Greetings golfers,

 

Joy Eon

Well, at last we pass the Senior Championship trophy from Bernice Vadnais on to the next winner after 2 years of rainouts!  Bernice was unable to defend her title this year due to a back issue.  We’re thinking of you Bernice and hope you feel better soon.  Congrats to Mary Brandes for becoming our new Senior Champion.  Rumor has it she recently won at the World Senior Games as well.  Well done Mary!  Full results on the Senior Championship are listed under results.  There were five age divisions as well as an under 55.  Thank you to all who supported this event.

 Our next Championship on the schedule is the Maine Women’s Amateur that will take place Monday, July 27 through Wednesday, July 29.  It should prove to be an exciting event.  We have 83 players entered and there should be some good competition in all four flights.  This event will be held at Biddeford Saco Country Club and tee times begin at 7:30.  If you chose not to enter, please feel free to come by and cheer on the participants.  I surely hope Mother Nature cooperates and provides us with nice weather each day.

 On August 4th our B Championship will take place at Riverside Golf Course. I hope all who have entered this event have a great time and some nice, friendly competition as well!  Good luck to all!

 The Girl’s Golf Fair took place Sunday after some inclement weather forced a postponement.  Although the day was hot, it was pretty well attended and the girls seemed to enjoy the afternoon.  Many of our members, led by Terri Messer, were there to help out and assure a successful event.  Thanks to those of you who took the time to be a part of this fun day.

 Regarding our voucher system, changes are in the works and we’ll keep you posted as to what those changes are when they occur.  In the meantime, thanks for being patient while we tweak the process.  At this time, if you have voucher $ due and want to receive it, please email Barbara Freeman to make a request for funds.

 Sign ups for Fairlawn and the B Championship at Riverside are open now and next week it’s time to register for the popular 2 ball to be held at Augusta and Fox Ridge August 11.  The week of 7/27 is the time to get in to an open tournament at Freeport scheduled for August 18.  Remember to register your team 8/3 to 8/8 for 2 best balls of four at Brunswick or Poland Springs.

 Wow, where is the summer and Maine golfing season going?? 

 Play well and enjoy,

Joy

  

Sometimes it’s handy to know your handicap, in advance, before playing a new course.

To find out follow this link to the USGA site where you can enter information and find your number.

Scroll down to find the app.

Also, if you have a calculator handy, you can do it yourself. Multiply your index number by the slope rating and then divide by 113.

Have fun with the numbers.
