                                                    WOULD YOU LIKE YOUR BALL
                                                      TO LAND IN ONE OF THESE?

This photo was taken early Friday morning on the 6th hole, so not many golfers had passed by. The question is "would you like your ball to land in one of these lovely gouges"? Probably not.

Ryan and his crew are doing an excellent job working on our course and getting it in tip top condition, so as golfers lets help make Ryan's job a little easier and repair all your divots. Before teeing off on either the first hole or the 10th hole make sure you take a sand container or two with you, and repair all your divots and any others that have been missed. soon there will be no divots like the ones shown above.

Another part all golfers must do in keeping the greens in smooth condition is to repair your pitch marks. When entering the greens if you spot other pitch marks that have been left, repair them. Again keep this practice up and the only pitch marks to repair are the ones you make.

Our course is looking and playing in great condition, do your part in keeping it this way.

At Redwood Meadows, we are getting close to some of the major tournaments of the season, i.e. club championships, Ryder and Solheim cups, and also the mens closing tournament. Here is a rule that must be adhered to before and during these competitions.

7-1 Before or between Rounds

On any day of a Match-play competition, a player may practice on the competition course before a round

Before a round or play-off on any day of a stroke-play competition, a competitor must not practice on the competition course or test the surface of any putting green on the course by rolling a ball or roughening or scraping the surface.
   When two or more rounds of a stroke play competition are to be played over consecutive days, a competitor must not practice between those rounds on any competition course remaining to be played, or test the surface of any putting green on such course by rolling a ball or roughening or scraping the surface.



Where does this apply to Redwood. If the tournament is set to be a shot gun start. Let's say your tee off hole is hole 13, and you are playing in a stroke play tournament, you CANNOT practice putting on the 12th hole green. If playing in the Ryder or Solheim cup, which are both Match Play tournaments, then practicing would be allowed.

Welcome all members of Redwood Meadows, Golf and Country Club.

This is the first posting of a new information site linked to the Redwood Members web site.

This site will be used by the club captain to post articles on golf, primarily Rules of Golf and where they would apply when playing Redwood Meadows.  From time to time posts will include golf etiquette, and also the care of the golf course while out enjoying a round.

As your club captain I appreciate any feedback, comments and/or suggestions about golf related items that you would like to share with all members.

Stay tuned for the next information posting.
