TriMt Ladies Golf Club Monthly Newsletter

July 2019

VERY IMPORTANT!!! If you want to play in our weekly Leagues (Tuesday or Thursday) please call the Pro Shop (360-887-3004….press #3) to sign-up BEFORE the deadline.

Deadline is Sundays at 5pm to play on Tuesdays and you’ll need to contact the Pro Shop at least 48 hours prior to play on Thursdays. These deadlines are to ensure the Pro Shop reserves enough tee times to handle our group. Don’t be left out.

If you signed up for League Play (Tuesday or Thursday) and you find out that you cannot play, PLEASE!!! call the Pro Shop (360-887-3004….press #3) and have yourself removed from the list. The groups playing will wait as long as they can for everyone who signed up to get there before they tee off. Don’t be the one who holds up play!

For Tuesday League Cancellation: If your cancellation request is AFTER 5PM on Sunday, please text Georgie Chapman at 502-310-1533 and let her know. It’s important that Georgie knows who is playing so that she can set up the pairings and make sure we have enough tee times.

PACE OF PLAY!!! Recently we’ve encountered some issues about pace of play. Here is the Rule of thumb…Your group needs to stay behind the group in front of you NOT in front of the group behind you. In other words…KEEP UP WITH THE GROUP IN FRONT OF YOU.

If you happen to fall behind, which will happen in a round, then try these tricks to catch up:

1. After two members have putt out then have those two move on to the next tee box and tee off.

2. If you have reached you maximum score on the hole, please pick up and move on to the next hole.

3. Play Ready Golf! If someone is still trying to find their golf ball or still has not arrived at their golf ball then go ahead and hit.

4. Walk & Talk. Don’t Stop and Talk.

5. Never walk backwards to get your cart/bag or any clubs. Leave them where you will walk to the next hole.

See Something, Say Something, Do Something!!!

Rule of the Month: Rule 11 - Ball in Motion Accidentally Hits Person, Animal or Object; Deliberate Actions to Affect Ball in Motion

Purpose of Rule: Rule 11 covers what to do if your ball in motion hits a person, animal, equipment or anything else on the course. When this happens accidentally, there is no penalty and you normally must accept the result, whether favorable or not, and play the ball from where it comes to rest. Rule 11 also restricts you from deliberately taking actions to affect where any ball in motion might come to rest.
