A nice day at High Meadow Ranch that got just a tad muggy over the last few holes. Typical Houston summers. The Big winner was the team of Mr. Cooper, Mr. Cramer, Mr. Kearney, and Mr. Cook with a sterling 122 (-20). In second, carded out using USGA procedures, was the team of Mr. Blackburn, Mr. Godschalk, Mr. Canning, and Mr. Burkman, also 122.
Closest to the pin on HMR no. 9 was Mr. York, about 7-feet away and on no. 11, also about 7-feet away was Mr. Carr. Mr. Carr jetted in from Colorado to tee it up with us. It is really easy to travel with Netjets nowadays.
In looking over the scorecards, there were a few errors. It pays to double check (two people add up the numbers) as people are leaving money on the table. This math is costing money.
Don’t forget to sign up for Windrose next week. Tim Van Dinter is our pairings guru.
Our tee time this next week at High Meadow Ranch is going to be 8am. That will give us a little more cool morning air.
The change in tee time isn’t permanent, but we can see how this works. Feedback is always welcome. Mike Holy is our course Coordinator for HMR. I’m sure he wants to hear from you.
REMINDER: 9AM START TIME
NOTE: Hole assignments may change. I have not heard back from the club…
We’re going to shamble to whole way since this course is a tough one. Modify the shamble as follows:
- Par threes, no shamble. Everyone plays their own ball all the way…THREE low net.
- Par fours, shamble. Drive only, TWO low net
- Par fives, shamble. Drive and second shot, ONE low net
We’re playing Raveneaux next week. It’s a long, tough course, but lunch is always great.
Please note out start time at Raveneaux is always 9am. See you out there!
Every once in a while we make another plea for someone to help do pairings for a month. We have NO ONE signed up for the rest of 2017, except for Dan Newton in November. This job is vital to make the group function each week. I (Chuck) will be mostly unavailable for great chunks of time this summer due to travel plans. We need people to step up. Let me remind you, this job carries the highest prestige of any job we offer!
Attached are the pairings for tomorrow at the Cypress Course at Cypresswood. We’ll play two low net on the front and a modified shamble on the back nine. The weather is getting warmer, but its still not Houston summer, so it should be nice.
We had another good turnout this week. Thanks to all of you for the great recruiting job you’ve done! Last year we got down to averaging only 10-15 players each week, and now we’re doing almost 28-30 per week. This helps us when we approach the golf courses for prices and timing. Thanks AmocoPairings-Master_2017-Ver2.pdf
Attached are the pairings for tomorrow at Oakhurst. We had a number of special requests, so some of the teams looks a little lopsided. Not sure if that is bad or good, but thats the way it is for tomorrow. The special requests were honored because of people leaving, and new players.
UPDATED VERSION: Oakhurst Modified Pairings as of 10:10pm
