Good Morning All, well we are coming to the end of another great season and looking forward to our summer season. Just a few things to note we have started with the burn out of the tees we will be leveling and re-sprigging, this process will take a few weeks as we need to apply several applications to thoroughly kill the current grass and any weeds. Once this process is finished we will then be on several temporary tees until the new tees have grown in. We cant predict a exact time due to the weather but we are planning on a swift and successful turn around. 

Any questions or concerns please let me know. This is an exciting time  for us and look forward to the continuing progress of our golf courses.

Report from LFGA:  Freda stated that Davey had worked all summer to get the course in shape for the season.  Steve Allbritton asked that if anyone sees a problem on the course to please enter it into the fix-it book. Jim Eggers looks at the book daily.  The sand traps that were supposed to be repaired over the summer have not been done.  In reference to when the repair of the retaining wall on Hole # 17 will take place, the time will be answered at the next Association meeting.    Freda also informed us that Jim Eggers is sent a list of questions about the condition of the course before each Association Meeting.  This seems to be working well as Jim can come to the meeting prepared with the answers.

Winners for September were:

Judy Chase 1st

Dede Martin 2nd

Karen Pierce 3rd

Winners for October were:

Maryellen McCabe 1st

Nancy Finora 2nd

Linda Gromacki 3rd



Summer Addresses:  All members who go North for the Summer were asked to supply their summer addresses.

LEGA:  Maryellen reported for Dede Martin.  Dede sent out an email to the membership and wanted to make sure that you all knew that when you go to a LEGA event, it is up to you to post your score from that club and make sure you post it as a ďtournament scoreĒ.  This is important so that all your gross scores count as they should toward your handicap.  When you post your own scores, including LEGA Tournaments, if you exceed your maximum, you must adjust your score before posting it.

Discussion of changes to handbook:  on page 2- arrival time to play.  Membership was asked to please arrive early enough so that all teams are present and can get carts set.  If you are not playing and you have signed up please let the Pro Shop know so that teams can be put in place and they do not have to make a last minute call to see if you are or are not playing.

Handicap Issues:  Maryellen asked that we remember to POST ALL OUR SCORES.


Reminder about Rules for Entering the Club Championship:

   1)     For those players starting play in September, you must have posted a minimum of 10 scores by February 1st.

   2)     For those players starting play in January, you must have posted 5 scores by February 1st.

3)   You are also able to post a 9 hole score.  Two 9 hole scores will be combined.  Just make sure you are playing with another golfer.  If the round was played alone it needs to be marked as such and it is  not used in your handicap.

Freda asked about the new Local Rule that Steve initiated about players not being forced to hit over all the water holes.  If you feel that you cannot make it over, you can take a stroke and carry your ball to the drop zone.   Freda stated that as of this date this has not been brought to LFGA.

A discussion ensued about the fact that this new Local Rule will have to be discussed and voted on to amend our handbook.

Freda also mentioned that the LFGA General Meeting will be held on November 21, 2109 at 6:00 p.m. and all meetings are posted on Lake Fairways Homeowners website.

The meeting adjourned at 12:00.
