THE MAD POST

 

Thursday, July 25th, 2019


Jul 23
Last week we asked the question if you supported the notion of allowing members to have their dogs accompany them on the golf course on a restricted basis.

Some have wondered why we would ask the question; the reason is the growing number of members that had been asking if this could be permitted at Mad River. 

Jul 22
What!!!!  This happened to the 11th green on Men's Member Guest Day - How could that be? Please be mindful that we treat our course with respect. Thank you for your cooperation.

Ladies Day Trial: I am investigating the best timing to meet the needs of the majority of ladies that play on Tue. So for Aug. 6, 13, 20 Ladies Day will be held starting at 10 am for 18 holers and noon for nine holers with lunch, from the menu, following play. Unfortunately due to previous commitments of the tee on Tues morning, an earlier time or a shot gun were not an option at this time.

The next big event is the Club Championship Aug 10/11. There will be multiple flights playing off  various tees. This is a great opportunity to test your game and enjoy competing against your fellow members. There will  be a lunch and “Captain’s Bar” following the Sunday round.

In order to increase the playability and enjoyment of our great golf course we require the co-operation and participation of all our golfing members.

To that end we are initiating an “Adopt A Hole” program.

Jul 19
Wednesday replaces the regular Thursday Men's Night.  Each week will start with a free clinic at 1:00 p.m. and a shotgun at 1:30 p.m. for 18 holes and 3:00 p.m. for nine hole players. Optional dinner each week with different menus.

Putting accounts for 43% of your score in the game of golf.  Eliminating three putts is the simplest way to shoot lower scores.  This may seem crazy to some, but it may be better to stop thinking so hard about making your putts and focussing more on two putts per green.  Let me explain.
