April 2017

Greetings Ladies!

I'm so excited to welcome you all to the Red Hawk Women's Golf Club 2017 season!!! I'm really looking forward to a fun, exciting time with lots of activities, friendship, and great golf!

We have three new members this year, so please make sure to say hello and make them feel welcome. Their names are Deb Stewart, Tona Reilly, and Mical Willner.

We have made some changes to the calendar, to hopefully have more participation and better weather. The biggest calendar change is that we won't be having a Home and Home Tournament this year due to scheduling conflicts with Wolf Run, so we have moved the Intraclub Tournament to August (when we hope to have better weather). We will also be having our second social event in the August/September timeframe rather than May.

We have a wonderful Board this year, and they are working hard to put together a very enjoyable season for you. Please feel free to contact anyone on the Board and get involved. We really appreciate your input and assistance. It takes a lot of joint effort to keep things rolling, and we really want to bring ladies on board who can take larger roles next year!

Happy Golfing!


Hole In One!

Congratulations Betty Jasper for getting her first hole in one, March 16, Hills #5!

To all our members, their guests and the staff at Red Hawk we thank you for making our annual St. Patrick's Day Dinner such a huge success. The evening started off with music by Dan Caraker, games, time to talk with old friends and meet new ones followed by a wonderful dinner and dancing.

A big thank you to Jean and Ray Case who greeted and checked in everyone as the arrived and Dan for his music. The Poker Walk, Putting Contest and Corn Toss provided much fun, many laughs and helped us raise money for our ladies league.

The winners were: Putting Contest – Don Herauf, Gift Basket; Poker Walk – Dianne Nicholson, $50 Red Hawk Gift Card; Corn Toss – Cousin Ruthie, $50 Red Hawk Gift Card

We want to thank those who helped with the games and added so much fun to the evening. Rae Morrow, Bill Morrow, Jack Foltz, Ed Davis, Don McAlister, Ron Henderson with the Poker Walk. Catherine Crispel and Rodney Damasco with the Putting Contest. Gayle Foltz and Margie McAlister with the Corn Toss. You all did an awesome job. A special thank you to Red Hawk for donating the two $50 gift cards.

USGA Rules Change

There has been a positive USGA rules change for 2017 that has been adopted as a local rule.

When a player's ball lies on the putting green, there is no penalty if the ball or ball-marker is accidentally moved by the player, her partner, her opponent, or any of their caddies or equipment.

The moved ball or ball-marker must be replaced as provided in Rules 18-2, 18-3 and 20-1.

This Local Rule applies only when the player's ball or ball-marker lies on the putting green and any movement is accidental.

Note: If it is determined that a player's ball on the putting green was moved as a result of wind, water or some other natural cause such as the effects of gravity, the ball must be played as it lies from its new location. A ball-marker moved in such circumstances is replaced.
