Chris and Jeff Hunt
 

On Saturday and Sunday, March 3rd & 4th, the club conducted its annual Couples Club Championship. Aside from the wind, the fifteen (15) couple field had perfect conditions for their event. After 18-holes, it would be difficult to outscore the duo of Chris and Jeff Hunt with their 76 gross. They paired their second day for a 152 gross, 134 net to earn the title Couples Club Champions. Mark and Judy Kontny, 2016 Champions, battled hard to only fall short by one stroke. The Kontny’s did earn top honor for the overall net award. Craig and Rosalie Wisotzki and John and Jacquie Reed won low gross honors in their respective flights. Newlyweds, John and Leigh Gallishaw, and Bill and Marge Monteith earned top net honors in their flights.

Congratulations to our Champions!

Mike Galloway and Ron Philo

Mike Galloway etched his name into the history of Sawgrass with his ace on #7 South on Saturday, March 3. Mike holed out from 147 yards with his 5 wood on the gusty day. This was the first hole in one on #7 South since Greg Beedy on March 18, 2017. Great shot, Mr. Galloway.

Day 2 Results

FINAL ROUND FRIDAY MORNING

The second day of the SWGA Member-Member was treated to a cool and blustery day. Indu Sapra & Barbara Mulcahy's play was anything but with two 6-point matches that helped move them into the overall lead. Yesterday's leaders, Peggy Widicus & Ginny Stott are still in the hunt for the overall prize with a 21.5 point total that puts them in a tie with the teams of Shelia Hartman & Grace Jones, Jean Smiley & Sharon Ellis, and Beverly Beck & Bonnie Taft, all flight leaders. Laura Dobbs & Ana Leaird round off the flight leaders in the hotly contested First Flight. Please click the links above for complete results and tomorrow's hole assignments and matchups. We look forward to an exciting conclusion!

Good luck to our participants.



In this, our busiest of seasons, please review some suggestions to keep to the Sawgrass suggested pace of play. Respect those with whom you are sharing the golf course by:

  o Continuous putting, the first player to putt should continue until he/she holes his/her ball, the others should do the same
o Dropping players whose ball is not on the green at the front of the green and then driving the cart to the exit area closest to the next tee
o driving to the ball of the first player to hit, drop that player off and then drive to the ball to be hit next
  * Make an effort to minimize the number of times the cart “stands still”
* Before exiting the cart, the first player to hit should take:
  • A scoop of sand to fill his divot
• Range finder or GPS
• Two or three likely clubs to hit
  o Bring rakes into bunkers
o After hitting your shot, hold onto your clubs in the front seat until the cart stops at the next position
o Marking your score at the next teeing area to clear the green quickly for approaching groups
o Forgetting about the honor system at the tee, let the player who gets there first hit first
o Communicating yardages – if you are getting your own yardage tell your companions how far you are, they may be close enough to use your distance as a guidepost

Tee times are scheduled in 7.5 minutes intervals. This means the fourth player in each group needs to have played their second shot not more than 7.5 minutes after the first player tees off. To allow this to happen, the group on the green needs to have replaced the flagstick in the hole in less than fourteen minutes on each first hole.

If you know this is going to be an issue for you or your group, consider playing at a time of day when the course is not as crowded – usually early or late.

Looking for a 260 yard+ tee shot with an average swing speed?
Launching it higher will help. Just how high would you need to launch your tee shots?


If you know a child between the ages of 6 and 13, do you want their sporting participation to be about
becoming an elite athlete, or do you really want them to have fun socializing while learning some
movement and balance skills? Let them try golf!

 

There’s a lot of evidence supporting the argument that we should make sure that enjoyment and a
multi-sport approach are fundamental to their early development.

 
 
As coaches we want children to be safe, to feel settled, comfortable and integrated with other children,
and of course to progress. But as well as progress, we need to provide them with the levels of enjoyment
and fulfilment that will keep them active, happy, and connected to a pastime that
will be very valuable to their life. 
 

Come and talk to us about the best way to introduce golf to your child
or how to develop their ability.

 
 
Here's to great golf!
Ron
