Feedback, News, and a Few Reminders

Sign Ups:  Let’s have a perfect sign-up this week!!!

  • Please respect the sign up categories. You can find your category assignment on the sign-up, please sign up in the correct category.
  • Members must sign-up themselves only.  You may not sign up your friends.
  • Do NOT put your name in the last foursome until other preceeding time slots are filled.  The last foursome is only to be used if need.  Do not leave gaps causing the coordinators to have to move you/email you, etc.  We normally have 6-8 foursomes.  So if you put your name in the 8-9th foursome you may get moved (and buddies may have to be split up).  Currently there is space on the sign up for 9 foursomes, to accommodate overflow if everyone decides to play.

Please arrive no later than 8:  The first 3 foursomes must arrive at 7:30.  Everyone must be there at 8 a.m.   When we have last minute cancellations it causes a chain reaction through all of the foursomes and everyone gets moved up the morning of play.  Last week people were late arriving, the last foursome was late teeing off and one person missed playing the first hole.

New this year: Cart Path Only and Lift, Clean and Place:  Whenever it is cart path only, we will also play lift, clean and place – in the fairway only.

Don’t allow anyone to play through:  On Thursdays you are playing in a league tournament and people are not allowed to play through; so if they try, tell them no.

We had 25 golfers last week, it was cloudy but it didn’t rain on us!  Winners and scores for everyone are posted on the 2015 schedule, in the member only section.   Don’t forget to post your scores in the GHIN!!  New people: you need 5 scores in the GHIN before you will have a handicap.

Today’s Results – April 2, 2015

What a fun day!  33 people, 9 foursomes played today.  The results of our weekly games are posted each week on our web page.  For your convenience over the next few weeks I will send you a link which will take you there; after that, please find the results yourself.   Here’s the link: 2015 Schedule, Winners, Weekly Scores.

To find the results without a link – simple!:

  • google (or use any search engine) “greendale women, alexandria” and click on the link to open our website.
  • In the “member only” section, click on “2015 schedule and weekly results”
  • Scroll down to the appropriate date and you have 2 choices; either click “winners” if you only want to see who won; or you can click on “Details for all players”.  There you will not only find who won,  but you can see all the scores for the day, and who got birdies and chip-ins.

Golf Trip to The Woods Tues May 19 – Thu May 21 – This is going to be GREAT fun, but you need to sign up no later than March 30 and space is limited to first 12 who sign up!  I understand we have 6 signed up already, so don’t wait!  It’s not a very far drive and it is located in the beautiful Shennandoah Valley, not far from the town of Berkeley Springs!  We will have 3 days of golf.  Tuesday we will play at a course on the way up (course TBD).   Lucinda is working on a terrific Wednesday schedule which may include a morning on one of the Wood’s 18 hole golf courses, followed by an adventure to nearby Berkley Springs for an early dinner (back to our house by dark).   Thursday we will play the second 18 hole course and return home.  Lucinda will have more details at the Spring Meeting.  If you have questions or are interested please let her know angelsrwus@gmail.com.  She will talk about the trip at the Spring meeting, but remember, it could be full by then.

Welcome New Members!  Click here to read profiles about these new members:  Natalee Cha, Susan Crawford, Kim Engman, Mary Ellen Jehn, Lynn Smith, Chris Rupprecht, Wanda Martinson, and Sharon Monde!  Thank you Jeanie Tulipane for initiating the idea of  profiles for all our members and collecting the new member info!
