is our first premium event at the better courses as requested by our
members. The entry count is
“very” low for a May event. May
and June have always been the events with the largest entry. With 198 entered in the April event we would anticipate
about 210 entries for May. We
have only 137! Why is this
important? Our guarantees at
each golf course are not being met which can cause future problems.
We need a better showing in the July and September premium events
to continue the premium event concept.
you withdrew from the rescheduled event on April 22 you have a $45 credit
for regular members and a $30 credit for package members.
The 24 players that withdrew should apply that credit on their
entry for their next event.
teams are being finalized this week and the pairings for this 48-player
event will be posted on the NIMAGA web site by May 12th.
No mailing will be sent if you noted that you had web access.
If you do not have web access the pairing will be mailed.
The event is on May 21st at the Tamarack Golf Club.
The defending champion team is the “B” Division.
NIMAGA WEB SITE
have asked “When will we post tee times or results on the web site?”
Our plan is to do so starting in July.
The first posting of a tee time sheet will be the NIMAGA Cup on May
12th. Do take a
look at WWW.NIMAGA.ORG for that posting.
The Dana Johnson memorial will be placed at
the fourth tee of the Buffalo Grove Golf Course around the Memorial Day
Weekend. An informal
gathering to dedicate the plaque will be held on Monday June 5th.
Remember that the deadline for each tournament
noted on the entry blank is a “received’ date not a postmarked
The July and September tournaments at
Carillon have changed from a 1st tee time at 12:00 PM to a 1st
tee time at 10:30 AM.
The course/slope rating sheets that were
available at the April event will also be available at the May event.
There will be no board meeting on May 1st.
The April NIMAGA notes addressed our
“proper conduct” and respect toward our fellow competitors.
Recent newspaper articles have portrayed
numerous incidences of “Golf Rage”.
Perhaps the leading cause of golf rage appears to be slow play.
Loud conduct and the feeling that “I’m paying a lot of money so
I’ll do what I want” also have led to golf rage.
The only minor problem in NIMAGA is when a
group is given a two-stroke penalty for slow play.
If this happens or if you are penalized for any reason lets
remember to exhibit “proper conduct”.
