Is it really June already?

If you haven’t been in the golf shop lately, we would love for you to stop on by. Kathy has been very busy bringing in new product that we hope you will enjoy. We have some amazing soft blankets, logo glassware, and new leather head covers along with many other items. We are expecting our new HVCC beach towels any day (perfect now that the pool is open).

If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to check out the new Member Only Logo we have on some of the headwear. Any items with this logo will ONLY be sold to members. If you like it, we will look to expand to some other product in the shop. We would love to hear your feedback.

Monday outside tournaments are a very important part of our season and offer a great source of revenue. This year, we have a full slate of events starting with June. Each Monday this month, we have an outside event. We will be sure to keep you updated on tee time availability and assure you we will get you on the course as soon as possible. Because many of these tournaments are well over 150 players, golf carts may be very limited or possibly not available. Again, we will do our best to keep you updated as to what to expect.

Speaking of golf carts, we would love to ask for your help in pairing up in carts within your group. As this season continues to get busier, we want to make sure we have carts available to all those who want to play. We thank you in advance for your help and cooperation!

Have you heard about “The Hook-a-Rama”? If you have and have not signed up yet, time is running out! If you haven’t, you are either new to the club or been living under a rock. The Hook is Hidden Valley’s most exciting Men’s event of the year. The 2018 Hook is from July 11-14 and is sure to bring memories to last a life time. There are still a few open spots. If you would like any further information, please contact the Golf Shop.

As always, thank you for your support of this great club and remember to fill those divots, fix those ball marks, and rake those bunkers!

Rules Trivia:

In preparation for the Match Play and Hook…

Q. In a four-ball match, A and B are partners and their balls lie on the putting green. A touches the green in pointing out B’s line for putting. The spot which A touches is also on his (A’s) line of putt. What is the ruling?

A. B is disqualified for the hole under Rule 8-2b. A is disqualified for the hole under Rule 16-1a because he touched his line of putt; the fact that it was in the act of pointing out a line for putting for his partner is irrelevant.
