Yesterday was Beat the Pro and 18 Women of came out and played a not cart path only course with sandy greens. Course looks in good shape and nice to play 18 from the fairway I'm sure! The Pro's, Matt and Josh, were joined by our course super Jason and according to Josh, Matt had a "pretty special round". I guess so, he shot a 69, holing out a bunker shot on 6 for an eagle 2. WOW!! Josh didn't do too badly himself shooting a 76. They did play from the member tees this year (so that they played to a zero handicap).* No wonder only three beat both pros.
Summer EC has started. $10 to me by cash, Venmo or Zelle.**
A reminder of some important date changes:Spring rules clinic and the 4 person modified scramble is 4/20. Clinic will be 8:30 in the MDR (main dining room) and the 4 person modified scramble at 10. MOF.We host Sierra Gold play on April 27 so no Thursday ladies play.Saturday Match Play at Catta Verdera is 4/22 not 4/29.
And starting 4/20 sweeps will now be $5 CASH on the range. Then cash back for winners apres golf. Sorry Becky (check her winnings) I forgot that Beat the Pro is a betting shop credit game and not sweeps.
Now, the winners and their winnings:Cindy Foster shot a 68 and bet $10 on beating both so $40 Deedee Owen also shot a 68 and bet $20 on beating both - $80 (Big money winner of the day).Becky Saxby with the best score of the day, 67, bet only $2.50 (really..pay attentions Beck). Doubled her money to $10. Woohoo!!Mimi Scott's 73 beat Josh and her bet of $10 on each netted her $30.Leslie Williams shot 75 and also beat Josh. She bet $20 so now has $60 to spend. Go wild girl!
The rest of the field has shop credit in your account for whatever amount you bet. Nice to see Mary H, Lynne E, Jeannie W and Cindy F out for the game.
Until next time,Trisha,The gimpy one ... ahhh but not for long! *Changes had to be made.... the pros lost to everyone last year playing from the black tees! Haha! I guess a fairer contest for them this year. And what's to lose- you are putting money into shop credit that you double if you win, and don't lose if you don't beat them. Win - win.
**Summer EC stickers should be ready soon. Pick them up from the Pro Shop.Participants so far:Joellen, Ann M, Kathy H, Shelley N, Jenn, Mimi, Maggie, Leslie, Lisa L, Kathy K, Becky, Robbin, Deb McG, and Lecia.
