postheadericon 2015 Letter from the President

Happy New Golf YearFellow Members,

It’s 2015, and believe it or not, it will get warmer, the snow will melt someday, and we will be playing golf in less than 2 months. I hope all have had a good holiday season. Enclosed you will find a copy of the 2015 membership application, the tournament schedule, last years roster, men’s club tournament policy and Mid Week League application.

Our annual meeting will be held at Clark Recreation Center on Wednesday, March 18th, 2015. Dan Covert has arranged to provide the club with early registration from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. and our meeting will start promptly at 7:00. There were no changes to the dues from 2014. Please carefully review your information (telephone number, email address and mailing address) on the enclosed roster and let us know if any changes are needed. Check your friend’s information too.

postheadericon 2014 Letter from the President

Fellow Members:

It’s 2014, and soon we will be teeing it up again at the Rock. I hope all have had a good holiday season.

Our annual meeting will be held at Clark Recreation Center on Wednesday, March 19th, 2014. Dan Covert has arranged to provide the club with early registration from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. and our meeting will start promptly at 7:00. When you review the membership application you will note an increase to the over seventy and under thirty dues to $100. This was needed to cover the increasing costs of MGA memberships, and because of the increasing number of member’s who are 70. There is also a new rate for our over 80 year old members. Please review your information on the enclosed roster and let us know if any changes are needed. Check your friend’s information too. We have spots open for non-resident members of the club. If you wish to sponsor a non-resident member, please see a club officer.

postheadericon 2012 Letter from the President

Fellow Members:

I hope each of you enjoyed the off-season and are looking forward to a great 2012 golfing season. I think there were a couple of highlights to mention from the previous season. The first being we had a winner of the hole in one pool after 3 years. Congratulations to Denis Barry. The Clubs biggest moment, in case any of you missed it, of course was the Challenge Cup victory over Rotella after too many years to count. The Cup will sit proudly on a shelf in the snack bar this season and hopefully for many more years to come. Great job by the Challenge Cup Team.

 

Very Important!

Our annual meeting will be held at Clark Recreation Center on Wednesday, March 7th, 2012. Registration will be from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m and our meeting will start promptly at 7:00. There has been a change to all membership dues in 2012 please see the attached applications. This is the first increase in over 5 years, but it is a minor increase which we need. Also to raise some funds we have been given permission by the town to have a limited number of non residents join the club. We have decided to allow only 10 non residents in as we do not want to over burden the tournaments. They will have to be approved by the Golf committee, pay higher dues and nonresident rates. If you wish to sponsor a non resident member please see a club officer. You may bring your applications to the meeting or mail to:

The Men’s Club Committee has put together an outstanding schedule for the upcoming 2012 season. Don’t forget to look at the schedule and take note of the 4 tournaments that are weighted more heavily than the others. This I believe worked well in helping us get the Challenge Cup back. The reason being 3 of the 4 are in the last month of the season and that was the committee thinking. The Member-Guest Tournament will be held on Saturday September 15th this year. Last year’s event (with a lot of the members help) from playing in it or buying raffle tickets helped us raise the most money ever. As you know this tournament is for a very worthy cause since we donate $2500 each year in scholarships to local schools .Again with your help we hope to raise more money for junior golf and increase our scholarship donations, but we need more member participation. I urge everyone to play in this event or at least help with raising more funds.

 

The officers for this year are:

President Rich Nolte
Advisor Ray Mannion
Treasurer Jeff Reissman
Handicap Chairman Dave Singleton Tournament/Rules Chairman Mike Snell
Secretary/Website Dir. Marc Niederhoffer
Website Administrator Tom Demont
Member/Guest Chairmen Marc Niederhoffer, Rich Nolte,Mike Snell and Dennis Nelson
Member Guest Fund Raisers Tsilla Flint, Jim Matteotti and Dennis Nelson

 

2012 Men’s Club Tournament Requirements

In our continuing effort to make our tournaments fair we will require the following:

 All members must have active and updated handicaps

 For all tournaments and Tuesday night league scores we, the committee, will post your scores. What that means is just turn in the printed score card we provide and we will post all scores.

 Starting this year anyone wishing to play in the president’s cup or club championship must have a minimum of 4 scores posted before the sign up date for these tournaments.

