Mens Mixer January 4th, 2017

A Happy New Year to all golfers and best wishes for 2017,

The game for January 4th will be the 4 man net stableford format. Double bogey or more is zero points, a bogey is 1 point, a par is 2 points, a birdie is 3 points, and an eagle is 4 points. Gross score for hdcp purpose are recorded on top of score card, and the combined stableford points on each hole is recorded on the bottom.

Duane Bender will be accepting your $50 peso donations this week. Thank you Duane.

Over the Christmas break, the course is taking a beating from all the tourists. please make a special effort to fill all divots and repair as many ball marks as possible.

I am starting this week to attach a Xcel handicap sheet to this sign up note. This sheet is compiled by Phil on a weekly basis. The “membership” tab is the handicap based on the scores you have emailed Phil (outside of Mens Mixer rounds). This may differ from your own handicap that you keep for yourself, as you may not email Phil every round you play. If you want a legitimate handicap, that can be verified for tournament purposes, email your rounds directly from the golf cart to, and save yourself a lot of work. (Note: one email to Phil covers both persons on the score card).

Until Wednesday…..

Wednesday Mens Mixer December 21, 2016


Thank you for your kind donations for the golf staff that take care of our needs. I am sure their families will appreciate this gesture.

The game for this week will be the “Christmas Waltz” which is also called 1-2-3. 4 man teams net score. So, starting at hole No. 1 – one best score is recorded. Hole No.2 – the best 2 scores are recorded. Hole No.3 – the best 3 scores are recorded. This process then repeats itself around the course.

I will gladly accept your $50 peso contributions this week.

I asked Phil if he wanted us golfers to remove the broad leaf grass we find on some of the greens. This is Phil’s reply:

You can remove them, but if you do not get the roots it will continue. This is actually a form of bent grass and populates down here when the bermuda starts going dormat. Because of the cooler temps, the bermuda leaves ´´holes´´ in which this can come up in. This problem will not go away for another 2 to 3 years in our program of progression.

So, I leave it to you, if the broad leaf annoys you, then carefully remove them. The broad leaf grass is well rooted, so try not to make a mess of the green. Be aware, that the brown spot of soil that is left after the broad leaf is removed will probably take some time to fill in, so try not to disturb the area around the pin (2-3 yard radius). I am sure that Phil will be monitoring this, and if he feels that we are doing more damage than good, he will ask us to stop.

As always, thanks for taking care of the course by filling divots & repairing ball marks. See you Wednesday.
