organizing skill, the event was rescheduled and played on June 21.
The team of Stan Treskovich, Cindy Soccio, Enis Cassill, and Barbara Sloan took the crown. Skill prizes for the Kings were:
Longest Putt #8 Stan Treskovich
Closest to the Hole #11 Stan Treskovich
Longest Putt #15 Bill Hough
Closest to the Hole #17 Dave Berenbrok
Friends Day took place on June 28, with members allowed to bring up to three friends. Many thanks to Betty Rosa and Karen Thompson for their efforts to once again make this is wonderful day for all who participated.
Looking forward to the July events, there will be a Member-Member played on July 12 with teams chosen by the Pro Shop. The Queen Bee and Lady Bug tournaments are scheduled for July 19 and 26.
After a rocky start to the season with weather, June has been a scorcher and the first week of July looks to be the same. We’ve had many days perfect for Golf and Jim and his crew have the Golf Course in pristine condition. If you have yet to get on the course, do so now and enjoy!
June was filled with events from our Men’s Invitational, to Bucks & Does to our Parent-Child. Congratulations to Allen Jurica & Corey Riddell who battled Joe Corsi and Nick Turowski through (8) rounds to claim the title of Overall Champions.
We also had one for the books, a hole-in-one on #2. Congratulations to Steph Trozzo for an outstanding accomplishment being her first-ever!
Lastly, we have officially formed a Handicap Committee at Ligonier that consists of 5 volunteer members and one staff representative. Peer review is an integral part of the handicap system to help ensure fairness, and thus the need for a Handicap Committee. All reputable Clubs throughout the country have a Handicap Committee, and Ligonier should be no different. While the Ligonier Handicap Committee is just getting underway, it's important that everyone understand the Committee's role in the Club. While score review is an important aspect of the Committee's duties, it is just one of the duties they will undertake, including but not limited to Member education, ensuring the course details are accurate, and knowing the Rules of Handicapping.