One of the most critical issues for an organization to run well is communication. It is absolutely necessary for every member to walk into the locker room on a weekly basis and find out what is going on. The officers spend a lot of time and effort to form schedules, list pairings, and post future tournaments and outings so please read ALL of the bulletin boards in the locker room.

The No Show Policy is still in effect. It allows the guilty player to pay a $40 fine to avoid suspension

We will continue to have three (3) flights this year for the Challenge Cup and Club Championship. Last years’ Champs will continue to get a bye into the match-play portion for the current year, but will have to play for the #1 seed. The flights will be determined after the June 1st handicap revision is received.

Challenge Cup qualification remains the same this year. Again it will be by Net Score points. We will still take the three club champions and the top 6 from each flight. There will be 3 Golf Committee Picks based on who we feel is playing their best golf at the time leading up to the Challenge Cup. Also we will only go down the list of alternates to the 1st and 2nd alternate, and then the Golf Committee will fill the spots.

I feel obligated to remind everyone that we must improve Pace-Of-Play to make the game more enjoyable. This starts at the First Tee, which is the easiest place for The Men’s Club to try and help. You must check-in and be ready to tee off 10 minutes before your tee time. 

NOTE CHANGE 

Again this year we will have the 70/80 rule. All members who are 70 years old as of April 1, 2012 will only pay $80 to join the club.

The Hole-In-One Pool will be back again this year. I think it has been a great success and gets the juices flowing when you start seeing $ signs. As stated previously since we had a winner last year the fee will only be $10 to get in this year.

 

NOTICE Tuesday Night League

ALL Tuesday night league money must be paid at our March 7th meeting date or mailed to Jeff Reissman only (use address above). This is the only way you are able to pay. Any questions, please contact Robert Handler or Robert Hurwitz. Thanks again to both gentlemen for running the Tuesday night league, they did an outstanding job.

This will be our only mailing this year. An updated roster and all pertinent information (see attachments) will be available on our WEBSITE (SPOOKROCK.NET) as well as in the locker room. Please notify Dave Singleton or Marc Niederhoffer of any incorrect information on attached roster.

Please feel free to contact me with any ideas that you may have to improve the club.

I hope to see you all on March 7th.

Sincerely,

Rich Nolte

 Important Change, Please Read

Challenge Cup qualification has small changes this year. Qualifying tournament points  will be still be based on your Net Score There will be one new feature in the scoring process that has changed. The last three tournaments of the year and the Governor’s Cup will be weighted more heavily for Challenge Cup points. This was decided on by the Committee so that the golfers who are playing their best golf at the end of the season have a better chance of making the Challenge Cup Team. We will still take the three club champions and the top 6 from each flight. There will be 3 Golf Committee Picks based on who they feel is playing their best golf at the time leading up to the Challenge Cup. Also we will only go down the list of alternates to the 1st and 2nd alternate, and then the Golf Committee will fill the spots.

 I feel obligated to remind everyone that we must improve Pace-Of-Play to make the game more enjoyable.   This starts at the First Tee, which is the easiest place for The Men’s Club to try and help. You must check-in and be ready to tee off 10 minutes before your tee time.

 Again this year we will have the 70/70 rule.  All members who are 70 years old as of April 1, 2011 will only pay $70 to join the club.

 The Hole-In-One Pool is back again this year. With no winner over the last 2 years the Pot should be about  $3000 this year. Anyone who was in it last year there will be a $10 fee to re-enter.  If you were not in it, but would like to enter, the fee is $30.

NOTICE Tuesday Night League

ALL Tuesday night league money can be paid at our March 9th meeting date or mailed to Jeff Reismann  or Rob Hurwitz, and must be received by March 9th.   Any questions, please contact Robert Handler or Robert Hurwitz. I would like to point out that the new chairmen running the Tuesday night league Robert H and Robert H did an outstanding job. They brought in some new ideas (Playoff for the overall number one team) and also left alone the foundation that worked so well over the years. So I think everyone in the Tuesday night league should go out of their way to personally say thank you to these two fine gentlemen.

 This will be our only mailing this year.  An updated roster and all pertinent information (see attachments) will be available on our  WEBSITE (SPOOKROCK.NET) as well as in the locker room.  Please notify Dave Singleton or Marc Niederhoffer of any incorrect information on attached roster.

