2017 Fall Golf Outing Winners
It was a beautiful day for golf, The weather was great and the players were great, The golf swings were not always great
but we had fun anyway. In any case, here are the winners of yesterday's competition and the amount of their winnings in Pro Shop credits.
Closest to the line on #6
Ray Bernstein - $30
Closest to the Pin on #8
Don Bancroft - $30
Closest to the Pin on #15

Dick Hagan - $40
Low Team Gross - 2nd Place - Score of 74
Alan Eugley - $40
Jim Graves - $40
Willie Salmond - $40
Lee Backus - $40
I did not plan to have a 2nd Place Team Gross but was able to do so because of the reduction in Greens Fees
due to the bunker work going on. I may have quoted $40 last night but a $30 prize for the second place team
used up the extra prize money,
The Pro Shop already has the prize money. I will copy them on the winner's names this morning. You must use your credit 'up
by the end of this year. It will not carry over to the Spring.
I hope you all enjoyed it. We will do it again in the Spring.
P.S. Thanks to Bob Mitchell for assisting in setting up the contest

HI Guys - I am sending this email to everyone who I think expressed interest in joining the Y's men Travel Team.
Some of you may not want to be included in this group and others may be missing? With time, I will straighten that out.
I am writing to suggest we play a round of golf at Longshore this coming Thursday to start the season and get to know each other a little bit.
In the future we will play other local courses about once a month. We can discuss future plans on Thursday.
I believe we can play Thurs 4/27 in the afternoon (between 12 and 1 PM). I will have to confirm that but didn't want to
do so until I knew people were interested in playing. There are tee times available on Thursday
but I will have to reserve them quickly if we are going to play. Let me know ASAP if you are interested in playing that day.
Also let me know, by replying to this email, if you would like to be removed from this list or know someone who you know would like to be added.
OK - respond quickly now.

Spring Golf Outing
Wednesday, May 13, 2015
Date & Location: Wednesday, May 13th, Longshore Golf Course.
Tee Times: First Tee Time at 11:00AM
Entry Fee: The entry fee is $55, payable in cash at the First Tee. The entry fee includes Green Fees, so you do not need to go to the Cashier Window. It also includes Tournament Entry Fee, Cart Rental and Range Balls.
Scorecards: Please use the Y’s Men “Team Scorecards” provided at the First Tee.
Posting of Scores. After the completion of play, the scorecards should be signed and turned in at the Pro Shop Desk.
Format: “Florida” or “Step Aside” Scramble with a twist: The basic rules for our Florida Scramble are:
All four team members tee off on each hole. A fixed rotation order should be established before the first tee shot is hit and maintained through the entire round. After teeing off, the team selects the best tee shot and that ball is marked.
The other three team members pick up their ball and PLACE (not drop) them within one club length (no closer to the hole) of the chosen tee shot. The player whose shot is chosen does not play from this location (he “steps aside”).
This procedure (the player whose shot is chosen not hitting), is followed on every shot for the remainder of the hole until the best ball on the green is chosen and marked.
All players putt. The first putts need to be made from within 3 inches (approx. a putter club head) of the original marked spot (no closer to the hole). The first ball to go in the hole is counted for the team score. No gimmies.
If a team has only 3 players, to compensate for the missing player (on a fixed rotation basis), one player for that hole will play as if he or she were the fourth player (for the entire hole). That means that if you are in the rotation for the missing player and your shot is chosen, you do get to shoot from that location.
If a ball you choose to play is in the rough, a hazard (sand, water, etc.), or out of bounds, you cannot place a ball outside of the hazard or rough, or in bounds, even if relief is within one club length away. Out of bounds is out of bounds and cannot be the chosen shot.
The team score for each hole should be recorded on the Y’s Men Scorecard provided at the 1st Tee. This scorecard will be turned in at the Pro Shop at the end of the Round
Tees: Play will be from the WHITE tee markers. Y’s Men 80 years and older may play from the YELLOW tees if their age plus their golf handicap totals more than 98. The honor system will be used for those who do not have an official golf handicap.
Low Team Gross – the lowest total score without adjustment.
(in the case of a tie for low team gross score, the winning team will be decided on the basis of the best score for the last nine holes, the last six holes, the last three holes and finally the 18th hole. If this formula fails to produce a winner, the same formula will be applied to the first nine holes).
Low Net Team – the lowest team score after adjustment. (will use the Calaway Scoring System with ties settled as in Low Gross). The Team winning Low Gross will not be eligible for the Low Net prize.
Closest to the Line on #6
Closest to the Pin on #8
Closest to the Pin on #15
Longest Drive on #16 (must be in the fairway)
Winners will be announced at the Black Duck (about 5:30 PM). Winners will also be announced by email (to all participants) and may be recognized at the next Y’s Men’s General Meeting.
Ride, no walking. It’s a pace of play issue. Please play “ready golf” to keep the pace of play moving. Cart rental is included in the $55 entry fee payable at the first tee. Carts will be assigned by the Pro Shop.
Range Balls: John Cooper, the Longshore Pro, is providing Complementary Range Balls for all participants.
Governing Rules: The rules of the United States Golf Association (“USGA”) and the Longshore Men’s Golf Association (“LGMA”) Local Rules shall govern all play.
Course Etiquette: Please take the responsibility to ensure that divots are replaced, bunkers are raked, and ball marks on the greens are properly repaired.
Photographs: If you can, take some pictures and email copies to I’ll try and use them on the Y’s Men Website, or at the General Meeting.
The Spirit of Game: Unlike many sports, golf is played for the most part, without supervision of referee or umpire. This tournament will rely on the integrity of the Y’s Men to sort out any issues that arise within their foursomes with courtesy and sportsmanship with the overall goal of participating in a rewarding day of golf with friends.
Informal Gathering at The Black Duck: Immediately after the round, an informal gathering will take place at the Black Duck starting at 4:45PM. The Black Duck will provide appetizers and there will be a cash bar. Please tip the waitress individually for drinks that you order.
