CENTENNIAL LOGOThe way we play golf has changed over the years. In the past, weekend golf was a male dominated activity. Men who worked all week played their golf on Saturdays and Sundays, women and children were not allowed and they were limited to using the course on weekdays.

That is no longer the case. Casual golf, couples and family play have become more prevalent at clubs across the country. In an effort to get more into our already busy lives shorter rounds of nine holes have replaced the 18-hole round for many golfers.

Because of things like these we are seeing a change at RGC. The once highly coveted Saturday and Sunday morning time frame often has gaps of open tee times. To get more members playing on the weekend morning the Board of Directors has directed me to implement two new weekend policies.

1) Associate members who pay a $20 green fee will now have the opportunity to play on weekend mornings provided there is space available on the day before they wish to play, (Friday for Saturday & Saturday for Sunday).

2) Full members who wish to have guests on a weekend morning may due so with permission of the golf pro. The same 'day before' procedure will be followed.

We are hopeful that this will get more members utilizing the weekend mornings, if you have any questions on these policies please be sure to contact me or one of my staff.

gotta do it We are almost at that time of year. The time when we aerate the greens. Originally scheduled for this coming Monday, Course Superintendent Bill Yanakakis has moved this necessary maintenance procedure to Monday September 8th. The course will be closed that day until 3:00 pm.
August 29th through September 1st is Patriot Golf Day across the nation.
Patriot Golf Day is the flagship fundraiser of the Folds of Honor Foundation that provides funds for post-secondary education for families of servicemen and women who have been killed or injured serving our nation. You can support the Folds of Honor by donating in the golf shop or by participating in one of the weekend golf shop tournaments.
The club championship tournaments are complete and we have some repeat winners and some new champs.

Kevin Olson successfully defended his men's title with a victory over Caleb Tanson in 37 holes. Margaret Hale won the Marge Curtis Cup Club Championship with a 4&2 victory over defending champ Dani Dragonas.

In the flights Pete Ryan won the 1st flight, Bill Lumbruno won the 2nd flight, Steve Attwood won the 3rd flight and Bill Marotta won the 4th flight. Elaine Halveson defended her Gladys Smith 1st Flight Championship by defeating Marian Parco.

Congratulations to our Champions!