Please feel free to contact me with any ideas that you may have to improve the club.

I hope to see you all on March 9th.

postheadericon 2010 Letter from The President

Fellow Members: 

I hope each of you enjoyed the off-season and are looking forward to a great 2010 golfing season. The 2009 season was an interesting one for me as President.  The high point was my first hole in one, the low point was losing the Challenge Cup.   My motto for 2010 “Bring the Cup Home to the ROCK!”

 Our annual meeting will be held at Clark Recreation Center on Wednesday, March 17th, 2010.  Registration will be from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.  The meeting will start promptly at 7:00.  The annual membership dues will remain at $125.  You may bring your applications to the meeting or mail to:

 Your 2010 Tournament Committee has put together an outstanding schedule for the upcoming season.  The Member-Guest Tournament will be held on Saturday September 25th this year, and we hope to raise more money for junior golf and increase our scholarship donations. Last year we gave $2,500 in scholarships, but we need more member participation.   I urge everyone to play in this event or at least help with raising more funds.

2010 Men’s Club Tournament Requirements

In our continuing effort to make our tournaments fair we will require the following:

  • All members must have active and updated handicaps
  • For all challenge cup tournaments and Tuesday night league scores we, the committee, will post your scores. What that means is just turn in the printed score card we provide and we will post all scores.
  • Starting this year anyone wishing to play in the president’s cup or club championship must have a minimum of 4 scores posted before the sign up date for these tournaments.      

Finally anyone found posting an incorrect score or forgetting to post a score will be warned on the first offense. The second infraction will result in disqualification for one or more tournaments. Golf is a gentleman’s game. Our intent is to respect its integrity and enforce what 99% of us already do.

 One of the most critical issues for an organization to run well is communication.   It is absolutely necessary for every member to walk into the locker room on a weekly basis and find out what is going on.  The officers spend a lot of time and effort to form schedules, list pairings, and post future tournaments and outings so please read ALL of the bulletin boards in the locker room.

 Over the last few years we made a slight change to the NO-SHOW policy which seemed to help.  It allows the guilty party to avoid any suspension by paying a $40 fine for the first offense.

 We will continue to have three (3) flights this year for the Challenge Cup and Club Championship.  Last years’ Champs will continue to get a bye into the match-play portion for the current year, but will have to play for the #1 seed.  The flights will be determined after the first handicap revision in June is received.

There will be 3 Golf Committee Picks based on who is playing their best golf at the time leading up to the Challenge Cup. Also we will only go down the list of alternates to the 1st and 2nd alternate, and then the Golf Committee will fill the spots.

 I feel obligated to remind everyone that we must improve Pace-Of-Play to make the game more enjoyable.   This starts at the First Tee, which is the easiest place for The Men’s Club to try and help. For the fifth consecutive year, we are giving the power to the starter to penalize players in tournaments for being late and/or not responding when their group is called to the tee.  We have given power to the rangers to penalize players for slow play.  You MUST check-in 10 minutes before your tee time and be ready to play when called.  Failure to do so will result in penalties as follows:

                                     1st offense-written warning

                                    2nd offense-2 stroke penalty

                                    3rd offense-Disqualification

 Again this year we will have the 70/70 rule.  All members who are 70 years old as of April 1, 2010 will only pay $70 to join the club.

 The Hole-In-One Pool is back!  Last year there was no winner so the money carries over and for anyone who was in it last year there will be a $10 fee to reenter.  If you were not in it, but would like to enter, the fee is $20.

NOTICE Tuesday Night League 

ALL Tuesday night league money must be paid at our March 17th meeting date or mailed to Jeff Reismann only (use address above).  This is the only way you are able to pay.    Any questions, please contact Bill Brunton, Robert Handler or Robert Hurwitz.

This will be our only mailing this year.  An updated roster and all pertinent information (see attachments) will be available on our NEW WEBSITE (SPOOKROCK.NET) as well as in the locker room.  Please notify Dave Singleton or Marc Niederhoffer of any incorrect information on attached roster.

 Please feel free to contact me with any ideas that you may have to improve the club.

I hope to see you all on March 17th.

 Sincerely,

 Rich Nolte
