Present: Bill Norcross, Jim Hester and Frank Guglielmi; Casper golf: David Ford, David Bell and Andy Kesling; MGA representative: not present; WGA Representative: Sharon Andrew; and 9 Hole Ladies Representative: Carole Winters.
MGA: Andy Kesling reported the next MGA event would be the July 4th couples tournament.
WGA: No report.
9 Hole Ladies: No report.
Bill Norcross: Asked about sand buckets on par 3’s and broken tee recepticals on all tee boxes. He announced the formation of a club handicap and rules committee consisting of Virgil Elliot; John Phillips; Cynthia Cottrill; Nela Hodge, George Beres, Jim Stansbury, Jim Hester and Mike Lamere. The committee will be a sub-committee of the Golf Committee. Jim Hester will be the liaison for the Golf Committee and Mike Lamere will represent Billy Casper Golf. It was determined they should have their first meeting and organize prior to the July Golf Committee meeting which will be July 14th.
Jim Hester: Asked about priority for members when a course is closed for a tournament, (i.e. Latin America qualifier). Andy said members should be aware of the course schedule which is posted for the year and be sure to make their tee times 3 weeks in advance. There are several tournaments that have one course closed and a few that require both courses. When both are closed he can work with the other courses in the area to get a special rate for members. Also the Latin America qualifier has been moved forward to the 2nd week of January, when we typically have less play. Course markings and local rules will be addressed by the Handicap-Rules Committee.
David Ford: Casper Golf is working on next year’s budget which will concentrate almost entirely on maintenance for both courses since there are no major projects scheduled for the coming year.
