ALERT:8am start at HMR

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. 

Raveneaux Pairings


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


Pairing Coordinators Needed

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!  

Pairings for Cypresswood

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.

Give us your Opinion

Bob Dahl introduced us to a format of play that we’ve rarely used in the past.  He called it the “Pros and Semi-Pros”.  For those who were not there Bob selected the A&B players and had them play on a “pro” flight where the format was individual stroke play with the top six chosen by their low net score. Muligans were frowned upon, and rules were enforced to a much greater extent than normal for our group. The Semi-Pros (C&D) players played standard ARGG team-golf.

We’d like to find our from all of you, whether you played or not, what you think of this format?
