Handicap Report By Dennis Conway

TOURNAMENT UPDATES.
 
Hello there Cottonwood Men’s Club members. Just want to inform you about the new tournament format that Rob and I are implementing for this upcoming year. It is called GOLF GENIUS and it allows us to send emails to all of our members,in addition to letting you guys sign up for the tournament by pushing the PLAY button on the email that we send out. It even allows for you to let us know that you will not be playing on that particular Masters event. There also is a place to send a message to us if you want to play in a particular foursome or for whatever questions you may have. We used this format for the past 2 tournaments and it seems to run pretty smoothly. It even allows us to put the TEE BOX that you will be playing from. For all of you out there that were not aware of this,let me explain. We have decided to allow any of our members that have a combination of handicap and age over 90 to play from the FORWARD tees. Of course the handicaps will be computed on whichever tee that you decide to play from.  So guys,when you get the email from DENNIS CONWAY or GOLF GENIUS,please respond one way or another. Currently I send this out a couple of times a month to those that haven’t responded because of the new system.  If you have any questions or feedback for Rob or I,please feel free to let us know.  See you all at the next Masters on February 11th.

2017 Cottonwood Men’s Club Turkey Shoot and Election Night. 41 golfers showed up for the Annual Turkey Shoot. A shotgun start at 2pm went off on time. Everybody was playing for a Turkey. There were 37 Turkey’s and 4 Cornish Game Hens. As is with tradition, the 4 highest scores took  home the Game Hens. Those players were Barry Williamson, Charlie Smith, Mike Vogt and George Perot. The other 37 players all took home 18lb Turkeys. Ron Cady shot a net 31 and I believe that was the lowest score. Well done Kado. Everyone was treated to a Traditional Thanksgiving Dinner complete with pumpkin and apple pie. A big Thank You to Lupe, Amanda and Karen for the excellent food, drink and service. You three are the backbone for Cottonwood’s food and beverage department. Election Night was held and the results were announced. Retiring from the Board of Governors are John Damron and Johnny Cruse. Thank You John for your calm and cool leadership as a board member. You always think things thru and come up with great insight. Thank You Johnny Cruse for your willingness to run the point with Western Golf and the transition from the Gamboa Gang to the new ownership. We know the countless hours you spent behind the scenes and it was very much appreciated.  The board will miss both of you. Thanks again for your service. Introducing the 2018 Cottonwood Board of Governors. George Perot was re-elected as President, Rob Blamers was re-elected as Tournament Director, Barry Williamson was re-elected as Treasurer, Dale Hilmen was elected as a new board member. Congrats Mr. Hilmen. Mid term board members are Mike Keeney, Dennis Conway and Bo Cunningham. President Gorge Perot gave his state of the union addresss and opened the floor to club members for ideas. Continue reading “Secretary’s Report November 2017” »

Secretary’s Report October 2017

Secretary Report By Bo Cunningham

 Attention membership. It is that time of year again. On November 16th, we will hold our annual Turkey Shoot and Election Night. The Tee Time will be the traditional 2pm. There are 3 openings on the board for 2018. Any club member interested in running for a position on the Cottonwood Board of Governors please respond to me at boc@inetworld.net no later than November 7th, 2017. This position requires a two year commitment as a board member. Cottonwood has bottomed out and can go nowhere but up! We are seeing vast improvement in course conditions. The Food Service needs to step it up and we are confident that will eventually happen. Your board has been working very hard with Western Golf to stress what needs to happen to make Cottonwood Great Again. Mark your calendar for the Turkey Shoot/Election Night. I we will  see you all there. Thank You. 

Bo Cunningham
